    And they're producing this as well. So calm yourself and don't get dragged into the hype current, lest you drown in the riptide of fans or smashed against the rocks of disappointment.

    What's with the fear with Namco involvement? Do they have a history of dumbing down games? Sure we have an industry where alot of games do get dumbed down but remember that Namco were the ones that put out all the trailers on about dying all the time. Given their history with the Soul series I think it's safe to say the game is in good hands.

    That's the traler character, not Gwyn. Notice the difference in sword size compared to the GLGS. Way too small. Don't let the hype cloud your senses, bro!

    What makes you think Gwyn is not the character of the Trailer? Gwyn is big and maybe the sword looks "standard" in his hands. Don't let hype cloud your senses, bro!

    New info about Dark Souls 2:

    Dark Souls II will continue a legacy of goading its passionate fan
    base with unrelenting challenge and suffering that are considered a
    hallmark of the series; while presenting new devilishly devised
    obstacles for players to overcome. Dark Souls II will be available for
    the PS3, X360 and PCs.



    Built upon the foundation established by Souls series creator and
    Dark Souls II Supervisor, Hidetaka Miyazaki with development helmed by
    FromSoftware Director Tomohiro Shibuya, Dark Souls II will feature a new
    hero, a new storyline, and an unfamiliar world for players to survive
    in while delivering its signature brand of unrelenting punishment that
    players hunger for. Epic battles with gruesome enemies and blood-thirsty
    bosses await adventurers as they traverse through a devastated world
    filled with death and despair; only those who are strong willed or
    cunning can survive this journey to achieve great glory. Players seeking
    to share their experience will discover a revamped server-based
    multiplayer mode that will put a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the
    concept of playing with others.



    Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at NAMCO BANDAI Games America said:



    “Dark Souls II retains the core essence of Dark Souls while evolving
    to present new twists and challenges that are sure to please longtime
    fans and attract new comers to the series. FromSoftware is going to take
    a very dark path with Dark Souls II; players will need to look deep
    within themselves to see if they have the intestinal fortitude to embark
    on this journey.”



    Tomohiro Shibuya, FromSoftware Director on Dark Souls II added:



    “This new chapter in the Dark Souls saga presents opportunities for
    us to drive innovation in gameplay design, develop an entirely new
    story, and expand the scope of the world in which the player interacts
    with the game. We have taken these necessary steps with Dark Souls II in
    order to evolve the overall experience of the Dark Souls series. The
    entire development team is striving to make Dark Souls II an experience
    that is fresh while not forsaking its roots in presenting players with
    challenging gameplay. Our goal is to surprise and delight our fans with
    new experiences and plot twists while enticing new players to join our
    dark journey.”



    More details surrounding Dark Souls II will become available in the months leading to its release.”


    So, no release date yet.

    I don't think it is Gwyn, i'm not sure why you do. No offense, read the above article. I think this game won't have as much to do with DkS established characters as we think.

    I don't quite get what you're getting at. The timeline isnt that complex and both endings of DkS are valid.

    W-wow..that was incredible. As some people are saying, however, let's not get too crazy with stuff. They might even change the title and it might be a totally different universe, so let's keep our heads on straight. Although, from what little information we were given, this could very well be a pre/sequel. Those masks were definently the same mask on that statue that opens the door to Prissy in the Painted World.

    Dough I meant the paradox of the people in the game in relation to time. We have Quelana who has lived since the Bed of chaos was made, Logan who is one hundred years old and the DLC which took place before our characters timeline. Unless immortality is possible by being undead the fact that we meet these people who should be dead messes up the flow of time in Lordran at least. In multiplayer I see it as this: we each have a seprate timeline in the game and the orbs and soapstones allow us to enter another's time. Simply put: My Seath may be dead but yours is not.

    However your right, both endings are valid but if it's a sequal: How far apart is the ending we chose and the start of Dark Souls 2. Hopes this help because I'm starting to get tired and thinking is getting harder.

    The dragon in the trailer looks a LOT like Kalameet, he has three eyes, and has the same head type.
    Could it be set around the same time gough was a dragon slayer, because we see that very same dragon flying near Anor Londo!!

    Ok after watching it a few times, the woman has brown hair so I don't think she's velka. FROM doesn't seeem to place the PC in trailers, but more the mentor figure. The figure's armour resembles Gwyn's, but hmmm, I don't know about that. Regardless I think he'll play the same role as Oscar does in DkS.
    (This is more a "See I was right!" post than a post to argue about silly)

    True it will never totally go away but no more getting backstabbed from across the screen would be a great improvement IMO
