Hi all I’m back with the latest DLC for Dark Souls III! It’ll be a shorty, but a goodie for this review! It’s my Ashes of Ariandel review!

Plot: From what I can gather from the sparse information of this DLC, we enter a painting that holds a small pocket dimension where the world of Ariandel resides. Personally I can’t make heads or tails of the Dark Souls series anyway, so I wasn’t any more confused then usual.

Great to be able to attack while still looking cool!

Gameplay: Ashes is Dark Souls III to the core, and while there are new enemies and items to collect, it really wasn’t a game changing experience. That being said, Souls fans will be ecstatic with the game as it provides some of the most intense gameplay I’ve ever had.

If you dare, pick up a copy of Dark Souls III from Amazon.

The DLC starts with a bang almost immediately, and I had a difficult time dealing with the new enemies for a while. Especially the new enemies that disguise themselves as trees.

You shall not pass!

There is one downside to this DLC and that is that there were only two bosses that I faced and while they were tough it was just a matter of time and lots of effort to defeat them. There may be more bosses, but I didn’t encounter them in my playthrough of the new areas.

Art and Music: Nothing really different from the main game, just with a lot more snow theme.

Overall: For Souls fans, Ashes of Ariandel is going to be a small, but rich experience to enjoy.

Just look at all the new friends just waiting to meet you in this Dark Souls DLC!
