    The Dark Souls 3 support group thread

    Knights and Dames, the hour is nearly upon us, probably for the last time in eternity. DS3 is about a week from being released on Steam and my panties are already dripping wet. So let us start the discussion, lets keep it fairly spoiler free (please white-out spoilers) and maybe just keep spoilers to specific questions people ask (again whited-out please) and just have some dark fun.

    My first question (spoilers allowed): where did you preorder from or where are you buying it from? 40 is a tad much, but with a 20% discount I am good.

    Praise the sun!

    I heard through the grapevine that through Green Man Gaming you can get 20% discount using SPRING20 as discount code. But I was a sucker and just forked out the 50-something EUR on Steam instead... Anyway, I have cleared out a lot of my backlog and deliberately not started any new singleplayer games over the last 3 weeks so I can focus 110% on DS3 when it releases!

    I preordered from some UK site that had it crazy cheap (like 30% discount) and is apparently very legit. Also ordered a Steam controller, should arrive this week, just in time to set it up using DS2.

    Unfortunately the coupons do not apply on DS3 :(

    Dreamlord, can't remember right now, but I found it using IsthereAnyDeal.com , a very good web site!

    Amazon offers a 20% discount on all prerelease games for Prime subscribers (at least in the US), but I believe this only applies to console versions.

    I'll be breaking my no pre-order policy and picking it up from Shopto.net for the PS4. Just under 40, which is OK for a console version.

    Little disappointing to see Adam's positive, but deflated Wot I Think. It makes it sound like DS2 again, which I enjoyed enough, but was hoping it could be more in the same league as Bloodborne, which I loved like DS1 (probably more so.)

    Either way, the Souls games are a unique experience. They are worth playing, even if they are not improving on what has gone before.

    Folded and preordered from Instant Gaming too. 47-odd for the game plus season pass, can't say I like season passes but Dark Souls series DLC to date has without exception been brilliant.

    After watching some gameplays it doesn't look like DS2 at all. Everything I've seen seems to be much better than DS2.




    Music is great.

    The impression I keep getting is also that it's more Dark Souls 1 with Bloodborne influences and that they learned from the mistakes DS2 made. What I constantly see as well is that it's very familiar, treading the same waters in many ways. Depending on the reviewer that is held up as a positive or a negative. Also pretty much all reviews I have seen have been by people who have played DS1 and 2 a lot. Be curious to see how a Souls-virgin would view the game.

    Grabbed from Instant Gaming, cheers for the link.

    I'm still avoiding anything with spoilers but Adam's WiT has me pretty certain that I'm gonna lose 100+ hours to another glorious Souls game.

    Do you think it's necessary to play DS2 in order to get into this? Albeit I bought DS2 I never got around to playing it (too many games not enough time) , or is it unrelated?

    I haven't played DS2 and I'm planning on playing this first. If I know anything about Dark Souls it's that having a background in its lore and continuity is in no way required to play and enjoy the game.

    Absolutely no need to play DS2 before this. Reports say it's more related to DS1, lore-wise, but the story should hold on its own.

    You can also look for VaatiVidya on Youtube, or EpicnameBro , both have really good lore videos for the souls series that will fill any gaps you might have (and again, there's no need to fill those gaps).

    OK. I did upgrade DS2 to SoTFS, but I'm not seeing a window to play that anytime soon in my schedule (still trying to wrap up my XCOM2 commander playthrough). But if the word is good I might jump straight to DS3

    Kadayi, no need to have played 2, but you really should, as it is excellent.

    So, I pre-ordered from GamesPlanet for 32 and am eagerly counting the days. It will be a week of little sleep, the next one...
