Video game masochists, steel yourselves for Dark Souls, the closest thing that you're going to get to a Demon's Souls sequel. A game that will come to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this October, according to this brand new trailer.

In addition to nailing down a release window for the fall, this new look at Dark Souls showcases the many ways in which we can die in From Software's next brutally difficult role-playing game. We can be crushed by rolling boulders, stomped upon by giant iron knights, burned alive by dragon breath and sliced to bits by swinging pendulum scythes. Looks fun!

We'll have more new details on Dark Souls very, very soon.
