This is an optional boss in the game that is located in a hidden area. From where you fought Wolnir, go back to the rope bridge. Hit the ropes of the bridge to destroy it, then climb down to the side where the battle against Wolnir took place.

Over there you will find a bonfire and an area with large burning trees. the Old Demon King boss is behind this area.

The boss uses a large hammer. After you take away a third of his health he will start burning and using fire attacks. Always try to stay under him or behind him, his attacks are powerful but also very slow. If you are attacked between his legs many of his attacks will fail, when he charges one of these attacks he will be vulnerable for a few seconds, so take the opportunity to strike.

Meteors are his strongest attack, land a couple of hits while he loads the meteors and then immediately roll away as this inflicts massive damage.
