Elden Ring trailer breakdown thread.I'll post some of the screenshots and notes from the trailer that I've taken.
Here let me break it down for you its just dark souls but with a horse in an open world
In the opening we see a girl find the player character seemingly unconscious. She's riding "our" mount. It appears to be the first time we meet her, so we probably weren't giving her a ride, and it's she who provides the player character with the steed.
>>559113471We're still spamming this meme?
>>559113471FPBP. From trannies need to GTFO.
An overview shot of the "first" area of the game.In the background we can see some of the major landmarks, including a castle, a broken bridge and a couple of towers. The Erdtree is looming over the whole area.
>>559113398Dark souls 4
>>559113747But also, further in the back there's a tall cliff with a structure on top of it, which shaped kind of like a "goblet".
>>559113836Next shot, featuring a creature that looks sort of like Emil from Nier. Notice the tower in the background. It seems like we're still in the "first" area.
bump for you
>>559113931This seems to be a different location. We can see a few soldiers stationed along some fortifications on the way to a huge caldera in the background. There seem to be steam or smoke rising from the caldera. The Erdtree is not seen in this shot, but there are some banners around which seem to depict it. There's also another tall ghostly banner(?) on the right.
>>559114239Cut to a different area, which we'll call "temple of the golden order" for now. In the center we can see the same image as the Elden Ring logo. Well, not exactly the same. This one has wavy lines radiating down from the "elden ring" on it, which the game logo is missing.Under it there's a sculpture of a person (woman?) surrounded by three canines. You just know.The pillars around the area seem to have some bones, like ribcages, embedded into them.Wyvern like creatures are seen flying around, as the pieces of the destroyed buildings are floating through the air.
>>559114516Some "hollow" villagers are weeping around a bonfire. It's raining, and the smoke is coming from the bonfire, but the villagers do not move. At all. As if frozen in time. Unless From just fucked up their animations. But either way, the weather effects are in.
>>559114656The player character is seen looking into the distance from a cliff. Across the sea(?) we can see a bright light source. Could it be the Sun or is it the Erdtree seen from a great distance?
>>559114809A new area. A valley covered in mist. Another castle is seen in the distance. As well as a destroyed church(?) and a very tall tree on the left.
>>559115029Another shot of the same area, but from a different PoV. The player is getting ready to perform some platforming on horseback.
>>559115029>>559115140those trees in the distance don't look good at all, they need to change it.
>>559115140Same area. The very bottom of the valley in front of the castle. A huge four legged stone creature or golem can be seen roaming through the area. A bell suspended between its legs. It can also appears to be carrying a building on its back.
>>559115296Two giants, pierced through their chest and chained are pulling a carriage. Judging from the "goblet" like structure on the cliff in the background, we appear to be back in the "first" area.
>>559115296>>559114239these have the samme jagged rocks
>>559115528thats right, nice one anon
>>559114516The bones are from creatures like the one you see on >>559113931 you blind retard
>>559115449An indoors shot. Arms and feet are hanging from the hooks under the ceiling. A portrait of a warrior is hanging on the wall. The warrior seems to be either wearing a cape decorated with a fur of a skinned creature, or the creature may be his animal companion, standing behind him and leaning over his shoulder.
>>559115794The player character is climbing a ladder (ladders confirmed!) in a cave. On the ground there's something that appears to be a deflated jellyfish creature with humanoid face on it, or a piece of skin flayed from a giant's face.
>>559116000Another shot from (the same?) cave. Torches confirmed.
>>559116163The player is fighting a multi-limbed creature wearing a crown in a some sort of crypt like location. The player is trying to block the creature's body slam attack by gripping his weapon with both hands...
>>559116330...It seems to be quite effective, as the player is able to counter attack. Interestingly, together with blood particles a flash of light can be seen as the creature is struck down, enabling the player to perform a visceral riposte attack next.
>>559115794reveal trailer also had this dismembered arm motif
>>559115717And how do you know that you stupid faggot?
Random observations>trailer spoils like a dozen (minor?) bosses, either they showed too much or the game must be packed with hundreds of them>a lot of the trailer content/fights seems to take place around that glowing yellow tree open hub area(?), hopefully it's just an early area>combat style seems to vary between classic souls, bloodborne and sekiro / will you have to choose a style or will you be able to switch, have to chose a skill tree etc?>was to be expect but a lot of content does seem like rehashed souls - bonfire, multiplayer phantoms, gothic cathedral/church/castle/graveyard/catacombs/giant trees/ruins/crooked towers etc, waifu in black, dragons, bringing back bosses with different phases>you can tell which bosses are just roaming the open field and which are major encounters>most bosses looking like humanoids again, some offbeat designs like giant hand boss or walking pots but would have been nice to see more variety/mythological inspired creatures>dark souls 2 torch is back>as expected, the "open field" looks... empty. like botw fields>shadow of the colossus vibe at the beginning of the trailer before it focused more on combat - giant turtle boss with the bell might be climbable?>armors/weapons look on point but nothing surprising except in that encounter with/taming the mononoke horse(?), looks like wolverine claws and an executioner mask?? - the sword spell turning it blue was nice, but magic looks like it's still the same as before
>>559116498We see another huge castle. Judging from the architecture style and the color palette, it's different from the other two we've already seen in the "first" area, and in the misty valley.
>caravan>stone giant with hanging bell>outpost with soldiers and bannerI have a bad feeling that these are early stage red flags for open world checklists.
>>559116660But the player is confronted by the castle's guardian... dropping down on him seemingly out of nowhere.
>>559116837The guardian has cancerous horn growths on his face and other parts of the body. Including a scorpion-like tail.
>>559116830Not sure what you mean by checklist
>>559116960This time the player uses a shield to block the attack, instead of using the two handed weapon grip to guard.
>>559117009>OUTPOST CLEARED: 1/69
>>559117067The guardian can conjure various weapons made of light, like a giant hammer or throwing daggers. The player is seen dodging the latter with the tried-and-true dodge roll. A familiar "fog wall" can be seen barring the entry to the castle.
>>559117229However, the player can also turn his sword into a large magical blade. It's unclear if the weapon itself is magical, or the player can use a spell with any weapon.
Good thread, please continue
>>559113471You will never be a woman
>>559117352When exploring the open world the player can use magical "jump pads" when mounted to reach high places.
>>559114809Majula bros were going home
Elden Ring seems to be higher fantasy than Dark Souls.
>>559117469This particular one seems to be located in the misty valley area, as we can see the ruined "church" and the huge tree landmarks in the background.
>>559117507This, it feels more high fantasy, that said you can sort of see how the darkness is creeping in, maybe thats part of the lore and the world.Hope the environments don't become samey by the end.
>>559117572The player can utilize the momentum of his galloping steed to perform a devastating dismounting jump attack.
>>559115029Hadn't noticed the church before, nice. It gives you an idea of how the map will be designed, with tall landmarks in the distance. I think it's the church where you fight 3 guys, 1 guy with the 'father' like mask (some kind of priest)
>>559113471Lots of people are interested in this game and are going to play it. If you don't want to and have no interest because you think it's more of the same thing that you already don't like, there are dozens of other threads to go on, there are dozens of other boards and hundreds of other video game forums. Maybe if you had an original joke or really had a funny way to dunk on fans you could contribute something to the thread for a laugh, but this just reeks of desperate depression lashing out at any happiness anybody else can get, even something as simple as a video game that looks fun.
>>559117676The player is resting at a bonfire during nighttime. The silhouette of the tower in the background suggests that we're still in the "first" area, which we previously only seen during the day. The game appears to feature a real time day/night cycle.The giant moon is seen in the sky, but so far it's unclear if the daylight provided by the Sun, or the Erdtree, which light dims at night.
>>559117917I wonder, if some bosses/enemies will have like a different moveset depending on the time of day you face them.
>>559117917A lycanthrope knight howling at the thundering sky. The broken bridge in the background suggests we're still in the "first" area. Also, the game might feature a dynamic weather system.
>>559118121The player uses an arcane cube to summon some blue phantoms.
