Our resident Dark Souls guy has been combing through the Elden Ring trailer and he's found several references to Fromsoftware's Dark Souls games.
Its basically a Dark Souls game anyway.
Which means it’s gonna be great!
This game could easily be just Dark Souls 4 and no one would argue otherwise. I'm gonna get the game and play it to death probably, don't get me wrong, but at this point I don't see any reason why this has to be a new IP. This has Dark Souls written all over it in every possible way, and the trailer only reinforced that.
It needed a new story. The flame being reignited has been done enough.
Its a new IP because its going to have a diferent lore and Gameplay systems than those of the Souls games!Its pretty obvious from what i have watch that Elden Ring its not Dark Souls or Demon Souls equal!
[email protected] Lore reasons I can understand, but so far I haven't seen anything in terms of gameplay that could not be in Dark Souls. Open world alone does not mean it could not be Dark Souls. Just look how they went from interconnected world to separate level design from DS to DS2. But I guess we'll have to wait and see how much differentiates itself in the end. Can't wait to play it.
Im surprised at the lack of articles on this site for Elden Ring. This won the most anticipated game normally there would be a lot more coverage.
