You can check out the clip, along with a slideshow containing screens from the sequel, to the left side of this article.

“Dark Souls 2” does feature a few important gameplay changes when compared to “Dark Souls” and “Demon’s Souls.” The enemies are now smarter and will react accordingly to the player’s maneuvers. As a result, exploitive tricks from previous installments won’t work. The unique multiplayer features were also revamped to provide a more connected experience.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of “Dark Souls 2” are now available in North America. The same title will be arriving for the PC on April 25. Despite the recent launches of the PS4 and Xbox One, the open-world action role-playing game is currently not set to come out for the two next-generation consoles.

“Dark Souls 2” was developed by From Software, the same studio that worked on the aforementioned “Dark Souls” and “Demon’s Souls.”
