Prolly headed by DSII B-team.  :doge  Very curious though.  Of course, this probably going the Norse way, along with the next AssCrud and the inevitable GOW2, I'll be totally Norse'd out.  :-\

Chasing dat Skyrim & God of War money. Also the new AssCreed is also Norse :zzz

But if it is Souls-like then Day 0 and Platinum for me. Can't help it, won't fight it.

wow 3 mediocre casual games in the last 10 years used that setting, it's totally played out - hopefully they go back to dragon and hobbits trash that 90% of all western RPGs shit out.   :whatsthedeal :foodcourt

Literally anything would be better than going for GoT fantasy, except maybe Japanese high schools. But it seems to be a 4chan rumour anway, i.e. whatever.

It's like in 2015 where there were like 5 Victorian era games and people complained about it being a thing.

I'm good with the Norse stuff. A FROM/GRRM interpretation of the mythology can give us some fucked up shit.

GRRM?

Your main character dies after a long grind and you will have to play various side characters that all suck and also die.
The NPC that you meet at the start becomes king in the end.

Like can you name 3 RPGs in the last decade with Hobbits?

Bonus points for FROM SOFTWARE games.

wasn't meant literally, but replace it with any other trope from generic dd fantasy (i.e. the most trite setting ever) if you must. :idont

Based on mid-european middle ages = the closest you can get to being creatively bankrupt, regardless of whatever tweaks there are. Unless you are Kingdom Come, i.e. do the impossible and actually base it on history, not fantasy.

I wouldnít be surprised if itís 3 Dark Souls worlds linked by a central open hub and then within each kingdom itís the usual linear/non-linear stage design you see in all the Souls games.

A true open world just doesnít make any sense for From Soft.

From wasn't born with Demon's Souls, so they could stand to gain something, from trying to move away from the Souls formula again, tbh.

Sure, but From also made a lot of bad games before Souls. Their strength is in their level design and lately their combat.

Well I was thinking more like Eternal Ring and stuff haha, I never played KF but respect it. Also I think some of the Armored Core games are kinda of baaaaaaaad (some are great!).

Making this shit instead of a new armored core game

Should still be coming. They said they had 3 projects in development. 1 new souls-kind-but not (Sekiro), 1 souls-ish arpg (Elden) and 1 game that basically sounded like a new Armored Core.

Liking the art style of the trailer. Open world but no towns according to FROM. Apparently GRRM came up with the backstory and lore.

If you told some me 10 years ago that FROMSOFT and GRRM would collaborate on a game together, I'd actually believe it. But under the circumstances of GRRM being a popular author only within his niche and a C-list developer coming together to make something mediocre.

If you told me GRRM would become a megaceleb and FROM would turn into the premier single player game developer, I'd be more shocked tbh. Almost as shocked as Winds not being out by 2020  :doge

Miyazaki said that the story and world of Elden Ring will be fleshed out in a similar manner to that of the Dark Souls games. This means that much of the backstory of the world of Elden Ring will probably be detailed through item descriptions, character interactions, and other means of environmental storytelling.
Quote
FromSoftware is opting to return to its old way of fleshing out the world itís creating, even with Martin working on the project. Part of this reason is likely because Elden Ring will let you play as a customizable character that doesnít have a defined personality within the world. That said, Miyazaki has said that NPCs in Elden Ring will be a bit more fleshed out compared to some of his past titles.

Uh, I don't understand how that is "going back to Souls roots"

Sekiro's story is mostly through item descriptions and stuff. All their games are. Dunno why anyone would expect this to be any different. Elden Ring just sounds like Reboot Dark Souls tbh.

Maybe there's more dialogue (is there? There wasn't much...), but I had no fucking idea what was going in Sekiro until I read/watched the story guides that were assembled from item descriptions, same as Bloodborne/Souls.

That's because storytelling in Sekiro is dreadfully paced.

Instead of being spread throughout, it's at a few intervals (usually after a major boss fight) and all together; on top of that, 60% of it is expository jargon about the tears of the dragon or the flower's scent.
It's just utterly boring, tbh, so it hardly keeps your attention.

Honestly, after a while i just started skipping that shit hard.

Dark Souls was similar with the info dump, but it was more spread out, so you didn't have to sit through 40 lines of dialogue all at once, and then nothing for another 5 hours.

To be honest I never have any idea what is happening in a From Software game or Yoko Taro game until I beat the game and read a plot summary.

The main plot of Sekiro was OK and very simple. The themes about the futility of mortals trying to achieve immortality was pretty well executed imo.

What I liked about it is that the main NPCs were actual characters this time instead of some cryptic abstractions that cackled after every sentence. Obviously I'm generalizing a lot, but thats like most of the characters I remember interacting with post Dark Souls 1. In Bloodborne they fit pretty well thematically.

I found the trio of Emma, Isshin and the Sculptor pretty cool. Kuro was OK, and his interactions with Wolf were cute. In fact, I think the Sculptor's story is definitely one of the more poignant ones FROM has come up with.

I'm guessing we'll get some fucked up NPCs for this one, hopefully with some nice arcs.

I can't imagine this coming this gen, but I could be totally wrong.  Being their first attempt at a game of such girth, I'm willing to bet it'll still be well over a year from now.

 Neither do I tbh.  :lol  I think I'm falling in the same trap as I did with MGSV...  My hype and anticipation for it, it felt I would be doing the game, and myself a disservice of missing the game's full potential and glory  (Excluding PC of course.. different ballpark, imo)  Playing MGSV at 60fps vs PS3 30fps...  it just had to be done.
