Dark Souls III Leaked Ahead of E3
This is why we can't have nice things, like announcements at the show.

Less than two weeks ahead of this year's E3 Expo, Dark Souls III was leaked via YouTube, and you'll never guess what it looks like! The third instalment in From Software's popular yet difficult series will also be seeing a few changes. But don't worry, it'll still be dark and broody, and you'll probably still die a lot!

The leaked details list PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (which is apparently negotiable) as platforms, a and 2016 release along with support for '1-4 players.' Dark Souls III will also see some gameplay tweaks like a 'Heat Up' which is said to change boss fights; an option to sacrifice bodies which allows for a bonfire at the location of sacrifice, and even places you in another player's world (albeit as a target for them); plus special abilities that allow you to 'rush in' for a powerful attack that damages you as well, and 'circle,' a seemingly evasive ability.

Also mentioned are ten classes available at the beginning of the game, twelve areas, plenty of new enemies and bosses, not to mention lot of new weapons and armour, about an hour's worth of in-engine cutscenes, and some graphical adjustments.
