Dark Souls III Launch Trailer Shows Off Grotesque Creatures
From giant crab-like creatures to huge masked monsters, Dark Souls III’s launch trailer most certainly goes out of its way to bring some of its nastiest creatures to the light, with terrifyingly successful results. You can check it out below.
“In the Woods Somewhere” by Hozier is a wonderfully fitting track for the dark and disturbing launch trailer. Somewhere in the woods is a creature that is very likely to kill and then kill you again when you go to get your souls. The Souls games have never been criticized for poor creature design, and Dark Souls III seems to carry the torch of haunting enemies that lurk around every corner just waiting for the chance to kill you. The trailer does a fantastic job of setting the mood for the game: dark, depressing, and hopeless. With hordes of grotesque creatures and bosses, Dark Souls III is going to make sure fans know that this game will be a difficult journey, but one that is most certainly worth it in the end.
Dark Souls III is out now on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
