A group of Dark Souls modders are working on a new " giant "project intended to act as a "direct sequel " to the original game. In a blog post , famous modder Scott 'Grimrukh ' Mooney introducedDark Souls: Nightfall.
Grimrukh, responsible for Dark Souls' acclaimed Daughters of Ash mod, has been working on Nightfall with a number of other modders since last year. In their blog post, they say the project is a "direct sequel to Dark Souls " that extends its lore without clashing with the base game.
Beyond the narrative implications, it looks like Nightfall is a big business. Grimrukh claims there will be a new world map made from reorganized assets, a "heavily modified and faster combat system" against enemies whose attack animations have been "heavily modified", and a new voice game The NPCs.
All of this makes for a mod that is "bigger and more ambitious" than Grimrukh's latest project. That says a lot, because Daughters ofAsh took two years and 1,000 hours of development. Granted, it was the work of one person - Grimrukh worked on it on his own throughout 2017 and 2018 - but given the reach of Nightfall, it might be several years before 'a final version of the mod is born. Sadly, it also looks like we won't be able to see much of the mod until it's released, as beyond the information being shared today, Grimrukh implies that they will remain rather silent.
While we wait for Nightfall (and Elden Ring ) , chec Check out other games like Dark Souls to scratch that FromSoftware itch.