>>559115717Show some manners
>>559118062If the game has dynamic time of day and weather then changing enemy behaviour or spawns depending on that seems a natural gameplay mechanic.
>>559118219The pavement on the road looks the same as on the road the giants were pulling the carriage on. So looks like we're STILL in the "first" area.Also, notice the weapon the nearest phantom is holding. Shotels confirmed.
Things that looked good>lighting>horse mobility and summoning>build varietyThings that looked bad>combat has barely changed>horesback combat looks derivative>too much time spent traversing on horseback>potential open world busywork barracks and landmarksThings that I dont want to judge yet>enemy variety and boss fights>art direction>map>voice acting and lore>difficulty
>>559118407Whips and bows are also in.
>>559118121The lycanthrope knight is us, we will be able to transform into one somehow just like Gutz.
>>559118508A giant fire breathing dragon is sitting on top of some buildings or giant coffin-like objects. This might be inside the caldera area, judging by the looks of the stone walls behind it.
>>559118554I also got the impression the werewolf was a player character since that whole segment of the trailer seemed to show various players.
>>559118554Doubt it. I seems way too big to be a player and there's already a theme of beastmen knights in the game.
>>559117172I doubt we'll see something like that. If fromsoft were the type we'd see it in Sekiro.
>>559118679Seems like the dragon can (must?) be fought on horseback. The player is seen holding a spellcasting catalyst in their hands.The sky is dark red. Is that due to another "weather" effect, or does it change based on the player's progression through the main quest?
>>559118860The player avoids the shockwave sent by the dragon's "lightning stake" attack by jumping over it. And not just jumping, but in fact, double jumping on their mount.
>>559117172Yeah I don't know how they'll structure this, the free roaming foes has me a bit worried because meticulous 'on rail' enemy placement was an integral part of what made souls design so good. Open world seems so antithetical to souls design to me, which is what has me very worried but also want to see how they'll approach it, how to railroad the player towards locations, enemies or objectives. They've shown the caravan can be approached via stealth, a horseback duel, there are various soldiers around... But it's not attacking you first. In all the other souls games, enemies are always the aggressive ones. So why attack it? I can assume perhaps you are given more traditional side quests by npcs, or does it carry a key or a treasure that's maybe necessary to advance in the main quests? This kind of stuff will completely change the core design, they will create a new formula from scratch and have to experiment, some of it will be failures... The combat animation may scream ds4 but I think we're in for a lot of surprises.
>>559118121>the game might feature a dynamic weather systemit's already officially confirmedhttps://en.bandainamcoent.eu/elden-ring/news/new-adventure-awaits-first-elden-ring-gameplay-revealed-bandai-namco-entertainment
I was extremely disappointed when I first watched the trailer and have since done a complete 180. This looks unbelievably good
>>559117469Vertical shortcuts maybe
>>559119017The player is fighting another lycanthrope knight boss inside the "golden order temple". Curiously enough, this time to avoid the boss's attack, the player does not roll, but instead uses an evasive move similar to those from Bloodborne and Sekiro. Or the dagger weapon art from DS3.
>>559117676That's the one moment from the trailer that has me worried. Looks like flat empty open world garbage with zero thought to enemy placement, no particular atmosphere, etc. The worst of open world design.
>>559119340And not just that. The player can also jump over the sweeping attacks, like in Sekiro.
>>559113471fpbpfromdrones are the fucking worstno wait atlusdrones are worse, but clone enough
>>559118062>get the werewolf curse>turn into a bloodthirsty beast during full moon nightsKino
>>559119447In this shot we can see the "valkyrie" from the reveal trailer putting on her prosthetic right arm. But now we can also notice that her right leg seems to be prosthetic as well.
>>559119591As she impales the player on her extremely long curved sword, we can see that the fight is taking place in a field of flowers at the edge of a dark underground(?) area, covered with giant tree roots. Also, notice that the roots are slightly covered in snow.
>>559119791Meanwhile inside the giant castle the player confronts a "lord". The lord is seen sprouting a multitude of cancerous limbs growing from his shoulders, and even extra legs. He's wielding a pair of greataxes. The axe has a golden engraving of a lion, same as the banners hanging from the castle walls.
>>559119017Sky is red but you can see the yellow tree still
>>559120023Another player character, holding a two-handed greathammer, is being attacked by a fire breathing wyvern. Unlike the giant lightning-wielding dragon, this beast only has four limbs.
>>559113398Seems like "grace" will be either the souls/echoes equivalent or the humanity/insight equivalent in this game, going off the way they mention it in picrelated. I'm hoping the interconnectedness of the underground tombs and whatnot will bring to life what they tried to do with the chalices in bloodborne and make the world feel truly interconnected and not just a fast travel collectathon.
>>559119340nigger thats literally just quickstep
>>559120227In the background, right under the wyvern's wing you can make out the silhouette of the "goblet" building on the cliff. So it seems like we're STILL in the "first" area, which appears to be packed with various events and enemies.
>>559118860Since demons souls I've always thought killing dragons in from games was lacking.Plinking at them with arrows, killing them in a cutscene, fighting them in a small arena where they're grounded for most of the time and you just roll around swinging at their heels.To me a proper battle with a dragon takes place over a huge area.Now that you have a horse that can double jump I hope they can deliver something like that.
>>559120376And speaking of which. Here we see the player fighting an enemy with literally a goblet of fire on his head. Could it be related to the "goblet" building, or is it just a coincidence?
I can see OP is excited about the game, which makes me happy. I really want others to enjoy stuff I like, this is what gaming is all about.
>>559120494Anyway, back to the "first" area. There's MORE content in it still, like this giant axe using golem.
>>559120594Finally, a change of scenery. A gothic cathedral like building, wreathed in magical energies. It's a dark rainy night, with no Erdtree in sight.
>>559120751Inside the "cathedral" the player goes for a backstab, sneaking up on a group of enemies. Literally. The game seems to feature a dedicated sneaking mechanic, like Sekiro.
>>559120893Finally, the catalyst in action. The player casts a "soulstream" like spell against a free roaming "giant", like one of those that were chained to the carriage. This one seems to be intelligent enough to use a sword in combat.
>>559121061Meanwhile, another player character is fighting a mysterious elk-like beast in an cave, surrounded by glowing animal silhouettes.The player is holding a claw weapon in each hand.
>>559121220The "queen" and her knight in front of a painting of a king. They don't seem to be hostile. For now...
>>559120023Something I noticed - the non-golden greataxe he's holding is literally the Earth Seeker from the DS3 DLC. Note that he slams the golden axe downwards the same way as the Milwood Knights use it, hinting that it might have the same earthquake power.
>>559114239>>559121318On that note, the banner from this field seems to be similar to the pattern on the Millwood set too.
>>559121317In a snowy field a player engages a giant disembodied monster hand. The player seems to be using pyromancy to bathe the enemy in a stream of fire.
>>559121485Seems at some point in the game there appears a cyclops.tags: unusual pupils
>>559121485Nice skeleton rock there.
>>559121596A human male, wearing nothing but a loincloth is being grabbed by a giant glowing hand. He doesn't seem to be afraid of it.All things considered, this most likely takes place shortly after character creation.
>>559121710this is your level up maiden now
>>559121710The player is engaged in combat with an enemy sprouting angle-like wings. If you look closely you'll recognize it's the queen's knight.
>>559121867No, you could see a woman with a hood in the trailer, that's the level up maiden
>>559116568>>a lot of the trailer content/fights seems to take place around that glowing yellow tree open hub area(?), hopefully it's just an early areaI could imagine the tree being the center of the game world with the different regions being arranged more ore less circularly around it, possbly being visible from all of them.
>>559119447This doesn't seem to be a "wolf" knight, the mouth is more akin to that of a lion.
>>559121220that pc is probably this guy, which confirms some kind of pvp or co-op
>>559121967Meanwhile, the lord's already monstrous form changes to the worse. His disfigured left arm now has an actual fire breathing dragon head growing out of it. Possibly during the transition to the second phase of the fight.And that's all from me. Thanks to everyone who bumped the thread.
