For that is your fate... the fate of the cursed."

Dark Souls II is the second game in the Dark Souls series. It was developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment in 2014 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Long ago, in a walled off land, far to the north, a great king built a great kingdom called Drangleic. A place where souls may mend the ailing mind of humans cursed by the Darksign, an augur of darkness that grants its bearer the inability to die. But in return, the curse will take your past, your future, your very light, until you're something other than human. A thing that feeds on souls. A Hollow. And so, one day all "Undead" find themselves standing before Drangleic's gates, without really knowing why...

You take the role of one of these Undead, dubbed The Bearer of the Curse, an untold number of years after the events of the first Dark Souls. After arriving in a desperate gambit to not succumb to the curse of undeath and discovering all that's left of Drangleic is a decrepit fallen kingdom, you are tasked with seeking out its long-lost king, Vendrick. But to do so, you must first take the souls of the four Great Ones scattered across the ruins of Drangleic whose power may yet lead the Bearer of the Curse to Vendrick… and perhaps the truth behind Drangleic’s downfall.

Each episode adds new areas, enemies, bosses, and equipment, while delving into the past of previous kingdoms that rose and fell where Drangleic now stands.
