FYI, this story is more than a year old

Whilst I'll happily admit to being too feeble a gamer to handle the Dark Souls games, fans of Dark Souls III will be rejoicing on 25 October with the release of the game's first expansion, Ashes of Ariandel.

Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel gives fans the opportunity to delve further into the lore behind the critically acclaimed series.

Players will be invited to return to the world of Dark Souls III and uncover a terrible secret that lies within an unnamed frozen land. The expansion features a brand new environment filled with terrifying new enemies, challenges, and an exciting new chapter in the overarching Dark Souls III storyline.

In addition to adding a new environment, the Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel expansion will also include new weapons, armour sets, and magic for players to discover and experiment with, as well as new features for the game's wildly popular competitive multiplayer mode.

Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel will be available for download on October 25, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via STEAM. The Dark Souls III season pass includes the Ashes of Ariandel expansion and a further DLC expansion, expected to be released in early 2017.
