Dark Souls 3 was officially announced at this year’s E3. Such an early announcement, just a few months after the release of Bloodborne, confused many gamers, who started worrying that the beloved studio turned into another Ubisoft and Activision, known for producing slightly different versions of the same game every year. However, Hidetaka Miyazaki, the creator of the series, has assured that there is nothing to worry about, as Dark Souls 3 has been in the works for two years already.
At E3, From Software, the developer of the game, demonstrated a new game system called Weapon Arts, which is now known as the Battle Arts, or simply martial arts. This is definitely one of the most interesting new elements in the game that allows for much more powerful attacks. Also, Hidetaka Miyazaki stated that Dark Souls 3 will reveal a lot more story elements this time and they will be closely linked to the events of the first Dark Souls game. As you know, Dark Souls' lore is one of the most mysterious and widely discussed topics among the fans.
Anyway, this is a good start, but a lot of unrevealed questions still remain behind the curtains. Of course, it’s a great marketing strategy, which helps build more hype, but the fans want to know more, and this is where speculations begin. This list highlights some of the most important things that the community wants to see in Dark Souls 3.
