“Dark Souls 3” characters have just been revealed in a gameplay trailer.
“Dark Souls 3” is an upcoming action RPG and is the fourth entry in the “Souls” game series. It is set in the dark world of Lordran where it’s setting, the game’s difficulty and the battles are what make “Dark Souls” the series that it is known for.
Based on the short gameplay trailer on Gamespot, the “Dark Souls 3” characters that were featured were of four different classes. Players will be able to choose and use whichever character they wish to, howevers, they should keep in mind that each of the characters have their pros and cons and should match the player’s fighting style comfortably, as reported on IBTimes.
The Northern Warrior is the first one. This certain class can measure up to any swordsman or barbarian, but they will be relying on close ranged attacks. While fans may be worried that the speed of the character is one to be concerned of, the character is designed to be much sturdier than the other classes and makes up for its sluggish speed.
The Wandering Knight is an all-around fighter that focuses on close ranged attacks. Unlike the Northern Warrior, this character isn’t very sturdy in terms of defense, but he is very light on his feet and is fast.
The Herald of White relies more on magic and mana. Apart from using their abilities to heal and support magic called “Miracles,” they are also able to deliver some decent damage in close range attacks. The Academy Assassin also uses magic in damaging opponents, but it is the weakest when it comes to durability during battles. This is why they are the fastest of all the classes, they have to be able to avoid getting hit by enemies.
While only four character classes have been revealed so far, IGN reported that there are supposedly 10 character classes all in all.
There is no official release date set, but the game will reportedly be released next year.
