>The world of Elden Ring is huge, "seamless" and you can explore it all in coopAd/v/enture party bro's... we're going home. All those hopes of ER having better support for exploring in a small party are coming true. And there seemed to be BLUE summons in the trailer, which all but confirms invasions as well.
>>559094887Don't care not gonna buy it
>/v/ forms a 4-man party>whats your build?I'll be the "Rider of Rohan" RP build
>>559095237dont give a shit, im going to buy it and play it with people i know in rl. youre going to be refreshing 4chan reading stale memes written by mexican teenagers.
>>559095237dont care gonna buy it
How much you wanna bet it's another Dungeon Crawler?
>>559095426I knew the Millwood Knights were the preview for ER the same way Chester and Yamamura were.
>>559095576>"Featuring a vast and seamless landscape with natural weather and time-of-day progression, players will become fully immersed in the world of ELDEN RING as they begin their journey and choose on their own path. Traverse on foot or horseback, alone or online with friends across grassy plains, suffocating swamps and lush forests. Ascend spiraling mountains, enter breathtaking castles, and witness other sites of grandeur on a scale never seen before in a FromSoftware title">"We've crafted a rich world with a staggering sense of scale, commented Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director at FromSoftware"it's gonna be both lad. large open areas worthy of mounted travel but also the classic "souls" dungeon crawling areas. Sounds perfect for a few anons wanting to explore together.
>>559094887I'm so fucking hyped
>>559094887Please tell me there will be invasions Invading someone and tracking him down with horse sounds like the coolest shit ever
>>559097607There was briefly blue summons in the trailer, the fact that they're blue suggests invasions are in.The player is fighting another player sized character in the same scene, but it's not clear if its an invader player or NPC.
>>559094887This is literally my dream game I am so fucking excited.
>>559097894me to frenhopefully they support the game longer after release than previous games so coop/pvp doesnt fill up with hackers and glitch cheaters.
>>559094887>"stealth" is back>grappling hook probably isn'tI don't feel so good bros
>>559099925I hope its not there. It's not Sekiro 2.
I hope there’s lots of random caves and ruins you can explore that has their own unique lore, items and bosses
>>559098750I really hope that Fromsoft doesn't bother or really care about pvp and instead spends more time making an interesting pve experience. Invasions are fun and everything, but they tend to get stale eventually and pvp 1v1 shit is boring and never as deep or as interesting as people pretend it is.It's actually funny, the one person I know who LOVES souls pvp is the biggest casual I know. He's fat, physically handicapped, his vision is considered so poor that he can't drive, and every other pvp game he plays he can't stand because of how bad he is at competitive shit, but Dark Souls pvp for some reason is perfect for his casual autism.
>>559101132I dislike duels, but I always enjoy the chaos of random invasions
>>559097847i wonder if the ashen hair is part of the helmet, or if you can finally have decently long hair in character creator.
I hope its continuous co-op versus summoning after every boss.
Invasions in elden ring are going to be so fucking dope, massive hypeI hope that covenants are more than just color changes this time
>>559096393reading this gets me more hyped than the trailerprobably because the trailer had more le epic bosses and fights scenes when I just want to also see how comfy it is too.
>>559099925horse jumping seems to replace the grappling hook in large open world area's.
>>559102376We have confirmed coop in both game description and the trailer, but there was no mention of PvP anywhere, so I'm not sure it will even be in the game bth.
>>559096393So is this finally true co-op now?Can I just play with my friends without some retarded convoluted ingame systems?
>>559099093isn't there a concept art like that painting?? a big dude with a wolflike dragon.
>>559102229>Traverse on foot or horseback, alone or online with friends across grassy plains, suffocating swamps and lush forests. Ascend spiraling mountains, enter breathtaking castles, and witness other sites of grandeur on a scale never seen before in a FromSoftware titleThe way that's worded to me suggests co-op sessions can last as long as you want it to. It's gonna be kino lads. it SEEMS like they're doing everything I wanted from an open world souls game.
I’ll buy it, marathon it by myself in a dark room for 50-100 hours and then shit it on it here until I get a 3 day ban
>>559094887>Ad/v/enture party bro's... we're going homeI absolutely love adventures like that, but I'm torn. I'd generally rather play solo for the first time on one hand, but on the other, it could be really fun to explore the unknown with a friend.
>>559094887But will co-op even be necessary? I hope it's so hard and such a chore solo that it actively encourages co-op. I always found co-op lame on my first play through in other games, it just waters down the experience. I would like to co-op on my first playthrough if it's actually fun and doesn't turn the game into a hack and slash.
>>559095426I already saw the dual claws in the trailer so I will be the edgy too fast4you dex build
I think the map is going to be similar in size and design to Shadow of Mordor map.
>>559097352>finally getting the ant nest mini-dungeon we were supposed to get in DS2They better be able to paralyze with a single bite like the ants in King's Field 2
>>559094887I think what bothers me the most about Elden Ring is that we have another Hollow-esque group of regular humanoids.
>>559095426naked dual flail shitpost buildbonus if there's an item that lets you throw shit
>>559095426hello based department
How does co-op work in an open world game? Do they even gain levels? The only game where this actually worked and was actually fun was Dying Light
Power stances pls
>>559102453the fact there's BLUE summons in the trailer means it's highly likely there's invasions as well. Also, in the same scene, the player is fighting another player type character - but it's not clear if its a player invader or just an NPC as there's no glow (but as we know, glows can be hidden with rings in previous souls pvp)
>>559094887>Dark souls but Skyrim ohPlease no
Finally lances make sense. They always were retarded before but now that we can actually use lances for their intened purpose and fucking cavalry charge enemies down I am happy.I suppose there will be dungeon-like areas such as castles and caves where you can't use your horse but there will hopefully be one or more boss fights you can fight from horseback
>>559102817flails aren't confirmed to be wieldable yet, unfortunately.
>>559102924>skyrimEverything so far looks like they went full berserk.
>>559094887Like fuck I want to play with any of you. This is the first day I've posted on /v/ all year and I was worse off for it. There's no good discussion here, its all just faggots farming for (You)'s or baiting offtopic threads about twitter shit.>>559095426I'm definitely going heavy lance if we have horse combat. I want to have big fuck off range.
>>559102791I really really really really hate the fact that it looks like dark souls again, I am not even shitposting. I feel like this was an opportunity to create a new setting that brings new aesthetics to the table, similar to Sekiro.This genuinely feels like it is going to be Dark Souls+Ass Creed+co-op.
>>559102575>explore by yourself first>play online afterwardsI don't see the problem anon. even if you've already explored it, playing repeat times with coop will still be fun due tot he roaming AI meaning it'll never be exactly 100% the same out in the open world.
>>559102919>BLUE summons in the trailer means it's highly likely there's invasions as wellnot really, that could just be how normal summons look like, they aren't as blue as sentinels. The problem is that it's the only phantoms we see.>player is fighting another player type character - but it's not clear if its a player invader or just an NPCYeah, that's true, it could be a player. But the fact that they explicitly mention coop in the description and never mention PvP makes me worried.
>>559103047I mean it is fully open world
>>559097607Guarantee there will be at least one invasion zone.
>>559095237Why would anyone buy a souls game? Pirate version is actually superior because no shitty multiplayer.
>>559102705The official description makes it clear the world is seamlessly connected, i.e it's not "hub" based like shadow of mordor. It's one big connected world.
>>559102915Don't get your hopes up, remember the drang twinspears? 2 different spears but they functioned as a paired weapon
What's the call on PVP lads?How do you think invasions/PVP will work with the open world?
>>559103058wish they would have made the game in a desert/middle eastern setting instead of the same grimdark european fantasy
Am I the only one baffled by the fact that fromsoft seems to be incapable of improving their visuals? I mean their concept art is usually always in point, but their 3d department seems to be stuck in late PS3 era.I know it is a nitpick but I'm sort of fatigued by this look they have for every game.
