"Players will travel to the frozen land of Ariandel where they will uncover the mystery of what destroyed this land."

 

Ashes of Ariandel is a DLC in Dark Souls 3. It is the first of the 2 DLC's for the game and will release on October 25th, and is priced at US$14.99 on PSN/XBL (US$24.99 for season pass). This page will be updated as more information is released. Initial screenshots can be found on this article.

        I happen to think the 'anime' weapon arts were amazing. I love anime, possibly to the point where I'm considered a weeaboo. I sometimes pretend I'm playing a Dark Souls anime, and the weapon arts just make me feel like a badass. It fits perfectly, and there's no harm in having a few weapons like that.

          weapon arts are too goofy for Dark Souls. This isn't anime territory but they pushed that stuff into it without any need and goes over the top with the DLC weapons. All in all PvP feels old and uninspired. It could be so much more but all they have basically 1v1 in different variations. No capture the flag, king of the hill, castle rush. Nothing. And what is your reward to get gold in the arena? Also nothing. No armor, no weapons. In mmorpgs you call that ultra late game. When there is nothing more to explore or to do and you have to invent events for yourself because lack of content. But in Dark Souls this "ultra late game" begins after 10h...

            The Old Hunters DLC was supposed to be 2 part as well. Patience guys. They are taking their time making the DLC worthwhile. You just enjoyed the first half of it. The second is coming and it's gonna be GLORIOUS

              This was crap, only two bosses and practically no story at all, like even less than usual. A half understood story is all very well when you're borrowing books for free miyazaki you prick, not when you're paying 70 quid for a game

                Rather disappointed with ashes especially with how better and awesome the bloodborne DLC was. Hell that was almost like s new mini game in itself I just hope they release some more stuff down the track

                  DLC was ok... a bit shallow in length, and was also a disappointment in the same regard considering no added trophies on PS4. I'm glad I picked this game up for cheap in Hastings' closing sales, otherwise I'd have felt a little more than hosed for shelling out an extra $15 for one simple level. The landscape, enemies, and items are a minute but pleasant offset to this otherwise trivial addition to DS3.

                    I have the game DS3 on PS4 and I have bought in Disck, but the dlc I have installed it in order to play it, but it didn't work out, can anyone help me and tell me how can I play the game

                      I have tried everything... re downloading the game and dlc, the great rotwood was already defeated along with the deacons, i talked to velka, i went to the shrine and reloaded where gael spawns, I started new game ++ and did all of this again. HE, WILL NOT, SPAWN!!!

                        I have played DS3 for quite some time and 1 thing I was really hoping for was a recovering mp system like in demon souls. I have always wanted to make a caster class but refuse to because I hate limitations.
