Bandai Namco and From Software have released the official Dark Souls 3 launch trailer. The game, which is already being highly praised by critics for its uniqueness, challenge and incredible detail, is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Be warned, though, the trailer is full of spoilers of the new game locations, creatures and bosses that the game holds (although it does not reveal any plot points).

Dark Souls 3 is set in an all-new world from the previous games. The awakened Lords of Cinder and discover what has happened to create this apocalyptic land. The game promises a deeper sense of role playing and more room for customization. Part of this change is the addition of skills which adds attack modifiers to each weapon type which allows them to increase and personalize their advantages in combat.

Gamers note that this trailer is much more extended than the Japanese Dark Souls 3 launch trailer, which involves basically just the opening cinematic.

Also, while general reviews have been positive for the game, fans have also reported a game-crashing bug which hopefully will be resolved in time, along with frame rate problems.

The song featured in the trailer is “In the Woods Somewhere” by Hozier.