>>559102575idk how to convince a retard buddy of mine to get thishe loves Tolkien and rr Martin's shit but doesn't like souls games.
>>559103259There will be no invasions.
>>559103359You want no invasions
>The world of Elden Ring is huge100% no buy from me.
>>559103259The large open world nature of this would make twinking a dream
>>559103281I was actually hoping that it was a higher fantasy setting, slightly less grimdark and with monsters that don't look like they are literally from Dark Souls. I guess my expectations were wrong but I wanted LOTR but only slightly more edgy.
>>559095426Stealth midget cuckboy
>>559103281>wish they would have made the game in a desert/middle eastern settingI like the aesthetics we've seen in the trailer, but I hav always found desert areas to be extremely comfy. It would be great if we ever got a From game in such a setting.
>>559103342so leave him the fuck alone and let him play cod or whatever normalfag shit he plays like every other npc
>>559103342You can't, it literally looks nothing like Tolkien or Martin's stuffI mean, why force your friend to play a type of game he hates?
>>559094887Didnt the first trailer back years ago show it as a skyrim like game, first person with spells??
>>559103416Yeah if a games world isn't 100% corridors and hallways like ffvii remake I don't even want to look at it.
>>559103452forgive me but the aesthetics in the trailer seem to be stale shit that is barely different from Dark Souls in the first place, with the only difference being the way spells look more high fantasy
>>559103359>source: my ass and the shit therein
>>559103281Remember that there are different kingdoms in the gameIn the leaked trailer we saw a snowy kingdom, perhaps we may also get a desert kingdom as well
>>559103534No, that's Avowed
>>559103305well it still needs to run on the original Xbox One. They'd have to develop two different versions of the game simultaneously, and we've seen how that turned out (see Cyberpunk). At least they're not trying to bullshit us again like they did with DS2/3.
>>559103143I wouldn't worry about the shade of blue. The fact that they've added coop makes me 99% sure there's invasions as well. Why wouldn't they? It's the evolution of souls after all.
>>559103731Why are people still developing for the older gen? I really hate that generations can't just move on for fucking years.
>>559103305And have garbage PS4/xbone versions like CP2077?
>>559103305I think it's a choiche, I know that is sounds lazy but they work with low poly models and try to make the game as smooth as possible while still looking good overall.Those skyboxer look really dissapointing for me personally, bloodborne kinda took all of these in a right direction but DS3 and even Sekiro dumbed them down again.they at least added cloth phsysics since DS2...and volumetric fog in Sekiro...
>>559094887Holy shit does the game have stealth?
https://www.fromsoftware.jp/jp/eldenring/index.html>タイトル: ELDEN RING(エルデンリング)>プレイ人数: 1人~4人>Playercount: 1-4 peopleIt's going to be bloodborne/ds1 style. 2 coop phantoms 1 invader max.
>>559094887>coopnah thx bro
>>559095426The mage-sword guy.Hopefully there's some good weapon and armor variety.I want to bring out my Benheart cosplay.
>>559103359>im bad at the game and don't want there to be invasions because I cant mentally handle being defeated by another playerThere will 100% be invasions hun xox
>>559096393Hopefully this means the game is more like DS1.>>559103305No, their games are already one of the best looking on the market.
If the extent of the open world is what we see in the trailer its fine. if its literally any more im worried. horse combat also has to be refined as fuck to even be relevant
>>559103305Sekiro looked great though, what do you mean?
can i play this game 4k@60fps on my rtx 3800 ??
>>559095426Giant Sword fucker with no clothes and all the buffs
>>559103834PS4 still has the largest playerbase. development started pretty early (after Ringed City) too
>>559103452I think desert is just the perfect change of setting because it's strikingly different even down to the basic color scheme, and the amount of historical inspiration from such settings is second to none. You have mesopotamia, babylonia, egypt, arabia, jews, christians, turkey, rome, blacks, persia, alexanders conquests, and all the other innumberable civilizations like assyria, sumer, ur, crusaders, spain, etc etc, and that's just the MENA region let alone all the other desert regions from the americas to china. Water is also the most relevant element in a desert, and is of just as extreme mythological significance as fire
ER so far has the worst art design of modern from titles, like DS3 but even worse.
>>559103863DS2 had volumetric fog that was never enabled anywhere in the game.
>>559104040Not that guy, but I would like invasions if it wasnt so laggy. If the fights vs invaders had the same responsiveness as regular ingame enemies I would love it.
>>559104229More like it's half Bloodborne half whatever. Bloodborne looks really ugly, and DS3 is ugly because it's built on BB.
>>559094887You're implying I won't be playing offline, which is obviously not the case.
>>559103616I don't know how you can say that while being serious. the whole aesthetic is WAY more colourful/vibrant than previous souls, and has clearly more high fantasy design inspirations throughout the look.
>>559104286They're very responsive unless you have a 500+ ping faggot from China or Australia.That's why they have region settings in the menu.And invasions are rare in DS2/3 unless you summon help, it's the way the game scales the difficulty for summons, it lets invaders come fuck you up if you just go full coop.
>>559104071What the fuck are you talking about? From games are one of the worst looking on market, in fact their graphics and animations are so outdated that if not for stellar art direction it would be outright shit.
>>559095426Pyromancer artilleryAt least I hope pyromancy is in, it was my favorite playstyle, aesthetic and lore in DS.
>>559103259wait what are invasions?
>>559103305if you think this, or DaS3/BB/Sekiro look like ps3 games, you're either being purposely making comments in bad faith or you've never played a ps3 game.They all look fantastic for ps4 games.
I wanna fuck a horse.
>>559104475I am not trying to shitpost or anything, I honestly feel like what you are saying is some kind of a cope. Of course the overall art direction is slightly shifted but if you are completely honest to yourself you you could take most of the random screenshots and show it to people that haven't seen the trailer and they will think it's Dark Souls 4.This is especially true for the way monsters look.
>>559104126It looks a lot like DS3 so try playing that in 4K and see.
>>559104557i mean the webm you posted shows the unresponsiveness that puts me off. the blue guys stagger animation comes way too late after the red guys hits. looks/feels unnatural.im sensitive to that shit i guess.
>>559102548Hello, based department?
>>559104687He's right thoughArt Direction = God TierAnimations = middling tierGraphics= shit tierDon't be a blind fanboy, everything has flaws.
>>559104634I'm actually pretty spooked about none of the Souls magic schools (pyro/int/faith/hex) being in Elden Ring. It is a different setting after all. I just hope the armor sets will be good, DS3 selection was total trash because everything looked so dark and muddy.
>>559104664I feel like graphically from games have not improved since Dark Souls 1 at all, the major difference that happened is that they added more baked reflections over time, increased draw distance and lighting engine was overhauled.The meshes themselves as well as overall visual fidelity is overwhelmingly same.In fact look at Demon Souls remake on PS5, it objectively has better graphics than From games, even though it has far worse art direction.I honestly feel like this is because they are developing for the shitty PS4 as others have said, but if people like it doesn't really matter I guess
>>559103616>barely different from Dark SoulsBut I love the designs in Dark Souls
>>559104728The monsters look more BB than Souls. Souls hasn't looked like itself since BB, DS3 is just a BB expansion.
>>559104574You are fucking blind, the overall graphical quality is beatiful and everyone would agree except you who saw an semi-bad animation or an jagged edge. You graphic elitists are fucking idiots. Imo graphics better than DS3 are unnecessary and will just slow down development. Perhaps thats the reason DS3 had good looking shitty levels.
>>559104748Sounds to me like you want LAN tier connections over the internet.I can reaction parry just fine and even if there's a slight delay, you can gauge it when hitting a dude, if it takes quarter of a second for the damage to pop up, you know you may need to delay your parries a little.I can hande 3v1s just fine and win about 40% of them so it's nothing special.
