First Player-vs-Player Details of Dark Souls 2 Surface

One of the biggest elements of Dark Souls—beyond its survival horror-esque foray into deep and dangerous dungeons—is its player-vs-player combat, which sees other players invading your realm to make life hell for you. Granted, the invasion system also allows players to cooperate with one another, but it's mostly there for the ganking.

Today, a new video has surfaced showcasing a very small, tiny portion of the PvP mode in From Software's upcoming game, Dark Souls 2.

There's not much to go on besides the annotations in the clip, which attempt to elaborate on what we're seeing on screen.

Watch it above and tell us what you think.
