After much speculation, Bandai Namco and From Software have revealed Ashes of Ariandel, the first DLC for Dark Souls III, available October 25th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Ashes of Ariandel is the first of two incoming add-ons for Dark Souls III and will welcome new weapons, armour, magic and features for the game’s competitive multiplayer mode, while the DLC’s lore further expands Dark Souls III storyline.
“Return to the world of Dark Souls III and uncover a terrible secret that lies within the frozen land of Ariandel,” says Bandai Namco in a statement. “Players are tasked to enter the land of Ariandel and defeat the evil within to uncover the mystery of what has caused the land to become defiled“.
This past April, writer Paul Policarp scored Dark Souls III 9.5/10, calling the third installment in the critically acclaimed series “a solid addition to the series“.
