If The Ringed City really is the last time we’ll see any new Dark Souls content for the foreseeable future, players can rest assured that their final endeavor will be a worthwhile one. Though at times it can feel even more punishing than the main game, the thoughtful level design, fun boss battles, and a more horror-inspired tone make The Ringed City a worthy add-on and will give any Dark Souls 3 fan a reason to jump back into the madness.
When I finished The Ringed City’s critical path, I was left with pangs of sadness and some mild disappointment. While it was still able to surprise me and leave me in awe with its level design and enemy encounters, I couldn’t help but feel like the game wanted me to get through it as quickly as possible until I ran into walls with the Bosses. Dark Souls is over (for now) and I just wish it could have maintained its high bar throughout.
With some notable flaws and lack of originality, the Ringed City is a bit of a mix bag. Even so, the new areas are fun enough to explore, and the epic final encounter is something that absolutely needs to be experienced by anyone that calls themselves a Souls fan. It’s unclear if this truly marks the end of Souls as a series, but if it is, it can rest well knowing it has left an indelible mark in gaming that will never be forgotten.
