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.
