Dark Souls


Dark Souls

Developed by FromSoftware, Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to the Playstation exclusive Demon’s Souls, an action RPG experience that surprised by not only gaining critical acclaim, but obtaining publishing in 3 regions and racking estimated sales of over 1 million units.

The original game’s appeal lay with its renowned difficulty and trial-and-error approach, one that Dark Souls looked to sustain, thus attracting Demon’s Souls’ fanbase. The developer and publisher had both stated that there were no intentions for DLC however, following the release of the Prepare to Die Edition for PC with added content, an expansion DLC was released for both PS3 an Xbox360, titled Artorias of the Abyss.

Dark Souls Remastered is an updated version of Dark Souls releasing on May 25th 2018 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A Nintendo Switch version will be released later in the year. The updated version of the game features graphical enhancements as well as an expanded online mode.

The world of Dark Souls is a world of cycles. Kingdoms rise and fall, ages come and go, and even time can end and restart as the flame fades and is renewed. These cycles are linked to the First Flame, a mysterious manifestation of life that divides and defines separate states such as heat and cold, or life and death. As the first Flame fades, these differences also begin to fade, such as life and death having little distinction, and humans becoming Undead. The onset of an Age of Dark, the time when the First Flame has fully died, is marked by endless nights, rampant undeath, time, space, and reality breaking down, lands collapsing and converging on one another, people mutating into monsters, darkness covering the world, and the Gods losing their power. To avoid this and prolong the Age of Fire, the bearer of a powerful soul must link themselves to the First Flame, becoming the fuel for another age. If this is not done, the First Flame will eventually die, and an Age of Dark will begin.

The powerful Lord Souls were taken from the First Flame, used to defeat the dragons, and then to establish kingdoms. Souls are inextricably (and inexplicably) linked to fire. Souls are life, and life is fire; it stands to reason that souls are fire, as well. Without the First Flame and without souls, there is no life. The bearer of a strong soul, called a Lord, who links themselves to the First Flame, is thus rekindling the flames with their own soul, returning life to it. In the end, one could expect that all souls will have been returned to the First Flame, and the Age of Fire will have effectively ended anyways.
