From Software and Bandai Namco have teamed up for a second Dark Souls desktop game.
The impact of Dark Souls has already outgrown the digital world. We’ve seen this with the first board game, which was funded on Kickstarter in a matter of minutes, and now it looks like another physical game is being added to the franchise. Steamforged Games, who previously worked with From Software and Bandai Namco on the board game, would be returning with a traditional tabletop RPG called Dark Souls: The Roleplaying Game.
Although their trailer ties in nicely with the Dark Souls universe (the video features a bonfire at the centre), it doesn’t reveal any details about the game mechanics. So we’ll have to wait until Steamforged Games decides to give us more information about the game, which they’ve already highlighted as containing a heavy dose of classic role-playing elements, as well as…
… compatible with the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons.
It should be noted that this is not Steamforged Games’ first foray into board games, as they have already completed several projects in addition to the aforementioned Dark Souls. In this regard, their company is also known for its proposals around the Resident Evil, Monster Hunter World and Horizon Zero Dawn universes, so their experience in the field will help their new journey in the realm of Lordran.
There is no release date for the new role-playing game yet, but you can keep up to date with the latest news on the game’s website.
