Dust off your knight armor and limber up those thumbs in anticipation: the Dark Souls 3 gameplay trailer has arrived, and boy howdy was it worth the wait.
After a cinematic reveal at this year’s E3, gameplay (yes, actual bonafide gameplay. Not just deceitful cut-scenes and lies) has now been revealed as part of Microsoft’s briefing at Gamescom.
Enemies look just as screwed up as they always have (it’s not their fault they’re undead) and bosses look like they’re going to be just as varied, with enough dragons, giants and armored monstrosities to keep you happily (and not so happily) suffering gruesome deaths for hours on end.
But enough talk watch it. Watch it. WATCH IT.
Prepare to cry before you die though, as the actual game’s not coming until early next year.
Watch this space.
