Players will travel to the frozen land of Ariandel where they will uncover the mystery of what destroyed this land.

Dark Souls III is an action role-playing game set in a third-person perspective. According to director Hidetaka Miyazaki, the game's gameplay design "follows closely from Dark Souls II". Players are equipped with a variety of weapons including shortbows, explosives like fire bombs, greatswords and dual-wielding swords to fight against enemies, and shields that can be used to deflect an enemies' attack and protect the player from suffering damage. In addition, attacks can be evaded through dodge-rolling. Bonfires, which serve as checkpoints, also return from previous installments.

Ashes, according to Miyazaki, will play an important role in the game. Magic is also featured in the game. Each attack has two different styles. One of them is standard attack, while another provides power-ups to players, and is slightly more powerful. When performing miracles and spells, the players' magic points are consumed and decreased. In order to refilled these points, they need to consume Ash Estus Flask. There are two different Estus Flasks in the game. One of them can help refill magic points, while another refill hit points. Combat and movements were made faster and more fluid in Dark Souls III. Several players' movements, such as backstepping and swinging heavy weapons, can be performed more rapidly, allowing players to deal more damage in a short period of time.

Throughout the game, players encounter different types of enemies, each with different behaviors. Some of them change their combat pattern during battles. New combat features are introduced in Dark Souls III, including "Ready Stance", which are special abilities for players that allow them to deal much more damage to enemies than ordinary attacks are capable of. Small gravestones are also introduced. These gravestones light up when interacted with and not only serve as players' torches, but also provide additional lore to the game.

The game puts more focus on role-playing, in which the character builder is expanded and weapons are improved to provide more tactical options to players. The game features fewer maps than its predecessor Dark Souls II, but levels were interconnected and were made larger, which encourages exploration. The agility stat from Dark Souls II was removed from Dark Souls III. The game also features multiplayer elements, like the previous games in the series.

Juan Seb

i always knew the way of white were responsible for covid-19


Dark Fire Orb spam destroys those Millwood knights. They just stagger and you keep going.

Brandon Westbrook

DaRK SouLs “I’m not even mad” edition. When that Millwood flipped you, flailing,off the ledge, I laughed my balls off

Always Aw3s0m3



10:04 that's exactly what happened to me, but in the area where you find the millwood shield and axe. I was like 0.o seriously?!

Akira Kamisaru

@10:06 "Holy Shit, I'm Not Even Mad That Was Amazing!!"

Best Line Ever Cowboy!!! XD


Cowboy fail streak at 6:48 lol. Im just messing with you cowboy, youre my favorite dark souls streamer by far


8:30 That was hilarious!

the_dark_ lantern

Cow: Rawwwwwwwwwww!!!
I love that

z NightOwl z

Why don’t any of the spirits summon for me!? Literally none of them spawn except longfinger and that girl after champion Grundyr. That’s it. No others invaded me


Can any one help me to finish the game

Lord Zuko

I lost 1m souls trying to get to the parting flame.

James Witherow

Cowboy, you just mentioned The Area We Do Not Name. In all seriousness though, I really hated that area on my pyromancer.

Anal Fissures

Ur not even mad a lot

Ismael Aguilar

Are there pre requirements to fight the pyromancer? I just got there and he wasn’t there. I fought sister frede first and then the wolf boss

Fagballs McGuilicuddy

The Millwood Knight Helm and Boots, combined with the Mirrah Chain Armor and Gloves make a very mean Robert Baratheon cosplay if that's your thing. Combine it with a Great Mace, Great Wooden Hammer, or Ledo's Great Hammer for maximum Baratheon madlad.


what weapon are you using?

Star Knight

I was wondering what was supposed to be in dat ice arena, I was not ember upped


at the earthshaker axe part, use bow or something to snipe the one who make the earth shake. If you can finish him, it's great, if you cant, just jump down and fight. Dont afraid of the other 2, they are blind and deaf, so just stay out of their range and you can 1vs1 with the big axe guy.


Still awesome

[FTE] Monolyth

Did anyone else not get the souls a 15:00? I got somthing different




woof woof woof woof

Christian C

10.10 ahahahahahahahaha OOMG!

Jack Robb

It is wild seeing Cowboy use a greatsword that isn't FUGS in the walkthrough videos. Mind you he picked a fun one.


How do you get 5 casts of great chaos fire orb per ashen estus flask?

If it can crawl it can brawl

18:36 I cant move the lever, it just says "Contraption Does Not Move" how do you fix that?

Austin Rowell

"Im not even mad" is the most appropriate/adult way to express how pissed you really are and how bad you wanna lunge that controller into your tv

Food Guru 69

10:04 wrecked


Your fashion makes me cringe....

