Dark Souls 3 "Launch Trailer"

Spoiler alert: if you haven't played Dark Souls 3 yet, this brutal trailer will serve as a premature intro to some of the most frightful sights and toughest bosses in the game. Set to the haunting sounds of "In The Woods Somewhere" by Irish singer-songwriter Hozier, Dark Souls 3's launch trailer basically presents the game at its most action packed and white-knuckled. If you've played a Souls game, you'll of course know that this isn't the whole story, but seeing it all presented so vividly is striking. It's a great trip down memory lane for a Dark Souls 3 veteran, and quite likely an irresistible invitation to hop back in.
