Dark Souls II was released in March 2014 and now Nexus Mods has a mod like DS2Lightingengine SOFTS available. The mod in question puts the game’s graphics in a new light. More specifically, the lighting will be changed, and judging by the pictures, the impact will be huge.
There is also the so-called volumetric fog, and judging by everything, the modder is still not satisfied. This is just an alpha version.