>>559122170Thanks based autist.
>>559122034that would make sense.I assume they won't have a map, GPS, objective markers etc then having the world tree always be visible as landmark would be logical game design wise.
>>559121220>>559122093Probably the starting area, you're a prisoner escaping and you tame the horse in a fight
>>559122170Got an analysis of the giant fire-breathing head?
>>559122961no i mean the guy with the flail. see the mc on the right is emoting, and the guy with the flail can be seen fighting that elk boss
>>559122973We see him stroking the head of the same dead dragon earlier in the trailer. And this boss might actually be the person in that >>559115794 painting, and the dragon his old battle buddy. So we might have a Storm/Nameless King situation on our hands here.Or, judging by the burn marks on the walls, maybe the castle was under attack by the dragons, and the boss just utilizes one of the dragon bodies lying around to graft another bioweapon onto his arm.
>>559123156It might be simpler than you think. The flail/claw person might be the PC, and the "emoting" guy is an enemy.Or the flail guy might an enemy type, and they can just drop their gimp helmets.
>>559123731but that same emoting guy is featured in most of the trailer
>>559123973No, he's not.
>>559124240is this not him?
this is really cringe. what happened to FROM fans? Demon's Souls and Bloodborne was nothing like this. making their games multiplat was a huge mistake
>>559124990Nope. This one doesn't have a cool cape. The helmet is the same though. Must be another case of the PC armor sets getting the short end of the stick again, compared to the NPC coutnerparts.
>>559120023I'm not sure those the limbs have grown out of him - We see a man who looks very similar (Might even be the same guy at earlier point in time) who more or less seems to "wear" a cut-off arm on top of his own arm like a sleeve.Couple that with the golden knight who puts herself together, I suspect a running theme in ER is that some people can more or less frankenstein their own bodies into chimerea-esque creatures. We see a lot of different bosses that have cobbled pieces wolf heads, scorpion tails and humans on their person.
>>559123549he's got six fingers
>>559126234The dude's got like a dozen arms. An extra finger is the least of his issues.
>>559122029Excuse me sir, but the correct term is "Leveling Waifu"
>>559122029>>559127270A challenger appears.
>>559114239desu this is the only location that I did not like, it felt a bit too generic with that mountain
>>559116568>>trailer spoils like a dozen (minor?) bosses, either they showed too much or the game must be packed with hundreds of themthat's what I'm hoping, because I really hope the final game won't just be those bosses + a couple of extra secret bosses and a final boss
>>559127560That statue will probably be "Pray to buff up enemies" type of thing>>559127270My deepest apologies
>>559127560Or is that not a statue, but a stone mask person with god awful textures from 15 years ago?
>>559127987That's not a statue, that's a person wearing a mask. Statues don't wear clothes. The texture quality and lighting seem to be really shitty in this scene.
>>559113398permission to change the phrase breakdown to breackbuck sir, effective immediately
>>559113398I'm not much into FROMsofts shit. Doubt I'll even give it a look on jewtube.
>>559113471Name a video you like and I'll come up with just as half-assed a comparison.
>>559125297Or maybe it's just the "elite" version of the set that you can get later in the game.
>>559125435perhaps it's some kind of curse who is responsible for that
>>559118219The artificial, 2001-obelisk-like appearance of the cube makes me think that a sci-fi twist is coming as many anons have already speculated (the elden ring as something that controls the orbit of the planet etc.)
>>559117917I wonder if this is an actual bonfire as we have known it, or something purely aesthetic? I hope they add in plenty of animations like that, where we can just sit beside fires with bros or lean against trees like Guts trying to catch a break after a night slaying abominations
>>559129230Well, it's obviously artificial, because someone had to craft it. But it doesn't look hi-tech at all to me. It looks like it's made of stone with magical runes carved on the surface.
>>559129360I don't think it's a DS-like bonfire that acts as your spawn point and respawns enemies. But you can probably rest at bonfires to fast-forward time.
>>559129480idk im just spitballing. that's what it made me think of. if a sci-fi twist is coming, it would fit. I really hope it's coming so that the "just dark souls 4 lol" notion is dispelled
honestly I just hope the game will be challenging¨Sekiro was really challenging because it introduced a whole new different combat type.But with ER and going back to the whole dodge hit combat.. it just seems so simpleJust dodge the enemy attacks and wait for an opportunity to attack back, I don't know what from could add to that to keep it challenging
>>559129676I wouldn't mind a sci-fi Souls-like game, or technomagic settings in fiction, but I don't really like when "magic is actually science" is used as a twist.
>>559129676>I really hope it's coming so that the "just dark souls 4 lol" notion is dispelledMe too, certainly could be an interesting twist to it all.
>>559118860>Seems like the dragon can (must?) be fought on horsebackIf they haven't nailed the horse combat fights like these might be painfully shit if that is the case.
>>559129745Sekiro was not as challenging on its own as it seemed at first, when you were just not used to the new combat system and tried to play it like DS.Anyway, we've already seen in the gameplay trailer, that ER offers more options in combat other than rolling. So I'm personally already reassured by the new footage that it will not be just DS4 in an open world.
>every boss is hugeoh boy i sure love fighting giant bosses in souls gamesmy favorite bosses are bed of chaos and ancient dragon
>>559130330midir was good
>>559130330Hopefully we can climb the bosses this time.
>>559113747Take a look at the bridge. The tower there looks like it's probably important somehow, but we probably won't be able to access it at first. My guess is that you'll only be able to get across once you get the double jump for your mount.
>>559119179I wish there are swimming and climbing mechanics
>>559120594What's exciting about enemies like this is you can hopefully find them randomly around the world where they might be hard as fuck, but felling them early could net you some great shit like the weapon he's holding if you're going for a STR build.
>>559127560Statue man looks like he is receiving a surprise blowjob.
>>559114239Anyone notice that wierd thing on the right side? It looks like there's some ghostly giant banner or tower sticking out of the ground
>>559129745You could always do a lvl1 run as your first playthrough, guaranteed difficulty.
>>559129480Cubes in the occult signify simulation and advanced technology. If Miyazaki and his team are into this, or at least put some references here and there, a sci-fi twist wouldn't be too far fetched.
>>559130734>you can hopefully find them randomly around the worldOr they can find (You)...
Dark wraith with armor of thorns and dark hand?
>>559119368Hmm I agree empty open worlds suck but it might serve it's purpose if it has a reason. Death stranding had an empty open world but most of the time I never felt bored traversing it. Let's just hope Miya thought hard and well about this
>>559131072It's barbed wire hodrik
Why does this game looks way worse than the Demon souls remake when it's suppose to be newer?????
>>559131072>>559131160I wonder if the wire is actually real, or is it a spell effect?
>>559113398>>ORANGE AND TEALEVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
>>559116568There's a screenshot which confirms that flails will be in the game
>>559131079Death Stranding world wasn't empty, because the very landscape itself was content, every single step. Well, until you unlocked the zip-lines.
>>559131160You seem right. Really similar armor with barbed wire on top.
>>559113471FPB FUCKING PTRANNIES BTFO'D GET REKT YOU WILL NEVER BE A WOMAN, YOU CAN'T CONCEIVE A CHILD YOUR MUTILATED DICK ISN'T A VAGINA AND EVERY MALE OR FEMALE IS GOING TO REJECT YOU THE MOMENT THEY FOUND OUT THAT YOU ARE PART OF 42% CROWD LOL
>>559131202Because DS wasn't on PS4/XBO
>>559131050I remember reading that Dark Knights in Dks1 were supposed to roam the lands and track you.Maybe we'll get a new and more effective Pursuer enemy.
>>559131018>can finally dab on noobs with my twink character that has railguns, jetpacks and heatseeking googles to instantly track people down LOOKS LIKE KINO IS BACK ON THE MENU BOYS
>>559113471I will now buy your game.
>>559131202This game was made to run on the ps4 and xbone.Sorry but this isn't the next gen Souls you are looking for.
