Dark Souls to Launch in October 2011
Spiritual successor to PlayStation 3 system exclusive Demons Souls winner of GameSpots "Overall Game of the Year" and "Best PS3 Game", and IGNs "Best RPG for PS3" awards Dark Souls also brings that game's uniquely challenging and rewarding style of gameplay to the Xbox 360 for the first time. Stricken by the curse of undead, gamers are abolished to the northern realms and must battle hideous demons and unimaginable monsters to collect souls and find the Eternal Flame of Life, which is losing its light, to survive and cure the curse of undead. With tense dungeon crawling and fearsome enemy encounters, the seamlessly intertwined world of Dark Souls is full of extreme battles, rewarding challenges, nuanced weaponry and magic, and the flexibility to customize each character to suit any desired play style. The innovative online component allows gamers to draw from the collective experience of the Dark Souls community as they either help or sabotage each other on the journey through the Northern Realms to save the land from darkness. With a massive, seamless open world design, Dark Souls encourages deep exploration and an adaptable gameplay experience.
