Bandai Namco announced the highly anticipated game Dark Souls III is officially set for April 12, 2016.

The video game publisher made the announcement in a new, fast-paced trailer titled "Darkness Has Spread," which showcases footage of the gameplay.

The game's developer From Software also released a new video that shows even more gameplay footage, including new areas and enemies. The video shows the player running toward a castle as he tries to dodge spears that are being thrown by some enemy off in the distance. Gamers also get a look at a new, open courtyard that includes trees that shape-shift into massive enemy for a boss fight.

The Day One Edition available in the U.S. will include Dark Souls III software, a starter guide, an official soundtrack and exclusive O-Sleeve packaging, the flexible case that is open on both ends.