>>559131050Like the chaser guy in DS2 except he is persistently moving around the world following some behaviour rather than being spawned in.
>>559131474A working "pursuer" enemy would be great. I love that concept in vidya.
>>559120023>>559125435Made he's some kind of Frankenstein's monster, with different limbs stitched to his body.Might explain the body parts seen in >>559115794.
>>559113471I don't see the problem?
>>559118407What if there is only 1(uno) area?
>>559131050Imagine chiselling away at this dude with a dirk for an hour as a level 10 lol. Can't fucking wait bros
>>559117917Take a close look at that "moon" I wonder if it's going to be revealed to be someting more. Look at the texture of it. Almost looks like it's made of multiple ring layers of strata. Either that, or it's actually a gas giant with different types of gas
>>559131669No, we've seen at least 3 or 4. But most footage in the gameplay trailer seems to be captured in the same area.Elden Ring might be an "open world" game, but I'm sure we'll still get the usual motley patchwork map with different biomes.
>>559118407I don't think we're in the same area just because the pavement is in. I think there's probably a road that leads through the whole world where you can encounter those giants pulling carriages
>>559131796look like a magic sigil on the moon.are we going to the moon?
>>559113471First of all, that's not even an issue or a criticism.Secondly, you're going to look about as retarded as the "cyberpunk is just GTA" crowd, stop hype fixating on nuances that make it a little similar to other games, it hardly equals the whole.You can compare anything to anything if you try hard enough.
You know, Omni did say that each biome would be it's own kingdom, but these kingdom seem very small
>>559118860That spellcasting catalyst looks an awful lot like a coiled sword to me and I wonder if it can be wielded like one
When do you think we'll get a Miyazaki interview again lads? I'm keen to hear more about how the open world etc is going to work now we've seen parts of it. I also loved the segment in the trailer with the horse riding across plains, and you hear these very subtle notes. I wonder if we'll have gentle ambient music fading in and out across zones rather than only boss fights and the hub?
>>559131796Could be concentric circles of a giant crater.
>>559128976Fuck imagine if upgrading your armour gives changes like capes and shit
>>559119447>>559119340Not a wolf knight, it's a lion and we see lion motif on various other stuff in the trailer
>>559132109>I wonder if we'll have gentle ambient music fading in and out across zonesWe got that with sekiro so I'm sure it will be brought back for ER
>>559131669omni leaks said something like "the game takes place multiple lands" iirc
>>559120494Look at that sexy fucking greatsword holy shit, I want it so bad
>>559132225You're probably right. At first I thought this was a were-lion too. But then I doubted myself because the snout was too long. But it does have a very defined :3 cat lip.
>>559132225It looks like it's mirroring the situation eith lothric or Fountainhead Palace, but instead of being obsessed with dragons or carps they are instead obsessed with lions
>>559120594What might be happening is that it isn't all in one area, but there will be multiple of these towers in the game.
>>559121967The knight here seems to be glowing slightly blue. Makes me wonder if this is some sort of blue sentinels thing. Maybe this will be some sort of pursuer boss that will attack players throughout the world that other players will be able to take control of?
>>559113398Don't spoil it to yourself so hard.
>>559121220This is my favorite boss previewed so far, hopefully it’s not a shitty Butterfly-esque fight like in DS1
>>559131412Yeah that's what I meant to say an empty open world might serve it's purpose
Imma be real disappointed if the old dude with the arms is the final boss and they spoiled his fight
>>559132531I don't think so. I'm guessing it's just a royal motif and that they have some lion guardians or something
>>559133258Have FromSoft EVER spoiled the final boss before release?
>>559121967Is it just me or does the helm look like the ruin sentinel helm from DS2?
>>559133352DS3 they did but it was sort of a twist, the "player character" they showed in promo material was the final boss
>>559133352They did in ds3, soul of cinder was literally put him on the cover art.
Is she Marika?
>>559133258It's probably the first Lord you fight
>>559121435I'm quite sure one of the das3 item description says the milwood knights are from a distant land that lost their tree or something like that.Cheeky sods. Milwood knights are 100% the elden ring reference in DaS3.
>>559133590But then, who's the Abyss Dragon?
>>559127560I feel that this might be a covenant leader, rather than the person who you level up at.Pic related is also someone who I feel may be a covenant leader, and might be located within the cathedral building pictured here >>559120751
>>559133508There's a possibility. But I don't think she is. Probably one of her demigod children, who have the pieces of the Elden Ring, and a major boss.
>>559132109I think the website says we'll hear more this summer so I'm guessing we'll get some interviews during or after E3Also gamescom is in August? I think so maybe more gameplay, this time with a HUDI'd like to see what the HUD looks like
Is this the Elite Knight Set?
>>559133352dark souls 1
>>559133863that sword looks sexy as fuck
>>559133863is that the moonlight sword
Only rewatched trailer twice. Pretty weak compared to others but with some great parts of course
>>559133508Nah, most likely one of the children of Marika.HerMister arm guyThe ginger knight from the cgi trailerAnd at least one more.Im mostly curious about the war though, are they currently in a stalemate and we will be the one who will break it? It would be neat i we could make an alliance with the demigods and get a different ending with each of them.
>>559113471But he's right. And the "open world" will be fucking garbage too.
>>559118062They won't in the final release but dataminers will find code related to it that was cut>>559118219Only good armor shown so far. Nice and simple.
>>559133352yes but they did it really nicely
>>559133863The elite knight set is in the promo art, if you look closely he is wearing a different closed helm, not the one featured mostly in the trailer.
>>559133932How about this one?
>>559134039>>559113398why are you naming all this promo stills with 4chan filenames lmao
>>559133451>>559133480>>559134260Oh yeah, you're right, I guess.
There's this thing which is either a boss or a mini-boss of sorts judging from the area the fight takes place in. Initially I thought this was just some floating head creature but after re-watching I noticed that it was actually some sort of siege weapon based on the wheels and cart that the head is attached to.
>>559134332He saved it from an elden ring thread retard
>>559134039Well... a lowly tranny... playing as a girl... I command thee... KNEEL!!!!
>>559134157>headcanonyou will never be a woman
>>559134460Tower shield and spears confirmed!Oh god no, not the turtle-n-poke meta again.
>>559122056Its nose looks closer to a wolf than a lion but I could be totally wrong
>>559127560>GREETINGS. I AM OSWALD OF CARIM
>>559134139The ginger knight is her, unless you're talking about the giant
Why does this dark souls aesthetic look so bland and uninspired. Like the architecture of these castles and stuff looks cool yet somehow overall it just looks boring.
>>559134332>>559134460oh now you're changing them thanks fromshills!
>>559134252>Only good armor shown so far. Nice and simple.I like the white hair thing in the player character but I wonder if it's like a Gael situation, Where the tarnished one (the one with white hair seen throughout the trailer) is the final boss we have to face.
>>559134332>>559134497They're not promo screenshots, newfriends. I've taken them myself from the trailer.
>>559120023>>559125435Same sort of hair, crown and green gown. I think this Lord has been cutting up people and grafting their bodies onto his own
>>559134460Reminds me of the arrow machine thing from demon's souls 4-1
>open world>shows like 15 bosses and mostly all of these areas show the same treeThis wont be as big as people are thinking it is
>>559134628I'd say that given the fact we have already seen an actual wolf knight pictured here >>559118121there's a good chance that this boss is a similar type of creature, more than likely a wolf in my opinion.
>>559115449Moon is big
>>559134756There's another "human centipede" in the crypt area, and it's wearing a crown too. The whole limb grafting seems to be one of the central themes of the game. Like the eyes were in BB, although we might never learn the reason behind it.
>>559134914I am thinking this as well but then again this had been in development since 2017
Giant ants is at least more interesting than spiders
>>559134939Yeah but at least they aren't exactly the same creature, the boss has gold rims on its armors
>>559134684>the giantThe giant was ginger too, and yeah i meant that guy.
>>559134981bb port confirmed?
