The game features a whole new world with many weapons that are used to fight the monsters within the game. It has also been noted that you will be able to create a character!
Covenants, a feature in Dark Souls that allowed the player to align with different factions, are making a reappearance, though they will be easier to understand and more accessible to the player.
