An exclusive gameplay reveal video was released on IGN earlier today and game director Yui Tanimura explained a few of the improvements and focuses of Dark Souls II. The main improvement he elaborated on through a translator was the graphical quality.
One of the things we thought was critical to that was the graphical improvements for more reality, more realistic expressions of everything we want to show in the game.
The game looks great and seems just as jam-packed full of insane enemies and tons of new ways to die as the first Dark Souls. With so many of my Twinfinite coworkers avid players of the original, you can be sure that we’ll be eagerly waiting for any additional news.
