The lights are on
You know a series has permeated the gamer collective consciousness when it can shrug off gravitas in favor of good ol’ rock and roll. Dark Souls II is out today, and its launch trailer features swagger that masks the impending death of each one of the game’s players.
Set to "Locomotive Breath" by Jethro Tull, the series of encounters featured hints at the many ways you’ll die (and triumph from the experience). You can start living in From Software’s dark world on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 today. PC gamers will have to wait until April 25.
Our review of Dark Souls II is live (we liked it quite a bit), and we’re live streaming later today. You can also check out executive editor Andrew Reiner’s five hour journal chronicling his many deaths.
