Namco introduced some interesting characters in the recently released cinematic trailer of “Dark Souls 3.”

Titled “To the Kingdom of Lothric,” the opening reveals that the players will journey to the north where they will encounter entities born of the darkest of nightmares.

The first threat featured in the trailer is Aldrich Saint of the Deep, a creature that resembles a living black tar. It is also apparent that adventurers will encounter Farron’s Undead Legion called the Abyss Watchers, undead knights by the looks of it. Then comes Yhorn the Giant whose armored skin appears to be made out of molten lava. These guys will certainly devour flesh and soul of those brave enough to dare the Lothric lands.

According to Engadget, these abominations are but the tip of the iceberg of the many monstrosities that are designed to kill players. Aside from murderous beings, the harsh environment itself is determined to give adventurers a hard time traversing the lands in the form of traps, unexpected crevices and embers. These might even give the horror creatures an unfair advantage if players are not careful enough.

All these challenges the gamers will have to overcome just to gain knowledge about the “Old Words” as what the narrator made mention. Pilgrims die on road for coveting its secrets.

The game is quite popular for being very difficult and players expect that they will die a thousand deaths and waste hundred of hours before finishing the game.

As reported in VG247, The dark fantasy game was developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for the platforms Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The fourth series from the medieval action franchise, the first one being Demon Souls, is slated to be unveiled on April 12 although it will have an earlier release in Japan scheduled on March 24.
