Dark Souls III is one of the most popular games that has released this year and is finally receiving its first DLC expansion. Acting as one of two different additions, this new batch of content is dubbed “Ashes of Ariandel.” Even though it is still over a month away, we have some details on what players should expect when they make the trek back into this dark worlariandelHere’s everything you need to know about Dark Souls III DLC, Ashes of Ariandel:

A new location called Ariandel

Dark Souls III is known for having a gorgeously macabre world. The new location called Ariandel certainly reflects this mentality. Unlike the rest of the game’s setting, Ariandel is a frozen wasteland that is constantly battered by powerful snowstorms and dense fogs. This can make fighting challenging as enemies can seemingly appear out of know where and lends this new area a cinematic quality.⁠⁠⁠⁠

New enemies and bosses

One of the best aspects about getting new DLC for Dark Souls III is that our enemy variety will be increased. This will offer new challenges to experienced players. We got a glimpse at what monsters could be just around the corner. They all seems terrifying in their own right. Some of the basic monsters we will encounter come in the form of giant wolves, humanoid bug monsters, and large Nordic inspired warriors. Prepare to die people.

New weapons and magic to be added

It has been confirmed  that Ashes of Ariandel will include new weapons and armor. One of the new weapons we get a glimpse at is a golden sword. The sword resembles a chain pattern going up to the tip of the blade. The sword itself is incredibly ornate and could very well be a great sword judging by the size alone. It’s also infused with dark magic, which could either be a property of the weapon or the player enchanting it.
There will also be new magic added into the game. This has been showcased in both the trailers and press photos released.
Also, we are excited about the new PvP systems. New arenas and a host of new features are being added and we are definitely excited. It was a blast engaging in PvP in both the earlier Souls game. This feature getting some love is definitely recommend.
