With reports obtained from IGN, The Know and Game Informer, it would appear that Dark Souls III is indeed being made, with rumors suggesting that the game will be making an appearance at next week’s E3.
From what we can gather, Dark Souls III is set to include 4 player co-op, 10 playable classes, 45 new enemies, 15 new bosses, 100 new weapons and 40 new armor sets. As well as this, the game is said to have over 60 minutes of original cut-scenes, all running through the in-game engine.
In regards to gameplay changes, Dark Souls III is said to include a whole new summoning based system entitled “sacrifice rituals”. With this, players can sacrifice bodies in order to enter players worlds, summon Bonfires or call upon other NPC’s to the these locations.
Another interesting gameplay mechanic is the supposed “heat-up” feature, which is rumored to ultimately change the forms of enemy bosses into more nightmarish looking appearances. These changes will be entirely based on how players interact within the in-game world, supposedly with how many times they perform sacrifices.
Dark Souls III is said to be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One “early 2016”, with a PC release apparently “negotiable” at this point in time. In the meantime, feel free to check out these supposed leaked screenshots sourced from The Know and Game Informer.
