I am a bit late to the Dark Souls party you could say. Over a decade late at this point, but hey, better late than never right? If you've ever looked at Dark Souls or similar games and thought to yourself, "I wish I could like these," I'm here to tell you that you can.
FromSoftware has confirmed that the Dark Souls series sold over 27 million copies so far. Additionally, Dark Souls III sold over 10 million copies, making it responsible for well over a third of the total sales.
Elden Ring is an upcoming Dark Souls-like game from Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin and Japanese developer FromSoftware.
