Rejoice, Souls fans, for we have received our first taste of Dark Souls 3 gameplay earlier this morning, during Microsoft’s conference at Gamescom 2015.

From Software said we’ll see some changes to the series’ gameplay in this new entry, including “sword arts,” which will allegedly change the feel of the combat. A spinning sword attack can be seen in the video.

The trailer, which shows a variety of locales and nightmarish creatures, can be seen below.

Dark Souls 3 is currently scheduled to release during early 2016 for PS4 and XBox One, with a PC release coming at an unannounced, later date.
