Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel, the first expansion to developer From Software's action role-playing game, is brutal. No big surprise there. There are surprises, though, and Polygon's Dark Souls 3: Ashes of Ariandel guide will help you deal with them all.
We've split our guide into two broad sections. Our walkthrough will help you on your journey from the first steps you take through the last boss battle. Our other guides will teach about and tell you where to find every weapon, strap on every piece of armor and gather every miracle, pyromancy and sorcery in the downloadable content.
