Dark Souls 2 director Yui Tanimura has said that Dark Souls 2 will offer more freedom and players can choose the direction to take in the game.
There will be less hand-holding and you can start the game halfway if you’re brave enough.
“We’re hoping that if the player tries hard enough, or are willing enough, they could even start halfway through the game, depending on how willing or how brave they are,” he told DigitalSpy.
“When discussing how the player approaches the end stages of the game, Tanimura said that while the goal of “trying to cure a curse” is the same, how you reach the latter stages “is dependent on the player”.
“You won’t have to follow a certain line, it will be unique for all players, I think.”
The game comes out next year on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. It will be really balanced.
