New Dark Souls II Screenshot and Artwork Galore

By Marc Hollinshead, 2 years ago
What is it about Dark Souls II that makes me get more and more excited every time I see new screenshots? Is it the graphics? The PvP? The monsters? The cool looking armour? Or is it the fact that death seems to be at every turn and only the bravest of the brave may enter? I think it's the latter. In this latest batch of shots, we see all of that and more. It looks like some of the game's key characters are being revealed as well.

A helping of artwork of some of the characters has also been showcased. It is likely that we will be needing the help of these people a fair bit in our journey. Unless they're evil, then we'll be wanting to get out of there as fast as possible. We also have the names of these mysterious individuals as well.

You will usually find him getting stuck into story heavy action-adventure games, RPG's and the odd quirky title when he isn't raving about Dark Souls and Mass Effect. Outside the world of gaming, Marc attends and helps out in his church on a regular basis and has a not-so thrilling job in a supermarket.
