HOW to record Dark Souls III

Dark Souls III is a sequel to Dark Souls II but is the fourth entry in the ‘Souls’ series, which is famed for its punishing difficulty and has spawned its own ‘Souls -like’ genre.


It is an action role-playing game that focues on slow and tactical combat where the player has to learn enemy attach patterns and carefully choose when to launch their own attacks. Free exploration of the world lets players choose their own path but it is not unusual to stumble upon encounters that they are not yet ready to face. Players should be prepared to die… a lot.

The recording indicator will appear in the overlay. You are now recording!

When you want to stop recording, press the Start / Stop Recording hotkey again to save your video.

The overlay will swap to a ‘Saved‘ message for a few moments. As soon as it swaps back to the usual overlay, you are ready to record again.

Your saved video will appear in the Recordings tab. Select it from the recordings list on the left to watch it back.
