Namco Bandai has released a brand-new trailer for Dark Souls II, which not only provides a look at some previously unseen gameplay footage but also acts as confirmation that the game will be as balls-bustingly hard as franchise fans have come to expect. So if you were worried this game was going to be “too easy”, rest assured, there will be no mercy!
This “Cursed” trailer also gives the player character a small bit of backstory about how he or she is cursed to roam the land of Drangleic (which appears to be Hell’s ninth circle) and essentially fight a never-ending stream of increasingly powerful monsters, until he or she dies.
Again, Mercy: there will be none of it.
The brutally perilous trek through Dark Souls II will begin on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on March 11.
