The Souls series (ソウルシリーズ Sōru shirīzu) is a series of action role-playing video games created and developed by FromSoftware. The series began with the release of the PlayStation 3 video game Demon's Souls in 2009. Demon's Souls was followed by Dark Souls in 2011, and its sequels, Dark Souls II and Dark Souls III, in 2014 and 2016 respectively.
The Souls games are played in a third-person perspective, and focus on weapons- and magic-based combat with disfigured monsters, and exploration. Players battle bosses, interact with the strange non-playable characters, and journey through the medieval-like, interconnected environments in order to progress through the story. The series is particularly notable for its difficulty. More: en.wikipedia.org.
