'Dark Souls: Nightfall' Is Coming Next Month, And It Looks Incredible

Dark Souls: Nightfall, an unofficial sequel to the exceptionally exquisite Dark Souls: Remastered, is on its way in January and players cannot contain their excitement. 


Incredibly enough, this is the work of a modest group of modders and the project started to take shape two years ago. While the team’s approach to sharing snapshots of their custom creations with fans is along the lines of “less is more,” hype is still sky-high for Nightfall. Announcing that the mod has been delayed by one month with an eerie teaser trailer, fans have praised the “monumental vibes” of the upcoming sequel and that the team should take all of the time they need to polish the game to a shine. A sickly, sepulchral shine, but a shine nonetheless.

Some of you might be thinking, “what even is Nightfall?” It contains an entirely new story, new characters and bosses, new world map and more, essentially continuing the original game and evolving upon the challenge to deliver something that scratches that itch before Elden Ring arrives. “Combat will be faster-paced, against a mixture of familiar and unfamiliar foes, with brand new voiced NPCs and side-quests,” said modder Grimrukh. “Nightfall also takes many cues from the design of Majora’s Mask, one of my favorite games.” 

Bet you weren’t expecting that. Coincidentally, Nightfall will come out ahead of the release of Elden Ring, which was pushed back to February of next year. The “depth and strategic freedom of the game exceeded initial expectations,” said studio FromSoftware. Delays can be frustrating for everyone, yet ultimately they are the best path to take to ensure that the game is something that developers and players are proud to play.

Our Ewan Moore recently got the chance to go hands-on with Elden Ring and he died a lot. “Elden Ring makes a number of changes big and small to the established formula that slowly revealed themselves to me over the course of my time with the game and left me with a wonderful feeling: that I’ve only just scratched the surface of something truly remarkable,” he said.