>>559134756I think the exposed part under his armor looks like rolled up arms too, so he's literally just hundreds of arms wrapping around his tiny body
E-Eldenbros, will we be able to withstand the might of shazam?
>>559135069imagine the ant queen
>>559134628>hair looks worse than in BB and DS3Society has collapsed
>>559135069They don't look aggressive
>>559113471fpbp. No notes required, we know absolutely everything there is to know about the game
>>559135191>shazamthis meme makes no sense without cyberpunk why are u people still pushing it?
>>559113747>>559113836>>559113931>>559114239>>559114516>>559114656>>559114809>>559115029>>559115140>>559115296>>559115449>>559115794>>559116000>>559116073>>559116163>>559116330>>559116498>>559116517>>559116568You are genuinely mentally ill.
>>559134914This is what I'm really worried aboutThey might have spoiled a little bit too much of the game
>>559135223>It's gonna be the ant version of Quelaag
>>559135331Newfags who don't understand how shazamposting works. Let Shazam rest until witcher 4
>>559135257Shame, FS's cloth physics peaked at BB
>>559135191shazam already broke
>>559135374First time seeing fans ?
>>559127960I'm pretty sure only the dude with the many arms, the gru thing with the scorpion tail and the dragon were actual bossesThe red haired valkyrie could be a boss but could also be an NPC that kills you in a cutscene if you do a certain thingThe rest were regular enemies
So what do you guys think of the box art?
>>559134756Would be pretty funny if when we finally defeat him his "body" falls to pieces revealing that he's a scrawny manlet.
>>559136023Not my favorite but it works
>>559117172have you ever played a Fromsoft game before or do you just like acting stupid?
>>559136010The jumping wolf/lion knight that shits dark energy slashes all over the place was a boss too, I'm certain. So was the dragon.
>>559136023Much better than DS3 or DeS remake art
>>559136023I like the implications that the rings represent the kingdoms we'll explore and with the top ring as the final area, which i assume will be a different realm entirely.
>>559113398An open world is going to add nothing to this game but downtime and jank. From already figured out world design with DS1 then decided to never even attempt something like that ever again.
PS5 or PC?I don’t know if I want to deal with the cheat engine abusers then PC version will be filled with
For me it's the burger king looking dudes
>>559113398>notes from the trailer i’ve takenholy autism
I really hope the combat will be more of Sekiro+DS instead of same DS shit
>>559136023Its better than the average US box art (fucking sekiro, das3, das2, das1, des, all trash), but not as good as some JP box arts
>>559136439DS3 got a masterpiece box art in the end.
>>559136486i'll just play alone on pc
>>559136562You can jump in this game, so that's a plus.
>>559121596Looks like those photographs of a gas giant planet's polar region, more sci-fi foreshadowing?
>>559136486Definitely PS5Most active playerbaseNo hackersWill be 60fps cause crossgen
>>559136526>WHERES THE ELDEN RING>Sir this is a Burger King
I want classic elemental magic in ED.
>>559136794>PS5>most active playerbase
>people complaining about open world like there won’t be tons of dungeon-type areas filled with unlockable shortcuts and cramped hallways you people are seriously dumb, the open world is there to add scale, roaming bosses and environmental storytelling. if you think this is goi f to be like HZD and you’re going to open your map and slowly pick away at all the ‘points of interest’ you are an idiot, that’s antithetical to what From does
>>559136453Which will be at the top of the tree since the straight line between the circles is meant to represent the tree?
OP I hope you're a youtuber and make a video out of all your posts in this thread cuz this shit is about to get ripped off by one of those faggots in no time.
>>559136917PS4 playerbase as wellMost will have upgraded by then anyways
>>559136890What's ED, Baqua?
>>559136737Give me werewolf form alreadyAnd let me soul suck other werewolves
>>559129676>I really hope it's coming so that the "just dark souls 4 lol" notion is dispelledThat alone wouldn't change the huge parallels. Also it'd be closer to bloodborne which has a scifi twist in everything but name. Would be cool to fight a mech at the end, though.
>>559113687>>559117848>>559119448>>559131437>>559134157>>559135294BotW faggots getting scared by Elden Chad
>>559135374You are posting on 4chan, get off your high horse
>>559136965Editing a whole video is too much work. If someone actually makes the effort to do that - props to them. The trailer is in open access, and anyone can make the same simple observations I did.
Are there any recognizable landmarks in the trailer that would let us map out the positions of the areas in relation to each other
>>559131202It's the artstyle. DS3 has the same boring look to it.
>>559113471I don't see anything wrong with that
>>559113398Is it just one line that says "Dark Souls but with a horse mod and a reskin?"
>>559134693It the grease and grey filter.
>>559137174Be careful what you wish for.
>>559137434The giant tree The broken bridge The big volcano
>>559136737I hope it's a she, I'm in need of a wolfu
>>559125080>nothing like thisin what way? do you not remember Project Beast? of course not, you’re 12 and don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about
>>559136954Could be, but an anon here >>559131796points out that the "moon" have something more to it than we think considering it's prominence and its unusual shape. Like you said though, it could be the tree itself but i'd prefer for an unexpected.
>>559133508No. Marika is a queen and a god.This looks like a warrior woman, she has multiple prosthetic limbs and you fight her in some ruined grounds area. Not exactly queen material.
>>559134460This is my favorite enemy so far just look at this nigga
>>559122056Maybe multiple beastmen type knights around the world. I agree with you that this one looks more like a lion or big cat.
>>559137174>path of the dragon but with werewolvesDo it fromsoft
>finally have the opportunity to make Shadow of the Colossus with Dark Souls combat>get dark souls but you have to ride a horse between combat instead of just walking
>>559137615>>559131976Dragon's Dogma 2 bros, not like this... How did we let the soulsfags one-up us?
>>559135191Forced meme. Only worked for Cyberpunk because it actually turned out true, but /v/tards had to run it into the ground.
>>559137624>Marika is a queen and a god.>This looks like a warrior womanThose are not mutually exclusive. But I'm getting the impression that Marika the "Eternal" is no longer alive.
>>559136023Pretty generic and mediocre. Nothing special. Underwhelming and looks too similar to a Dark Souls box art.
>>559133258i'm pretty sure the redhead valkyrie is the second to final boss. She's likely the queen of the land
>>559136453Elden Ring 2 confirmed
>>559138020Bitch has "Eternal" in her title, what do you mean she's fucking dead?
>>559138038Better than this
>>559138039>baseless headcanon speculation/v/ has really fallen far.
>>559137875imagine if DD2 gameplay gets shown by capcom on monday
>>559138139I DOUBT YOU CAN EVEN IMAGINE
>>559134628looks like a tiger/jaguar to me
>everyone now worried that there are too few bosses and the game is too smallthe rampant speculation is insane, there is nothing to back that up. remember when BB took place entirely inside a Van Helsing-esque city fighting werewolves? yeaaaah
>>559137868>Shadow of the Colossus with Dark Souls combat>but you have to ride a horse between combatHave you ever seen Shadow of the Colossus?
>>559138139Sometimes you find etenirty in death. The undead are doomed to live for eternity
>>559136023great sense of atmosphere, but rather bland composition and texturing>>559136526>burger king confirmed 4th Elden Lord
>>559138141This wouldnt be as bad if they werent showing off one of the designs they literally massacred in it.
THE GREAT DEBATE
>>559134628Sabertooth lion wolf to me
>>559137543Yeah, it looks like a lot of the shots are from around the same general area, but in environments that look very different. Looks like you can go almost anywhere that you can see in this densely packed part of the world and find several different areas.
>>559137868But SotC is shit and Dark Souls combat wouldn't make sense in that context. Agreed on the open world red flag.
>>559138403the horse in SOTC was integral to solving some of the puzzles and the combat itself. in ER it's just a speed buff that gets you from point a to point b
>>559137868did you even play SoTC? half the game is just riding your horse around, but it’s cute that you pretend to know things
>>559131298It's real, you can see the player using his sword later and it has a bit of wire around the guard.
>>559138368>>everyone now worried that there are too few bosses and the game is too smallThe number of main bosses tends to be on the smaller side with each title, sekiro having the least of them.
