The week before E3 is always fraught with rumors and rumors of rumors. As this week begins, the news has come down the pike that Dark Souls III is on its way later this week. A series of screenshots was 'leaked' and The Know has put together a video to show them off.
The world will have around 12 areas, containing 45 new enemies and 15 new bosses, plus 100 new weapons and 40 new armour sets. There will be 60 minutes of cutscenes, suggesting a greater emphasis on story than in previous Souls games.
The biggest element revealed in the leak is “Sacrifice Ceremonies” where you can sacrifice enemies in a ritual which will take you into another player's game. When in another player’s game you’ll have a bounty on your head, and other players will be out to kill you. Performing a sacrifice will light a bonfire, too.
Stay tuned to MMORPG.com next week for our 'boots on the ground' coverage of E3, including the imminent Dark Souls III announcement.
