Dark Souls II - Random News Roundup

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-27 04:24:04

I managed to round-up a few articles for Dark Souls II. Some of them might be of interest, and others might not. So here we go.

Up first IncGamers has news the Dark Souls 2 Collectors Edition is sold out.

Warning to anyone still wanting to pick up the Dark Souls 2 Collectors Edition: Namco Bandai have informed us that it’s pretty much out of stock, so if you still want to get a pre-order in, you’ll have to hunt around and have a lot of luck. It might still be possible to get your hands on it without resorting to eBay, but don’t get your hopes up – and I’m not sure how long the Black Armour edition will remain in stock, either.

Next you can now pre-order the Dark Souls II Strategy Guide on Amazon.

Dark Souls is back and it's darker and more difficult than ever. This time death is certain. Every minute. The Dark Souls II Collector's Edition Guide is here to light a path through the darkness and to help free players from their wicked curse.

Also Lightning Gaming News has screenshots of the fan designed shields.

Do you remember the contest initiated by From Software that allowed fans to design their own shield for Dark Souls II? Take a look at the screenshots below to see how they look in-game. The first one shown below is called “Wicked Eye Greatshield”; it seems to be a tower shield, which is covered with numerous mysterious hand prints. The second shield is called “Great Shield of Raven Goddess” and displays an embossed raven/crow-like creature .

And for last Pixel Judge has more information from the Japanese site.

Thanks to this translated image from the Dark Souls 2 site, fans can have a bit more insight to the workings of the upcoming sequel. Not a great load of new info, but plenty of character backstory and some good information about 4 of the covenants.
