Dark Souls 3 announcement coming August 24th – DLC?

Dark Souls 3 announcement coming August 24th – DLC?

With Gamescom 2016 launching today, many fans hoped to see the Dark Souls 3 DLC make it into Namco’s booth.

Visiting the premises, however, gave us only a view of some nice figurines.

The official twitter account for Dark Souls has since revealed an announcement for an annoucement, coming August 24th. This is most likely the expected DLC – but given the last major announcement was merchandising, don’t get your hopes too high!

    Please make Soulsborne boss action figures. I want Manus, Gascoigne, and the Dragon god in toy form.

    Bloodborne ones would be up to Sony, not namco, but there are a few Dark Souls ones being made.

    It is not an announcement, it is mimic-announcement and everyone dies!
    Dark Souls 4 is going to casual walking simulator!

    Gimme, gimme, gimme!

    an GC "announcement"/reveal/premiere for just Merchandise/figurines is quite poor in my opinion – that is really disappointing! -.-‘

    An announcement for an announcement. I just… ugh. That’s frustrating.

    Their last "major announcement" was merchandise. Unironically.

    Maybe the announcement is that they’ve been stealing weapon ideas from me all along.

    Looking at you bow/shield combo and whirligig saw

    DLC would be nice too.

    idk i have no hopes for dlc since it was stated before it had a fall eta and aug isnt fall. the new patch notes seems too short but in conjunction with a "announcement" it may be foreshadowing a dlc in the upcoming month. Im thinking a sept release and one for march. that gives them a few months to adjust things in after first dlc drops while keeping interest in the game bc if we compared it to other games the hype has waned.

    Mark my words, ashen ones: the announcement will be about shirts.

    shirts, shirts, shirts

    It won’t be shirts, I promise.

    It may be coffee or mugs though.

    No, just kidding. It’s gonna be REALLY awesome.

    I’m worried this is all just hype for another Slashy Souls.

    Slashy Souls was exactly what it was supposed to be. A comically bad Souls translation to get people saying the word "souls" a few more times than they already were.

    I had a blast with it honestly. The achievements were hysterical.

    Don´t forget about the Dark Souls board game. There are figurines included. Click here for the kickstarter.

    September is technically Fall, we’re in late August, sounds about right to me.

    Okay, now that’s the kind of merchandise I’d be happy over. Replicas of in-game stuff, good for cosplays or just mounting on a stand and looking fancy.

    Stuff that looks like something out of the game > normal stuff that references the game. I’d wear a Xanthous Crown. Or, if that’s too unrealistic, probably Karla’s Hat or a Pharis Hat.

    I’d buy the DS2 Shadow set (and cross fingers for a Fume Sorcerer Mask). My least favorite of the series, but it had that armor combination, so it weighed out for me.
