Gorgeous 'Dark Souls' Sequel 'Nightfall' Finally Has A Release Date

Elden Ring is a long way off, but fans of Dark Souls are in for a treat with the launch of Nightfall, a sequel developed by a group of fans which looks gobsmackingly gorgeous.

Continuing the story of the original game, Nightfall is actually a single-player mod for Dark Souls: Remastered. Yes, it is only compatible with the upgraded version of the game, but there is a decent rationale for the decision - the original simply doesn't have the room for some of the "ambitious" alterations and additions. These include "new story, new characters and bosses," as well as augmentations to combat for a greater challenge to players. New voiced NPCs are on hand to offer a plethora of errands and odd jobs in the world of Lordran, and there's a surprising influence on the fan-made project.

"Nightfall also takes many cues from the design of The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask, one of my favourite games," said one of the team members, Grimrukh. It's certainly interesting, isn't it? Elden Ring has an open world like Breath Of The Wild, and Nightfall is inspired by Majora's Mask. It's almost like those Zelda games are popular and well-made, or something.

Modders are extremely creative, as evidenced by the existence of Nightfall, yet there is also the opportunity to simply throw a giant spanner made of jelly into the cogs of a game. In that vein, check out the Kanto starters in Los Santos.

Possibly the most inspired part of the mod is that it will disable a player's connection to the online side of Dark Souls, preventing their account from the risk of being banned through the use of third-party content. "So now I've got this and Elden Ring to wait for. I'm hyped," said @OnlineEyeDee_. "Holy sh*t this looks bonkers. fantastic work lads!" added @ppennek. Nightfall is arriving at the end of this year, and given how quickly the first half of the year has gone, blink and we'll be in December soon enough.

Elden Ring comes to PC, last-gen and new-gen consoles one month after that, and that trailer released in the Summer Games Fest set the Internet alight. To be fair, it had been literally two years since we'd seen anything new from FromSoftware. But, now we know it's got an open world, horseback riding, fearsome enemies and it will be easier than Dark Souls.

Nightfall will be released on December 21st, 2021.
