A first look at the Dark Souls II beta
Finally, the first ever beta footage for the hugely anticipated Dark Souls II has released. In the below footage, we are given inside looks at the beta version for a multitude of the game’s elements.
We dive right in with a team of two making their way through the game’s environment and into a good old-fashioned dungeon crawl. Though this narration isn’t in English, we get a good look at the game’s menu and skill allocation systems. Additionally, through our initial dungeon crawl, we are given a good look at the use of effective team tactics in combat situations.
Moving forward, we are given a look at the more domestic aspects of the game and witness some merchants, their abodes, and the process of in-game transactions for gathering potions, equipment, and other enhancements.
Dark Souls II is slated to release on March 11th 2014 and will release on Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
