A dark and brooding fantasy adventure awaits players in a vast twisted world full of fearsome beasts, devious traps and hidden secrets.

Dark Souls III is the latest chapter in the critically acclaimed Dark Souls series with its trademark sword and sorcery combat and rewarding action RPG gameplay. Players will travel across a wide variety of locations in an interconnected world of unrelenting challenge and deep RPG gameplay as they search for a way to survive the coming apocalypse. 

As fires fade and the world falls into ruin.

Now only embers remain...

  • Phantoms: Catch glimpses of other online players facing the same challenges and secrets lurking around every corner. Studying them may give you small hints of where to go and what to do next. Players can summon when they use an item called Ember. Using an ember grants players opportunity to temporarily restore the power of the Lord of Cinder to the player character. When the player dies they will lose the power of fire until another ember is consumed.
  • Bloodstains: Bloodstains litter the ground and are the sign of another player's death. Touching them will show you how a player died, providing clues of unseen dangers up ahead.
  • Messages: Create messages on the ground to help or hinder player progress, the choice is up to you. Players can read messages left behind throughout the world and rate them "fine" or "foul". Each time your message is rated your HP is half restored and the message remains in the world for a longer duration of time. Conversely, your message can earn a bad reputation with messages meant to trick other players.
  • Co-op Summoning: Players can summon another player into their world for co-op gameplay.
  • Dark Spirit Invasions: The Dark Spirit of an online player invades another player's game and introduces a dangerous enemy into their world.

Key Features:

  • Dynamic lighting and particle effects immerse players into a dark fantasy world of ruin.
  • Expertly crafted world encourages players to explore vast and breathtaking landscapes.
  • Diversifies combat action allowing players to craft their own unique play style.
  • Evolution of trademark online multiplayer functionality that seamlessly integrates online interactions into single player story
