  By this point, over a year after its release, I’m finally getting a handle on Bloodborne. Having never got my Souls on before, it was beating my scrote into a soggy pile of spam for quite a while, and I almost quit entirely. But I stuck with it like the stubborn ol’ bastard I am, got gud, and it became one of my favorite games of all time.  

Now, I know what you’re thinking. A story of triumph over adversity like that deserves to made into the next blockbuster movie. Spielberg, if you’re reading this, you can have the rights to this one for a couple million. But there’s no time for all this prattle, because I’m just circling around to my main point: Dark Souls III. I haven’t reached the not-sucking-ass stage with this one yet, sadly.

My main issue is with PVP. Against the general lumpen enemies of the game, I do okay, because their behaviors are fairly predictable and easy enough to manipulate a lot of the time. Other people, though, can be freaking crazy. I’ve no idea what they’re using, how they’re going to approach me or what they’re going to bust out. Which makes most duels end pretty damn unfortunately for me.

If you’re a PVP kinda guy, though, you’ll be happy with Dark Souls III’s first slice of DLC. We don’t have any dates for it yet, or any suitably melodramatic name for the content or anything, but we’ve got a couple snippets from Destructoid.

First up, the DLC will feature a spangly new PVP-only map called Immortal Competition. It’s set in a snow storm, and all things icetastic seem to be the focus of the content. There’s a new savage-you-with-a-shitstorm-of-ice spell, and a gaggle of new weapons including a fairly mean looking great sword. That’s it for now, but I’m sure it’s enough to get ardent Souls-masochists on board.
