New Dark Souls II screens showcase character customisation, introduce Deprived class

Written by: / / 3 Comments


Namco Bandai has released a new set of screens for Dark Souls II and fans of the series will be relieved to see that many of the elements which made the original game such a classic will make a return in the sequel. These include a virtually identical level up system and the life-restoring Estus Flasks which can be upgraded for greater efficacy.

The screens also showcase some fresh elements including a new class called the Deprived who start off the game unclothed and unarmed. This class will undoubtedly be a favourite among those Dark Souls players who like to take down the most challenging bosses with the lowest level character and equipment possible.

Here are the new screens:
