Dark Souls 3 Secret Bonfire System Revealed

Early builds of Dark Souls 3 to include secret bonfire system and PvP invasion mechanics by developer From Software.

The third entry in the Dark Souls series from developer From Software and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment, Dark Souls III came out in early 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but still houses many unraveled mysteries for players to discover today.

Recently, a YouTuber named Lance McDonald has discovered a hidden multiplayer content that has been left within the game without completing and never revealing to the masses. Some of these were part of the original leak from the game before it was released. Sounds interesting, right?

Following is a video that McDonald has uploaded lately where he shows his findings step by step in playthrough.

An early leak before the launch of the game suggested that From Software was about to introduce a new mechanic where players could sacrifice enemies in a form of ritual, which will let them invade other players' game and even attack them.

The game's first downloadable content, Ashes of Ariandel had a dedicated PvP arena for players to duke it out but looks like, the developers originally intended to mix things up a little bit for player invasions with the new sacrifice mechanic.

Somehow, that gameplay system didn't end up getting included in the final version of Dark Souls III but McDonald has managed to dig up details on how it would have been. There is an unfinished Cult Death system for letting players drag down few Hollow NPCs to turn on cult bonfires.

While these portable bonfires would have allowed players to level up or reverse hollowing, there is another type of bonfire that can be created using Ceremony Swords and upon plunging it into an enemy corpse, it would lead to a cut-scene animation.

This ceremony was meant to trigger an eclipse that would let them to invade other players in darkened worlds to engage in PvP battles. Since they opted out from this at the last moment, the function doesn't work properly and player character is stuck there.

Whatever reasons From Software had for not including this into the final version of Dark Souls III, it could've been such a great fun. Who knows what else content have they scrapped ahead of launch like this alpha multiplayer system and hidden ceremonies?

Dark Souls 3 Mod Forces of Annihilation Out Now

Forces of Annihilation Mod for Dark Souls 3 let you stomp the Kingdom of Lothric as the game's fiercest enemies.

Ever wondered how fun experience it would be to play as the boss characters in notoriously tough action role-playing game Dark Souls III of developer From Software? Well, you can just stop wondering about that and simply check out the new Dark Souls 3 Forces of Annihilation Mod by team Datahacks. Currently available on Nexusmods, this free to download mod allows players to assume the role of dreaded boss characters or other enemies from the game they have faced before.

To give you the idea of how it is played out, we have a short demo of the Forces of Annihilation and this is brilliantly amazing. Enjoy!




RELATED: Dark Souls: Remastered New Gameplay

The demo features one of the Lords of Cinder bosses, Yhorm the Giant and shows how tables are turned when he is controlled by a player instead of AI. We see him get up from the large throne room to go outside laying waste to the Jailer Handmaids and fire-breathing Gargoyles with minimum effort. There is a sense of satisfaction playing as Yhorm because, whereas you had to strategize your moves to deal damage to him, you can just swing his gigantic machete at your disposal.

Yhorm quickly moves towards another passage, dealing with more Handmaids by unleashing the fury of his blade. Away from the halls, he heads over to the bridge and slays another Gargoyle with ease. Having an extended health bar for playing a boss character is satisfying and watching him weirdly climbing up a ladder was really funny. What is noticeable here is that a great deal of his speed has been traded for brute strength and these were of course by the original design of the character.

Datehacks modder team has done a fabulous job by creating the Forces of Annihilation Mod to make many Dark Souls III players' dream come true. If you require assistance installing the mods, there is a three part video tutorial on YouTube that explains the whole process of adding it to the game to play as the bosses and their movesets along with camera control. Step by step the developers are adding more enemies to the fold and updating the mod as all of them are not yet available.
