Anor Londo, a massive abandoned city in the first Dark Souls, is a triumph of game design. As one of the most brutally-difficult levels in the game, players have to fight tooth and nail just to inch toward the warmth of a bonfire — and that's before going toe-to-toe with the hardest pair of bosses in the game.

For Souls players, Anor Londo is an icon: not only does it kick off the second half of the game, the city itself is unlike anything else seen in a Souls title.

It's abandoned, true, but it's also strangely beautiful — a far cry from the dilapidated churches and wretched bogs that make up the rest of Lordran.

Of course, as with any iconic gaming locale, it was only a matter of time before Anor Londo made its way to Minecraft. While there have been dozens of replicas made over the years, there's a good chance that the latest build from LNeoX is the best one yet:

If you couldn't tell from the pictures, LNeoX's take on Anor Londo is absolutely massive: the city takes up the entirety of a 1200 by 1200 block (aka ridiculously big). Everything, from the city's entrance to the spinning tower to Ornstein and Smough's massive chambers, have been recreated with a stunning level of detail — and it's not just Anor Londo, either. The surrounding forests have also been built up and detailed, despite the fact that players never enter the woods in the main game.

It's a build worthy of the gods themselves — and the best part is, you can play it yourself! Granted, it won't be quite as moody as the photos without a few graphical mods (which are easy enough to find), but you can download the entire Anor Londo map* straight from LNeoX's Planet Minecraft page.
