Softly, gen­tly…

The Art of Killing Magic? Mana? How blue you’re feel­ing? Ex­actly what Dark Souls III’s new blue en­ergy bar con­tains is hard to de­fine, as it’s not just drained by spell­cast­ing. The bar also pow­ers new Weapon Arts – pow­er­ful moves unique to each weapon you find. Use a two-handed weapon and you’ll be able to in­dulge in deadly spin­ning strikes or an in­cred­i­bly pow­er­ful rush­ing at­tack. We’d have kept play­ing our demo with a two-handed weapon, but if we tried to pre­view Dark Souls III with­out a shield, this would be 3,000 words de­scrib­ing the ‘YOU DIED’ screen. And we’re sav­ing that gold for the re­view.
