The lights are on
Namco Bandai and From Software have released new images from Dark Souls II, showing off the online features of the game.
In these screenshots, white phantoms can be seen assisting the player against enemies and bosses. There is a maximum of two friendly online players than can be summoned at one time. Red phantoms, on the other hand, are enemies that invade the player's game.
Online players don't have to enter a session to affect it though. They can leave behind messages and a ghostly image of what they're doing can be spotted in the area.
Dark Souls 2 will be available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 11 with the PC version to release later in that month. Learn more about the game by reading our hands-on preview at the Tokyo Game Show.

The graphics look so much sharper. I want this game so muchly.
I really need to check out Dark Souls.. I didn't like Demon souls much but maybe another shot will turn things around. Good thing I'm keeping my PS3 for LOS2 so I can give this a shot.
The beta was great. When the game suddenly said that it was switching to very hard mode I was like, "I was on easy the whole time?!"
March 11, is going to be a great day for gaming. Titanfall and Dark Souls 2, definitely getting both.
I am completely infatuated with the Souls games! March 11th can not come soon enough.
The beta was epic. I so can't wait for March 11th. Still going to be a good year for last gen. I also liked the bosses, definitely unique and different from past bosses in the series, even if they were slightly easy (well easy up until they introduced hard mode XD).
Also so many new and cool looking armor and finally CAPES! WE GET CAPES! XD
PRAISE THE SUN!
My monitor isn't taking my money, it's just electrocuting me........
wishh i could of played in the beta
So beautiful... I simply cannot wait.
My only concern is with the online PvP and the balance. Got sick of low level characters invading with super high level items and dominating because of imbalance.
Looks good but too frustrating of a game....great gameplay though.
I keep throwing handfuls of money at my computer but I still do not have this game, why is it not working?!
