Dark Souls 3 launches April 2016 in North America & Europe

Bandai Namco announced Dark Souls III is set to launch on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America and Europe next April, following the release in Japan on March 24.

The third entry in the famed Dark Souls series aims to mix up the formula for players with additions such as Skills, which adds an attack modifier to a weapon, and even more customizability to allow you to play how you want to.

Dark Souls III is not developed by the Bloodborne team but will share the same director as that game: FROM Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki. To learn more, watch gameplay footage from Gamescom 2015 or our impressions at E3 2015.
