Death, rebirth, and monsters. The cycle renews once again in From Software’s Dark Souls III, and fans were able to try out the game in recent trade shows. However, the latest update from the game reveals that it’s coming to North America next year on April 12.
The date gives Japanese players more than a two-week head start, as they get the game on March 26. At the moment, console players have two choices when purchasing the game: the Day One Edition or the Collector’s Edition. You can grab the Day One Edition, which includes the game, the Day One packaging, soundtrack and a Starter Guide from Prima Games, all for $59.99. If you’re willing to spend $129.99, the Collector’s Edition includes everything in the Day One Edition, plus extra goodies such as a collector’s box, art book, a map of the game made from cloth and a 10-inch Red Knight statue.
For those who will play the game on PC, it seems that you only get a copy of the game, as the Day One and Collector’s editions are unavailable on Windows. We reached out Namco Bandai for comment on the issue.
In addition to the announcement date, From Software also released some new gameplay footage, featuring the usual horde of enemies, plus a surprise encounter with a new boss. The video came out today as part of the development team’s participation in this week’s PlayStation Experience.
