I think I’m most excited by Omni’s leaked write-up mentioning that people who felt left behind by Sekiro will be back into this big time. I did enjoy Sekiro overall and I’m so, so, so happy that From experiments rather than repeats ideas to exhaustion, but I don’t want that game to determine their future direction.

Knowing that he told people to temper their expectations for Sekiro but is now saying Elden Ring is From’s ultimate game makes the hype much more believable.

I'm guessing this is an autumn 2020 title with gameplay revealed in spring. You should be getting native next-gen console versions of it.
just weird to see it advertised for PS4 if we expect the PS5 to be around by Aug 2020. i guess they can't advertise for an unreleased console and i'm certain people will buy it for PS4 who don't adopt early, but come on! call 'em next gen games!

So I noticed there’s actually 4 rings and not 3, perhaps a reference to 4 kingdoms (various kingdoms portion of the rumor)?

I think this is a Spring 2020 title. Dark Souls II came out at the tail end of last gen.

I'm hyped it's fantasy again. I didn't like Sekiro's setting or gameplay. I was hoping it would eventually click but no, it was a chore to beat.

damn. this is pretty badass of you drift. Lol. Played the game on hard mode
Really? Is Threaded Cane considered a bad weapon? I thought the range it provided gave it a lot of utility. I also found it to be the coolest weapon in the game so i never felt like switching to anything else for long.

For me personally, out of the three starting weapons, I had the most trouble with the cane. Hunter axe seemed to be the easiest to start off with.

Looks like I will be watching the Microsoft event afterall.

But why G.R.R. Martin besides he’s the hype fantasy writer of the moment?

When that Bloodborne trailer dropped in the Sony presser, I was in the theatre watching it live with fellow nerds. Man, nothing like a megaton dropping out of the blue.
Lmao just Google search project beast and you'll see how hard that shit leaked MONTHS before. We had legit gifs of enemies and combat and a character walking into a fog wall, this logo and single rune two days before announcement really ain't shit in comparison

That thread on Gaf was madness I remember following that every day , tons of fun lol

I mean I like George RR and am psyched about this as fuck but this colab still seems so random, it kind of boggles my mind right now haha. I thought it was a meme gag!

Does he play their games? Is Miyazaki a big fan...? Sorry if I missed any tidbits in here but really curious.

GRRM said he "consulted" on this game. Unless I've missed something else in the news, that doesn't really give us an idea of how large his involvement is. It could be anywhere from a minor to large part of the process.

So this will be 5th fromsoft game this gen. 1 sequel(ds3) and 4 new IPs( BB, Sekiro, Deracine and Elden Ring).
I am so happy they are trying new things, not many studios are doing that. They could easily just pump out a dark souls and Bloodborne in consecutive years and make ton of money, but nah. And with Sekiro being their biggest launch despite no multiplayer/rpg elements, I am glad it's paying out for them.
I am in day 1 whatever they do.
wth is Deracine 😮

I don’t know who Omni is, but you’ve got me hyped now. You have a link to this write up?

There are literally 1000 hours of Souls content available. I hope they never develop another Souls game. What a complete waste of talent developing the same game for the rest of their lives would be. Sekiro was amazing and I hope they continue to experiment.
Yep.

I love Souls, but I own every game on multiple platforms. And I replay them constantly.

Give me something new.

This obsession for more Souls is wacky given this community's apparent love for new ideas and IP.

I'm not huge From fan. I finished Bloodborne (killed all the bosses minus the real final boss because one stupid umbilical cord) and played around 40% of Dark Souls. That said, I'm incredibly excited for this one. If this is indeed an open world with all the From Software's strengths and a good story it has a chance to be something amazing.

Miyazaki is a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire. I think I read an article where they toured FROM and got a look inside his office. He had a shelf filled with games, old tabletop games, and books which included ASOIAF.

Still crazy to have them both working together in some capacity on this. FROM have made it big man.

Real final boss is
a big disappointment anyway, you really didn't miss anything. Gehrman IS the final boss as far as I'm concerned.

As a big fan of Bloodborne, fuck Bloodborne 2. In a world where sequels are thrown out everywhere its refreshing to have a studio that will constantly travel in different directions. Move the fuck on.

Yeah, I remember that actually. Was FF7 the megaton with no leak?

Sorry if this has already been asked, but is there a summary of the information anywhere? What all we know, etc

This is such an inspired collaboration. Hopefully it's more than Martin just attaching his name to a project (although I'm sure lots of people are probably hoping that is the case).

Yeah, I figured it wasn't that big of a deal. I played the DLC last month and I thought about doing a second run but quickly dismissed the idea. Maybe if they do a patch on PS5 I might do it but right now that's a wrap on BB for me.

PS: The last boss of the DLC was cool as fuck.

Man. When I published my review of Bloodborne I had an AMAZINGLY timed screenshot of the side-shot in the moonflower lily field right before the final boss battle began and I had to remove it from the review to avoid spoilers. You know the camera angle I'm talking about, just a perfectly fucking captured moment, everything in the game building to that one second.

I ended up using a shot of my character posing with the Holy Blade like he was on a metal album cover in the Cainhurst graveyard instead, but I never did get to get use out of that final boss screenshot. What a shame.
