PRAISE THE SUN! The first footage of Dark Souls 2 has arrived courtesy of IGN this week anc it does not disappoint. The brand new footage showed a lot of familiar gameplay from the original Dark Souls, but with new features that will keep players entertained.

The first thing you will notice is that the game has a much higher quality of graphics and detail compared to both Souls games. This can range from new physics for cloth in the wind as well as game that looks less stiff then ever before. Another new addition is the enhanced enemy AI that reacts in ways it never has before. Enemies will no longer just rush you and react in a more real way in terms of battle strategies.

This will make battles much more difficult and finding a cheap way to fin a battle will no longer be a viable option. The new world of Dark Souls 2 is also more destructible and deadly than ever before. An overarching theme for this sequel will now be on dragons as you can see in the new demo. The overall cinematic quality of Dark Souls 2 has been raised greatly in the move that seems like a next generation game title already.

While nothing to drastic has seems to have changed in Dark Souls 2, it really looks like this will be a sequel made for the fans that made the series what it is today. Still From Software has said the overall systems of the game will be easier to understand in Dark Souls 2.

Dark Souls 2 is currently planned to release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC sometime in the future.Did this first showing of Dark Souls 2 impress you and what do you hope to see in the sequel? Let us know what you think in the comments below. Also don't forget...PRAISE THE SUN!
