Dark Souls 2's Cover Depicts the Misery You Can Expect to Face in the Full Game

Cold shoulder

Dark Souls 2’s box art is about as morbidly bleak as you’d expect from a game that thinks constantly coaxing you into unexpected death-traps is entertainment. The cover – which popped up on All Games Beta earlier today – depicts a sword-wielding warrior with his back turned. We’re going to assume that he wasn’t in the mood for posing when the image was captured, probably because he’d lost his souls several times already.

Japanese developer From Software released the first footage of the hotly anticipated sequel earlier in the week, demonstrating some new gameplay mechanics and plenty of deaths. There’s still no word on a release date just yet, which means that your happiness should be intact for the time being.

Dark Souls and Demon's Sous were pretty easy. Hope tradition will continue. Don't really like hard games.

I haven't played Dark Souls or Demon's Souls though I have watched some game-play of Dark Souls at a friend's house. I am tempted to pick this one up though. It will depend on when it comes out and what else is released at the same time.

I don't have any interest in the game, but that is one of the best covers I've ever seen.