Mslovelyshot Mrs. Dawn

I'm missing where the very first bonfire here is located...

Matt Mac

The pyro wasnt there for me

James Witherow

I was about to mention the Silvercat Ring, but you beat me to it Cowboy.

Xavier Osorio

you miss the valorheart against the guy and the big wolf guy fight


How did you open the path to the frieda boss

Joseph Chung

22:58You may be the first person in history to be hit by a Crystal Lizard.Not only did it juke you it fucking goomba stomped you then dipped

Timothy Phoenix

You skipped the best line in the game "As ashes will be, ever seeking fire"

Neion Tab

Finally a vid that shows what to do with those creatures that cause blood loss. I could not figure out there was a wheel to turn lol

Dr G

"Anyways, grab his hammer."


cowboy should 1 hand the onyx blade, it's way faster

The Ninjamaster987123

16:17 Yes you can parry the axe. Its the same with Lothric knights. You cant parry it when a player is using it, but you can parry the NPCs. But I dont reccomend it unless your good at parrying, but it hurts a lot.

The Bees Ankle

The pyromancer wasnt just mad he was livid

The Pixel Magus

Big help, I was stuck trying to figure out what to do in those woods.


Bruh you take so long to get to the point

The Average Game Play Channel

Chris Peloso

German Blackwolfgh

Jesse Matheus

Jonah Chiarle

Where the fuck is the lever

Simon Buffalo bull tail

At the beginning where do you get the blade?

Tim Prater

I love it when u say "I'm not even mad" lol I play this game pissed the entire time bahahahahaha

Invader Of Darkness

Gravity is the third boss of this dlc.


I just bought this dlc. I watched these videos after to see what I missed. Somehow I did it completely backwards


This area was a lot easier for me using the bow. It's slow but you can pick off a lot of the followers from ledges and stuff. That way you don't get swamped.

Lalitendu Das

Way of white 'corona'... Yes


Thank you very much for help,good job and keep up the good work ! Cheers and Peace !

Waniya Jalal

loses his shit and then says im not evvveeennnn maaaddddddd

satyam suman

I would say those milwood warrior really give me a hard time but after hitting them with rapport it's quite easy to take them down.

Scott Alexander

9:50 to 10:07 OMG Thor is that you?

Jacob Mitchell

So long ago, but u can parry the axe dude

Kieran Stevenson

I use the s heald of want it's to op


I think they might have changed the items down below where you fight the millwood knights there aren’t champion souls anymore


average run of the millwood XD

Maradri03 Gaming

Do you need to do this for the boss fight?


suicide wolf band names are on point!


White Corona was originated from Dark Souls not china

Nicholas Grispino

Earth Seeker is actually an extremely effective weapon when fully upgraded, and it's earthquake effect send enemies around you flying. Don't know why Cowboy neglected it.

Your Uncle John

I'm seriously disappointed on how short this DLC was.

Deepak Kumar

this character reminds me of katakuri.

Right Hand

The main thing I hate about dark souls is when they put this stupid platforming shit in it. It is so unnecessary

J.P Lovecraft

"Im not even mad"

The New Seorarek

Extremely helpful walkthrough, i couldnt for the life of me figure out how to get through the dlc until i watched these vids


What if you kill the Friede NPC in the chapel?


Me fighting him: ROLL ROLL, he fell of I win.

Leedle Leedle Lee

In case you didnt know, ariandel was painted over ariamis, so thats why theres peices of ariamis in there


So the story behind the Painted world is that Frieda, Vilhelm, and the father did not want fire in their world or they feared it. So they buried all of the Undead beneath the church and removed the bell from the tower. When we fought Vilhelm it was because we were getting too close to the answer and when we turned on the contraption that cutscened to Frieda in the church, it was because we'd uncovered their secret and they needed to be rid of us lest fire come back to the world.

Steve Chaffin

I didnt know you could kick the trees over SMH

Israel Valdez

I know that this video is over a few years old, but I wanted to ask you questions about builds? I mostly use a strength build but I wanted to try a pyro build and I wanted to know if it would be a difficult to too transition between the builds? Any advice would be cool, thanks!

Josh Woods

there is so many enemies around this area lol

Jayden Peterson

Why didn't I get invaded?


How the hell have you buffed your weapon tried everything to fucking figure it out.

George Washington


Jonah Poole

Alex Mane

Marco De Stefano

Tactical Spice

I dropped down to where the two champion souls and one great champion soul are and killed the Millwood Knights and forgot to grab the souls and then I looped around towards the second shortcut and walked on the path that breaks underneath you and and the enemies weren't there but the souls were and I'm so glad it happened

Nikita Rybalko

m b

Krystal Jones

Justin Viola
