NAMCO BANDAI GAMES BRING DARK SOULS II TO THE EUROGAMER EXPO

UK, LONDON – September 20th, 2013 – Fans of the original Dark Souls have been eager ever since the announcement of Dark Souls II to get their hands on it and experience FROMSOFTWARE’S latest instalment in the franchise, so now, after all the waiting, they finally get their chance.

For those who are brave enough to take on the infamous Mirror Knight challenge, which will take place at the Namco Bandai Games booth, inevitable death will greet the losers and the winners will be rewarded in the shape of pride and prizes.

The rules are simple: Each player will have 20 minutes to find and take on the Mirror Knight.* The first person who manages to beat him, will not only become the pride of the whole Eurogamer Expo, they will also walk away with the following Dark Souls II Mirror Knight prize**:

·         Dark Souls II Black Armour Edition signed by FROMSOFTWARE

·         Guaranteed access to the Dark Souls II limited closed beta

·         A PlayStation ®3 signed by FROMSOFTWARE

·         A twelve month subscription to PlayStation Plus

·         Exclusive Dark Souls II T-shirt signed by FROMSOFTWARE

·         Exclusive Dark Souls II Poster signed by FROMSOFTWARE

·         Turtle Beach Ear Force PX22 Gaming Headset

Fret not, for not all is lost for the runner up. If you do manage to track down and slay the Mirror Knight, but have been pipped to the post by a fellow entrant, your efforts will be recognised in the form of:

·         Exclusive Dark Souls II T-shirt

Win or lose, we will also be giving away an A3 Dark Souls II poster to anyone that plays the game whilst stocks last.

Dark Souls II very own Warrior Knight will be there in person ! As he marauds around the Namco Bandai Games booth, the Warrior Knight promises to be as harrowing in real life as he is in the game. However, don’t let that prevent you from asking him for a chat – he’s always available for a photo ! Tweet @NamcoBandaiUK your best photo with the Warrior Knight including #EurogamerKnight

We will then select the best photos and announce the winners on Monday 30th September ! The best 3 entrants will win themselves some Namco Bandai Games goodies!

Not only that, Namco Bandai Games and GAME have teamed up to bring an exclusive, 4-days-only Dark Souls II , pre-order offer. For anyone that pre-orders a copy of Dark Souls II at the Eurogamer Expo, they will receive a limited Dark Souls II T-shirt. These T-shirts are extremely rare, so make sure you get yours before they disappear forever.

Both Black Armour Edition and Collector Edition will be available to pre order at the show – You can also see the Statue of the Knight that features in the fantastic collector edition at GAME’S stand.
