As for many things with the Dark Souls franchise, not much is explained for what players are getting themselves into. What we do know is that players have the chance to travel into the “frozen land of Ariandel” where they will “uncover a terrible secret” to learn the truth as to what happened to this frozen landscape.
The DLC is going to have brand new horrific enemies that will make you question just how well you “mastered” this game. Along with new challenges to overcome, this brings a great chance for Dark Souls to capitalize on “exciting lore to expand the overarching Dark Souls 3 storyline” stated Bandai Namco.
In addition to story expanding gameplay experiences, Ashes of Ariandel will also include “new weapons, armor sets, and magic for players to discover and experiment with.”
Bandai Namco has promised there will be two DLC expansions planned for Dark Souls 3. You can grab the Season Pass for $25 or each expansion individually for $15.
The second Dark Souls 3 Expansion is said to arrive early 2017. With no sequels or tie-ins planned for the critically acclaimed game, now might be the best time to get your fix. Having recently become a Dark Souls 3 fan, I can always appreciate how vast and cryptic their lore is, creating amazing set piece moments and a gameplay experience that really isn’t offered by anyone else right now.
