Dealspwn Playthrough | Dark Souls II Beta Part 7 - Meet The Hunter (High Difficulty Edition)
It's been a long road filled with death, more death, red phantoms dealing out death, and fat things with giant sickles that have a taste for slaughter, but we've finally reached the end of our dedicated episodes of Dealspwn Playthrough from Dark Souls II's Beta. In our final look at the recent Network Test, we change classes once again to show you the nimble Archer in action.

But during the recording of this video, Namco Bandai decided to put the game into High Difficulty mode, and push Carl to his limit. Can he get to the Skeleton Lord before the servers shut down with increasingly challenging enemies now in his way? You'll have to watch to find out.

Please note that, as this is a Beta version, the footage shown may not reflect the final product.

Dark Souls II is scheduled for release in March 2014 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

What's high difficulty mode all about then? Is it something that will be in the final game, or just something that From put in the beta to see if the network could handle high volumes of simultaneous ragequits?

It's definitely something that will be in the final game, but nobody is sure how it will be. It could end up being the difficulty for NG+, although some theorise that it will be similar to the Black / White world tendancy of Demon's Souls. We'll be on the lookout for more info though, and will let you know as soon as we hear anything.
