Even though Dark Souls 3’s first DLC has already been announced and will likely be coming sometime this year, we’ll have to have a much longer wait for the second Dark Souls 3 DLC. Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of Dark Souls 3, has said as much.
Dark Souls 3 has only been out for a few weeks but has gotten acclaim across the board, and the new DLC was announced only a few days after the game came out. All the same, we don’t have any titles for the first DLC or the second one, or even know what they’re about.
Miyazaki has already said that Dark Souls 3 will be the final entry in the Dark Souls 3 series, and that From Software will not be returning to its first truly well-known game, Demon’s Souls, either.
The previous Dark Souls games have all involved traveling back in time to other kingdoms that have suffered the same fate as the main setting. Dark Souls went back to the land of Oolacile for its own DLC Artorias the Abysswalker, while Dark Souls 2 took you to the lands of the Iron, Sunken, and Ivory Kings.
Whatever comes from it, however, we’ll most likely be getting a well-polished pair of DLC areas to go through and die constantly, though with luck they won’t have the sort of gimmicks that brought down Dark Souls 2 somewhat.
The DLC packs of the other two games also expanded on a large amount of lore, such as the knight Artorias the Abysswalker going mad and the fall of Oolacile, and the sisters of Nashandra (the villain of Dark Souls 2) coming to three other kingdoms to corrupt and usurp them for power.
We don’t really know what the Dark Souls 3 DLC will involve, but what we do know is that they’ll be good.
