Dark Souls III 3 Ashes of Ariandel PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Dark Souls III's first DLC is called Ashes of Ariandel, the official PlayStation Twitter account has somehow managed to leak. The logo was grabbed by Shacknews before being removed, with additional details appearing in the latest issue of Famitsu, as translated by Japanese blog Hachima. So far we know that the add-on will contain new weapons, magic, and a PvP-exclusive map called Immortal Competition.

There's an image of a snowy location in the magazine article, but there's some confusion over whether this is a new single player location, or the aforementioned competitive arena. We do know, however, that the new weapons include a great sword with a colourless flame, as well as a spell which essentially emits a boomerang made of light. More information is expected later this week, but the DLC is locked for a 25th October launch.
