The Dark Souls series stands as the action RPG reference. Immerse yourself in a dark fantasy world filled with colossal enemies, deeply rooted lore and engaging online multiplayer. Dark souls 3 is an action role playing game played in a third-person perspective set in the kingdom of Lothric.
The player is tasked to survive an oncoming apocalypse brought about by the ongoing conflict between the age of fire and those branded with the Dark Sign as with previous iterations of the series. To survive this event the player character must face the Lords of Cinder, previous heroes who linked the fire, as the cycle of Light and Dark continues players are equipped with a variety of weapons to fight against enemies, such as bows, throwable projectiles, and swords. Shields can act as secondary weapons but they are mainly used to deflect enemies’ attacks and protect the player from suffering damage. Each weapon has two basic types of attack, one being a standard attack, and the other being slightly more powerful that can be charged up. Throughout the game, players encounter different types of enemies, each with different behaviors. Some of them change their combat pattern during battles. New combat features are introduced in this game including weapon and shield skills. The game places more focus on role-playing; the expanded character builder and improved weapons provide the player with more tactical options. Players are able to reallocate stat points as well as reconfigure character creation at the Rosaria’s Bedchamber bonfire in the Cathedral of the Deep up to five times per play through.
In addition, the game offers a Co-op code system where you can input a code under the network tab in the options menu. This Code bypasses all cooperative gameplay mechanics to play with friends. During this session, weapons from more powerful players are scaled down to match the lower level cooperators weapon enhancement. This is intended to balance cooperative play. Over all this game is indeed stunning. Worth to recommend! Happy playing folks! 😊
