Dark Souls is a video game developed by From Software. It is a widely popular action roleplaying video game on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms.

Dark Souls is the first installment of the Dark Souls series. The game has sold approximately 2,500,000 copies world wide. Dark Souls itself is well recognized and praised for its immense underlying storyline, "punishing" difficulty, unique multiplayer, as well as its wide variety of weapons, armor and equipment.

A 2014 sequel, Dark Souls II, was developed by From Software, and Bandai Namco Games for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.


[edit] Character

[edit] Starting Classes

Dark Souls has ten different classes to select from when initially creating a character. These classes do not have a long term effect, but merely will be a short-term effect in which your starting weaponry and equipment will differ.

[edit] Stats

Dark Souls uses a leveling system that revolves around souls, the recognized currency of the game. Increasing your Soul Level will benefit you through the use of additional health or stamina, better weapon scaling, enhanced resistance, and more. Leveling up can be done by resting at a bonfire and selecting the "Level Up" option, then investing Soul Levels into the stats of your choice. Once successfully done, you can not remove your Soul Levels or be refunded so make sure you spend them accordingly

[edit] Starting Gifts

Starting gifts have a variety of effects that may or may not heavily impact your gameplay, though it depends on which gift you select when initially creating your character. Each and every gift can be obtained at later points in the game, but some are consumables and a few are key items that are not discarded upon use.

[edit] Locations

While the progressive gameplay of Dark Souls is not enforced, as it is an open-ended world, the following locations are ordered in the suggested, "proper" order. If you are new to the game, this method of travel should give you the full experience of Dark Souls.
