Fans are excitedly awaiting the arrival of "Dark Souls 3" very first DLC rightfully coined as "Ashes Of Ariandel."  The said "Dark Souls 3" expansion will reportedly take the players to a new location where they are given the chance to explore and reveal a planted secret that will totally change the gameplay.

The name of the new place to be explored by the players in "Dark Souls 3" is Ariandel and, although the game developers haven't really exposed what's behind the game expansion, players can expect new characters to meet and save as well as new villains to defeat.  The newest addition to "Dark Souls 3" will give players a refreshing new environment which can be quite difficult to navigate in at first because it is reportedly way different than the previous game environment.
