Hadn't seen much gameplay of this, it doesn't look as 'next gen' as I expected based on the released trailers but the battle systems look interesting.
I can't really tell how this game works in terms of story and progression though. Is it just raiding bandit campsTM and saving at bonfires?

It's a cross-gen game. What's next-gen even mean in this context?

From Software's strong points were never their graphical fidelity. It's more on their art design and attention to detail. The game seems to be cut into six huge zones which follow a sort of difficulty progression, but you're allowed to tackle it any way you want. Kinda sounds like Demon's Souls nexus transposed on an open world structure.

Folks getting ER on PC should maybe reconsider at first if this same online structure is being used...  :doge

FS has apparently shut down servers for DS1, 2 & 3.  Hope this doesn't delay ER any further..  Gotta do what they gotta do though.

DS3 online is actually pretty great, my favourite to duel in by far. I like it in all souls games, but feel punished for using it in Demon's Souls because of the way world tendency works, stupid piece of shit mechanic.

Wait, the PC version of this has been out in the wild with script-exploit capability for how long?

Turns out they'll be using the kernel-level Easy Anti-Cheat for PC and it's been said this predated the discovery of the server vulnerability. Real shame.

A lot of the major bosses and locations are out in the wild now. Glad I haven't had time to give that stuff any attention. I'm not even watching that overview trailer.

Can already tell this game will be something special, no reason to take the shine off this close to the finish line.

I stopped buying launch games from them.  Not because of the lack of pre-loading, but because you obviously can't refund something you got and redeemed whereas that's not a problem on Steam.

The reviews for the game seemingly killed both Metacritic and Opencritic. Last time Opencritic loaded for me it had 36 reviews with a 96% average score. 100% recommendation.

Edit: Metacritic has it at 98.

Edit 2: Guess I at least don't have to cancel my pre-order.

Sounds like all the experience and design that's been a part of every Souls game makes up Elden Ring as a whole. Sounds like it'll be a terrific game.

It sucks though performance impressions are all over the place for most platforms, but we'll see very soon if the day 1 patch fixes a lot of those issues.

Preordered and preloaded on Series X.  :-*

On Series X you also get VRR so if your tv supports that, it should take away most of the issue.

I got the PS5 version cause I prefer the L1/R1 button over the Xbox bumpers.

I'm in the middle of Watchdoges Legion, friends are telling me to get Cyberpunk 2077 now that it's fixed up and PS5 ready, and a half dozen people at my work are rabid to play this Elden Ring. Don't need to throw US$70 or whatever at this new game, when so many other games are still singing their siren song.

Mario Odyssey #2?  :kobeyuck  Game was pretty great, but not that great.   And RDR2?  I've played about 3 hours of that game and never have been so bored in my life.  Should I be questioning their Elden Ring score?  ;)

I love how they put "Of All Time".  :rofl

According to people who spend time analyzing all this, closest to constant 60 FPS on console is the PS4 copy running on a PS5 at the cost of resolution and grass density. VRR on Xbox helps there.

Gonna play the PS5 version on PS5. Not too fussy about all that.

There's an early mod to address this however it only works in offline mode. Some also bypass EAC using known methods to be on the safer side, which also opens the game up to widescreen mods.
