In the launch trailer we're told it as it is... 'you will die, that much is certain.'
Dark Souls II is now available for Xbox 360 and PS3 is the US, and will be released in Europe on Friday 14 March. The sequel to the ever-popular and ever-punishing Dark Souls will have you once again frustratingly battling all manner of grim creatures, whilst you try to survive your way through dungeons and your own patience threshold.
To prepare yourself for a flurry of deaths, the launch trailer has been released to get you in the mood, and it pulls no punches - check it out below.
The game will also be available for PC, but that's due for release on 25 April 2014. Check out our previous write-up on the PC specs you'll need to play the game, along with some screenshots too. Let's hope the PC version this time around has been given a little more care and attention.
