I wanted to make a general thread where people will post speculations and latest developments of the game.
From what we have seen in the trailer so far, this game may be set in the exact same universe as the first Dark Souls but in a different time period. Proven by the fact that by the time the Chosen Undead starts his or her adventures, dragons are extinct (Sans the Everlasting Dragon in Ash Lake) and the trailer clearly shows off a couple of dragons. Also we get to see a vista of what appears to be the Anor Londo Castle on top of mountains.
What I hope for in this is basically the player being alive during the rule of Gywn and possibly serving under him or his Four Knights (Artorias, Ornstien, Cirian and Gough), the creation of the demons and the Bed of Chaos, and possibly Seath not being batshit insane.
