It has been a bloody good year for the fans of the Souls games. In March 2015, the critically acclaimed Bloodborne was released to much fanfare. The soul and its connective tissue to the Dark Souls franchise was clearly there – but it was clearly its own beast.
Today, June 15th, 2015, the Dark Souls franchise makes its truimphant return with the worldwide premiere of a reveal trailer for Dark Souls 3 during Microsoft’s E3 2015 press conference and livestream.
The trailer is a grim, dreary, lifeless palette of muddled browns and grays with vistas of broken and ancient obelisks across the landscape. The classic, ironic, disturbing yet beautiful Gothic score accentuates the scene. And your head will explode at what horrors arise at the end of the trailer – a towering behemoth wielding a giant cleaver glowing with the fires of hell itself burning from inside its ghoulish frame.
No release date was announced in the reveal trailer, but we hope to hear more about this new installment in the future.
