Two and a half years later, the sequel of Dark Souls got released. You are continuing your journey with a desire to break the curse.
You came to Drangleic to break the undead curse, but you will end up following a path laid out for you by the Herald
The game has great lore, although it is not given to you. Vendrick
seems to have been a chosen undead (Possibly YOU from Dark Souls ?) Chancellor Wellager
says : "He vanquished the four Great Ones, and built this kingdom upon their souls." Very interesting indeed.
It shares the same mechanics with some new ones. When it comes to challenge it is basically the same. NG+ will give you some new enemies and red phantoms, upgraded rings and better drop rate on certain items. The difficulty will increase until you reach NG+7 like the previous game. Soul Memory [Total souls collected] is a new thing and prevents low level griefers. The game will now match you up with people in your SM range. NG players will not be able to play with NG+ players no matter what their SM is. A rather good invention although I miss invading new people with high end weapons and gear...
Multiplayer aspect of the game is getting better along with the patches. Unbalanced weapons, armor, rings and spells have been mostly fixed. Only major problem must be the amount of hackers and lag. There will be some lag depending on peoples internet connection. But there is of course something wrong when both players has decent internet speed and gets alot of lag. But overall a solid game and a must buy for RPG fans.
