A large chunk of gameplay of Dark Souls III, showing soul magic and more.
Nice and some good laugh there :)
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa seriously I have killed someone
Even in character movements this looks like Bloodborne
Well that's not problem.
I had to turn off the volume. That idol was tremendous Looks a Lot like Bloodborne. Even the spear animation attack
He's a terrible player, too. Like overly spastic and timid. Couldn't finish watching the video.
The guy that was showing demo footage and explaining the new features for MGSV:TPP. He was really good and straight to the point. He needs to demo games for all the companies the same way.
Aaaaah, the quality of the video. It's hurting my eeeeeyes
From Software use to be a great dev but that hey become a one trick pony. What happened to all that talent for making amazing games that were varied. Enough Souls games bring back Otogi( i know it has a souls look sometimes....but it plays very different and has destructible enviroments)!!!!
I want a modern King's Field. But, these games are very solid and do provide a good amount of areas and additional content in each release. DS3 definitely has a huge improvement coming. I know they have released a bunch of these Souls games and BB. But, they have really had nothing but fantastic deliveries with each one. I don't think as long as they have proper inspiration for a new game and what to evolve that they should leave it. But, maybe just one new IP after DS3, maybe another BB, but hopefully another new and unique take on their style. I do think King's Field would be a great idea.
Yes looks definately like Bloodborne, with the character customisation and classes of the older souls games combined with Bloodborne's mechanics... Well that could be one awesome game
Glad they are focusing more on magic, it was quite bad in Bloodborne, there was practically no reason to pump points into arcane for the first two thirds of the game, unless you used the flamesprayer :D
I solely used magic in BB lol, equipped arcane or fire damage to my weapons, nonetheless I agree with the focus on magic. I love demon souls (mainly due to its focus on magic).
Until that one guy online that trained nothing but magic just to do the aoe attack.
@sinspirit I'm that guy, lmao.
Looks more Bloodborne than Dark Souls - even the Stone floor looks identical - Mayzaki had copied a lot from BB. Its somekind of sad seeing this. This footage could be completely from Bloodborne - also the Fighter looks like a Hunter lol
Loll I thought the same thing! The character looks like a bloodborne hunter! Even the assets and animation look very simular, im all for this game though
It's not like BB wasn't after the Souls games from the same studio. It has obvious similarities to Souls games. Just as this Souls game has similarities brought over from it. It looks more look Demons Souls with BB mixed in. Of course he has inspiration from BB. It did so many things right in a another direction with their previous ideas.
After playing BB over 260h and DS the same time - I can tell you it looks graphically more than BB than DS - Graphically ! The definitly used the same engine and some of the Objects from there.
So this is Bloodborne Souls then? Well, Bloodborne was really good. I can't imagine going back to the clunky low paced Gameplay of Dark Souls so in a sense, this is good, on the other hand is bad since they just used Bloodborne as their inspiration.
This franchise must end, there's just zero innovation now, basically copy-paste. Dark Souls 1 was my favourite game of all time, Dark Souls 2 was good but not great, Bloodborne was very good..........,but I just feel like this franchise has been declining ever since DS1.
I agree with you on DS2 as it lacked in quality compared to Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, but Bloodborne was amazing and Dark Souls 3 looks fantastic also. If DS is your all time favourite game surely you'd welcome a sequel that improves upon stuff like a pretty bad inventory system and up to date visuals. After all you can only play the same game a limited number of times before you go insane.
Sure, I did say Bloodborne was very good, although i didn't like how they did those chalice dungeons, felt cheap. Fact is there are no more 'wow' moments in souls games, they've exhausted pretty much everything - not saying its intentional, it's just hard to innovate after so many sequels. I'm a huge souls fan and I'm not even a little excited by DS3 cause I feel like I know what to expect........maybe it's just me.
I'll admit DS2 didn't hold me over like dark souls and demons souls did. Bloodborne was good but i didn't like the gun stun mechanic, dark souls 3 directed by ds1 and bloodborne director will surely be another gem.
If you played BB then no. This would not be copy paste. It's not even the same thing. It's not weapon transformation. It's a limited use dependent on mana/energy amount and not all weapons have it. A special. Not a transformation. Though SOME of them won't be taking a different stance but will transform the weapon for just that attack. This would be a similar idea but fit into the DS world. Not the same thing whatsoever. This one has a huge gameplay improvement. Different from DS and from BB. It has similarities to Demons Souls and BB. But, not the same as either one. I think this is going to burn the fire longer and that they will take a break from this series after possible DLC and explore another possible AAA title. They saved a lot of money they're not one trick ponies. They just finally hit the big time and have a lot of tricks for this series alone to lay the road for future investment. Every Souls game and BB have been released at very good timing that they couldn't pass up.
Bloodborne with shields. A half way decent player would've made it much further in 20 min. lol
We have Bloodborne to PC boys!!!!!!!!! mmmm that chick voice......
somehow bloodborne looks better than this
It's kind of stupid to compare such great games that do so many things right in different directions.
Looks amazing, can't wait till it comes out!!!
The first arch-type character looks like the Fluted Knight from Demon's Souls - love it!!
Looks good but the guy playing obviously isn't very good
People who think BB was groundbreaking & DS3 is a copy make me want to... Go play DS1 guys, see what a real game is.
