Dive back into the chilling artwork behind one of the most challenging and thrilling game series ever with “Dark Souls II: Design Works”!

Toronto, ON – June 18, 2015 – With its renowned difficulty and gripping gameplay, Dark Souls is the action-RPG franchise that gamers love to hate! While most games reward your successes, Dark Souls punishes you for your failures, making for a grueling yet intensely rewarding experience like no other. Despite most adventurers barely surviving the original game, players clamoring for more got their wish with the equally challenging sequel, Dark Souls II. Now, UDON Entertainment is also following up its hugely successful Dark Souls: Design Works art book with another equally gorgeous artwork collection – DARK SOULS II: DESIGN WORKS!

Dark Souls II: Design Works collects all the chilling and haunting fantasy artwork behind the critically-acclaimed game in a prestigious hardcover tome. Featured inside are armor and weapon designs, character concepts, enemies, locations, rough sketches, an exclusive interview with the game’s creators, and more. Completing the book is a bevy of concept material from all three chapters of the game’s DLC trilogy, “The Lost Crowns”.

With Dark Souls III just announced at E3 for an early 2016 release, there’s no better time to immerse yourself in the chilling artwork behind this landmark series.

Dark Souls II: Design Works will be available in stores in October 2015. Media inquiries and/or requests for review copies should be directed to Jenny Myung at