>>559104924From is not an AAA dev, and they aren't making cinematic movie games. I haven't needed better graphics since the fucking gamecube, I don't really care if From never increases the poly counts.
>>559104935Are you okay with from games all looking the same? It is very odd to me because there used to be a point at which their designs felt unique and clearly distinct, but it is reaching a point for me personally where there are so many games by from in that style and so many immitators that this art direction is starting to feel generic, like one of the staples in gaming instead of a unique exception.
>>559105004Fuck yeah. Although I bet it's gonna be very meaningless stealth.
>>559104924>I feel like graphically from games have not improved since Dark Souls 1 at allAre you blind? The Bloodborne engine upgrade was a big thing, and BB, DS3 and Sekiro look way better than DeS, DS1 and DS2.
>>559104868FROMs weapon animations on the player a definitely god tier in both BB and DS3.Maybe their engine and render techniques are a bit behind or they need to nerf them to have good framerates for consoles but they're only slightly behind, just look at BB.
>>559104871>I just hope the armor sets will be goodThe few that we've seen looked great imo
>>559103143Eh I never liked souls pvp anyway since your builds for pve and pvp could vary a lot. So you either got invaded by someone geared for PvP and he wrecked your Pve char or you yourself made a dedicated PvP build and had to go to these community determined pvp spots. I dabbled in it but with the shitty netcode and unbalanced gameplay I always wondered why not just play a dedicated PVP game where you don't have to start a new save file if you want to play a different character and unstead go to the roster and pick a different one.That's like playing GTAV for its car races. Sure, they're servicable but a dedicated racing game does everything better.
>>559104979This is a lie, I am not going to argue with your opinions but the assumption that graphics better than DS3 slow down development are the result of gay or campaigns by game developers.Making extremely high fidelity looking graphics is easier now than it ever was, I am saying this as a zbrush character sculptor.
>>559104557>region settingsThe only regions in souls games is japan and not-japan and that isn't a joke.
>>559104728this guy here is more BB than DS
>>559105119Open world means nonlinearity. Nonlinearity means you can wander into the wrong area and get your shit pushed in by high level mobs. Stealth, even if it's as rudimentary as sekiro, means you can avoid getting your shit pushed in.
>>559104924>I feel like graphically from games have not improved since Dark Souls 1 at allYou may need to have your brain tumors checked if you thing BB or DS3 looks anywhere close to this.
>>559104040>twinkingAt least do normal invasions.
>>559104557I made a build with that sword my first playthrough, it's amazing at handling groups. staggers and catches everybody in all directions
>>559104989>Sounds to me like you want LAN tier connections over the internetexactly what mean. not about winning or losing the fights. it just doesnt look/feel natural. takes me out of the game. im an IMMERSHUN faggot an Dark Souls pvp kills that for me.having said all that i always play online. and i dont like summoning real players. i sometimes enjoy summoning npc's for the story element they provide though
even if there's not pvp and its just coop, I give it 2 months before there's a PVP mod made for the PC version for those that want it
>>559105095>Are you okay with from games all looking the same?Anon, it's going to be 5 games over the course of 13 years, do you unironically think it is too much?And even then, they don't look all the same.
>>559105069I mean, I'm not attacking people who like from games visually, if it is fine for you it's coolI just feel like they are AAA by all definitions, maybe lower size AAA but still in this categoryFor me the combination of relatively same graphics fidelity as well as surprisingly samey visuals have lead to a trailer that I'm not excited for at all
I hope no early access for streamers, I would hate hate it if entire game would be spoiled on launch day.
>>559101492The whole Honorable PvP shit is the one thing I have about the Souls games. Games give you so many options to set up sneaky attacks. And it's way tenser, knowing that an Area you don't know also has a player running around there some place, watching your every step. Waiting for the perfect moment to strike.Invading people in the Shrine in DaS2 was the most fun I ever had with a souls game
>>559104868>Animations = middling tierhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2y2NBCVdyJ4&ab_channel=Shirrakohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxRvPgVijKo&ab_channel=BossFightDatabase
>>559105381No, BB runs at a locked 30 for 90% of the game with a few drops to 25.
>>559105449I guess you are right, it isn't quite yearly releases or anything but I'm just being honest when I say that I'm tired of current from designsIt might be not even their fault but the fact that remakes and remasters as well as competitors have increased the amount of similar looking games, dunno
Omni confirmed PvP a while back, and he's been spot on with everything else so I see no reason to doubt him on that.Shame it seems to be limited to 4 players though, I wonder why they did that?
Sekiro 2 when...
>>559105502>watching streamers>going on /v/ around the launch of a game you dont want spoiledblame yourself
>>559102931You can see in the trailer you use the horse to fight that big lightning dragon
>>559105537Lol nigger those animations look like janky flashy shit without any semblance of dynamic IK in fact I'm pretty sure that they are all hard canned
I'm gonna laugh my ass off if the character creator is still the old BB/DS3 one with the derpy faces and everyone looking super skinny without armor. MHW, Nioh 2 and DeS remake had really good ones.
I just wanna invade niggas and fuck around with the PVP. If we can't have horseduels why fucking bother.
>>559094887Is co-op even confirmed?
>>559105525>be bad at PvP>get invaded>hide with the mimic spell/item >invader passes me several times>wastes 20 minutes looking for me while I pet my cat and make stellar posts on 4chan>just as he teleports back, roll out of my disguise and point down emoteheh
>>559105728hopefully after thissekiro is ripe for a sequel, it was both amazing but also did a lot of things shoddily so you can improve on them in a sequelplus it was sequelbaited in the ending
>>559095426I'M DA JOKAH, BAYBE
>>559105216I see, but can you get it run on your PS4 for more than 20fps? Additionally, all assets need to share the same level of fidelity or it looks shit. It's not just that simple, graphics should never lead the design of a game.
>>559105239I think that was only a PC/steam thing.But yeah they should have at least a ping setting so you can't get connected to over 300-400ms fags or something.It shouldn't allow you to select something like <50ms only because casuals would use that to pretty much block 90% of invasions.
>>559095426Back the fuck up I'm spitting rocks.
>>559102072Probably helmet since helmets have always overridden hair.
>>559105824>without any semblance of dynamic IK in fact I'm pretty sure that they are all hard cannedYes and? You can take your unresponsive AAA game animations and fuck off.
>>559095426>>559105879nvm, I'll be the fast one
>>559105846>grenade isn't even armedWhy are black people so dumb?
>>559095426i'll rp as gimli
>>559105851https://www.fromsoftware.jp/jp/eldenring/index.html1 - 4 playersThere's also blue summons in the trailer.
>>559105828I know this is a rare pick, but despite the generic art direction Elder scrolls online has mechanically the best character creator bar Korean MMOs, and it is a lot more implementable in current games imho
>>559105931Somebody fucking gets it
>>559105728I would've said never ever if you asked me after release, but given its critical acclaim and the number of GOTY awards it received, I'd say there's a 5% chance.
>>559105853That was a bad/bored invader then.Hosts in DS3 have ember particles emanating from them even when they're in a chameleon spell, so it's obvious unless you hide under some broken barrel or crate.That shit almost never works on me.
>>559105895Of course PS4 isn't an option anymore, I really hope it dies out soon enough, as do scalpers so more people can get ps5
What do you guys make of this?
>>559105931it sure is fun when characters look like they are shizoid spazers and rdr 2 is a great game if you treat it like you would treat an immersive sim
>>559105193I like invasions because it allowsme to see different kinds of builds and players. >Sword and baord fags>Mage fags with two summons at every moment>Miracle fag who likely just got back from coop>The obvious noob who has no idea what to do>The pvp fag who wants "honorable" duel so I use all my dickstab tactics>The veteran who's going to duck your arseI love it all
Q: What is the game genre of "ELDEN RING"?A:This is an action RPG from a third person perspective.Unlike "SEKIRO: SHADOWS DIE TWICE", which emphasized action, this work emphasizes the RPG part.Of course, we have prepared the fun and response of action-based swashbuckler.
