New Dark Souls 2 gameplay details emerge - meet the Mirror K

What'd be interesting is that if you would appear from a shield on their screen, or if he just absorbs you into his shield for a battle with another player. Also, what would stop the second player turning round and starting to help you against the big guy?

My guess would be that they're part of a covenant sworn to serve the Mirror Knight (and thus get big rewards of souls and humanity/equivalent for beating you) or perhaps they'll be at the same point in the game and thus will have to beat you in order to proceed.

Invading players in Dark Souls couldn't attack enemies in the other players worlds so I assume this would be something similar

Presumably this means pulling a player roughly equivalent in level although I wonder what happens for players who either have no internet or no gold subscription. Would it just produce a randomly generated character? Or just a random monster? Or perhaps another Mirror Knight, which could then lead to theoretic infinite spawnings.

My guess is it would work in the same way as the E3 demo build and just spawn randomly generated shadows. I do love the thought of an infinite rabbit-hole of Mirror Knight clones though...

Why post a Star Trek YouTube vid? :?

I was hoping for footage of the Mirror Knight and I switched off my tracking protection for nothing, NOTHING! :lol:
