Is It Time For FromSoftware To Move Beyond The Souls Formula?

Danish from eXputer: "With FromSoftware getting new directors, it might be time for the studio to take a break from its iconic Soulslike games."

That's what I was going to say. Also they good at souls and they usually different in away then each other. The real thing to say is when the industry going to move from souls formula. I see almost every week theres a new souls games announced this week was bleak faith

Totally disagree. There are not enough souls likes, and good ones at that! Rarely are they announced… Bleak Faith for example is an old game. I literally bought and beat that game about a year ago. It’s rouguelites and metroidvanias that are announced weekly.

This a lot of souls games out as I said they are announced about every week. Matter fact I just heard about another moments of writing this.

They make Armored Core like once in a blue moon.

Honestly I want more lol. Plenty of different settings, time periods, fantasies, and myths they can still use.

Agreed stick with what they do best just get creative with it. Who wouldn't want another game like Elden Ring but in a fresh setting.

Armored Core and Elden Ring are both different than the Souls formula.

Souls formula: You Will Die. Gothic. Not open world. Punishing difficulty. The feeling that doing is completely on the player.

From software can make as many souls games they want. It's the rest of the industry that needs to stop copying them.

There are have been great souls-like games from other developers. I say if another developer can put their own spin on the genre then I don't see the problem. I don't get the whole defensive gatekeeping. Nioh, Lies of P and Remanent are great games in that genre.

Ambitious dream but sorry you don't make good RPGs. Just online co-op shooters.
