FromSoftware and Bandai Namco are teaming up again for a new iteration in the Dark Souls universe. After countless titles in the soulsborne genre, Elden Ring is set to launch In just a few months. Yet, the series is still very much alive, with plenty of interest in its lore and story. So much so that a new addition to Dark Souls is finally being made. In 2016, a board game based on the Dark Souls universe was already well over 5 million dollars funded. Despite releasing to mixed and poor reception, the game made a decent attempt at being a part of the Dark Souls world. While limited, the Dark Souls board game laid the groundwork. Steamforged Games announced today that they plan to develop a new Dark Souls tabletop Role-Playing game.
