Dark Souls 2 – 6 ways to make it “accessible” without ruining it


Detail the covenants

[Update: here are the first Dark Souls 2 PS3 screens.]

Covenants are mysterious groups that lie scattered across Lordran, and they were left almost entirely unexplained in Dark Souls. The prerequisites for joining, the benefits of being in each, and the consequences for betraying each covenant were left clouded in the mist. The only way to figure out what might happen if you were to, say, kill a covenant NPC, was by actually doing it. And doing so almost always results in something bad and irreversible happening. We love the covenants, they’re fascinating in all their mystery, but the effects of each one should take a front seat in Dark Souls 2.
