Adds a new way to play online.
The first expansion for FromSoftware's 'Dark Souls III' is set to release October 25th, and Bandai Namco has released gameplay footage of its multiplayer component. Called 'Ashes of Ariandel,' the standalone expansion will cost $14.99 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Those who are interested in buying all of the downloadable content can save a few dollars by purchasing the 'Dark Souls III' season pass for $24.99. The season pass will also contain the action role-playing game's second expansion that is set to release in "early 2017."
The multiplayer mode is called 'Undead Matches,' and has players testing their skills against other humans. Players can choose to participate in either one-on-one duels, or battle in larger matches that go up to six matches. These bigger battles will be available to play in both team-based modes and in free-for-alls where there is no allegiance.
Check out the first multiplayer gameplay footage for 'Ashes of Ariandel' below:
