Dark Souls II is an upcoming action role-playing open world video game, developed for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by From Software. From Software will also publish the game in Japan, while Namco Bandai Games will do it in other regions.
As the sequel to Dark Souls, Hidetaka Miyazaki, who served as director on Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls, will not return as director for Dark Souls II. Instead he will act as a supervisor and the game will be directed by Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura. Miyazaki stated there will be no direct connection between Dark Souls and Dark Souls II. The game will use dedicated multiplayer servers.
The story will revolve around a cursed character trying to find a cure for their agony, and will be emotional and involved in the fashion of Demon’s Souls’s story. The game’s director has mentioned that the sequel is indirectly linked to its predecessor, but with no specifications as to how. The director also stated that the concept of time will factor into the story.
