Souls fans are in for another treat in 2016 following the release of Bloodborne this year. The fourth installment in the Souls series, Dark Souls 3, is scheduled for released in April 2016. Just like the previous installments, Dark Souls 3 is going to be an action RPG played in a third person perspective.
According to the game's director Hidetaka Miyazaki, the gameplay design is going to follow closely to that of Dark Souls 2. New combat features for Dark Souls 3 includes "Ready Stance" that are special abilities that allow the player to deal much more damage to enemies than normal attacks.
Small gravestones will light up when interacted with, serving as torches but also will provide additional lore to the game. Combat is being made faster and more fluid than in Dark Souls 2. Several player movements such as backstepping and swinging heavy weapons are more rapid.
The game will feature fewer maps than that of the previous game, but they will be interconnected and larger to encourage exploration. Dark Souls 3 is looking to be another great Souls game with improved gameplay; character developed, additional features and it looks just gorgeous.