>>559094887wow sounds like the same marketing bullshit every other game uses these days
>big open world>no map>no objective pointers>just a big fook'n tree to use as referencereal adventure & exploration is back on the menu lads

>>559105728You meanARMORED CORE 6 FUCKINGWHEN
>>559094887>Source requiredI mean I'm excited as fuck. But Miyazaki hasn't done a proper non-convoluted phantom bs coop or a working net code yet. All DS games are plagued with shitty laggy PvP, the same fucking hacks and cheats and OS vulnerabilities since Dark Souls 1, etc. And if it has open world elements as we've been told, that's a massive risk. Every single open world game is nothing but a shitty grind, single player MMO quality trash; quantity over any quality. The last thing I want is for FromSoft to go the path of Nioh 2 and be just a fucking massive grind.The gameplay looked seriously amazing. But we don't know enough yet.
>>559106258>no mapWas this confirmed or is it speculation?They should prob do a self filling map like Hollow Knight.Maybe even a map vendor so the casuals that truly need it can grind money and buy a map for each zone/kingdom while veterans can ignore that for most of the game.
>>559095426>Silver Mask>Ruin Gauntlets>Ruin Leggings>Slave Knight Armor>1 handed Lightning Drakeblood Greatsword
>>559106573ok contrarian faggot. if you dont want to play the game fuck off then, open world doesnt instantly mean its some mmo bullshit. making yourself look sub 20 IQ
>>559094887So is this caravan thing the "roaming bosses" people talked about? Kind of expect this one to be the only one like that desu.
>>559106568Armored Core was bad and is dead sorry.
>>559106258They haven't showed any real gameplay (with the player camera and UI and shit) so you don't know jack yet. I seriously doubt there will be no map in a fucking open world game. Will probably have markers too.
>>559106237yeah but the wins just don't give me anything. With 0 matchmaking and shitty balance the outcome feels predetermined and empty. If I win, I might've just had the better build or he was a total noob, if I lose, then it's the other way around. Especially when twinking was easier and you could one shot Sl7 players with a heavy combustion at undead burg. Did it once for fun but come on. And don't even mention gank squads. In a story/lore heavy game where the boss fights and exploration are undoubtedly the main course I never got how PvP even got any attention from players. I quickly get griefer/troll vibes because those people surely ain't looking for a challenge and the ones that do will play a fighting game or something like For Honor or Mordhau/Chivalry.
>>559094887I am skeptical. One of the best things about the souls series is the tightly designed level layout. If it's all open world will the magic still be there? Open world fatigue is real.
I hope it has some form of climbing to compliment the verticality, and more ways to interact with the environment than Souls has. That would make it perfect for me.
>>559106492>worse than any of DS2's repeated tiled textures.on par
>>559096393I need to know if you have to re-summon your friends after a biss fight or notan entire playthrough in coop is a must
>>559106769Could be tied to the storyLike 'something important is in this carriage, go kill the caravan and secure it'
>>559106784You're bad and your moms gonna be dead tonight
I still remember /v/ whining about Sekiro E3 trailer's graphics and repeating castle wall textures.
>>559106869>I hope it has some form of climbingThere was a scene where the horse jumps up a huge cliff, but it seems like it jumped from a very specific marked spot, so I'm thinking it's something like grappling hook points in Sekiro, where you don't have a way to organically use it anywhere, but only in places they set.
>>559106216Emm... were the Millwood Knights from "Ashes of Ariandel" from this setting?
>>559106861Level scaling is also an issue. Other Souls games have had this problem as well, but they usually limited the number of areas you could access at any given point and some areas were always more difficult than others (like the Catacombs in DS1).
>>559106745>great sword>clown armorcringehere, I show you how I roll since DaS:> goldeb, crown like helm of favor>baggy, super comfy brigand trousers>nothing else to show your superior upper body strength>YUGE axe, club or UGSThat's an absolutely royal chad build where the crown is already part of the armor
>>559094887Open world invasions sounds like compete dog shit, not interested in invading a group of 4+ people all on horse back running away constantly or hiding in a giant world.
>>559094887The graphics look to be around the same level as Sekiro, if slightly better. Which is pretty much what I was hoping for, as it was always being designed for last gen consoles in mind. It's clearly a step up from Dark Souls 3's base game content, as that had many areas which were clearly unfinished in terms of lighting and geometry etc.I've not seen it as much on /v/, but the Demons Souls remake comparisons, while inevitable, are undeserved. Bluepoint were given first party exclusive finances and technology to develop a graphical showcase, and the majority of their development was just that, graphics, built upon the skeleton of a game which will likely end up being several magnitudes smaller than Elden Ring.
The Elden Ring: Breath of the Lords
>>559106796imagine being this wrong about a souls game lmao
>>559106814Then you should be the invader looking for challenge. Not the twinking faggot who just wants to sap others fun. Gank squads are fun since they're a true test of strength, to see if you can outwit three retards who thought messing with you was a smart idea. Cosplay invasion builds were ton of fun, I spent lots of time in DS1 being a pure Darkwraith and aiming to absorb as much of humanity as possible.
>>559107161Oh jesus, if the enemies have levels I'll throw a fit
>>559107342graphics look way worse than sekiro lmfao
>>559106765Jesus fuck you people are so dumb it hurts. I just said I'm excited as fuck. Yet every worry I said is a real concern and a real issue with past games. This is the problem with how average IQ is so fucking low, you people can only comprehend being 100% or 0%, black and white, nothing in between. Zero ability for criticism and tempering expectations.
>>559095237>don't care>not gonna buy it>still posts on threadthe machinations within a /v/tard's brain is truly mysterious
>>559094887WTF's up with the shitty late PS3 gen graphics? I don't really know if I can handle it after Demon's Souls. Could be a skip.
The open world is just going to be like Hyrule Field from Twilight Princess probably.
>>559103958I could be remembering wrong, but I think their DaS3 pre-release page used to say the same even though its up to 6 players (their product page does now say 1 - 6 for it)It could mean 1 - 4 as in thats the max numbers for coop, player + 3 summons but invaders are extra. Or maybe it really is a max of 4 including invaders. Either way, Omni confirmed PvP a while back.
>>559107606weird that people like this actually exist
>this uninspired grimdark trash after Sekinosomeone kill me please
>>559107159YesMiyazaki likes to occasionally hide a hint towards a future game in the current one, though these hints only usually become apparent in hindsightFor DS1 this was Chester, hinting towards BloodborneFor Bloodborne, it was Yamamura hinting towards SekiroFor DS3 it was the millwoods and their worship of an 'ethereal oak' that was a hint towards Elden RingDS2 had none because it wasn't made by Miyazaki, and Deracine's only real easter egg is a doll that does the 'make contact' emote from Bloodborne, though there is a book that is potentially a hint towards a future game or might play into ER somehow
>>559103958Bb had 5 tho
Playing souls online.People really do this?
>>559107413Eh, if only one guy in the gank squad knows what he's doing, you're fucked already. Sure it can be fun at times but it's just not worth the effort for me. Souls Pvp just doesn't scratch that competitive online gaming itch for me, will always be a 99% single player/coop experience for the lore, story, RP and BossfightsMAYBE if ER has really good balancing and way better netcode I might try it out, but my first playthrough will probably be offline anyway. No messages, no coop, no invasions.
>>559105004oof, getting some DS2 vibes from that shot
>>559106258If there is a map I'm turning it off, with mods if I have to.
>>559107342as long it runs well on current PCs is all I want. Same engine? Good because RX 580 users need it with current GPUs prices. I mean, it will be on XB1 so...
>>559107963Don't worry your scrub little head, it's ok to play easy mode against predictable NPC's and mobs that can't even fight back. No-one's judging you.
