12 Minutes of Dark Souls II Gameplay!

Dark Souls II Gameplay Demo from IGN.

IGN scores a scoop with this first ever showing of actual Dark Souls II gameplay. That’s 12 minutes of action from this upcoming RPG sequel. On the one hand, it’s pretty obvious that the sequel is looking a lot better than the first game- the environments are really detailed with nice, atmospheric lighting and effects, and the huge size of some enemies retains that trademark Dark Souls scale. I’m finding the walking animation of the player character kinda stiff though- maybe because the game is still early? Also, the view of the game- the behind-the-character view, seems very impractical in many parts of the demo in terms of your character actually blocking your view (I don’t recall it being like that in the first game). But I’m sure this won’t be an issue in the final game.

The way I am, I’ll probably try out DS2 when it comes, even if I never finished the first Dark Souls. I’ll surely keep an eye on this one though.
