Dark Souls III is one of our most anticipated games of 2016 so every time our YouTube pings, telling us that Bandai Namco uploaded a video, our hearts start beating really fast. If you are into the franchise, or just into really pretty CG cinematics with massive giants and freaky lore, then you need to watch this video.

The clip shows what is clear to be the opening scene from the upcoming game where the Lords of Cinder rise from their grave. It is only 3-minutes long, but is it enough to get us all hot and flustered.

In venturing North, the Pilgrims discover the truth of the Old Words…. Yhorm the Giant, Aldrich Saint of the Deep, Farron’s Undead Legion and more await you in Lothric. Are you ready to fight them all?

Dark Souls III is set for release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 12 April 2016.