>>559108350>says this when pvp is a shitfest because of from's shitty job at netplay
>>559104326This is the most retarded take in existence. Bloodborne looks incredible and mogs every From game in prettiness till DeS remake which is only because the graphics are literally next gen
>>559107963I like both helping and destroying people's playthroughs, yes.
>>559108486besides unfunny messages and some underage kid trying to grief you there is 0 reason to want to play with online mode enabled, it adds nothing adn people championing it are probably majority part of the "underage griefer kid" group
>>559107161>>559107486One of the very earliest "leaks" which ended up having a lot of accurate info talked about the game progression as visiting 4 different corners of the map to claim something from 4 different Lords (super obvious Fromsoft structure) but having the world change somewhat after each Lord is defeated, with difficulty of midworld enemies only increasing when you slay a Lord and the order you kill Lords in changing up how the difficulty of the game progresses. Which is way better than dynamic level scaling.
>>559108753Yeah that sounds good, I hope it's accurate
>>559107781Sekiro is grimdark as fuck its just hidden under the bright colours of most of the open areas and the two main antagonists. There is a plotline where you literally send a mentally stunted monk to get mindbroken in Ashina's weird sex dungeon
>>559108663people are gonna say "git gud filtered zoomer loser" but i agree sir
>>559107781More than half of that is senpou temple and fountainhead palace. The former was barely present in trailers and the latter was completely absent.
>>559106719map of the overworld you pick up on a scroll or some shit would be nicemaybe thats just me tho cos i have no sense of direction
>>559108893And that's how it should be, grim content shouldn't prevent colorful scenic vistas.
>>559108753oh that sounds nice.
>>559094887Looks like a pretty dumb setting desu
I haven't bought a game in YEARS since becoming PC chad but I am absolutely buying this shit day 1,no way am missing open world co-op with you guys like the early days of DeS
>>559107347>The Elden Mint
>>559097352With any luck this time round they won't have to strip out the entire lighting system before release again. Give me those creepy pitch black caves and dungeons that necessitate bringing your own light sources and can't be circumvented by maxing out the gamma setting.
>>559108076and that's a good thing>>559108663lmao scrub
>>559107342DeS remake looks technically impressive but creatively and artistically bankrupt. Fromsoft's own games have always been the opposite and Elden Ring follows that pattern.It's the Soul vs Soulless argument again, where Fromsoft produce average fidelity kino with amazing use of colour and creative vision while other studios create 4k raytraced AA'd anisofiltered UE5 technical showcases of Mario-If-He-Real.
>>559108350only time souls pvp is good is for the first week when everyone is using crazy builds and you get some fun as fuck fights, after that you get invaded by everyone using meta builds for the next few months.after that pvp is dead and some dork with 600ms backstabs you from the other side of the room 4 times and spams emotessoulds pvp is for idiots
>>559108753Then the easy way around it is to just clear everything until the boss then warp back.Locking the level scaling behind the big bosses isn't a super good idea.
>>559109019who the fuck wants to play with /v/
>>559106371BASED AND THISPILLED
>>559094887>explore it all in cooplmao so it‘s not the next goty but the GOTYAY holy shit
>>559109353you are aware of the fact that enemies respawn after warping anywhere in Souls games, yes?in case you're referring to opening shortcuts, why not give players that option if they want to have an easier time with the game? you may be missing out on content if you do that so that's a fair tradeoff.
>>559109676Lately soul games place a bonfire/whatever just before the boss so at that point it's just a really short run after having an easy time because you've still basically cleared other areas and super upgraded your stuff beyond what weak enemies can do against you.
>>559108893god i wish that were me
Man this trailer is being so well received, outside of a few contrarian virgins on here. I have buds who aren't into souls who are now interested and seen others sharing it on faceyb
>>559108350>gets his ass handed to him in any competitive shooter, RTS or fighting game>goes noob stomping in souls games to win for onceIs souls PvP the place where filtered people go?
>>559109873that's an issue of bonfire placement which affects the level scaling, not the other way around. my biggest hope is that they remove warping altogether or at the very least make it very limited like the lordvessel.
>>559106869>I hope it has some form of climbing to compliment the verticalityI'd be really happy if we have a genuine climbing mechanic of SotC in here when it comes to giant enemies.
I hate how all of you watched the trailer and I didn't. I care about the first playthrough, it has to be as blind as possible.
>>559110510then why are you here?
>>559110510They showed like 7 bosses in the trailer, tons of cuts of different locations and "big dude/gal in armor".But I'm not autistic and don't care about muh spoilers.
>>559109267Meanwhile after what, 6 years since DaS3 was released? It still has 10-20k daily players, a huge portion of which are there for the PvP. Yeah, you were filtered. No game is perfect, but DaS3 net code is an issue in barely 1/10 matches. Not a real issue at all. So you can eat your excuses and lies and go back to playing easy mode, scrubbles.>>559110284Except I play CS, Apex, PUBG and MMO's (for PvP, of course) too. Sounds to me like you're nothing but a projecting woman. How does it feel to be filtered, casual? Like denial, yes I can see that.
>>559110510i will forget it all over the course of the next 7 months
>>559110618I feel the pull man
>>559110510Doesn't matter, Miyazaki will move about 6 boss fights and re-do a third of the story between now and release despite looking incredibly polished by souls standards
>>559105095>there used to be a point at which their designs felt unique and clearly distinctand when was that?
>>559094887Ah man whole game co-op is pretty sweet. Regarding the story and world, do you guys think it will be interesting? I played DOS1 and 2 and enjoyed them a lot so I'm not a hard-core fan but still like them and to me it just sounds like a lot more of the same? Are there any major distinguishments that we know of at this point?
>played all From games>played most souls-likes including 2D ones>literally want to vomit upon seeing yet another "oh tarnished one, seek lords to save this cursed kingdom" song and danceI might actually skip this.Was hoping we'd get an actual RPG in a medieval setting, you know, like Game of Thrones, or Witcher, Kingdom Come etc. Or hell, what about Mount & Blade but FromSoft? Just not another Dark Souls asset flip.
>>559111018It's the only thing they know, except maybe Sekiro where the whole go collecting stuff is introducing mid game and otherwise you're busy saving your shota.
>>559094887>playing a singleplayer game in coopi wouldnt recommend that at least for your first playthrough, there's always someone who plays games differently than you, either skipping all story and just speedrunning the combat or the opposite
>>559110916>do you guys think it will be interesting?>GRRMUnless you like rape then probably no
>>559109353You have exactly zero clue how enemy spawning works but I'm sure you've discovered a game breaking shortcut that nobody at Fromsoft could possibly have considered.
>>559094887This is literally the only game that I'm looking forwarf toAnd maybe Silksong but that one is never coming out
>>559094887Multiplayer focus like that always has me worried but souls games somehow worked out. Something like RE5 is fun as hell in co-op but is really fucking shit single player and I hope this game doesn't fall into that camp.
>>559111163So you're going to dismiss that BB, sekiro and ds3 were extremely lenient with bonfire placement when it came to bosses?
>>559104924God you are a fucking retard, what is wrong with you? Go play dark souls 1 again and see if you feel the same.
>>559111018>Was hoping we'd get an actual RPG in a medieval setting, you know, like Game of Thrones, or Witcher, Kingdom Come etcJesus FUUUUUUUCKING Christ what is wrong with you people?
>>559111140Ill be doing MY first playthrough solo, but I have two buds who will be getting ER so ill jump into their worlds if needed. They're pretty casual PvE players while im the fanatic souls guy so I'll be well ahead of them in my own playthrough, so I won't be spoiling anything for myself and they won't see spoilers either.
>>559106573>The last thing I want is for FromSoft to go the path of Nioh 2 and be just a fucking massive grind.Whats so grundy about 2?Everything bar rare inheritables was piss easy to acquire.I have 600 hours in it and made over 14 various builds to almost full completion
>>559111208it's not FOCUSED on coop, its just there if you want it like in previous souls games. The big difference seems to be that players can fully explore together instead of limited summons who leave after the boss dies.
