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?

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Gameplay and Boss Battle

Take a look at the extended gameplay and boss battle of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice from Tokyo Game Show 2018.

From the very moment upcoming action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is revealed on the E3 2018 press conference, both developer From Software and publisher Activision knew that they got everyone hooked.

Through previous video footage, we had brief glances at in-game moments from the game where the shinobi warrior displayed his feats and fighting abilities against enemy, we never really had some continued gameplay that would at least lead to something.

Keeping that in mind, creators of the game have offered a first look at extended gameplay that leads the protagonist to Corrupted Monk and engaged in a boss-battle, straight out of TGS 2018.

Courtesy of PlayStation Underground, the video focuses on a chapter from a journey for vengeance that the one-armed wolf has taken. It begins on a hilly area and Sekiro lands his first kill by stabbing an enemy on his throat that leads to a blood squirting.

He then jumps up from one location to another using his grappling hook before delivering a kill-shot to another enemy. Then came a mid-boss named Samurai General, who is strong, skilled and very patient to drop his blow in time.

The game actually rewards the player for being aggressive in a fight but you have to be tricky about dodging into enemy attacks to hit them rather than running away from them and perfecting that feat may take time for some.

After finishing a few more weak enemies he takes a stealthy road to another angry adversary who is waiting to be unhinged and refills his healing bar by checking to a Sculpture's Idol. This crazy brute goes down with more stabbing and flame attacks as he is weak to fire.

Next up on his list is to reach to a castle on the other side of the rock but due to the bridge being broken, he had to take sideways. A monstrous white snake comes out making mountains rumble and hiding into a nearby cave was the best option at the moment.

Sliding through a trapdoor, the shinobi reaches to another checkpoint before confronting the Corrupted Monk boss. She is a tough cookie and this is where the death and resurrection mechanics come to play, which you can see for yourself.

Scheduled to release on March 22, 2019, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will come out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Pre-order for the game is already open now for both standard and collector's edition.

Although the game isn't as hard as hell like the Dark Souls series or turn out extremely punishing like Bloodborne but is surely doesn't shy away from some violent bloodbath either. In fact, it meshes so well with the gameplay mechanics that none of that will feel unnatural.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice TGS Trailer

New Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice trailer showcases brutal aerial combat and gameplay before Tokyo Game Show 2018.

First developer From Software made people believe that they are working on a new Dark Souls project, then before they unveiled their upcoming action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at E3 2018 press conference, some even predicted of a sequel for Bloodborne.

Tokyo Game Show is still not here yet but ahead of more than a week; a new trailer for the game is dropped today, which is mostly focused on gameplay while an ongoing narration is going on in the background.

The clip opens up with a village engulfed in flame while it is raining at night and nearby, we see the bloodied, fallen body of the hero and then we are quickly taken to the action-packed segment for more gore moments.

Combat system of the game remains the main focal point of the full video and it only reflects on how quick and deadly the shinobi protagonist actually is. How he cunningly employs stealth when needed and shots his grappling hook for movement is a true spectacle.

He doesn't hesitate to mercilessly cut through his enemies like dogs and each of his blows draw rush of blood you have seen before in Kill Bill movie. It also appears that the sword he wields has some magic within it as some of his enemies are seen turning into red cloudy dust upon being hit by it.

Then again, his samurai opponents from the Ashina clan are quite formidable if you look at their appearance or powers at their disposal and have some intimidating boss characters as well.

Although it was near impossible to understand any meaning to those background recitations in Japanese without any subtitles, the shinobi made his intentions quite obvious with his deeds. Currently, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is scheduled to launch on 22 March, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Since we already got trailer ahead of TGS 2018, chances are we will witness more of the ninja warrior in impressive gameplay footage or perhaps a new story trailer may get released.

Activision and From Software announced that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be arriving on all major platforms in March 22, 2019.

When developer From Software initially teased about their new project in with a brief clip back in December, players thought it to be sequel of Bloodborne series but as soon as they dropped a trailer at E3 2018 press conference, everyone started comparing the game to their popular Dark Souls series. However, none of these claims about upcoming action-adventure title Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is true and currently we have a scheduled date for the game set on 22 March, 2019.

Although the game is not a copy of Dark Souls, you sure can expect to die every now and then because you can always come back using an ability called "Resurrect" almost instantly after you are taken down by an enemy and that reference is already given in the game title.

The story of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is of a shinobi named Sekiro, who is also known as the one-armed wolf and it all takes place on the Sengoku-era Japan. He is quite good in combat with katana against a group of enemies while his prosthetic arm as a lot of potential for an array of attacks using his sword or grappling hook. This ninja warrior is on a quest to rescue his master and finish his arch-nemesis for good to complete his journey.

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.

Dark Souls: Remastered Nintendo Switch Release Date

Undead fans rejoice as long-awaited Nintendo Switch version of Dark Souls: Remastered finally gets a release date.

Fans had been petitioning to get a remastered version of action role-playing original Dark Souls from developer From Software and publisher Bandai Namco for longer than you think. They even got that wish fulfilled as Dark Souls: Remastered is currently available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unfortunately, Nintendo Switch version was left out and delayed to summer 2018 by the publisher to an unspecified release date. Today, that day is announced on Twitter to be October 19, 2018.

Those who were eager to explore Lordran in their next gen Nintendo handheld console on the go can now finally look forward to this because Artorias of the Abyss DLC is also included in the package.

Apparently, Bandai Namco is also interested in holding a network test online for the Switch version before it launches but we don't have much detail on the fact just yet. Dark Souls: Remastered will run on Switch at 30 FPS and 1080p resolution if played on a TV set. The improved rates in better resolution let you enjoy the creepy vibe of the series more intensely. Although there are accusations of the game being extremely difficult, it yet leaves a long-lasting memorable impression on your mind.

