The developer of the epic game is “FROM SOFTWARE” while the publisher is Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is Bandai Namco fastest-selling game, selling over three million copies within three months after release. The game was released to PlayStation 4, Xbox and Microsoft Windows in 2016 but the thriller was released in 2015 on E3. The game is an action role-playing video game, and it is the fourth in the entry of the Souls series.
The plot of the game shows the irresponsibility of a Prince Lothic of the Kingdom of Lothric who was a chosen Linker but fails to rekindle the First Flame but rather choose to watch the flame die from afar. Failure to rekindle the First Flame result in coming of the Age of Dark which produces the Undead: Cursed beings that rise up after death.
The First Flame which signals The Age of Fire has been rekindled aforetime by the souls of great Lords and heroes. The last hope for the Age of Fire is the bell which resurrects the previous Lord of Cinder (Heroes who linked the fire in the past). When the bell rang, one Lord fails to do His duty while others did.
The Player (The Ashen one) needs to succeed in returning Lothric and the Lords of Cinder to their thrones, they travel to the ruins of the Kiln of the First Flame. After which, they encounter Soul of Cinder: An amalgamation of all the Lords of Cinder who had linked the flame, this Soul must be defeated.
When the Soul of Cinder has been defeated, there are four endings depending on the actions taken by the player. One ending involves linking the fire, another one is asking the Fire Keeper to extinguish the flame to begin an Age of Dark. The fourth is the Ashen One taking the flame for their own and becoming the Dark Lord of Londor.
Some other interesting part of the play is the Ashes of Ariandel where Ashen One encounter various challenges, and also The Ringed City is one other interesting Part of play. One exciting feature is the online multiplayer mode aside its offline single playing mode.