Has From finally jumped the shark?The trailer left me hollow.
>>559111018>Read all the threads>Viewed all the images>Literally want to vomit after yet another copy of this exact same pasta.I might actually skip this one guys, seems like /v/ is running out of ideas.
>>559111525>GoT guy is on board, maybe there will be some towns and shit>no dude, fuck it, do the undead kingdom shtick again
>>559096393>suffocating swampsit's dark souls alright
>>559094887As long as it doesn't have the gay faggy dark souls online system. That shit is fucking annoying.
I just want more focus on covenants.Das3 was so soulless with that, even BB had more fun covenants especially with whole vilecucks shitposting
>>559103305Fromsoft always have very busy and detailled designs for both characters and enviroments. If you compare the bloodborne concept art to the actual finished game, you will see that they basically 1:1 translated it, which is insane, because the finished product is usually a very watered down version of the conxept art in order to make it work. I feel like they purposefully keep the actual technical aspects of their assets a little lower to keep the designs more dense. Apart from that, there have been huge visual upgrades since Demon souls, its just never on top of the competition, because they focus more on art direction than others.pic related, its painted concept art but looks identical to the finished game.
>>559103091>roaming AII hope that's true but not holding my breath, expecting bog standard open world theme park but with souls combat. I doubt there's even per hit matching mechanics like Sekiro or otherwise
>>559111974Yeah, hoping the PVP is optional this time around. Just let me turn it off in the settings and only play co-op exclusively.
>>559112407Even getting coop set up in souls is a pain in the ass.Hope they just implement something like Nioh 2's system.
>>559097352>rehashed ariandel catacomb they're not even trying anymore, it's assassins creed at this point.
>>559094887Imagine multi group invasion fighting each others I think it feels like dark souls 3.5 but I hope the PvP will be KINO
>>559112556You will still buy it and play it on release together with us.
>>559112620>implyingI'm gonna pirate it.
>>559105567then why did the video look like 12?
>>559103015so no flagellant?
>>559112651>>559112718>pirating a game that's complete garbage without the mplmao
>>559112556Well, given that Ariandel seems to have had at least one tease for Elden Ring it's not out of the question that that was another.obviously the world of Elden Ring is the new painted world, built with memories of the world of fire, which is why its setting superficially resembles it
Unironically hope chalice Dungeons come backDepth 5 FRC delving with anons is the most fun I had in these games. Absolutely merciless and unpredictable at times, the sheer terror of fighting a roaming boss like HMPH while getting assaulted by infinite waves of red spiders when you hear a second one is priceless.
>>559112853Speaking of painted worlds, the narrator loli sounds very similar to the painter girl that I wouldn't be surprised if she's a reference to her.
>>559103015They were part of leaked trailer, and since it reused some of the scenes of official trailer, i think its safe to assume we will have flails.
>>559105381>>559105567>>559112707bloodborne (and other fromsoft games) have have faulty framerate limit that causes inconsistent frame pacingit's really bad and makes the game feel like it's stuttering but i don't expect from will fix it for elden ring
>>559112301it's not all roaming stuff. The fixed, traditional "souls" style areas (ruins, castles etc) will probably be largely fixed position AI that's maybe a bit more dynamic to take into account the day - night cycle.Omni described the roaming AI while talking about the open world sections, so we're gonna get a mix of both. The out doors, open areas will be more unpredictable with AI that move about, while the more traditional souls style areas will be more of what we're used to.
>>559110706>Except I play CS, Apex, PUBG and MMO's (for PvP, of course) tooSure you did, and you got stomped hard.
I hope they bring back the chalice system for spelunking
>>559112801I'll probably delete it 5-10 hours in since the combat is still the same slow, garbage, souls shit anyway.
I absolutely hate open world games so it's probably a pirate where I play for less than 10 hours before never coming back to it again.
What I wanna know is how is the magic going to work. 90% of the time magic was useless or a downgrade compared to everything else in Dark Souls 3 unless you were killing a limbless toddler in pvp, especially if you compare it to the Dark Bead shit in DS1. Also from the trailer I don't get why people cream themselves over the graphics...looks like DS3 to me? The Demon's Souls remaster looks amazing in comparison. Not that it matters since gameplay>all but still.
>>559112968It's the same VA as the firekeeper, not the painting girl.Doesn't mean anything. Fromturdware reuses the same assets for each game, down to VA's.
>>559112968This is completely my operating theory now, surely there's no way they don't try and tie it back in with how heavily the setting obviously draws on DS.I will also wildly speculate that that dead-seeming dried squid in the trailer is something to do with the age of the deep. Also I reckon that the fire-spitting mechanical head is meant to resemble whatever that thing was when it was alive.
>>559113172I hope the magic is brand new but with soul stream and hsm in trailers I am not holding my breath for "sorceries" at least. Odd how Das2 and BB had best magic in the series.
>>559113175>firekeeperSounds way too young to be her. Sounds close to Yorshka tho
>>559112556Come on, it's a sticky bug cave, they're in every RPG.
>>559094887honestly full co-op alone is making me consider getting this. if you can really play through the entire game with a friend, it's enough to put my Souls fatigue aside and just use it as a banter engine.
>>559105525Honor? What? You don't have to honor duel even in the arena. Those are just house "rules" people made so they have time to apply their buffs. Just rush them down.
LORE SPECULATIONWhat is the someone or something?What is the greater will?is it lovecraft squid aliens again
>cleave through the enemies leg>doesn't register>dodge attack>get hit anywayLooks like hitbox kino is back on the menu boys!

>>559095426Holy knight. It's my go to in every single Souls game since Demon's.
>>559103512It does look quite Tolkien, though a dark souls take on Tolkien sure.
>hitbox kino>rolling kino>adventure kinoDSbros...this is home

>>559104126no, you can hardly do 30fps in 720p
>>559095426I'll be the horse archer, whittling you down from afar.
>>559111902They do this in non-Souls games, too.
>>559103834scalpers.There's usually a grace period of 16mo~ where most major publishers demand devs push out older gen versions as well.
>>559103416>>559103564I can't wait to hold the W key for minutes at a time as I ride from needlessly distant place to needlessly distant place.
I'm so fucking sick and tired of MUH OMG HUGE empty AAA open worlds
>>559114017i hope shes a friendly NPC. I dont want to kill red girl.
>>559112801try tongue but hole amirite?
>>559114314sorry but the world doesn't revolve around the needs of jaded virgins.And FROM is an AA studio, not AAA.
>DS3 but more nordic aesthericI cant wait to press R1 for 80 hours but i get to ride a horse inbetween
>>559113609I guarantee you the game will have a giant twist like aliens or that the "Elden Ring" was just a futuristic device made to bring balance upon the world
>>559114529>or that the "Elden Ring" was just a futuristic device made to bring balance upon the worldIsn't that literally what the first trailer said
>>559114307Oh you've already played the game and know it'll be like this? Of course you don't retard now shut your cunt mouth
>>559114528What do you constantly use in other games like platformers and shooter? Dumb fuck.
>>559114625Go ahead and name one open world game made in the last 10 years that isn't like that
>>559113354>OH MY GOD LOOK AT THIS HECKIN PIXEL THAT MEANS IT'S ACTUALLY A SEQUEL TO DARK SOULS 3 Why can't you retards accept that it's a completely new setting that has NOTHING to do with DS, like what Miyasaki stated?
>>559095426you're gonna play "Faggot of Nigger" build cus that's what soulstrannies are
>>559113630umm the whip hit the very top of his head and it hurt a lot ok??

