Famitsutube has uploaded some fantastic Dark Souls II gameplay videos that show off the in-game dynamics between different class types such as the Warrior, Sorcerer, Temple Knight and Swordsman.

It's worth noting that according to these videos, backstab has been severely nerfed in Dark Souls II, which is a good thing as most PvP matches between players came down to an awkward looking face-to-face hoe down dance off, waiting for the other player to accidentally showing their back and thus causing them to be impaled for almost fatal amounts of damage via a backstab.

I'm also loving the dual wielding abilities in Dark Souls II. It was something that was introduced in Demon Souls, however it was never really fleshed out in the sequel, Dark Souls. Hopefully we'll see a lot more dual wield options in Dark Souls II!
