Dark Souls Cosplay Costumes of 2020
What is Dark Souls?
Dark Souls series has a common goal of maintaining the Age of Fire, which requires linking the flame by sacrificing a soul. In the first game, it was explained that dragons once ruled the world. Four individuals acquired powers from Lord Souls near the primordial First Flame. Three of them sought to defeat the dragons and rule the world. The fourth one was eventually forgotten, and the Age of Fire eventually began afterwards.
Meanwhile, humanity was plagued with an undead curse, and those who received it were bound to resurrect every time they die. In all three games, the player controls a character afflicted with the curse, and they either choose to link the flame and stop the Age of Fire from ending, or let the fire burn out to allow the Age of Dark to begin.
How to look like the Characters from Dark Souls?
Most equipment and weapons suggest that the game is influenced by the medieval period. Some NPCs appear to be wearing armor pieces similar to crusaders, while most of the equipment available to the player look similar to cuirass armor. The player also wields weapons ranging from a sword and shield, spear, and a mace, which are common weapons in a high fantasy themed game.
Despite the reputation of possibly being the hardest game of all time, Dark Souls has quite an interesting story from the first game to the sequels. The grueling experience of trying to stay alive might have overshadowed the game’s lore, but the bosses and characters of Dark Souls are definitely one of the most recognizable characters of action role playing games.
