We’ve known since the launch of Dark Souls III that there would be two major story DLCs for the game and as of this morning, we know some of the details of the first one!
Ashes of Ariandel will be releasing on the 25th of October.
Here’s a little trailer:
The Ashes of Ariandel DLC will take place, as the name suggests, in Ariandel. You will take to the desolate land to fight baddies, both big and small, discover new covert lore and find some new gear.
The way Bandai Namco put it is:
“Players are tasked to enter the land of Ariandel and defeat the evil within to uncover the mystery of what has caused the land to become defiled. In addition to adding a new environment to Dark Souls III, the Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel expansion will also include new weapons, armor sets, and magic for players to discover and experiment with, as well as new features for the game’s wildly popular competitive multiplayer mode.”
Dark Souls III has been one of the best games I have played this year. It was my first real dive into anything from From Software and I am glad there’s going to be more of it. You can pick up the Season Pass now for $25USD on Steam and the game itself appears to be on sale for a little while longer!
