Ever since Dark Souls 3 concluded the video game trilogy, the fans are eager to know when they will explore Dark Souls 4. The chances are pretty low indeed. However, its immense popularity can easily make it possible. Moreover, the creators also hinted that they are not done with this series yet. So, when will the fans be able to play the fourth installment of this video game? Keep reading to know.
Dark Souls is a video game sub-series of Souls developed by From Softwares. Namco Bandai Games released the first installment of this video game in 2011. The game was an instant hit and was liked by the players globally. Therefore the developers didn’t waste any time and released the second and third installments in 2014 and 2016, respectively. All three games of this series were a huge success. As a result, the players are craving for more of this role-playing video game.
Will There Be Dark Souls 4?
Its been more than four years since the release of the last installment of Dark Souls game series. And now the fans are demanding more of it. However, the creators are pretty tight-lipped as they are not providing any information regarding the fate of the series. The fans got their last update in 2015 when Hidetaka Miyazaki said he is not done with the series yet and would expand the universe beyond the third installment. Hence we can say that Dark Souls 4 is still on the cards.
Currently, the creators are busy with a new IP, Elden Ring. It will be a brand new role-playing game by From Softwares. The fans are really hyped for this game because its story is written by the writer of Game Of Thrones, George R.R. Martin. Elden Rings already faced a lot of delays, and the creators don’t want to delay it anymore. And if Dark Souls 4 really is on the cards, then we will get its official announcement after the release of Elden Rings.
What To Expect From The Fourth Installment?
It is hard to say whether there will be the fourth installment or not. And it is even harder to predict what it will have in store for the players. It can continue the trilogy, set in an alternate timeline, a soft reboot, and even come up with a brand new story. Anything can happen in the case of Dark Souls 4. However, one thing is certain that From Softwares will surely improve the gameplay and remove the flaws which were present in their previous games.
The players are getting desperate to see new storylines and bosses in the upcoming game. They just want to fight new bosses with an improved combat range. There are multiple ways to explore the new storylines for Dark Souls 4, and now it will be interesting to see which one the creators will choose. The next installment might come with Day/Night cycles and more open spaces.
Dark Souls 4: Release Date
The players might have to wait for a long time to play the fourth installment of this video game series. Even if it is the next game by From Softwares after Elden Rings, its production will take years to complete. Therefore, the fans can expect Dark Souls 4 to release sometime in 2023.
