No, it's not the Master from Hands of Fate. This is Manus, not Manos. He's the Father of the Abyss, and he's a new expansion that's available to pre-order now for Dark Souls: The Board Game. Steamforged is stretching out from content they had from their Kickstarter, so you'll want to give it a look.
From the website:
Prepare to die in this brand new expansion for Dark Souls™: The Board Game, never before available on Kickstarter.
We first met Manus in the iconic final encounter from the Artorias of the Abyss video game expansion. Now, this terrifying mega boss will cast his shadow over your tabletop.
Yes—the Father of the Abyss has finally come to the board game!
Afraid? Your fears are well-founded. Inside this brand new expansion, you’ll find a gigantic mega boss miniature to fight, a mega boss tile to travel, deadly new boss behaviours to learn, a new battle mechanic to master, and—if you succeed—unique new boss treasures to plunder.
This expansion also adds new encounter cards which plunge you into larger battles than ever before, introducing a whole new level of peril. Are you up to the challenge?
