I haven’t revisited Dark Souls 3 since devoting a week of my life to it back when it was released. Being forced back into the world of Lothric wasn’t as jarring as I would have imagined. It feels good to swing a sword, cast some spells, and pick up the game again. This time I head into the first piece of downloadable content titled Ashe...

The Souls series has had a lot of digital ink spilled over it in these parts. I was the lone fan of Demon's Souls until our good friend Andrew Gaskill came along and penned tens of thousands of words about that game and Dark Souls for us. His enthusiasm snared our editorial community, drawing in our own Locke Vincent and eventually Jason Love j...

How many players can play Dark Souls 3 online? How do you begin a co-op session in Dark Souls 3? How does save game progress work for co-op play in Dark Souls 3? Can I join a game if the host is further along than me in Dark Souls 3? What if I want to play with my friends? How do the covenants in Dark Souls 3 affect co-op? Can a summoned player ruin my game? I see people that look like ghosts running around in my game, who are they? I see all these orange messages on the ground, what do they do? A couple notes about co-op:

The most common crash PC players are encountering for now is the game crashing when you get to the main hub, the Firelink Shrine. There are a few different fixes being tossed around out there, and the most common three appear to be as follows:

So far, Dark Souls 3 feels like a more refined version of what we've come to expect, except this time it seems to come with a heaping dose of series nostalgia. If this isn't your first rodeo, there are plenty of sights that should trigger familiar feelings. I'm enjoying it so far, and if the series is your thing, I think you will too.

It's always a tough call to say what is or isn't spoilers with a Souls game, so for those of you who prefer to know as little as possible, thanks for coming this far, but you should probably turn back now and avoid the video. For everyone else, enjoy the spectacle!

The other good news here is that, hopefully, it means the game will not only look beautiful while running, but that it will be as playable in 60 FPS as it would at 30 FPS. One of the main gameplay mechanics in the Souls franchise is timing your character's rolls to avoid enemy attacks. Previous PC ports that allowed the game (which was usually set to a lower FPS rate for consoles) to run at a higher frame rate meant that the actual frames of invincibility you had in that roll changed or were halved. It was enough of a difference to the fans of the series that there were several posts from players recommending other players to limit the FPS to 30.

Let's be honest here; at this point, you already know if you're going to be playing Dark Souls 3 or not. Some new video isn't going to convince you one way or another. I mean, really, Bandai Namco should have just said "eff it, use the original recording" in this video instead of their grim dark version. Although I suppose doing so would have gotten them flagged by YouTube for content and the video would have subsequently been pulled down.

Many of the images in this video have previously been seen in other promotional materials for the game. This is the first time, however, that there is some degree of story alongside all of it. What's more, the narration seems to hint at the possible presence of familiar landmarks and environments from previous Souls titles as Lothric is a place where "the transitory lands of the Lords of Cinder converge."

One quick note for anyone who is particular about foreknowledge of the game, there is some information about the names of characters and locations in the world revealed in the rest of this news post and in the file names of the images themselves. You have been warned.
