The second and last Dark Souls III DLC was announced not too much time ago and it is called “The Ringed City”. The announcement was made by the official Dark Souls website.
If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, take a look here:
I personally have really high expectations from “The Ringed City”, as it is the last, and yes, I really mean THE LAST content that will be added into any Dark Souls game, so I think all of us know why I want it to be good. The last DLC was “Ashes Of Ariandel” and that was just amazing, even though it was pretty short.
From what I have seen in the trailer, it will most likely take place in Londor: The land of Hollows, which is where Yuria and Yoel are from. Another thing that I have noticed is the word “city.” Yeah it’s not that great, I think everybody noticed that, but do you remember when the last time From Software put a city in a game? It was Bloodborne, back in 2015, and that game was just spectacular! The level design in Yharnam, the first city area, was great, and seeing that is a game like Dark Souls 3 would be awesome and a must-buy.
More on the trailer, there is a GIANT! Will there be a giant boss fight? We don’t know, but I definetly hope so! I really enjoyed the Yhorm The Giant fight in the vanilla game, contrary to most popular opinions. The fact that you have to fight this giant Lord of Cinder sounds so cool to me! Maybe that is because the standard definition of a boss fight is, for me, a fight against a giant guy with pretty telegraphed, but high-damage attacks. Still, I would love to see a boss like Yhorm in this DLC! The boss that was already confirmed is some kind of gargoyle-dragon creature and it would appear that it is on fire, which is pretty badass in itself. It seems to be pretty agressive with its attacks, but I cannot currently confirm that, but overall it looks like it will be a good and difficult boss.
To sum it all up, I personally have really high expectations for the last DLC for Dark Souls in general. I trust that From Software will offer the series a damn good farewell!
