Endings

Dark Souls III has three endings, one of which has an alternative variation. The endings are influenced by several choices the player makes throughout the playthrough, which are as follows:

  • Doing the Lord of Hollows Questline
  • Giving the Eyes of a Fire Keeper to the Fire Keeper in Firelink Shrine (Note that if the player changes their mind, killing the Firekeeper respawns her without the eyes, reverting her back to normal)
  • Answering to the Fire Keeper's question whether the player wishes for an Age of Dark or not

Notes

  • If the Fire Keeper has the eyes, she can be summoned for the Dark ending
  • Killing the Fire Keeper after she has spoken with the flame in her hands triggers an alternative ending
