Minor spoilers for Dark Souls 3 follow below.

There’s a lot riding on this particular piece of Dark Souls DLC. Hidetaka Miyazaki, president of FromSoftware and creator of the esteemed Souls games, has hinted that Dark Souls 3 could be the last sequel we see from the series, at least for a long while. And as the latter of two additions to Dark Souls 3, The Ringed City could be viewed as something of a grand finale for a franchise that’s become an indelible touchstone for the action RPG genre. As if that weren’t enough pressure, it also has to earn back goodwill after the previous DLC, Ashes of Ariandel, left some players cold with its shorter playtime and largely linear progression. The Ringed City aims to fix all that, with an immense new realm that acts like a convergence of familiar worlds and an homage to Dark Souls’ storied past.
