Project Dark, the multiplatform RPG from the Demon’s Souls team revealed at last year’s Tokyo Game Show, has received a new name: Dark Souls. The latest Famitsu magazine provided new details about the RPG, which Siliconera translated and summarized.
From Software is planning to make Dark Souls as difficult as its predecessor, and similar in style. Players still create their own characters, though there are no longer different job classes. There are tweaks to the world design, as well: the world is no longer divided into levels, instead being one large area.
Other players will be able to inhabit that world in some way, in both cooperative and competitive play. According to Siliconera, you’ll be able to feel the “gentle presence” of other players through interactions like notes left for other players at the place of death.
If you ever wished D&D had a little more “action” in its “RPG,” you may be interested in Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale, announced today. For everyone else, well, is a downloadable action-RPG with support for four-player co-op of any interest? Thought so.
Described as having “intuitive pick-up-and-play combat” with “a wide assortment of weapons, feats and powers,” Daggerdale will see players defending the Dalelands from “the evil Rezlus and his Zhentarim,” which surely means something to D&D fans.
While Daggerdale will support co-op for up to four heroes, you can also play solo.
