Dark Souls 3 is too hot to keep in a cage.

Dark Souls 3 developer From Software recently hosted a livestream showing off some new footage of the hardcore RPG in action.

The stream was set to private, meaning many fans didn’t even know it was happening, but YouTuber Gilmore Mizzi made an archive of several minutes of thief gameplay. Amusingly, the video is a direct capture from YouTube, so it kicks off with a visible scrub bar at the bottom which may lead you to believe there’s two hours of it. Alas! This is not the case.

It’s in Japanese, but the minutiae of new gameplay tweaks under discussion have been translated and put in context by fans in both the video’s comments and this Reddit thread.

Dark Souls 3 launches in April for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
