As a fan of the Dark Souls series, hearing that Elden Ring is going to be much longer warms my hollowed heart. Here's why I'm happy about the news.
Same here. Can’t wait
Glad there are finally devs taking cues from Celtic/Gaelic mythology too. Seen enough Greek, Egyptian, and Norse to last a lifetime in recent games.
Dark souls is my favorite game of all time, and the one I've played the most... Still I think the game is a bit too long. It would have been perfect till Laurel and Fatso (maybe Tomb of the giants and New londo but thats it) You don't need a game to be super long to be a master piece, it should be long enough to tell the story it wants to tell and the experience it wants to share
I do agree that we could definitely do without another rushed mess like Izalith. But more Souls gameplay is generally a good thing!
Sure, but how many "longer" games are just empty areas of fluff to add space/time? Im excited as hell for Elden Ring as a souls fanatic - but bigger doesn't always mean better
I thought they said it was 30 hours for main story. Isn’t that pretty much like all souls games? Not hating I’m a huge fan, but I thought 30 was pretty standard.
Are souls games short? I've played and finished bloodborne and demon souls and they weren't short, just about right I'd say.
The trailer looked nice but it looks just like another Souls entry.
Honestly, if it had been anything else I would have been terribly disappointed. That is exactly what I expected and wanted!!! If it had been Dark Souls 4 instead of Elden Ring, I might have been even more excited, but probably about the same. I get that there are a lot of people who don't like Soulslike games and want them to move on to something else. I'm just not one of those people. Keep making Souls-likes and as long as I have money I will buy it and cherish it.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess I'm at least as hyped as most here for this game. However, game length alone cannot determine quality. That said, I'm glad too, lol. Not because it will affect the quality, but because I'll take as much From software gameplay as I can get. There have been some really amazing games that were not as great as they should have been, because of filler gameplay, but I do kinda doubt Elden Ring will have any filler. The developer is just too good.
