Dark Souls 2 Trailer Prepares Players For Death
For many, the frequency of video game death is a make-or-break notion; die once, fair enough. Die twice, frustration sets in. Die a third time, and controllers are hurled as the game’s designers and difficulty curve are abundantly cursed. But that is most certainly not the case with fans of Dark Souls, a game that has player death placed as one of its fundamental design pillars.
As proof that From Software is going to be keeping that tenet in place with Dark Souls 2, the latest trailer for the game warns players of the many, many deaths that await them, while soothing them with the promise that the game isn’t about death, merely determination. If you ask us, the title ‘Hollow Lullaby’ is particularly fitting.