>>559113630That's co op lag
>>559114529I was thinking Elden Ring is a group of people, like a circle or clique, and being the Elden Lord means to reside over themSo we will go olaround looking for shattered pieces of elden ring and beat them up into submission
>>559114710have you tried thinkingof course you haven't
>>559095426FAITH Swordsman.Imbue sword with thunder. Zap people. Deploy heals.
>>559114642nigger at least the other souls game i have to wait for an opening or use heavy attack every now and then but literally everything in DS3 gets beaten by a dex weapon R1 spam.DS2 and DS3 are both dogshit.
>>559114868>the other souls game i have to wait for an opening or use heavy attack every now and thenReally. You HAVE to use a heavy attack?What DS1 bosses are unbeatable with R1s?
>>559104871Wait there's no magic in ER? I could have sworn I saw soul greatsword in the trailer
>>559105095>there used to be a point at which their designs felt unique and clearly distinctMost From games are visually garbage. Souls was their first attempt at something that looked like non-generic fantasy diarrhea.
>>559094887>needs to coop to beat the gameLmao, loser
>>559114942Read you mongoloid, I said that you spam the R1 button in every single DS3 encounter, the pace of the game is just holding forward and spamming attack over and over over a course of a fucking 70 hour game.I don't have to use heavies in DS1 but the pace is completely different from 3 because 3 is just rehashed Bloodborne enemies with DS combat so anything that isn't a dex weapon suffers.
>>559115024Try reading next time
>>559115220>I don't have to use heavies in DS1>>559114868>other souls game i have to wait for an opening or use heavy attackThanks for conceding that you were lying
>>559114426How is she friendly when she's stabbing you in that scene
>>559094887"emboldened by the flame of ambition... someone must extinguish thy flame!"This has such a deep meaning, it is not only about the player rising up to the challenge and defeating the boss, but it is also about From Software and Hidetaka Miyazaki in the role of the player but at their own game of game development, rising up against their previous games and the supreme standard they have set for the gaming industry, and surpassing them all with the flame of ambition that fuels their creative genius... Elden Ring will be the magnum opus of From Software and Hidetaka Miyazaki and one of the best games ever made, if not the best game ever made."emboldened by the flame of ambition... someone must extinguish thy flame!"This single line still sends chills down my spine and makes my heart tingle with feelings that I only felt when I was a child, feelings I'd thought I wouldn't experience again as a grown man. Thinking about the amazing OST I will enjoy, the ethereal and surreal vistas I will see when exploring and adventuring in this wondrous world of Elden Ring, the lore and story secrets I will discover, the fine-tuned and satisfying combat and boss fights I will get to enjoy, the artistic weapons, armor and robes that will adorn my character... I have tears in my eyes as I write this, these positive feelings are the truth of life, true love, true happiness.God Bless Hidetaka Miyazaki the Great,God Bless From Software,I love you and thank you, for as long as you are around, Gaming will always have something valuable to offer me.
Predict the death sound.
>>559115408>you will lose your Rings, over and over again
>>559115461Ok"aaaargh"I don't see the purpose of this exercise
>>559115408I hope this guy is the first or second tutorial boss, like you have to beat him in order to leave the castle and explore the world
>>559111525Contrarians for the sake of being contrarians...
>>559115686No he is more likely one of the "lords" and he is the one that is closest to start so most will get to him first
>>559115408This is a reddit pasta isnt?
>>559115408>I command thee, kneel!what happens if you do a Kneel emote?
Post yfw cloth physics are DS3 tier and not BB tier
>>559115408hmm. I just noticed that this is the guy from the first trailer.
>>559103057Shut the fuck up you cunt
>>559095237Based. This game is going to be for trannies and try hard niggers.
>>559116053Why is his arm inside another bigger arm?
>>559116310It's a weaponWatch the new trailer
>>559116310he's the arm guy
>>559116053plot twist, the "elden ring" is actually a person and this faggot got his hands on the left arm "piece"
The hype for Elden Ping is great proof of why we need classic fantasy games with classuc RPG/dungeon crawling mechanics but in 3D. Everyone are hungry for them. Not only because of From Software name. Exploring the world, the unknown, camping with bros, casting classy spells, eating antidotes, using spell scrolls etc. Fighting fucking dragons and fancy creatures. This shit.
uh oh, he said epic, scale, open world - arent all those red flag words?
>>559117219Not if you're a zoomer. These niggers keep buying every Ubisoft game
>>559114307>playing souls game with keyboard
>>559117219If you're a typical /v/ schizo then yeah, those are red flags, if you still enjoy video games then not really
>>559118556Yes. Enjoy not knowing where the enemies are
>>559118589You'll understand when you're older than 14, anonWhich epic Ubisoft open world is your favorite?
>>559111018Shut the fuck up you cunt
>>559118773Asscreed 2 or Odyssey
>>559118952Which viewpoint in AssO was your favorite?
>>559119061Don't know honestly, can't think of anything memorable
>>559113630Isn't the guy getting hit by the whip the enemy?
>>559095237>don't care.Then leave, faggot.
>>559103015This is definitely the player here with the flail.
>>559119525And your point is?
>>559119916Open world games are nothing but copypasted "content" in an empty world
>>559103534No, you imagined some stupid shit.
>>559094887I hope it's purely single player like Sekiro.
>>559119969And linear games have copy/pasted content in corridors
>>559120043That's a based opinion anon, but you're also fucking retarded. The trailer confirmed full co-op
>>559120092Cool how you changed the wording from "nothing but copypasted content" to "they have _some_ copypasted content" Thanks for conceding that AAA open world is shit
>>559120242I never said that though
>>559119884Looks more like some kind of prisoner that escaped and is beating a pussy ass knight to me
>>559120359>>559120092>linear games have copy/pasted content
>>559094887Is is actually going to be co op or some shit summoning system that only gives credit to the host.
>>559120397Nope, I still haven't said anything about open world games so far
>>559104943Yeah, remember all the dragons, giants and valkyries in Bloodborne?
>>559120632You implicitly accepted my assertion that they're nothing but copypasted content because you tried to attack linear games ineffectually insteadLast (you), I'm not gonna sit here and go through the entire argument again with some 14 year old
>>559094887so it's a souls zelda ? Fuck. I mean it will be loved by souls audience I guess. But i'll pass.
>>559117219I'm personally worried about seamless and "staggering sense of scale".
>>559120795"huge open world" isn't the main point of Zelda, unless you're a zoomer who only played the worst one
>>559094887Looks like dark souls with coop.Why did they say this was not a another dark souls game, when its literally dark souls with coop?
>>559107145You can jump normally with the horse too, as seen in combat with a dragon boss. This little circle thing here just seems to give you more height.
>>559120916Because it's technically a different setting, so they're technically right! Who cares if it's the exact same gameplay, chud
I'm gonna buy a ps5 in 2 years for this
>>559102924If Skyrim had Souls gameplay it would have been the greatest game of all time.
>>559120890but Spirit Tracks doesn't have a huge open world.
>>559120742I only accepted your assertion in your head though, you are literally making up an argument as we go, is this the power of OPEN WORLD BAD schizos?
>>559103259pvp is the worst part of souls games. i dont even understand why they woundnt choose any other game that has far superior pvp battles. the combat in souls is simplistic, it makes no sense to play pvp
>>559115163>what is shadow tower
>>559121149dunno, never heard of it until now
I'm worried there might not be ultra great weapons because I dont see how you'd use them while horseback riding.
>>559121090Just don't reply to contrarian virgins anon, their delusions know no bounds.
>>559120890The fact that I'm fed up with souls clones and genre in general doesn't make me a zoomer, unless you're complete arrogant retard.
>>559121565You think "huge, seamless" means Zelda. You are a zoomer
>>559106796Meh, there are large areas in previous souls games like the forest area in DS1 DLC and the swamp below blighttown. You just had to wander around and get a feel for the place. I could see From just leaving you to do the same in this game, with landmarks giving you a sense of direction.
