Dark Souls 3 gets its final piece of content today with the new The Ringed City DLC.
The expansion includes brand new locations, enemies and gear, as well as fresh story content to unpack as you play through the notoriously challenging environments. As the very last entry in the series, the Ringed City will no doubt build on the game’s deep and mysterious lore, and may even tie up some of the story’s loose ends and unanswered questions.
“Fear not the dark, ashen one. Journey to the world’s end to search for the Ringed City and encounter new lands, new bosses, new enemies with new armor, magic and items. Experience the epic final chapter of a dark world that could only be created by the mind of Hidetaka Miyazaki. This new adventure has players chasing after the Slave Knight Gael to the literal end of the world as he searches for the Dark Soul of Humanity.
At the close of the Age of Fire, as the world ends and all lands converge upon themselves, a lone adventurer descends into the madness of the earth and uncovers the secrets of the past. As players make their way to the fabled Ringed City they will encounter ancient beasts, a new cast of characters teetering on the edge of insanity, new armor, weapons, magic, and at the bottom of it all, a long lost city filled with new horrors for players to overcome.”
How to access the DLC
**Ashes of Ariandel Spoilers ahead**
If you’re looking to make a start on the new content, how you do so is dependent on your progress in the previous DLC pack, Ashes of Ariandel.
If you took on the formidable Sister Friede, the DLC’s final boss, you’ll want to head to the bonfire in her boss room. Remember the room’s strange snake-tailed statue, that looked an awful lot like Priscilla? You’ll find a brand new bonfire has appeared around it.
If you didn’t play Ariandel, or didn’t finish it, you can still access the DLC via a new bonfire close to the Kiln of the First Flame.