>>559138368I remember that specific time in Bloodborne release when the collective of /v/ finally figured out the twist. I've seen so many threads with anons prefacing it with "why is there aliens in this fucking game?", hilarious as fuck.
>>559138549The red hair girl is fucking THICK in that shot where she impales you
>>559138549I want a male level up person
>>559138549Didn't we already have hooded lady in ds2 ?
>>559138663>it's just a speed buff that gets you from point a to point bMounted combat was shown.Jump attack from your horse-creature was shown.And we don't really now if it can't do more.Also if it eliminates fast travel, it will be kino.
>>559138769Only if it's a female (male).
>>559138874>she has a move where she sits on you
I hope they modeled GRRM to be a fat fuck boss in a wheelchair
>>559134460That's absolutely a representation of whatever that dead cave squid thing is. Eyes are even the same.
>>559138663Your point is literally disproven in the trailer, you'll more than likely need the horse to access certain locations as shown by the 'jump pad' pictured here >>559117469 and horseback combat is definitely gonna be necessary for at least two bosses.
>>559119017Notice on the back set of hooves there is a blue light, similar to the jump pads earlier
>>559138776Didn't we already have most of the trailer including the story in the previous soulsborne games?
>>559113471Where the fuck did all the Souls series haters come from. For all of my time here the biggest critics of the series were also the fans. People who hated DS3 played through it at least. Why do I have a sneaking suspension that all you faggots hating the trailer are western RPG faggots who never played beyond undead burg?
>>559139158yea dark souls 3 sucks and i really hate how much time i spent in it and i bet elden ring is going to be just as shitbut the other games i pretty good i like all of them
>>559139126Yep, on that screenshot is caught the moment of the double jump.
>>559116568There's nothing in the combat that suggests that it's a hybrid of the 3 souls game, it's 99% Dark Souls 3 up till the re-used animation. The only thing new is mounted combat, maybe jump attacks and counterattacks from Sekiro.
>>559138549Has top girl's VA been confirmed yet? I swear to god she sounds like yorshka from DS3
>>559138891it will be nerfed to hell and back unless it scales with weapon damage or something, mounted combat is always something of a joke in these open world games.Considering there are no towns or villages there will probably be warp points scattered around like the bonfires in previous games to fast travel to.
>>559139158/v/ hates popular things and videogames
>>559139407Pretty sure it's the same VA.
>>559139438Why wouldn't it scale with weapon damage? you're still using your weapon, just while on a horse.
>>559138723did it say how many children the queen had? and the only difference between a ‘main’ boss and others is usually the thematic impact, not necessarily a better fight. I mean look at DS1 where Seath and BoC are ‘main’ bosses based on story importance but lame as fuck fights. I wouldn’t worry about it, and the two(?) lords fights they’ve shown so far look good
>>559138993Memezacki isnt one for blatant self-inserts but man i would love to a fat fuck GRRM character somewhere hidden in the game.
>>559138751damn those were good times, I wish /v/ was still fun
>>559138751Bloodborne tricking everyone to believe it's about hunting beasts was one the best plot twists in the video games
So in this game we are a Tarnished right?
>>559113471With faggots like this seething all over the internet you just know Elden Ring is going to be a fucking master piece.
>>559139387yes, because you’ve played the game and know everything about it. that’s why people treat you like a retard
>>559113552It's hard to see but it looks like she also takes off her ring.
>>559139387Website says you can find weapons, spells and skills. So you probably can equip special moves or stuff.
>>559139387Watch the trailer again or read op's comments
>>559139158The majority of detractors popping up as of late are undoubtedly just spewing contrarian rhetoric in order to garner attention. It's a game that an overwhelming amount of people are anticipating to play so it makes sense that some people would try to get a kick out of farming some (You)s by posting irrational criticism of it.
>>559116330It must be friends w gaping dragon
>>559138663You have not played the game, you know as little about it as we doSo stop making retarded fucking assumptions like that
>>559139438>considering there are no towns or villages and how do you know that
>>559129230>sci-fi twistwould be kino of the highest order
>>559140042Like Xenoblade but with an even higher contrast.
>>559139985because miyazaki said there wouldnt be
>>559139582the horse's damage i mean, not weapon damage from the player's weapon on horseback.>>559139985>"Creating a new type of game is a big challenge for us," Miyazaki told IGN. "If we would add towns on top of that, it would become a bit too much, so we decided to create an open world style game focused on what we are best at.”
>>559140042>the "Elden Ring" is actually a flying saucer>the ending involves numerous AYYs descending from heaven welcoming the character to Mars
>Elden Ring is actually SF KINOthe magic effect looks SF too
>>559118407What are these things?
>>559140240>"Creating a new type of game is a big challenge for us," Miyazaki told IGN. "If we would add towns on top of that, it would become a bit too much, so we decided to create an open world style game focused on what we are best at.”based
>>559139158>For all of my time here the biggest critics of the series were also the fans. People who hated DS3 played through it at least.And how do you figure this isn't the case anymore? I'm specifically apprehensive about the trailer because of having played and having been disappointed by 2 and 3. I find the blind fromdrones to be an annoyance instead. Even Dark Souls 1's takes a nosedive after Ornstein and Smough and there's no reason to defend these games as if they were perfect pinnacles of gaming. All of them have many faults and many good aspects about them. Calling this a new IP and basically fixing up Dark Souls 3's original vision is a slap in the face of the fanbase in my opinion. You'd think they'd finally do a game that doesn't take two steps forward and two steps back.
>>559140236>>559140240ah, I see. in a game like this though it seems difficult to have npcs scattered/hidden in the usual fashion, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a Majula-like area
>>559139821I'm still waiting for the twitter response, if it's anything like Sekiro (From's best game yet) then I'll be 100% certain it'll be GOTY.
>>5591403435G towersbuilt by ayys
>>559140343looks like someone who was crucified
>>559140391does Sekiro not exist? not that it was perfect but it was their most recent game and certainly learned a great deal about what to keep and what to avoid from Souls
How do make a sci fi plot twist interesting?Mecha bosses? Giant spaceships?Or perhaps just a muh old advanced civilization
>>559140748The final boss pulls out a ranger morpher
>>559140748You get railguns and jetpacks
>>559140748muh ancient evil like all Tolkien inspired fantasy
>at the end of the game>you've finally restored the Elden Ring>it's a cock ring meant for the lord
>>559140343low res textures
>>559140042>>559140259I thought that they were angelsBut to my surpriseWe climbed aboard their starshipWe headed for the skies
>>559121220probably my favorite reveal in the trailer
>>559140965COME SAIL AWAYCOOOME SAIL AWAYCOME SAIL AWAY WITH ME
>>559139876>>559139881Skills are probably exploratory related or some other passive buffs that doesn't have too much impact on combat. The biggest redflag is that I can name 100% of all the dozen weapon types used in the trailer being identical to DS3 and I see zero new animations. If they had anything copied from Bloodborne or Sekiro or wholly new, we would hav seen something by now.
>>559113471So, you're telling me it's a better Dark Souls, yes?
>>559127960Fuck I hope not. What we saw looked good but I hope that’s not the best of the best.
>>559141171yes, I’m sure there are no new weapons and every weapon plays exactly like Souls. trust me, based on this two minute trailer I am an expert
>>559113398switch bros... is it over for us?
>>559136023boring and uninspired
>>559121220lol at that’s claws. I think I might use this weapon
>>559120751Totally out-of-the-way area like Archdragon Peak or Cainhurst Castle?
>>559141627Look at those*
>>559121061I fucking love everything about this scene: the armor, the staff, the spell.
>>559140692I don't have a problem with Sekiro or Bloodborne because they obviously distanced themselves from the Dark Souls series enough by changing up key aspects of the formula. The worst part about this reveal was them literally re-using the Dark Souls style and Lords/Champion/lowlife(tarnished in this iteration) as a story outline again. With everything else they've shown I really have to ask myself why Miyazaki was fed up with doing the souls series in the first place. It looks like a melting pot of Souls (3 in particular), Sekiro and Bloodborne so far and the open world doesn't do my reservations any favor either. I'm not as disappointed as I was yesterday but I'm getting DS3 flashbacks.