>>559121103have you ever considered that your personal view isn't objective and people can things that you dislike?Imagine that. Crazy, eh?
>>559121103t.filteredSouls pvp is expressive and creates uniquely fun situations because it's an asymmetrical free for all in a wide area with enemies and uneven teams thrown into the mix, instead of a sanitised arena situation.
>>559116303>This game is going to be for trannieselaborate
>>559110510good choice. i wish i didnt watch it because its spoilery on terms of bosses. wont watch any further trailer anymore for sure
>>559121663>have you ever considered that your personal view isn't objectiveHello rebbit
My friend don't play these games because he doesn't like to keep dying and dying and again.Yesterday he mentioned that he always find the games pretty cool, but not for him.Is there a way to play DS1 in it's entirety in coop?I finished the game a dozen times but never messed with the mp aspect. I guess if I was playing with him he would be happy.
>>559121916Shouldn't be a problem in the remaster. He will have to beat Ass and Taurus Demon on his own
>>559095237Based but also pointless contribution to the thread
>>559121756that soundslike someone trying to explain how playing a moba is more complex than starcraft. i am no pvp fag but any fighting game, for honor etc is a much better pvp game if you want depth. souls combat is easy to master and thats probably why people like it. its easy to beat opponents that dont give a shit about pvp
>>559121878>no argumentHello jaded virgin
>>559122149>dude it's less complex because I'm not pointlessly hitting 30 keys a second
>>559121995Oh, this won't be a problem, he did this when the game released.Amazing to know, thank you very much anon!
>>559122362As soon as you get to Solaire, you can do co-op. And in the Remaster, you can set passwords and stuff to always play with each other, without needing a mod
>>559113630How is it actually possible to make a game uglier than your last one?
The Berserk comparisons are interesting because it actually follows kind of a similar throughline now. Dark Souls was the more lowkey dark fantasy from the early parts that focused on demons and shit, while Elden Ring now is the latter parts of Berserk, the more high fantasy magical trees and elves stuff.
>>559122428Thank you for this, anon, knowing that is possible I can look the ins and outs to explain to him.
>>559094887>open worldI cannot imagine that this is going to be a good game. But I hope to be proven wrong.
>>559122960>he can't even imagine it
>>559094887It'll be linear and that will cause a catastrophic meltdown across /v/.
>>559113630Everything looks fine here. Dodge rolls should have i-frames, imagine how useless they would be against bosses with huge weapons and fast attacks if you had to get physically out of the way. The only viable option would be to lame with bows or spells.The whip probably can't be angled up or down. It would be useless if it couldn't even reliably hit an enemy who was in end lag right in front of you after a heavy attack.Making it work the other way might make the game look more "realistic", but it would make the gameplay much worse.
>>559122149You're a one dimension NPC. There are more reasons to play videogames than just to compete in the most tightly balanced 1on1 competitive setting. Which isn't what Chivalry is known for anyway, if that's all you think PvP is about you should progress straight to playing Street Fighter.Souls PvP is fun because it isn't competitive. Because no competitive game lets me drop into a world of 3 casual players trying to progress through a single player game and fight them 3v1 for pure fun.And while "depth" is nothing to do with the argument I was making, there is plenty of depth to Souls pvp that isn't found in Chivalry, since Chivalry is a game which makes spacing and movement mostly redundant in favour of point blank timing mixups. If you had enough gaming experience to appreciate the appeal of both then you wouldn't make such brainlet replies.
>>559123601Thanks friend, that's exactly what I was thinking of when I made that post
>>559102506i hope not pussy ass faggot nigger, why ruin the game for yourself with three summons
>>559111018Fromsoft mount and blade would be huge though
>>559108605I hope we get a wildcard faction for PVP like Moundmakers againHelping and hurting in equal measure at launch in DS3 was the most fun I've had in multiplayer in these games, until newbs just started ganking purples on sight
>>559102506Yes bro it only took them 12 years!
>>559123753I never got that, but I never cared about PVP and didn't play DS3 on release eitherWouldn't they just instantly notice that they can lockon to you?
>>559120098>The trailer confirmed full co-opwhere?
>>559105381fluid 30fps, it's how immersive games are meant to be played dumb zoomerthe video game industry is getting smarter and is now natively using a hybrid of 30fps for immersion and pacing and quick bursts of 60fps during very fast actions sequences which don't require quality
>>559123753>Helping and hurting in equal measure at launch in DS3 was the most fun I've had in multiplayer in these gamesthis>tfw a random purple invader bro actually showed me how to do the humanity puzzle in TRC
>>559123671Because some people have friends and want a good coop game to play there arent that many amazing coop games
>>559121878They aren't wrong.
>>559123885Where they showed the summons
>>559123885pic rel + they show 2 summons in the trailer
>>559107781sekiro is like the bottom of the barrel of From in generalwhen it comes to environments it had like 2-3 nice areas
>>559124086>>559123983those two looks like "npc allies" from one of the "allied kingdoms"
>>559116638Would explain why the dude in the original trailer was coming apart at the seams, literally. The ring is tied to him somehow and by shattering it, he shattered himself
>>559122149>>559123219Oh wait, you didn't even say Chivalry, you said fucking For Honour, babbies first fighting game for 5IQ console peasants that devolves combat to a 3 way game of simon says. Disregard my post, you aren't worth the reply.
>>559124202anon stop being a nigger, it's 1 google search away https://www.gamesradar.com/uk/elden-ring-co-op-multiplayer-confirmed-for-up-to-four-players/
>>559124202I think that too but it doesn't matter. coop is literally confirmed on the bandai website, fromsoftware website and the press pack which all state 1 - 4 players.
it doesn't surprise me people are excited for elden ringentire IPs are built on repetitiveness (mobas, mmos) so i guess the human mind doesn't really need anything new, as long as it works
>>559124584>I enjoy thing but I can only enjoy it once I never want it again after that>I also do not want things similar to it in any way I must find a totally new thing to like Are people fucking retarded I hate this board I wish I could leave
>>559105095Is that autism?
>>559124954just contrarians anon. Don't give them (you)'s
>>559124954>some guy presents an extreme for shitposting purposes>noooo, what about this other extremeGood job. I wish you could leave too
>>559104979You are a fucking retard dude. It's your right to be of the opinion that graphics don't need to be better than DS3, that doesn't change the fact they are always behind the competition. And Elden Ring looks worse than Sekiro right now
>>559106216First boss in the game, after killing him we get the mountmy dad work at Nintendo
>>559122432It has to run on PS4 and it's open world.
>>559095426I tend to make my first build a dex build in souls games. Given the horse combat I may see about going for some kind of samurai-esque katana/curved sword + dex spear for horse combat build.
it looks like shit, and that's a good thing!
>>559123920You do that after you clear the game by yourself for the first time
>>559122149I don't want depth I want fun.I invade in senns fortress and I don't even kill anyone, ever. I just run around spooking them and making them fall to their death. Sometimes I'll be cheeky and smack them once and run.
>>559114504>FROM is an AA studio, not AAAlol
>>559103091I think it's more about that feeling of discovery when first getting to know the layout of the map. One of the most unique souls experiences is when you first play through an area and have no idea what's going on or what to expect.It's certainly a feeling I'd want to preserve for Elden Ring, but at the same time the prospect of having a bro to do co-op with and you both discover and explore the world for the first time together could lead to a very unique sense of adventure as well.
>>559099093are those double-sided arms?
>>559126086I still hate that place to this day. I just run through as quick as possible
>>559126286Objectively correct. Sorry that you're too retarded to know the difference.
>>559094887Why dont they just use ue4/5? There engine relies on super outdated technology.
>>559106568I really want another armored core too man, but the souls genre just won't stop making them money
>>559125778>summerfags posting their favourite e-celeb
>>559107145Set climbing points suck. I really hope it's not that.>>559110426Something in between SotC, DD and BotW would be awesome.
