At the recent events from Gamescom 2015, some lucky visitors and consumers had the chance to explore and attempt to survive the newest world of Dark Souls III. I am personally a huge fan of the entire Dark Souls franchise and I am thrilled to announce that Dark Souls III from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and FromSoftware has won the award for “Best Role Playing Game” at Gamescom 2015. The Gamescom award, organized by Digital Gaming Culture Foundation, honors the best games and products premiering at the consumer expo. “It’s a huge honor for us to win this very well respected award, especially against such fierce competition. Our commitment towards DARK SOULS has never been stronger and we are proud to see our efforts being rewarded. We want to take this opportunity to thank our fans for their support throughout the years. We can’t wait to show you more!” said André Persson, Director of Communication & Events at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.

As we know, Dark Souls has a certain tradition to its style of combat that is very basic yet complex to truly master. In terms of gameplay the satisfaction of successfully parrying an opponent, properly executing a backstab and unforgettable boss fights is what makes Dark Souls so satisfying. As hollow souls we have ventured through tormented areas and rested at memorable places, that feel like they truly existed in the world such as Firelink, and recently we were introduced to a place known as Majula. I am so excited to see where BANDAI NAMCO and FromSoftware take us this time. Will we return to Lordran? Or will our poor sick hollow souls be venturing somewhere darker?
