Just before gamescom 2013 got underway Namco Bandai Europe invited die-hard Dark Souls fans to apply for an exclusive community event to be held in close proximity to the Koelnmesse where fans would get some hands-on time with Dark Souls II. Needless to say both Oliver and I put up our hands for the event but unfortunately were not part of the fifty people chosen to attend the community gathering which was held on August 21st and 22nd.
Namco Bandai recently released a video showing some of the highlights from this event where, by the looks of it, even the most hardcore fans were brought to their knees by Dark Souls II’s tough-as-nails enemies and hazardous environments. Take a look below:
Dark Souls II will be released next March for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of the latest entry in this challenging series.
