Dark Souls creator Hideki Miyazaki has confirmed that there are going to 200 weapons in Dark Souls 3. Miyazaki said that they have tried to make sure each weapon feels unique.
In Dark Souls 3, players will form a closer relationship with the weapons they use, similar to Bloodborne. Stats are important but they won’t be everything.
According to Miyazaki, they were able to raise the level of complexity of Dark Souls 3 by utilizing the power of the next-gen consoles. Players will notice Dark Souls 3 being more similar to Bloodborne, rather than previous Dark Souls games.
Dark Souls 3 takes “a lot of influence” from Bloodborne, especially, the combat system of Dark Souls 3 takes notes from last year’s PS4 game.
Dark Souls 3 is believed to be end of Dark Souls series but that may not be the case. According to Miyazaki, one good story leads to another. Even though Dark Souls 3 pretty much wraps it up, there can still be another Souls game.
However, it may take a while before that happens.
Chances are that we will see Bloodborne 2 from From Software after Dark Souls 3. The first game was a PS4 exclusive and same is expected to be the case with the sequel. Sony will published it while development duties will be handled by From Software.
On a related note, rumors were flying around about Dark Souls 3 being locked at 30FPS on PC. But that is not the case, as confirmed by From Software. The bad news is that the Frame Rate will still be locked but at 60. PC gamers won’t be happy with such an arrangement.
Dark Souls 3 is coming out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this month in Japan. The rest of the world will get to play it on April 12.
