While the DLC may still be a month away, a newly leaked video has finally given fans a look at one of the boss fights from Dark Souls 3 The Ringed City DLC.
The boss fight, which actually has players fighting against two bosses, takes place in an underground cavern where players drop down from a cliff in The Dreg Heap region of the DLC.
Initially, the players face off against the Crimson Bat, a giant inferno demon who seems to prefer claw and smash attacks instead of burning the player. Occasionally, the Crimson Bat also breathes out noxious fumes which can poison the player and cause toxicity.
As the Dark Souls 3 The Ringed City DLC fight progresses, the Crimson Bat is joined by another ally, Demon from Below, which actually looks even more menacing with its bright red color.
Thankfully, the moveset of both the bosses seem similar for the most part. While players fight Crimson Bat, the Demon from Below stays at a distance and keeps shooting out poison gas, which travels in a line although it seems easy to avoid since there are particle effects that indicate the area where the gas will be.
Once the Crimson Bat is dead, that is when things start to heat up as Demon from Below enrages and instead of poison, it starts shooting around massive fire balls which can be a pain to avoid.
The leaked Dark Souls 3 Ringed City DLC boss fight shows the players dying at the hands of Demon from Below once it enrages so it is unclear at this moment exactly what tactic would be useful against it and what loot does it drop.
The video was originally taken down by publisher Bandai Namco as they didn’t want eager players to be spoiled just yet but thankfully, another Youtuber rose to the occasion and reuploaded it here.
Dark Souls 3 The Ringed City DLC is the final DLC for the game and is scheduled to launch on 28th March for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
