Dark Souls 3 coming April 2016

Bandai Namco confirms Dark Souls 3 will arrive on April 12, 2016.

We were expecting Dark Souls 3 to arrive some time in April, but now we’ve got an official release date for the title.

Publisher Bandai Namco has confirmed that the game will arrive on PS4, PC and Xbox One on April 12.

However, if you’re lucky enough to live in Japan, the third Dark Souls is arriving there a few week earlier – on March 24.

You can watch the latest gameplay trailer below, which was released to celebrate the concrete release date.

Bandai Namco has said that there will be various retailer exclusive collector’s editions for the game, although UK pricing has yet to be announced.

There are two for the UK it seems: The Collector Edition and the Prestige Edition.

The latter will be exclusively available from Amazon UK and contains a collector’s box, metal case, three iron-on patches, a 40cm Lord of Cinder Resin figurine, the game, the soundtrack, a cloth game map, a 25cm Red Knight figurine, and an A4 hard artbook.

Then you’ve got the Collector Edition, which will be available at “selected retailers”. It contains a metal case, three iron-on patches, collector’s box, 25cm Red Knight figurine, A4 hardcover artbook, cloth game map, soundtrack and the game. Basically, everything the Prestige Edition has apart form the 40cm Lord of Cinder Resin figure.
