Dark Souls 2 will be more straightforward, game directors say

Darks Souls 2, revealed last night at the Spike Video Game Awards, will be more approachable for players, Edge reports.

Speaking with the publication, game director Tomohiro Shibuya explained that Dark Souls 2 will differ in more ways than one from its predecessors.

"I am personally the sort of person who likes to be more direct than subtle," Shibuya said. "[Dark Souls 2] will be more straightforward and understandable."

Shibuya and Yui Tanimura replace former game director Hidetaka Miyazaki.

Dark Souls 2 will feature a new hero and storyline for players to explore. The game is being developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
