Dark Souls II Bosses’ Details Revealed By ESRB


From Software’s upcoming action role-playing game, Dark Souls II, has been rated by the ESRB in preparation for its upcoming release. The rating summary given by the board has revealed some new details regarding the game’s bosses.

The Dark Souls II summary does contain spoilers, so read on carefully and at your own accord.

This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of an undead fighter in the realm of Drangleic. Players traverse dungeon-like settings and battle a variety of fantastical enemies (e.g., ghouls, zombies, skeletons, giant rats) to gain souls. Players use knives, swords, and arrows to defeat enemies. Combat is highlighted by cries of pain and small splashes of blood. Some locations depict instances of blood and gore: a giant snake boss holding its severed head; a giant boss creature composed of hundreds of corpses; dead ogres near a pool of blood; a torture device with streaks of blood. During the course of the game, a boss creature appears partially topless (e.g. hair barely covering breasts). The words ‘bastard’ and “pr*ck” can be heard in the dialogue.

Dark Souls II will release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 14th. A PC version will be released after the console versions, but does not have a release date just yet.
