The lights are on
The spiritual successor to the legendarily challenging Demon's Souls is nearly upon us. This trailer offers masochistic gamers a glimpse at the pain that is soon to be inflicted.
Giant teeth monsters, gigantic armored nights, and hordes of animated skeletons await on the bravest warriors. Check out the trailer below, fresh out of Gamescom 2011.
Dark Souls arrives on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 October 4. Will you be suiting up for battle?

Piece of cake
Full disclosure: I'm a narcissist not a masochist
Looks like a nice game.
Gee, I would never of guessed that the successor to demon souls would be tough.
Toothy is kinda cool.
I'm going to have to work hard to beat this game before Skyrim comes out.
I'm interested to see how this game's difficulty compares to Ninja Gaiden 3. NG 2 was harder than Demon's Souls, but NG 3 seems to be going in a slightly softer direction, so this may be even harder. Which is terrifying.
Shh, you had me at "RRRRRRRRAAGH!"
once you mastered combat in demons souls it wasn't too hard (granted it was still tough, I hated stonefang tunnel 2)and I did play as a mage so that might have lowered the difficulty
I won't be able to get this till at least November. Arkham City and all that.
Thank you From Software may I have another?
I am really excited about this game. I loved Demons Souls where death was earned not cheaply given. And to all those talking about frustrating difficulty in these games I have to say there is a difference in being difficult and being frustrating. Demon Souls was difficult sure but if you learned anything from a death then progress could be made.
As an example of frustrating I point to that thing called Knights Contract. It wasn't hard at all but thanks to the mechanics and how they were implemented I wanted to go find the makers and punch them and have their developer status revoked forever.
