Video: Learn The Lore of Dark Souls Through an Animated Story Book
When people call Dark Souls a good game, it’s hard to take them seriously since the game is known for being difficult and not everyone wants to have a hard time when relaxing. Because of that reputation - along with internet trolls telling newbies to “git gud” - a lot of people do not know the game’s awesome lore, which is only known through subtle storytelling.
YouTube content creator Versiris has decided to detail the game’s lore through an animated storybook, which manages to be both gorgeous and concise. However, it also spoils the game’s events completely, so those that want to know the events of Dark Souls themselves might want to play the game first.
It’s hard to deny how effective the video is at detailing the story of the game, which can be a pain to describe to newcomers since most of the plot is in the details. The game is a very good example of show don’t tell but for those that want a proper way to learn its story, this is a great way to do so.
The developers in From Software are currently working on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which looks like quite the departure from regular Souls titles. However, a remastered version of the first Dark Souls was recently released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version coming later this year.