>>559133352DS3, sort ofThe guy on the cover was originally a more fleshed out character, but after the usual Fromsoft late dev shuffle, his model was recycled into a boss.
>>559116073this looks like something from DS2 desu
There are parts of the trailer that might imply a sci-fi bigger picture.>The anti-gravity floating rubble in the red lion boss fight>the cyclops eye that looks like the surface of a star>The various rings/eclipse's and parabolas that are usually associated with spaceIf I had to guess I'd assume you figure out over the course of the game that the world runs on some kind of cosmic deep space magic, and that humanity fucking with it too much "shattered" realities/dimensions, and now nothing works properly. Maybe aliens lived on earth and killed themselves then humanity found their scraps years down the line.Whatever it is I hope they do the twist properly. The Cthulhu twist in bloodborne was kino.Part of me wonders if the reason they showed so much in the trailer is cause they've got a shit ton of secret stuff planned for the second half. That might just be cope tho
>>559136023I like the coloring palette they have been going for.
>>559135257I'd say it looks about the sameWhich is to say it still looks like ass
>>559120751I hope the skyboxes changes, it would be neat to see a area like this in the day time
no one is going to say anything about the early ps4 textures....
>>559140748The ending opens a portal to modern day FROM headquarters and the main character gets killed by missiles fired from a jet of the japanese military.
We’re reaching levels of autism that shouldn’t even be possible
>>559141391https://youtu.be/o1780AqAa20compare this to the entirety of DS1
>>559141171Flails are in, which has never been done in the series before. Not only that, but there's a hard limit on the amount of weapon types that can be created. DS2 was pretty much already saturated in terms of having almost all possible weapon types.
>>559141798>Bloodborne>changing the formulaSekiro, I agree, since it's not even an RPG. But BB is literally a Souls game with a different coat of paint.
>>559141958Its literally on ps4
>>559120494>that hammer>that sword
>>559141979>japanese military literally who
>>559141958>ps4 textures>game runs on ps4wow no shit sherlock
>>559133708Something they were hunting in their land of originAlso, them ACTUALLY being from the Lands Between, and not from anywhere in the Souls setting is technically not off canon or wrong. Because the Painted World is home for things that have no home or are lost. Travellers from another reality entirely fits that quite well
>>559116330this thing has extremely low quality texturesnot sure what happened here, but it looks so much worse than anything else we've seen
>>559141798just seems like you’re taking surface-level comparisons and similarities (of which there are tons in all their games) and assuming you know it all. if you’re worried about the story and overarching themes wouldn’t you think the involvement of Martin (I’ve never read any of his work minus that shitting copypasta so I can’t comment) would alleviate your fears of it being ‘too similar’? it seems like you’re looking for reasons to be disappointed which means that /v/ has corrupted you completely
>>559142182early ps4 texturesgame looks worse than bloodborne
>>559141880the elden ring is a dyson sphere
>>559142202It's a regular enemy, not a boss, so it looks worse, obviously. It's doing a weird belly flop attack, so textures might be stretched out of proportions in some spots. And there's probably a good amount of motion blur in that scene too. That said, the first point is the main one. It just doesn't have as much quality, because it's just a trash mob.
>>559142329It's a lot bigger than BB
>>559142035>all that colorgrading which never ends up in any of the games
>>559141880>Cthulhu twist cmon, Cthulhu wasn’t in the game it was about eldritch abominations >the reason they showed so much 100% speculation, you have no idea how much they’ve shown. also I seriously doubt there is going to be some big ‘twist’ like BB, people wanted it in Sekiro and they didn’t do it there I think that was just a specific idea they had, not something that has become a core part of their philosophy
>>559113471That's what everyone wanted.
>>559138549Bottom for me>arm has seven vibration modes
>>559142537well that shit aside I was pointing out that merely from a content standpoint you can’t say that trailer really revealed ‘too much’ although who knows how far into development that was it could have had different story concepts back then
To anyone's who scared about from spoiling too much, just go and watch their previous trailers and compare those to their corresponding games
>>559142650Speaking of. Does anyone here read GRRM? Does the fat fuck like TWEESTS?
>>559113471>its just dark souls but with a horse in an open worldholy based, I will play the shit out of this game
>>559142329Anyone with two brain cells to rub together could have figured this out. It's running on the same hardware as bloodborne, but it has a lot more going on at a technical level. Bloodborne already had problems keeping a stable 30fps, so expecting them to be able to keep the same graphical fidelity and have a much larger world is pretty fucking stupid.
>>559121220my favourite part of the whole trailer. hopefully it's not a gimmick fight
>>559117352my guess is this is soul greatsword, and the sword is just like Blue Flame from DS2 or something like that.Either that or a weapon art.
>>559142327>it seems like you’re looking for reasons to be disappointed which means that /v/ has corrupted you completelyNo, I just hoped to see something that wasn't so close to Dark Souls 3 which I've really grown to despise with how it turned out. I'm still hopeful about an actual scifi twist and smaller changes that add up to a more refined and different enough experience as whole.

>>559142912Not so much twists, more for going for the most unnecessarily dark series of events one could imagine for any given situation. He likes throwing every dark medieval fantasy trope at the wall and seeing what sticks. ASoIaF opens with sibling incest and a child being pushed out of a window.
>>559135010>Like the eyes were in BB, although we might never learn the reason behind it.More specifically than limbs, it seems to be hands. Might be something about "grasping the Elden Ring," in the same way people in Bloodborne wanted eyes to understand the cosmos.
>>559143168reminds me of the aquamarine dagger weapon art more than anything else.
>>559121220>FightingConsidering that it appears right after a magic showcase, I wonder if it's actually a spell that affects your horse and turns it into a spectral companion.
>>559143478All the games have had a "power corrupts" motifs so far, and in this game "power" seems to be represented by arms/hands. There seems to be a direct correlation (swinging a sword with your hand). I think the rest is just seeing how it's tied into the mythos of the game and how other characters in the universe are tangled up in it.
>>559142912He did science fantasy novel once with similar theme as Dark Souls.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dying_of_the_Light_(1977_novel)
>>559143478>More specifically than limbs, it seems to be hands.While true, the arms seem to be more prevalent, you can see some feet hanging in here >>559115794.Also, the king dude has an extra leg growing out of his left one >>559122170. Not very clear on this screenshot, but you can see it better in the trailer.
>>559135374You clicked 19 different posts to quote before posting. You are the creepy mentally ill person
The shots they dedicated to bows in the trailer gives me hope that they won't be absolute shit in this one
>>559142912TWEESTS is what GoT adaptation, especially post-book adaptation believe was main point of ASoIaF. All his twists are heavily foreshadowed. Ned Stark twist was the "twist of all twists" but it is something very easy to accept if you take in consideration the characters involved in this case.
>>559113471sounds amazing desu senpaiexactly what I wanted since 2010
>>559114656they all look like they're bent over backwards...creepy.
i'm getting excited boys7 months
>>559131072>night time>these creepy fucks start prowling around
>>559143845Even the announcement trailer features arms heavily, but no legs. The extra legs may be mutations rather than intended augmentations, and the feet in the laboratory look like they're used as bases for holding an arm. To continue with the Bloodborne analogy, the hands may be the eyes, and the legs might be "beasthood" or something similar that represents degeneration.
>>559133258The old dude with all the arms is fought right in front of the ornate striated castle we saw from back in the leaked trailer. He's a gateway boss like corrupted monk.
>>559144602>footfags are degeneratetell me something i dont know
Why dont they just make a fucking berserk game? Miyazaki has ripped it off for every single game from has made since practically their inception, and they surely have enough clout/pull to be able to easily acquire the rights.... So, what the fuck? I'm just getting a bit tired of these "homages" and references at this point, just go all in for fuck's sake.
