March 31, 2016 Written by Alex Co

In a press release, Bandai Namco has released a brand new Dark Souls III trailer but this one very different from what we’ve seen before.

First off, it doesn’t show a second of gameplay since it’s animated, and what’s more, it’s directed by acclaimed horror director Eli Roth (Hostel), Titled “The Witches,” this two-minute clip is an “original story” set in the Dark Souls universe. Long story short: a knight finds himself in a not-so-good place when three witches make him their personal plaything. It’s definitely a must watch, so hit play in the video above.

If you want more of what you’ve seen, check out the behind the scenes vid below where Eli Roth talks about creating the animated short, and his thoughts on some of the trailer’s key scenes. 

As if the game needed more hype, no? Dark Souls III will make its way onto the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this April 12. Check out our review hitting the site soon.
