That Dark Souls series is one of the most popular game franchises of all time, a brutal action role-playing game set in a dark fantasy world. The games are known for their extreme difficulty, with numerous fatalities expected throughout the series as players learn to survive in an unforgiving environment and fight enemies that often require unique strategies to defeat them. FromSoftware has released a trilogy of Dark Souls Games, as well as several games created on the same general model, including bloodborne and this year’s hit elden ring.
Dark Souls: The Board Game was originally announced in 2017 and involves players exploring different locations and fighting monsters while improving their characters.

Steamforged also released one Dark Souls tabletop roleplaying game and a Dark Souls: The Card Game along with a number of standalone Dark Souls Miniatures for painting and collecting purposes.
Dark Souls: The Board Game – Tomb of the Giants and Dark Souls: The Board Game: Painted world of Ariamis will both be released in retail stores this November.
