If you're looking forward to Dark Souls II , you'll want to know about this.
In a new Digital Spy interview with From Software director Yui Tanimura, we learn that freedom will be more pronounced in the upcoming sequel. Are you excited?
He says they're putting a premium on more exploration this time around, so "things don't have to necessarily be done in a certain order." While you could certainly explore quite a bit in Dark Souls , it appears that Tanimura is promising an even larger, more open world, which will encourage more freedom and decision-making. Essentially, he's saying we can do whatever we want a little more often, and that's not a bad thing…is it?
Tanimura also added an interesting tidbit:
"We're hoping that if the player tries hard enough, or are willing enough, they could even start halfway through the game, depending on how willing or how brave they are. You won't have to follow a certain line, it will be unique for all players, I think."
Start halfway through the game? How would that work? Well, there's no doubt that avid followers of Demon's Souls and its spiritual successor are looking forward to Dark Souls II . Now all we need is a solidified release date. When's that coming, guys?
