There's a new Dark Souls 2 trailer, a mix of CGI and gameplay footage, and it glances across the whole adventure showing some of the terrifying bosses you'll weep trying to defeat.
There's a huge, winged, fiery demon that bursts from a pool of lava; there's a beast made of tormented, writhing bodies; there are spiders; and there is some kind of Deathly reaper. Few games show the kind of imagination the Souls series has in its monster design, and Dark Souls 2 appears thankfully no different.
"Your wings will burn in anguish time after time," the narrator closes, "for that is your fate: the fate of the Cursed."
Dark Souls 2 will kill you starting 14th March on PS3 and Xbox 360, and PC "shortly after".
