You’ve already gotten a
look at the gameplay of Namco Bandai’s upcoming Dark Souls, as well as the
game’s de facto “PREPARE TO DIE”mission statement. So for the next
round of trailers, the company’s comfortable to take things back a notch or two
to the birth of the game’s universe in a series of prologue clips, the first of
which has just launched.
Skillfully, this clip fills
you in on the game’s back story ahead of time, so come launch day (Oct 4 in
America, three days later in PAL territories) you’ll be able to skip past all
the obligatory “in days of yore” stuff and get straight to the “press this
button to kill things” bit. Make your peace while you still can.
