What Is The Souls Series?
The Souls games are an action-rpg series created by Japanese developer From Software and published by Namco Bandai
Set in a high fantasy world, Souls games is a love-letter to western medieval fantasy and rpgs
Notorious for intense and unforgiving difficulty, along with limited player guidance in both gameplay and story
Unique "always-on" PvP that allows players to co-op or invade the games of strangers

DID WE MISS ANYTHING?
THANKS FOR COMING!
DON'T FORGET TO
Takes place several centuries after DS1, most of which has been forgotten
Centers around the ancient city of Drangleic, ravaged by war long ago
Giants crossed the sea to Drangleic, possibly sparking the war
Ruled by King Vendrick, a just king who was searching for the cure to the Undead Curse
Vendrick lost his mind in the search for the curse's cure, and eventually hollowed out
Queen Nashandra manipulates the new chosen undead into opening the path to the Throne of Want
OPEN DISCUSSION
A DARK SOULS & BLOODBORNE FAN PANEL
DARK SOULS GAMEPLAY
DEMON'S SOULS LORE
DEMON'S SOULS GAMEPLAY
DEMON'S SOULS PVP
BLOODBORNE LORE
The player must find the cure for their blood affliction in the famed city of Yharnam.
Takes place in the ruined Victorian-style city of Yharnam, which is inhabited by crazed citizens, afflicted with a mysterious illness that slowly transforms the infected into savage beasts
As the player progresses they find the true source of the night and the beast affliction and must work to end it.
BLOODBORNE GAMEPLAY
The Kingdom of Boletaria is plunged into eternal fog by the awakening of the Old One by King Allant
The Soul Arts return to the world to revive the use of magic/miracles, demons are released to feed on the souls of the living
Player is tasked with defeating the Old One and imprisoning it once again
Game takes a much more offense-oriented stance compared to the Souls series' previous focus on defense and reaction, now more reliant on counters and dodging
Heavy attacks can now be charged for additional damage/backstab
Guns replace shields as the primary off-hand weapon, but weapons have limited ranges and ammo
Used more for stunning and crowd control, can be used to set up Critical Strikes
Magic uses bullets to cast
Counter Attacks restore a small amount of health when retaliating immediately after taking damage
All weapons demonstrate some kind of transforming ability
Thoughts on BB's playstyle compared to Souls?
BLOODBORNE PVP
Invasions and Co-op still present, but players no longer appear as "Phantoms"
Multiplayer done through the Bell mechanic, where the player must ring the bell to call for help and another player ring their helping bell / invasion bell, using Insight in the process
Generally regarded as the worst PvP in the series
Thoughts on the overall multiplayer system?
Game divided into Archstone worlds (1-1,1-2, etc.) with bosses at the end of each level
Player must defeat the Arch Demons at the end of each Archstone area to gain access to the Old One (5 Archstones total)
World Tendency/Player Tendency system for unique levels
Play style much more focused on singular combat and unique fight mechanics to overcome enemies and bosses
More complex upgrade system for weapons
Eye Stones used to invade/help other players, can invade players or be summoned to fight them/help them
Variety of different character builds viable in PvP

Favorite Builds?
Like/Dislike about DeS PvP?
Lordran has been plagued by the "undead curse" for countless years, seemingly abandoned by the gods
The curse causes undeath, marked by the darksign, and gradual insanity in a process called "hollowing"
With the fading of the First Flame, the remaining gods strive to prolong the Age of Fire
The Chosen Undead, rescued from the Undead Asylum, is tasked with the quest of ringing both Bells of Awakening, and to either continue the era of gods or end it, and bring about the Age of Dark
