The Ringed City, the second and final expansion for Dark Souls 3, releases tomorrow, March 28, and IGN has uploaded the first 13 minutes of gameplay. You can check out the DLC’s launch trailer over here.
“Journey to the world’s end to search for the Ringed City and encounter new lands, new bosses, new enemies with new armor, magic and items,” the DLC’s description says. “Experience the epic final chapter of a dark world that could only be created by the mind of Hidetaka Miyazaki. A New World. One Last Journey.”
To prep for The Ringed City, FromSoftware has released Dark Souls 3 update 1.12. Here’s the patch notes:
- Added system compatibility to the DLC, The Ringed City.
- Fixed issue where an item could be used simultaneously with the Dragon Head Stone if the player performed a quick turn while changing the item display.
- Fixed issue where a currently equipped item would be replaced with an item taken out from the character’s inventory box if the items had the same name.
Update 1.11 launched last week and included PlayStation 4 Pro support, two new maps, and more.
