Dark Souls series seems to be finished by the release of the third part of the game. Nonetheless, developers give players a faint hope for one more game. No promises, no prognoses, only a hint that there are still story branches which might be developed. It is true there is a possibility Dark Souls 4 will be released.
If we can judge from the sequence of the previous parts released we can come to a conclusion that the new part will come not before 2018 or even later.
The possible release of the fourth part will most certainly be for PlayStation and Xbox. Is PC version possible? Why not? Taking into account that the last part has been released for Windows too, we can rely on the fourth going the same route.
If we can imagine Darks Souls 4 coming why can’t we think about its features? The game may be closer to an action and lose of its RPG particuliarities just like the previous part. The possibility is that new characters and weapons will be introduced with an improved upgrading system. Many fans hope the game will get a much wider world which provides more opportunities. It would be interesting as well as modifying design of the characters. Even though their look and costumes are rather interesting but they are quite the same. Bandai Namco is known for analyzing feedback on their games that is why they will be adaptive to the criticism made.
Hardly can we make any predictions on new characters. Perhaps we will be absolutely unfamiliar with them. However, there is a possibility that some of the new characters may have a connection with the existing ones.
As we can hope the possible part will stay a third person RPG which will be centred on world exploration. The game may still give you a lot of experience in this world and explain details of the plot. Even though Dark Souls offers us quite a wide world the new one may become much bigger brining in better graphics and physics. The system of check points will most certainly stay the same because it is quite convenient and does not cause any complaints from the players. The system of upgrades and resting should be improved or at least modified to make the games less linear.
Darks Souls 4 does sound like an impossible release but still developers give us a glimpse of hope. Will this game finally be or announced or it will stop? Still difficult to give a direct answer.
