What are you expecting to see from Fromsoftware this year?

I'd probably faint over the announcement of a dark fantasy, Escaflowne-inspired ARPG.

I just hope that if the RR Martin rumor is true it has nothing to do with GoT. I know it's a great series but I feel a bit beaten over the head by it after the last 8 years.

Demon’s Souls Remake and Armored Souls (after copying Nioh they will show how sci-fi souls should be done)
or Evil Within Souls

FROM aren't doing a Demon's Souls remake. If it's ever done Sony is outsourcing it to someone. Was said by Miyazaki himself in his GI interview.

Btw, maybe it is a coincidence or nothing at all... but I'm noticing a lot of Dark Souls advertisements on the main FromSoftware social channels (Facebook, Instagram). Who knows if this matters with E3...

Not seeing anything new on instagram other than posts announcing the ds remaster. Not on the jp acc or the english one (which im still unsure on wheter or not is official).
You could argue the avatars are both ds related but those have been the same for a long time now

I was really eh with regards to this E3 up until a few weeks ago (what with Sony missing and many big games already out), but between this and FFVII-R I'm way more hyped than I've been in years for an E3.

Best thing of all is that From usually releases their games less than a year after they announce it, so that's always great.

Did Omnipotent reject the GRRM rumour ? I think we are really in for an open world GOT style fantasy game maybe that's the thing he mentioned about some specific set of people not liking since it's open world and not Non linear like soulsbornekiro.

Looking forward to From’s first next-gen project
Oh damn didnt think about it that way.. will this be crossgen?? maybe comes straight to next gen if these are released prior to march?? Maybe there's no april-march release and the game is launched alongside next gen?
in terms of improvements, i dont expect them to up the visuals that much compared to sekiro (not that i had a problem w those anyways) but hopefully performance will improve drastically if the title comes to next gen

armored souls-like shlooter. you could break parts off of ACs like in Gundam Breaker to collect loot/parts before you finish them. would be legit imo

I was reading somewhere that Activision won't be present @ this E3. So I'll go with Bandai Namco as publisher of the gigaton.

I think this comes to current generation because Dark Souls II came out super late.

Outside of Sekiro DLC, nothing.

I'd prefer them to go dormant and focus on developing any potential next-gen projects.

It's probably not gonna happen, but that mermaid art got me excited over the prospect of a FromSoft game set entirely underwater.

Not Dark Souls 4 but Dark Souls IIII hehe

Someone mentioned a dark fantasy underwater Souls game and that would be really cool to see, so hopefully someone tells FromSoft about it wink wink

Expecting that "dark fantasy" title they were working on to show up at E3 and be released in 2020. I think that was the remaining title from that Miyazaki interview.

A licensed Berserk game written by GRRM
imagine the new "griffith did nothing wrong" spawns if that ever happens
-
i was happy i was unaware just spamming the F of divinity 2 since my summer vacation started and then i stumble upon this thread now im consmued with hype and questions.
-
couple of questions since i didn't check the whole thread
1. how likely is it that we'll get sekiro DLCs , i just had the feeling we wont get any since it released for some reason but didn't look it up
2. this game you're talking about isn't the AC game that seems confirmed its a new thing that we'll see soon in E3?.

1. No confirmation on the sekiro DLC but I think it's likely
Omnipotent claimed this year would be way more exciting in terms of fromsoft announcements compared to 2018
last year we got the first actual sekiro trailer and this year we're getting a new trailer for a new game
therefore more announcements need to happen in order for it to be more exciting. Expect sekiro DLC and maybe even demon souls remaster??
Also see no reason for them not to release DLC given how well it usually does

2. This new game is 99.8% going to be a new dark fantasy ARPG, likely a new IP. Armored core is confirmed to be in developement, yes, but Omni said more stuff would come prior to it (so sekiro + this new game)

Maybe there'll be more than one announcement, but I think Omni just means this new project is gonna be big. Dunno in what way though. Maybe a big open world that still has intricately and carefully designed areas, maybe it'll have an extensive online component.
Just something significantly bigger than Sekiro's "being a new FROM action game that takes a lot from Dark Souls but reworks the combat and adds much more open, fluid, and vertical traversal" (not knocking Sekiro here!) is my guess.
