Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel & The Ringed City

Ringed City

Game

Dark Souls III expansions are a must play for any souls player, just as every single game and dlc in this series.

It seems to finally put a period to the series’ lore by pitting you against the last boss at the very end of the world. And the timing couldn’t be better as, after playing Bloodborne, I couldn’t help but feel that Dark Souls formula was starting to get a bit stale and repetitive.

It was one hell of a journey and most likely my favorite series of all time, but now I’m rather looking forward to what new concept FROM Software will develop instead.

You can grab the game on steam or amazon.

Positive:
Negative:
Stunning visuals
Some NPCs are easy to miss
Good music
By bloating the lore too much, the story cheapens the events of the original game
Fantastic dark and gloomy atmosphere
Not many new useful armor sets or weapons, at least from what I found
Interesting surreal story
The formula is finally starting to feel a bit stale after all these sequels and dlcs
Interesting lore
Thought-provoking, subtle storytelling
Finally delivers what feels like a conclusive end
Item placement and drops make sense lore-wise
Fantastic sense of adventure
Fantastic dungeon design
Fantastic boss fights
Fantastic battle mechanics
Challenging and extremely rewarding
