Do you love frustration? If so, you're probably already familiar with the Dark Souls series. The next iteration of From Software's unforgiving hack and slash series, Dark Souls III, is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in April, 2016. Have a look at the trailer and gird your loins.
Dark Souls III promises more combat options and a revamped magic system. Hand-to-hand combat will allow players to dual-wield weapons for the first time, and players will also be able to use "attack modifiers" for each weapon type. Rather than a fixed number of spells, Dark Souls III will give players a more traditional magic "meter" that can be replenished without resting at a campfire.
If you're itching to get your hands on the game, publisher Bandai Namco has also announced a network stress test where players can check out the online portion of the game before it launches. Interested parties should fill out the stress test application form, which will become available between September 18 and October 4. The test will run for only short periods at a time, so check out the schedule.