Dark Souls: Remastered is Discounted for PC

Those who already own Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition from Steam will get 50% off on Dark Souls Remastered.

Following an announcement in January, we know now that publisher Bandai Namco will release a Remastered version of From Software's original Dark Souls as Dark Souls: Remastered for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Back then, there was also an argument over whether or not fans who already own a copy on PC and the responses came from publisher's spokesperson seemed more confusing and contradicting than our own guesses. Finally, it has come to an end.

Initially after announcement a few months back, we came to know from Bandai Namco that the game will be available on all platforms for a same price and there will be no discount. They came clean by stating that rumor of a discount came from an error on their e-commerce site, which has since been removed. Later, another post on Steam forums by new community manager for Bandai Namco neither denies nor confirms what to expect on the discounted price topic at all.

RELATED: Dark Souls: Remastered New Gameplay

Finally we can come clear on this to end all conflict of information by declaring that if you already have owned Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on Steam then you would get a 50% discount on Dark Souls: Remastered after it is launched. The remastered version is originally priced $39.99, so at half-price, it's like you are getting an upgrade for the game on PC. However, the "Prepare To Die" edition that came with added DLC along with the main game will be removed from Valve's store within May 9.

RELATED: Wolfenstein II Nintendo Switch Release Date

Many players will still be complaining even after the price reduction because a remastered edition is nothing much but mostly a graphically enhanced version and we really cannot argue on that point as it is true. Besides, none of the developer or publisher has revealed anything about including new features or so. There is no scope of price cut for any console owners as this title was not released on any other platforms than PC. We just hope that the game fares better in providing experience than various PC mods out there.

Also, did we mention that Bandai Namco has dropped another brief gameplay trailer from the re-release to remind us what is waiting in there to creep upon players? It is right below for you to check out.

Dark Souls is considered as one of the best action role-playing game ever made and there has been request for Remastered edition for quite long and scheduled for May 25 release on all the mentioned consoles above except Switch, which will debut on Nintendo's hybrid platform at a later date. It seems that just like the game itself, the road to Lordran is filled with preemptive trouble before you even engage in fight with demons and wraiths during your in-game quests.

However, planned versions for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are still coming out the same day. Though they have not specified the nature of their causality which caused the delay, we have one very simple theory in mind. It seems that Switch port was being developed by a different team other than the ones who worked for console editions and they have faced some unexpected problem that would take time to solve.

The network test on Nintendo eShop is still due following their initial announcement of this project.

Dark Souls: Remastered was promised to us to deliver enhanced 4K resolution and improved frame rate. It makes us think too that what might possibly happen to a game that showcased a steady gameplay at PAX East, which eventually pushed back their deadline for the time being. If this attempt to remaster project is successful with support from fans then From Software may consider about Dark Souls II and Dark Souls III as well.

May 25, 2018 will see the release of Dark Souls: Remastered on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The appeal for the original title hasn't faded a little in past seven years.

Dark Souls: Remastered New Gameplay

Many revelatory action RPG came and go, Dark Souls II and Dark Souls III were released, Sony released PlayStation 4 console but still, we very much needed Dark Souls: Remastered. Bandai Namco seriously deserves some praise to bring back tons of fans' dreams into life by working on it. Fans worldwide are just not waiting for a full remake treatment but need added content and improvements on original title.

As a courtesy of PlayStation Underground, we have exclusive gameplay footage from world of Dark Souls: Remastered in 4K!




The exclusive gameplay showed above is captured in 4k resolution and 60 FPS as a preview of how things are going to be in Remastered Edition.

Getting back at it with protagonist Chosen Undead is like a ride back memory lane exploring open world of Lordran around you as you cautiously take your steps behind a shield. Veteran players had also taken time adjusting to the gameplay at start. If you were a skilled player of your time then figuring out playing part once again with Dark Souls: Remastered will be no problem for you. Your undead adversaries will fall before you as you constantly make progress.

World of Dark Souls

Players who have been through Bloodborne and Dark Souls III know how it is around with a mob on your tail. In comparison to that, original Dark Souls can be pretty quiet and lonely. Well, don't just get depressed just yet. Plenty of booby traps and sudden ambush attacks every now and then will keep things exciting for you. That's right. All the items and enemies are right there for you. So, keep your eyes open to protect your hide from those sneaky undead residents.

A fine aspect is of course the soundtrack, which is out there blending perfectly with the environment yet it's almost non-existent. Your 4K-experience will be intensified if you just put a pair of headphones on. It will make boss killing moment or facing opponents like Black Knights or giant rats as real as it can get. Once you play the game, you will realize that they have done more changes and tweaks than a few visual upgrades.

Another great thing about Dark Souls: Remastered is that now it allows more players to join in. Originally, four-player were allowed to take part in their quest but six-players are accessible for multiplayer. Try imagining six friends who enjoys Dark Souls with somewhat same level of intensity in a same-room because, it is also coming to Switch.

Prepare Not to Die

Aside from playing at a 30 FPS rate and a 720p handheld mode, we believe it has great potential considering an exciting six person multiplayer mode. This could literally give the title an overwhelming reception from Switch owners and led to Remastered Editions of Dark Souls sequels. Although, TV mode offers you a 1080p display, having six television sets on a same room is very unlikely to happen.

Dark Souls was originally released for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by developer From Software and publisher Bandai Namco back in 2011. It has a notorious reputation for being ruthlessly difficult among fans but the sooner you will get a grip at what is going on and what you want to do, you will pass through pretty easily. Hold onto it and don't just leave the battlefield at first sign of trouble.
