Scimitar and mace gameplay
Dark Souls III is still about two months away, with it being set to launch on April 12 in the West. Two months may seem like a long time, so why not watch this new gameplay video to tide you over until then?
This archive of a recent From Software stream shows off how the knight and cleric classes play, as well as some of the fancy new attacks the scimitars and maces can pull off. My favourite is the scimitar’s spinning slashy-slash barrage, which looks like something out of Power Rangers. It’s silly, and in games as grimdark and desolate as Dark Souls, it’s nice to see.
I also really like how much faster the game continues to look, even for the chunkier classes like the knight. I’ve always opted for high-speed, low-health strength builds in Souls games, so zipping around in Dark Souls III looks set to be a lot of fun.
