Watch Part 1 of Dark Souls 2’s prologue here

Can't possibly wait until Dark Souls 2 to release on March 11? Maybe this will help.

Namco Bandai has released the prologue for Dark Souls 2, but here's the catch: it's just part one. I'm assuming they'll release a part two soon, probably before the game's launch, but for now this will have to do.

As expected, there's talk of feeding on souls, going hallow, and a brief introduction to the kingdom of Drangliec. Ah yes, your journey to get rid of the Curse will begin soon.

Dark Souls 2 is due out for Xbox 360 and PS3 on March 11 (North America) and March 14 (Europe). The PC version will release about a month later on April 25. Check back for our review early next week.
