Regarding Dark Souls 3
’s improved gameplay, players will now be able to perform ‘Sacrifices’ on bodies and drag them around. Once a sacrifice ritual or ceremony is performed, you can visit another player’s game but at the risk of a bounty being placed on your head. Fortunately, the ability to create bonfires and summon NPC characters to help out while doing sacrifices should help discourage enemies from attacking you.
Boss battles have also gotten more interesting, thanks to a new a ‘heat up’ mechanic that changes boss fights based on undescribed factors. For example, a boss will change into an unanticipated form based on the factors in play.
There are speculations that the ‘heat up’ mechanic is a revamped, more robust version of the light and dark tendencies from Demon’s Souls that changed elements of the game based on your actions.
Finally, there is another new mechanic called ‘Sword Fighting Arts’, which seems to have something to do with special moves that players can have their characters learn to further distinguish them.
From Software has yet to confirm any of these changes and additions, so stayed tuned to GameTribute for future Dark Souls 3
