On Oct. 25, Bandai Namco and From Software will launch Ashes of Ariandel, the very first of two planned downloadable content addendums to Dark Souls 3. But since the game’s initial announcement at E3 2015, certainly where an press release called it as “the final episode,” fans have wondered if this sounds like really the end for Dark Souls.
Polygon had the opportunity speak with From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki, who also directed the original Dark Souls and Dark Souls 3, for the Tokyo Game Show. We asked him directly when the two DLC packs from your latest game will mark the conclusion on the series in its entirety, and hubby responded having an immediate, no-hesitation “Yes,” before laughing.
“It’s time for you to move away on the Dark Souls franchise,” Miyazaki said. “As president of From Software, I’m not completely denying the opportunity of bringing back the franchise later on. There could be another person in my company who would like to work on new installments. But we know that the series can easily after the two DLC.”
While not shying away in the potential for a predictable resurrection of Dark Souls during the distant future, Miyazaki proceeded to declare that what we’re more than likely to see are “HD remakes” of older games inside series on newer consoles. It’s unclear if From Software would envision these as common ports in the existing games to new hardware or higher full-on remakes with new or revised content.
Either way, for fans on the Dark Souls kind of gameplay, Miyazaki promised we now have nothing to stress about.
“I’m not implying I won’t focus on a Dark Souls-like game or even a dark fantasy game,” he was quoted saying. “We’d wish to carry over some from the good things in the franchise to new releases. As new technology is introduced, we would prefer to take what we should learned from Dark Souls and employ it in future IP.”
You can understand lots more information on the upcoming Dark Souls 3 Souls in your full report here.
Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel, will launch on Oct. 25 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. It will cost $14.99 naturally, or $24.99 for any season pass containing a second DLC pack. That second little bit of DLC — and, apparently, the past bit of new Dark Souls content we must expect for your foreseeable future — is going to be arriving time in “early 2017.”
