Masochists rejoice! Dark Souls is back. The long-awaited sequel to the legendary action-RPG title is twice as big as the original, and twice as nasty. Dark Souls II promises more intense gameplay, deadlier enemies, an expanded suite of characters, new weapons and armor, and more of the punishingly difficult, harder-than-hardcore action of the original Dark Souls. You'll encounter a wide range of threats that prey on human senses and phobias: auditory hallucinations, vertigo, acrophobia, and other unpleasantness that will provide the basis of unforgettable boss fights and deaths. So many, many deaths. The multiplayer aspect of Dark Souls has been overhauled, so expect improved online interactions and better cooperative and competitive play.
