New Dark Souls Comic Explores Events Leading up to First Game

By David Meikleham on at

Despite Dark Souls 3 being a fairly definitive ending for FromSoftware's mesmerically murderous franchise, 2018 is already shaping up to be quite the Dark Souls celebration.

A remastered version of 2011's sublime action-RPG is coming to PS4, PC and Xbox One on May 25th, and now Titan Comic has confirmed it's publishing a four-part miniseries of comics that focus on the universe's lore and overarching story leading up to the events of the original Dark Souls.

Written by Ryan O'Sullivan, with art from Anton Kokarev, Age of Fire will have "all the main characters" from Dark Souls, as it explores a new telling of the Legends of Silver Knights. The title of the comic series references the apocalypse first hinted at in Dark Souls' opening cinematic.
