Dark Souls 2 Official Website

Developed by From Software, Dark Souls 2 is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Dark Souls, an action RPG with estimated sales of over 1.5 million units. The original game's appeal lay with its renowned difficulty and trial-and-error approach, one that Dark Souls 2 promises to sustain.
As of the 24th of March, 100 million souls have died on PS3, and 35 million souls have died on Xbox 360.


Regarding The Software

  • The game is not a direct sequel to Dark Souls.
  • As the game's protagonist, the players will embark on a journey to remove from themselves the affliction of a curse.
  • Bonfires and covenants return, as do gestures.
  • The difficulty level will remain, with the focus staying on learning from death to overcome challenges. The variety in ways to die has been prioritized but the focus is still on fairness.
  • Story is presented in the same fashion as Demon's and Dark, unobtrusive and discoverable by players who wish to dig deeper.
  • A new graphics engine was created to address frame-rate issues and give the development team an extra tool in creating atmosphere. PC will run at 60 fps and Console versions will run at 30 fps.

      While I love this game, it sometimes reeks of troubled development.
      To be fair, Dark Souls 1 has this problem as well. (Lost Izalith could've been the best area in the game if they had more time)

        I like how wacky this game is; the weird hand things in black gulch being a good example. They're just hand snake things that live in oil. Why? Who knows! It's great

          Lol this is truly the wild Wild West! I love and hate this game like every game. I love it when I’m winning and hate it when I’m losing.

            Objectively bad game with some fun sections. No wonder Miyazaki came back, he realized how badly he ****ed up when giving DS2 to an intern. Hopefully that guy either learned how to properly create games or got fired.

            • Patrick Bateman : Do you like Huey Lewis and The News?

              Paul Allen : They're OK.

              Patrick Bateman : Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.

              Paul Allen : Hey Halberstram.

              Patrick Bateman : Yes, Allen?

              Paul Allen : Why are there copies of the style section all over the place, d-do you have a dog? A little chow or something?

              Patrick Bateman : No, Allen.

              Paul Allen : Is that a rain coat?

              Patrick Bateman : Yes it is! In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself.

              [raises axe above head]

              Patrick Bateman : Hey Paul!

              [he bashes Allen in the head with the axe, and blood splatters over him]

              Patrick Bateman : TRY GETTING A RESERVATION AT DORSIA NOW, YOU ****ING STUPID BASTARD! YOU, ****ING BASTARD!

                Having day 1 release played DS2, I am pretty sure that Original DS2 was the best DS. Scholar came in and changed far too much. It isn't bad, but it is very dumb'd down to casual trash level. Saddening, you really hate to see it.

                  Still holding the crown for the best pvp game fromsoft has ever made.

                  I know, it's a low bar to reach. But what did you expect? Miyazaki's pvp balancing is as incompetent as shown in elden ring.

                    i have just started NG+3 i am getting worried if enemies will deal almost my HP (my HP is 85) because when i played this game on xbox 360 i am just on NG+6 and enemies deal almost my HP especially dark lurker, i tried dodging but i still got hit, so i quited the game without raging, 1 week later i bought SOTFS on ps4 and think SOTFS might reduce damage and i think bastard sword will get me to the end of the game so can the bastard sword carry to the end of the game in NG+8 and so on? if it doesnt then what weapon shall i use? i don't want a weapon that looks like sht especially giant warrior club or smelter hammer

                                      • unfortunately we don't have as many groups on ds2 as ds1 (4 gwyn knight's, sons of gwyn, lords, you and npc's) ds2 only has Vendrick and his knights (only 3 guys, we would have more if Sir Syan showed up) daughters of manus and you and npc's

                                            Why don't you actually spend time learning how the game works and adapting to it instead of crying over a game punishing you for not following it's rules?

                                            "waaah this is not like ind ds1 or ds3 i can't spam the rolls waaah i have to wait for my character to turn his face to the enemy instead of attacking right after a roll because my character can't turn instantly after a roll waaah". You re too accustomed to the shortcuts. Is this how useless you become when daddy miyazaki leaves the house? Pathetic.

                                              I killed all the bosses required to open the door to get to strangle if, the door next to the ivory king dlc but it still tells me to look for mightier souls: does this mean I have to use a bonfire ascetic on each of the bosses bonfires to do it again or is there a step I’m missing?

                                                    • many say that most of the maps look like just vidio game levels (not by me), but Anor Londo on ds1 doesn't make any centido, why is the castle a maze? Who exactly are these rooms?
                                                      in dragleic castle, there are at least doors that don't open, giving the excuse that there could be the kitchen or things a castle needs

                                                          Miyazaki entered the online aspects (pvp) of a videogame with demon's souls, and had 3 more games to develop a solid online system. And the one who got the concepts right was the one he wasn't involved in, wich is this game. Yeah, we all like to sht on soul memory, but because of that, twink builds and gank squads aren't a thing.

                                                          Ds1 was instant backstab + poise, bloodborne was non-existent because of all those bell mechanics and ds3 was one gankfest after another. If you ever expect elden ring to have decent pvp, make sure it's handled by the "b team".

Some scientists even offered a compromise, using the word “wavicle.” How scientists answer the question will depend on how they try to measure photons. It’s possible to set up experiments where photons behave like particles, and others where they behave like waves. But it’s impossible to measure them as waves and particles at the same time
