Dark Souls 3 Guide: How to Get Each Ending

As gamers have come to expect from the Dark Souls series, Dark Souls 3 has multiple endings on offer that unlock after fans follow a specific number of steps. Some of these endings are much rarer than others, however, and for those adventurers looking for the best possible conclusion a guide is likely necessary. Here, below, Game Rant details each of the possible endings in Dark Souls 3 and how to obtain them. Although it likely goes without saying, there are huge spoilers after this paragraph – gamers who want to preserve their experience with the Dark Souls 3 story beware.

This ending is the vanilla conclusion to the Dark Souls 3 story, and is thus the easiest one to unlock. All players need to do to get To Link the First Flame as an ending is to reach the Soul of Cinder, Dark Souls 3‘s final boss. Beating the Soul of Cinder and interacting with the bonfire that appears near the edge of the boss area after he dies is enough to trigger the ending cutscene.

Ending 2 has a cooler name, so obviously it’s going to be a bit more difficult to get. To trigger this ending, gamers need to do a bit of pre-planning prior to the game’s final boss fight: they’ll need to obtain an item called the Eyes of a Firekeeper. Here’s how:

It is possible to trigger an alternate, much more violent version of the Usurping the Fire ending. Complete all the steps listed above, but instead of doing nothing after summoning the Firekeeper after defeating the Soul of Cinder, kill her. After the initial ending cutscene there is a small window of time where players can attack the Firekeeper as the fire begins to fade from her hands. It might seem a little underhanded, so gamers could always attempt to kill the Firekeeper with just their fists to lighten the mood before her death triggers the alternate version of Usurping the Fire.

The Lord of Hollows ending is about as good an ending as one can expect when playing through a game as unforgiving and bleak as Dark Souls 3. Because of that, however, From Software isn’t going to make it easy for Dark Souls 3 players. Here are the many steps necessary to unlock what many fans believe to be the best ending in Dark Souls 3.

While many players won’t necessarily make it to the end of the game at all, those who do might be disappointed with the initial ending. Following these guides will help improve the experience of Dark Souls 3, a game that’s already the same kind of brutal success its predecessors were.

Dark Souls 3 is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
