Dark Souls 2

Dark Souls II Shield Design Contest

There is a lot of hype around From Software’s third title in the Souls series, Dark Souls II, and more is coming to keep the flame burning.

In case you are not aware, From Software had held a contest for those fans of the Soul series with artistic talents, in which three fan-designed shields will become equip-able items in Dark Souls II.

With many entries being submitted prior to the May 14, 2013 deadline, From Software had a lot of work to do on their quest to pick the best design.  However, as of today, the contest is now one step closer to completion, with From Software revealing the top 30 shield designs on their Dark Souls II Facebook page, after they apparently dealt with a couple of cheaters.

Here are some of the great works that you might see in From Software’s new title.
