Dark Souls II Tagline

Dark Souls II, is a fantasy action-RPG game developed by From Software and is a follow up to Dark Souls. It was announced on December 7, 2012. The game is being published for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC by Namco Bandai Games. Dark Souls II was released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 11, 2014 in North America; it was released on March 13th in Japan and Australia and March 14th in Europe. The PC version will be released on April 25th, 2014.[2]


The story of Dark Souls II is not directly connected to Dark Souls, though they are set in the same world.[3] The protagonist finds themselves in Drangleic, a once prosperous land which has fallen to ruin, in search of a cure for their affliction, the curse of the Undead.


Similar to the previous title, players customize the gender and physical features of their character in addition to choosing a starting class, which determine the stats and equipment that the player begins with, and a starting gift. From a third-person perspective, players explore a continuous, open world that is roughly the same size as the original game, but with more freedom in how the player can progress.[4] Akin to the notorious difficulty of its predecessor, players are confronted by a persistently hostile environment with unrelenting enemies and bosses – death is a central theme. As enemies are defeated, souls are accumulated, acting as both a currency and means to increase attributes.

Special EditionsEdit

Pre-ordering Dark Souls II through either Gamestop or Amazon will allow the choice of two special editions:

  • Collector's Edition. This special edition includes a 12-inch warrior knight figurine, art book, cloth map of the game area, plus the Black Armor Edition of the game. However, in some regions, this edition may have pre-sold out.
