It is not the first time that Steamforged has dared to investigate the world of Dark Souls. In 2016, and after having raised more than $ 5 million on Kickstarter, they launched the Dark Souls: The Board Game and they also did the same with Dark Souls: The Card Game. We will have to wait to see what they offer us with this tabletop RPG. Meanwhile, fans have celebrated the 10-year history of one of the most influential games in the industry.
