With a couple of days to go before Dark Souls 3 is launched in Japan, Bandai Namco releases the full list of achievements and trophies for its upcoming action RPG.
With just a couple of days to go before Dark Souls 3 is launched in Japan, publisher Bandai Namco has revealed the entire list of achievements and trophies for the game. While a number of gameplay previews have been released for the game, no one is entirely sure just how big Dark Souls 3 actually is. But based on the the size of Dark Souls 3's achievement list – which can be found at the end of this article – it appears that gamers may be sinking quite a few hours into From Software's upcoming action-RPG.
At 43 achievements or trophies, it seems that Dark Souls 3 is yet another massive entry into the Dark Souls franchise. Given that the gigantic Tom Clancy's The Division featured 51 achievements, it's fair to say that Dark Souls 3 will feature plenty of content for players to get through.
Not only does Dark Souls 3's achievement list give gamers some idea on the game's size, the list also reveals lot of information regarding bosses, Covenants, and quest locations. Some of Dark Souls 3's achievements contains spoilers, so those who are aiming to be the next Ashen One may want to be careful when going through the achievements list.
In addition to what is shaping up to be a massive game, it appears that there is going to be a considerable amount of post-launch content for Dark Souls 3. It'll be interesting to see how this post-launch DLC will be incorporated into the game, given that Dark Souls 3 is intended to be the concluding chapter in the Dark Souls trilogy, and altering the game's conclusion retroactively may not go down well with fans.
But since it's a bit early to be thinking about any DLC, gamers should be focusing on how to tackle the challenges that lay ahead in Dark Souls 3. With a total of 17 achievements dedicated to boss battles alone, it appears that the title will not be for the faint of heart. Of course, there's a special edition Dark Souls 3 strategy guide available for those unable to handle the game's difficulty, but where's the fun in that?
For those who want the entire list of possible achievements in the game, check it out below. Once again, the list contains many spoilers on bosses and Covenants, so fans that want to keep things a surprise may want to skip this next part.
