Fancy watching some of Dark Souls II’s new character classes in action? You’re in luck, ‘cos we’ve got a bunch of them below.

There’s four in total, detailing the Dual Swordsman, Sorcerer, Warrior and Temple Knight classes. In addition to this you’ll also get a peep at some of the environments and enemies in the upcoming brutal-’em-up. Looks like they’ve nailed the tone of the series. Let’s just hope Dark Souls II can live up to its predecessor in other respects.

For more informed analysis of the game by someone that has actually played it, check out Rich’s E3 2013 preview here.

You can watch the vids below, courtesy of Famitsu. The game is out in March 2014.

This looks amazing, I just have to hope I don't accidentally let it slip under my radar, since most of my time will be spent on Next gen, at the time this releases.

The dual swordsman looks the best, but I doubt I've got the skill to take on too many enemies without a sheild! Can't wait for this game.

Looks exactly like Dark Souls... Which is high praise, but I'm curious what new things they'll add.

I cannot wait for this ^-^ loved the first, an actual game that seriously challenge's you, unlike most modern games :3
Most other games compared to the first one are such cake walks.

Lol at 10 getting thumbs down

If they are gonna have a better coop then its ok for them to fuck people over :)

Someone should Email them and tell them to make a a speedrun game mode where you die in 1 hit and can´t save, then hopefully they listen and put a 1gs achievement for beating it

How many here would love that?

#11 i don't think anyone would like that . Difficult is one thing but that is stupidly frustrating , not challenging .

I don't get the dark souls difficulty hype, I love the game but loads of games are harder on high difficulty. Anyway, can't wait for DS2, hopefully we see some crazy monsters

@11 and make sure the other 4 gs comes from selecting new game.

Anyway, Dark Souls had extremely horrible gameplay. There's nothing really positive to say about it. I know all you morons hype on it being difficult, but the difficulty did not come from making fast-paced tactical choices, but rather in avoiding hits that take too much of your health off so that you have to perform the same basic maneuver over and over again until a boss dies. That, and making sure the menus were as convoluted and unhelpful as possible so that you could go through the entire game without knowing how to even cast a spell.

If you want a difficult game, look to Ninja Gaiden and other action games in that vein.

@15 Avoiding hits from large weapons wielded by large beings. If anything that is being realistic. Don't get hit, don't die. Pretty simple, but for me it was also the feeling of the game. I never felt safe on my first run through and if I had humanity...fuck that.
Great game I just hope it gets ported to The One at some point cause Im pretty sure Im going to be over playing my 360 by release.

Looks great. I really would like the Dragon Bone Smasher to return from Demon's Souls, that would be awesome :)

@ Lee Bradley

The link in your report seems to link to Dan's preview of SRIV. Well it does for me anyway.

Dark souls was my favourite 360 game. This just looks like more of the same with better framerate and lighting. THAT'S A GOOD THING.

This all looks great, but the first and second things I always tell people are "Get a shield." Two daggers or longswords? Kinda nifty. Two ultra greatswords? Now we're speaking my language. Imagine doing that double attack with a pair of Greatswords of Artorias.
