The role-playing game industry began to steadily grow in the late 70s to the early 80s. Many RPG games followed the design and ambiance elements of Dungeons & Dragons after its development and successful release in 1974. However, the current RPG game that created an evolutionary turn for the gaming genre is Dark Souls III.
Third-Person Action RPG
Dark Souls III is the fourth game of the Souls series developed by FromSoftware. It was released by Bandai Namco Entertainment in 2016 with off-the-chart sales worldwide. The game has two modes of gameplay; single-player and multiplayer. It was made available for gameplay on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
This game of the Souls series is identical in design to the Dark Souls II game. The standard game has two downloadable expansion content packs; Ashes of Ariandel and The Ringed City respectively. Depending on the game performance of players, there are four possible endings to the game. There is also an expensive full version of this fourth installment available called Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades. This version is the standard game plus the two expansion packs altogether.
Fans of the Dark Souls III game can get their hands on three special editions. These are the Apocalypse Edition, The Collector’s Edition, and The Prestige Edition. Each edition offers something extra and deluxe for game players.
The first edition, Apocalypse, comes with a special case and the original soundtrack of the game. The Collector’s Edition, the second, comes with a Red Knight figurine, artbook, a new map, and extraordinary packaging. The Prestige Edition, the third, comes with all the second edition’s goodies plus a Lord of Cinder resin figurine, which pairs with the Red Knight figurine.
Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced Dark Souls III was the first best-selling game in the history of Bandai. In 2016, the game was nominated for a few awards. That same year, it scooped the Game of the Year and Outstanding Action/Adventure Game awards.
Dark Souls III is a monumental ending to the Souls trilogy!
