Game news 10 years after the release of Dark Souls, they find a hidden message in a place no one expected
Long before Elden Ring, players fell in love with Dark Souls – its unforgiving difficulty and gorgeous world… a love that is still felt today with new discoveries.
When video game fans “really” love something, they have a reputation for not giving up easily. For many years, fans of GTA 5, for example, have done everything in their power to uncover the secret of “Mount Chiliad” (which has proven to be endless with the longevity of GTA Online). A title that recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. This is two years younger than Dark Souls, another video game that still blows a lot of people's brains. Recently, a well-known whistleblower in the FromSoftware community made a nice discovery: Two messages left by the developers.
Back to basics
Since 2013 – two years after the action-RPG's release – enthusiasts have known all the messages left by the Dark Souls developers! Words that, like the players' words, take the form of glowing patterns on the ground that are generally intended to aid the adventurer (particularly at the beginning of the title). However, using the Seek Guidance spell, it is possible to reveal other messages, this time hidden. And ten years ago, there were two missing: “Try the light” (try light) and “Try the éclairs” (Try lightning). Well… “Missing” from now on.
In a video clip published on December 12, the famous Sherlock Holmes from the game Dark Souls appeared, The imaginary wallFinally, I found the trail of the missing letters. And not in any version of the title: on the “vanilla” version – that is, the version that was marketed at the time without the slightest update (the words were later replaced or erased, no doubt). It turns out that the first aid “try the light” was written At the beginning of the Giant's TombAn area you can't see 2 meters away without something illuminating you. Finally, the “Try the Lightning” tip was left just before the boss, allowing access to this level – “Pinwheel”. Another puzzle solved by Illusory Wall.
