On the well-worn path made smooth by the mainstream, the human species plods mindlessly, pursuing happiness. Except, that is, for a certain few — the divergent, the complex, the Dark Souls. Mesmerized by the macabre, transfixed by torment, these souls seek completion in hopelessness, despair and impending doom — where true fortitude is earned. There is a place where suffering, misery and challenge reign, where only the iron-willed and the cunning survive. You made the journey once before. Now, descend once again into the depths of devastation in Dark Souls II. Capture the thrill and horror as never before with the Dark Souls II. Open the beautiful, custom-printed display box and bring elements of the Dark Souls' world into your own. Display the 12", solid PVC Warrior Knight to show your strength and determination. Unfold the full-color fabric map to hang on your wall or to chart your achievements. Flip through the exclusive hardbound artbook, filled with never-before-seen images. Finally, crack open the Black Armor Edition metal case to reveal the Original Game Soundtrack, to set your dark gaming mood, and the Dark Souls II game itself. The horrific saga marches forward, forging a new, warped path in the role-playing genre in the second installment of the critically acclaimed Dark Souls franchise. Delve deeper than ever into the realm of death and despair as the game world expands to an even larger scope. Assuming the identity of a new hero, you'll face obstacles, bloodthirsty bosses and deadly enemies as you unravel the storyline. Staying true to the franchise's roots, every fresh challenge goads you with the same unrelenting punishment that's become a Dark Souls hallmark. Misery loves company — in the revamped, server-based multiplayer mode, you can share your pain and discover a twisted new way to play with others. Look deep within yourself — can you muster the intestinal fortitude to stare death in the eye?
