I'm surprised by the focus on plotline in a trailer for a Souls game. They're usually gameplay-centric (much like the products they represent), but this seems like pure fanservice for those of us invested in the lore. The trailer show both a mix of vanilla Dark Souls and the new Artorias of the Abyss content. I assume it is the PC version being shown, because the console crowd still don't have an exact release date to salivate over for the new DLC, whereas the Prepare to Die edition is right around the corner.
Prepare to Die Edition Gamescom Trailer-Back to Oolacile
On the one hand, totally excited for all the things this is going to reveal about the world and backstory of Dark Souls. On the other, goddamnit, I thought I was done being afraid of this game already, and now there's going to be all kinds of new shit that wants me dead.
Also, I just realized that the guy at the very end is probably Hawkeye Gough from his armor. He seems... way more imposing than I expected, for an archer.
