Dramatic Playlist: Cover Arts & Story Opening

World's… …End
Epic "No path of retreatDefeat is not an optionSeize—your weapon"―Demfire Creation

The story is about the tragic death of a Hero, that failed to defeat the Blade of Miquella.

The first 13 songs of the playlist are currently set in stone, as they are all part of the opening story. The Hero fails on track 05 (Malenia), continues fighting on track 06 while getting slowly consumed by the rot and finally dies on track 07. Then, it's his post-death tale until track 13.

The name of the songs are also very explicit, you can follow the story by reading them, this is 06 to 13: Gladiators Will to Fight... Brave Warrior... An Unfinished Life... Honor Him... Into the Light... Aqua Vitae... The Fates... Undying love...

Following this part, is the start of a war.
