None of this stuff is going to make the game any easier though.
The Collector’s Edition for Dark Souls 2 can now be pre-ordered from Amazon. There’s quite a lot included in the box, with the standout item being a 12 inch high figurine of the character on the cover. Other trinkets include a soundtrack CD, an art book, a map of the game world made out of cloth, and a steel case for the game. Unfortunately, you’ll have to bring your own box of tissues to wipe your tears with.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, Dark Souls 2 is going to make things even harder than its sadistic predecessor. Remember those suicide runs in undead form? Well, you can’t do that anymore, since the more you die, the more health you keep losing. But there’s more. At the Tokyo Game Show, the developers revealed that players can now be invaded by others even when they are in the undead state. No longer can you wander around the game world as a carefree ghost immune to being hassled by others online.
Prepare to die, indeed.
Dark Souls 2 will be out for the PS3 and the Xbox 360 in March next year.
