Dark Souls World Exponentially Bigger Than Demon's Souls
Developer From Software is working on making Dark Souls a much bigger game than Demon's Souls. So far, it looks like it's going in the right direction. Following a presentation at Gamescom, producer Kei Horono talked with NowGamer about the open world environment in Dark Souls.
"If you can see an area in the distance, then you can go there," said Horono. "This world is about three to four times as big as the world in Demon's Souls. There's also double the amount of accessories and weapons in the game."
The producer made sure to clarify that not everything will be open right from the get-go. Some environments can only be explored after you reach certain points in the game, and there is also DLC planned for Dark Souls down the road. "You can't go everywhere from the beginning," explained Horono. "You'll know if you're going the wrong way because you will die."
Dark Souls is shaping up to be a potentially awesome sequel to the brutally challenging Demon's Souls. The game will land on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 4. If you're a fan of Demon's Souls or just enjoy tough action RPGs, keep this one on your radar.
