"It is called Lothric, where the transitory lands of the Lords of Cinder converge."

How fascinating. Time and space are still in flux in Dark Souls 3 (opens in new tab), it would seem. We know Firelink Shrine appears (opens in new tab) in the third instalment, and I'll be damned if I haven't seen the ruined spires of Anor Londo crop up here and there, but this is confirmation that we're not in Lordran as we know it. Rather, Dark Souls 3 will sit betwixt planes of existence, or so the opening cinematic suggests, but it's a fool who takes Dark Souls footage at face value.

There's a brief peak at Lothric's big baddies too: Yhorm the Giant, Aldrich Saint of the Deep and Farron's Undead Legion. Excuse me while I spend all my souls in Faith.
