Fans of Dark Souls rejoice! Bandai Namco has announced the first of two planned DLC expansions for Dark Souls III by releasing an announcement trailer for Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel.

Players will find themselves immersed in a brand-new environment filled with new enemies, challenges and lore—as well as new weapons, armor sets and magic—as they return the world of Dark Souls III, where they’ll have to uncover a terrible secret hidden within the frozen land of Ariandel. They will be tasked with entering Ariandel and defeating the evil within in order to discover why the land has become defiled.

Available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC through Steam, the game will also boast some new features for the video game’s super popular competitive multiplayer mode.

Here’s what Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for Bandai Namco Entertainment America, said about the upcoming expansion:

“Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel continues FromSoftware’s track record of providing best-in-class post game downloadable content support, with hours of new challenges, new bosses, new mysterious locations to explore, new items to obtain, and new ways to challenge other players online, it’s the perfect time to jump back into one of the best games of 2016.”

Here’s an official description:

Ashen Ones… Enter this new world covered by snow and defeat the evil that has defiled this land. Grab ahold of the new armor sets, weapons, and magic that are available in Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel to aid you in discovering the new location. For the veterans of Dark Souls PVP, explore the new features and test your meddle with your fellow players.
