Dark Souls prologue trailer

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.
