The Dark Souls sequel, Dark Souls II may be launching on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, but it looks just as incredible as anything coming to Xbox One or PS4. The brief footage shown at the Microsoft E3 presentation certainly bulwarks my faith in the sequel. I do think it’s a bit odd that From Software is showing Dark Souls II off at the Microsoft presser rather than at Sony’s later this evening, given From Software’s past relationship with Sony.
We see some really interesting stuff in the new footage. A mirror-and-thorns shield, for one thing. Swordplay, meanwhile, looks familiar but perhaps a bit more dynamic. There are some really cool looking bosses, too—one silver giant with a crown of thorns; a massive skeletal dragon.
