Design a Shield for Dark Souls

Part of me thinks that a flimsy piece of metal will protect you from the eldritch horrors that will tear you limb-from-limb in Dark Souls. I could be wrong, especially if said piece of metal carried a bitchin’ design.

FromSoftware is holding a shield design contest on their Facebook page. Fans can submit designs from three templates, with the best of the best being featured in the games.

The contest will take place between June 27th and July 28th, giving you a full month to brush up on your heraldry.

The ten entries that are voted highest by the community will net their designers a signed copy of Dark Souls.

The real winners will be chosen by the design staff at From, one from each template, and put into the game. Those real winning designers will get their names in the credits, and receive a signed Limited Edition copy of the game.

You can check out the contest details on FromSoftware’s Facebook page. Dark Souls will hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 4.
