The Famitsu YouTube channel uploaded today four new gameplay videos from the upcoming Dark Souls II, developed by From Software. The videos show off four of the different classes available in the game set to be released for the PS3, 360 and PC next March. You can check out the videos below.
The Warrior seems to be the most balanced of the classes shown, doing damage with his bow before showing off some sword-and-shield gameplay.
The Sorcerer plays more evasively, preferring to utilize magic staves in between ducking enemy steel, but not afraid to go into melee combat with his dagger.
The Temple Knight wields both a short battle axe and a longer halberd, showing off a combination of short- and medium-range melee combat.
Finally, the Dual Swordsman forgoes the luxuries of a shield for, unsurprisingly enough, another sword for extra damage dealing. This leads to another, more evasive style of combat, but not without bouts of wailing on enemies with dual blades.