>>559142912>>559143440I think GRRM will work perfectly with Miyazaki. ASoIaF lore is full of unsolved mysteries similar to Souls lore. Some fantasy things are very vague and just tickle your interest.
>>559143478REEEEEEEEEEEEEE I GOT FUCKING SPOILED ON BB AGAIN WHY THE FUCK DID I EVEN READ YOUR POST
>>559144886Too much shackles when you work with already established universe where all big powers and characters are tied to main plot
>>559113471fpbpI'm also looking forward to this game but let's not kid ourselves. Ever since from struck gold with dark souls all their games have been VERY similar with sekiro deviating the most in that it replaced rolling with parrying. From what we've seen of elden ring it looks much more similar to souls than sekiro, though I would've liked to see a more balanced game that takes elements from both.
>>559144602Well, we saw in the cinematic trailer a guy forging the elden ring and his arm cracking and falling off as he did so. And we see the red head lady has a prosthetic arm. So my guess is that the power of the elden ring is sort of like the infinity stones from marvel or whatever, where the power overload is so great you almost need to have multiple arms to be able to actually hold onto it and absorb it, otherwise you will either die or be badly damaged by the effects of it. Alternatively, the lady with the missing arm seems to have some sort of wierd metallic growths on her. So maybe when you grasp elden ring it causes some wierd shit like that?Also, this cinematic has the guy with multiple hands holding up a single severed hand. Is he he offering the hand to someone? I had a thought that maybe the hand was teh hand of the guy who forged the elden ring, but it looks bloody and fresh and not cracked. So my guess is he's offering one of his hands to someone.
>>559115029oh god, this will be the swamp won't it, and it will be foggy as shit so you have no clue where you are or what's ahead
>>559116568Almost every one of your "observations" is based off an assumption.
>>559116517>>559120023>>559144602it's the same guy, look at the golden headband and frills
>>559113552>You'll have no idea why you're going to do anything you're about to do. And you'll be happy.In seriousness though, it will be, yet another, from game where you have little to no idea who you are or what you're doing or why you're doing it. And sure, that's great and all but goddamm if I would appreciate them doing something different setting wise. This will be, what, like the 7th game set in a post-apocalyptic, medieval hellscape? What happened to that rumored scifi game?Does miyazaki have a vision for a game that isnt the same exact thing adnauseum?
>>559145284>Also, this cinematic has the guy with multiple hands holding up a single severed handHe's not offering it to anybody. He's sticking his arm into another like a gauntlet. The rest of his body probably consists of arms too.
>>559116073The style of architecture here is noticeably distinct from what we've seen on the surface, taking Greek/Roman inspiration rather than medieval Europe.
>>559145334Swamp Kingdom will be the 'want to play game, remember THAT part' area
>>559145334THE SWAMP OF ALL SWAMPS THE MUD KING
>>559144886Berserk would make for a shit RPG, Guts doesn't fit the mold in terms of mechanics, he's not constantly growing in strength. Realistically-speaking he peaks around the Eclipse, it's only the Dragonslayer being covered in demon juices and the Berserk armor that allow him to compete, and even then he's more of a mellow old man by the time the manga ended. Berserk's AESTHETICS are easy to homage and reference, the actual story itself isn't.
>>559113471this, time to buy the same game again, again.
>>559138751Very sad I wasn't here for that. Are there any screenshots?
>>559145334Could be, Land of the One LOD Model Trees looks like the kind of placeHopefully there's a rusted iron ring equivalent and it's a well designed interesting area with multiple paths and shortcuts so I can invade there
>bigger than Ringed City swampkino
Is this the comfy thread? Or should I make one? I just want to discuss the fucking game without the thread getting derailed by autistic TORtanic redditors
>>559117469this is the worst shit in the trailerif my horse can super jump, why can't it super jump everywhere? convenient super jump locations should be based around the natural geometry of the place, you don't need to add a special QTE location. With the sekiro grappling hook it's much less egregious because a grappling hook might only get grip in specific more arbitrary positions, and they were plentiful enough that you could basically grapple to anywhere you logically should be able to, and the indicator was in the UI and not a magical fucking vortex.
>>559121061Could be a quick beam and not a stream of energy.
>>559145734Berzerk also goes on for way too fucking long, Miura had no idea what the fuck pacing was
>>559119368Sekiro already were taking steps away from the traditional super tight enemy placement, they might have used it as practice.
>>559121596i think this is the eye of the viking-looking giant (?) that appears right after this shot.
>>559113398>>559122170Appreciate you OP. This is good stuff and you're a cool anon. The integration of Sekiro and BB combat mechanics are something I really didn't register before. If they pull off an open world game without the bad trops with the charm of DS and the flow of Sekiro's combat this might be a new favorite.
>>559146104It reached bump limit so you can make another one
>>559146187Miura is liked to draw something on his mind for sure. That's why we had the BOAT. Look at damn BOATS he draw.
>>559143294in what ways do you consider it too close to 3?>sci-fi twist will magically make everything better just because it’s differentyou may just have an underdeveloped brain
>>559146104This one just hit bump limit so make a new oneI'll join you
>>559146154Eh I don't see the problem with it. Looks like to me Fromsoft wanted to still do a lot of vertical game design even with a large open world, but having players need to go up a ladder or elevator or up a winding path every time might interrupt the pace so they just give you a way to jump really high in certain areas.
>>559133590>I'm quite sure one of the das3 item description says the milwood knights are from a distant land that lost their treeIdk, it's all pretty vague, hard to say yet, a great tree is hardly a unique motiff, especially when they're made to look like some northern warriors. Armor worn by knights of Millwood. The charbronze breastplate and the thick black cape are adorned with the symbol of the Ethereal Oak. "When the fabled Millwood forest was discovered it was a vacant ruin. The only thing left was the Ethereal Oak, stood rotting. No corpses were discovered, yet their belongings lay neatly on the ground."Helm worn by knights of Millwood. Adorned with antlers believed to grow from the blessed beast of the Ethereal Oak. This large twin-bladed axe forged with bronze is a ceremonial weapon normally used in sacred rites. Millwood is a land of primitive earth worship where chieftain knights served as high priests.(bow)It is said that the Millwood Knights used these to face their sworn enemy, the Abyss DragonThe Knights of Millwood would fight hand-in-hand with the earth itself, and this weapon, among the oldest in Millwood, is symbolic of that relationship.Long ago, when the Millwood Knights lost the forest they called home, they began a journey so long that even thoughts of their sworn enemy washed away, replaced by a vision of a cold and brittle wood.
>>559146676>antlers believed to grow from the blessed beast of the Ethereal Oak
>>559145435>even though it’s drawn from completely different mythology and even has another writer involved it’s the exact same thingyou people need to read some books so you can learn to compare things without being blinded by your obsession with aesthetics and superficial details
>>559116330That looks terrible lol. Hope that is not on the next gen version.
>>559146668If the horse can jump, let it jump. A big blue jump pad lying in the middle of nowhere is just the most abstract game mechanic bullshit you can come up with.
>>559113398>The red sky when fighting that dragonFucking kino
>>559139158>Where the fuck did all the Souls series haters come fromWhere have you been since DaS 2 newfaggot? Kys
>>559120494>>559118860I really like this set, looks like elite knight set but way more elegant
>>559146409No, you can see the nose bridge below that one giant eye. It's a cyclops. The viking giant has two normal eyes.
A good thread on /v/ for once. Good job OP.
>>559142397>dyson sphere>not ringworldcmon son
>>559146676I don't think it's a reference. The ethereal oak doesn't seem like the erd tree that seems to be made out of light I don't think it could rot. Also abyss dragon seems a specific reference to the second DLC.
>>559117676That actually looks kino. Gives me a MediEvil vibe with the color palette and goofy hollow enemies. I like that it isn't so bleak like Dark Souls.
>>559121485>The player seems to be using pyromancy to bathe the enemy in a stream of fireoh damn you're right. I thought that the hand itself was burning, but it does seem like the stream of fire is from the player. Good to know that there are actually different magic types then.
>>559147884I like the flowers.
