Dark Souls 3 Cinematic Welcomes You to Lothric

Maybe it’s just me, but Dark Souls 3 has sort of crept up on me. Maybe there’s just not as much hype around it as previous games, or maybe I just haven’t been paying as much attention as I’d have suspected. Still, I’m looking forward to dying some more .


I can’t actually tell much of what Dark Souls 3 is about by the cinematic alone, but honestly I can’t tell you what either of the games are about either despite having played them both extensively. That’s just the Dark Souls way; they’re more about setting a stage as well as a tone than feed you a story, and the cinematic does exactly those two things.

The trailer description at least gives you something, it basically seems to be introducing you to the many horrors you’ll face in Dark Souls 3 – welcome to Lothric. Enjoy your stay.

In venturing North, the Pilgrims discover the truth of the Old Words… Discover in exclusivity the opening cinematic of Dark Souls 3! Yhorm the Giant, Aldrich Saint of the Deep, Farron’s Undead Legion and more await you in Lothric. Are you ready to fight them all?

As someone who didn’t get the chance to play Bloodborne, it’ll be nice to play a really pretty Dark Souls game, but I’m slightly concerned of the port. Dark Souls 2 was ported well, but it also had a fairly low ceiling. It was probably hard to mess up performance in a game like that. But this is the first Dark Souls game for the new (now three year old) consoles, so I’m a little weary of the PC port, but who knows.

We’ll see in a couple months time, won’t we.
