Hot New Dark Souls Screens Show Its 'Clothing Optional' Class

This year's Gamescom brings something new from Dark Souls, the dark role-playing game from From Software and Namco Bandai. Not only do we get a closer look at some character creation—the faces are still horrifying—but many of the game's default character classes.

If you're a Dark Souls/Demon's Souls fan, you've likely seen the semi-sequel's new Pyromancer and Knight. What about the game's Deprived, the class that fights hellspawn bravely with little more than a loincloth and plank shield? What about its still awkward-looking facial customization and player stats? That's all here in the latest batch of Dark Souls media.

Go for a gallery tour of the latest Dark Souls screens above, showing off some lovely looking outdoor environments, plenty of things on fire and some nearly-naked demon slayers. Kotaku will have more from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game soon from Gamescom.
