Will Dark Souls 2 Revisit the Painted World of Ariamis?
IGN debuted the world’s first look at Dark Souls II gameplay today. Combing through the footage reveals a hint as to where we’ll be playing, and potentially when.
Specifically, we believe we will revisit the Painted World of Ariamis from Dark Souls, judging by a comparison of Dark Souls and Dark Souls II screens and image. We also believe this section will be set before the events of the Dark Souls. See below for yourself.
The Painted World of Ariamis is an optional zone in Dark Souls found in the city of Anor Londo. It exists in a sort of cursed-state, trapped in time, and is inhabited by some particularly terrible things, including Crossbreed Priscilla, a part woman-part dragon.
What do you think? Will we see and/or play through the origin story of Ariamis, and learn how the ill-fated town became a shell of what it once was? Will we learn more about Priscilla and her Peculiar Doll?
Let us know your theories in the comments below.
