E3 2015: Dark Souls 3 confirmed, arrives early 2016

Bandai Namco have announced that Dark Souls 3 is on track for a release in early 2016. The announcement came with a trailer during Microsoft's E3 press briefing. The CGI trailer ends with the tag "Now only embers remain."

The world premiere for the trailer shows a dusty world and what looked like a giant awakening from ancient slumber. He gets up, is mad and ignites a huge, firey sword.

Bandai Namco also confirmed that the game will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam as well as Xbox One. Series creator Miyazaki is returning to direct the game. According to the press release, Dark Souls 3 will be the series' "final episode".
