FromSoftware is continuing to support Dark Souls III with a healthy stable of DLC, and the latest chapter is the most sizable addition yet. Ashes of Ariandel launches October 25th and has you exploring a new, icy landscape that holds a terrible secret. Naturally the pack also includes a new host of weapons, armor, and features for the notoriously sadistic competitive multiplayer mode.
I still don't understand the masochistic appeal of this series but then again I might just be getting old and tired. Check out the trailer below for more.
