Dark Souls 3 DLC Ashes of Ariandel announced for October

Adds new weapons, magic, and a PvP area.  

Dark Souls 3 is getting a DLC expansion called Ashes of Ariandel due on 25th October.

The add-on was teased by the official PlayStation Twitter account before being removed - but not before Shacknews grabbed a screencap of it. A trailer was teased, but the video was still set to private.

According to Japanese blog Hachima (translated via Siliconera), the latest issue of Famitsu noted that the expansion will contain new weapons, magic, and a PvP-exclusive map called Immortal Competition.

The magazine included a picture of a snowy area, though it's unclear if this is Immortal Competition or a new single-player level.

New weapons include a great sword with a colourless flame, while spells include a boomerang made of light and an ice storm attack.

The Dark Souls 3 Season Pass - which will include two expansions with the second due early next year - is currently available for pre-order at £19.99 / $24.99.

Eurogamer contributor Rich Stanton awarded From Software's latest the rare Eurogamer Essential badge. "Dark Souls 3 is a fabulous game, and a fitting conclusion to the greatest trilogy of modern times," he proclaimed in his Dark Souls 3 review.
