Needing to mark the map yourself is one of my favourite parts of all this so far. I want to explore the world myself, without guidance, and I'm glad Fromsoft is making that a major part of the game. Map markers telling you where to go aren't exactly something I'm a fan of
Watch me pulling off that backstep skill from the old wolf curved sword with smough's great hammer
Nice that last gen folks can play this but this title seems very next gen compared to others hope the game is 100% in vision / complete. Limitations could potentially damage it
Ymfah better give us the "skip the coming months and get to January" guide XD
More detail, New stuff = a lot of new glitch to discover
ANOTHER Dark Souls? sigh
you had me sold at pot boi summoning.
5:30 Just wanna point out that I never put points on my attack at Sekiro - and the last boss fight was 10 times harder than it should've been on my first playthrough... so you actually level up and customize your character in that game as well ... but not as freely as in the other games
So no plot you just hack and slash
Oh now we get 6 zones, I've only been waiting 10 years for this 😜
I just cannot wait for this game
The most difficult part of Elden Ring is containing my hype
You wield a black cube to summon....
SOULed me when you said dedicated jump button, truly the most evil and punishing part of the whole franchise.
MY BODY IS SO READY
I really like how they focus on their specialty rather than try to appeal to some other people/try something new with there being no towns, from soft really pulls off the “end of the world” type game really well and I can’t wait for it
Subscribed to you because you DESERVE more!!!! Keep it up mate you are exceptional in your explanations
What console should i get for this?
so basically the pot will be my best friend till the end of time got ya
FINALLY WE ARE GETTING SUMMONER CLASS!!!
So that's where RR Martin comes in to play.. All NPC's are protagonists integral to story and lore within the game. Like GoT, every character is a main character. I'd imagine all NPC's can live, or die depending on how well you play and your choices.
So they def took some ideas from monster hunter
Same old graphics Same old hair Same old mobs Same old locations Same old "tackle bosses in any order you like" Same old combat Same old animations Same old multiplayer Different grass I think this is the one!
Nah its all new
Oh my god this is fucking amazing
I just hope I won't be backed in to a corner of playing certain builds. DS3 was a bit like that and it annoyed me.
The only thing I’m worried about is missing out on content because of how it might be hidden or unclear with no map markers or guiding directive. I remember playing DS1 for the first time and ended up going to the four kings way before I was ready and I thought I was softlocked back then. I would hate to be a dunce and miss out on optional things, but I also don’t want to spoil everything for myself and wait till someone else figures out how to do everything. Ultimately, I think there should be at least some way to figure out which ways to go and not go for story progression and optional content without diving into the end area boss accidentally.
i'm really confused with what you said 6 open worlds ? so basically like you go through a portal thing or something and then you in the next open world ?
What about poise tho?
I really hope that werewolf is an obtainable ability
It would be funny if the tarnished were unable to attack an invader while on horseback so would have to dismount and fight properly. Or run lol
I think i saw something saying you can't use your horses for pvp
I am so glad I saw this video! I was about to buy demon souls, but now I got to wait for a game that will suit me much better than demon souls, thanks VaatiVidya!!!
@Firezz_ 27 but eden ring doesn't come out till January
@pervert too expensive
Why not play both?
But will we die a lot?
Wow. According to Vaati, none of the skills where a huge success. Sekiro would like to have a word with you, my friend.
Siegward of Catarina is waiting for you elden ring
Sekiro had about the most grinding for materials that I can tolerate. "search the world for that one plant" is some skyrim crud :/ Loved Sekiro immensely I played it 8 times in a row on release...if I have to dig for mushrooms or something it'll really be detrimental to how the game flows (excessive material gathering and crafting and inventory management of all the crud is fine for some but one of the reasons these games are so appealing to me is because they don't draw my adhd-riddled attention in 40 different directions all the time always, which is stressful) hope its not really like that
Will I have to look on the internet to know what things mean? Or will the game tell me?
Wonder if stealth is going to have its own attribute you can level up.
Pot Boy Gang
FOR THE RAT KIN............... OOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooo... You said Elden Ring...
maybe the spirits are part of the magic builds. To me their color and animation seem linked to magic
yeah sure the pots are amazing but can we get dragon buddies
i can already see vids like summon only elden ring
If we can use these spirits to aid us, can we please have that wolf warrior to aid he looks awesome!
I see a small hint of elder scrolls with this such as the customization,dungeons the exploration the side quests. And on a sidenote I really like the fact that the side quests won’t be displayed you have to mark them manually I think that makes it more difficult and more hands-on I guess.
I'm getting dragons dogma type vibes with that team summon idea.
I Really wanna see the cloacked female character that appears in the trailer, she likely going to be our level up NPC companion
I don't know about adding more customization and "crafting", after all, you can do more with less. Despite the souls-like games being my favorite, I'm worried they'll be tarnished by the trend of a game being overhyped with unnecessary features/promises, causing unrealistic expectations, and eventually resulting in disappointment and an unfinished product. Even in the case of cyberpunk, I thought it was a great game despite public opinion but it demonstrated how it's becoming harder and harder to please consumers while developers having the motivation to release a finished product when they'll buy it anyway. I'll probably still get and love it, but I've lost a lot of faith in gaming.
If you like cyberpunk and think people are too harsh on it that's a bad take
They have said there will be a bunch new features but the only big one that could fuck up is the promise of the open world. Adding crafting which is mostly for hp regen type items can't really go wrong. What cyberpunk promised was on a whole other level
How does more customization sound bad for a Fromsoft game? Players have always strived to diversify as much as possible and it’s the standout point for Dks3 I get the concern about crafting and how that can be tacked on, but I think it fits the genre closer than it would others. Plus im really hoping this game does a lot to stand apart from the Soulsborne identity; I don’t want just a big dark souls
sorry but you cant rely on items in sekiro? xDDD i finaly got it and am nearly at the end alot of the bosses are broken becuase items, tbh i wish i never got it as im kinda worried for elden ring now :/ what should be an enjoable mini boss is a grueling boring task of killing 6 guys with guns guarding him and this is repeated , unlimited ammo bazooka boss?, again.. guarded by guys with guns. i mean they should have just gave the player a gun at this point. games amazing but fuck me alot of annoying , boring and stupid things in it.
There will be romance, please, I've been waiting for it since Dark Souls 1.
7:50 lol someone didn't play Hard+ on Ghosts of Tsushima.
Elden Ring is no joke looking like my dream Zelda game.
How is something more convenient than ever before when it comes to something that hasn’t existed before
Sekiro is DS for people with actual skill and strategy
That's a smug thing to say
Not really. I can beast all over Sekiro, but I still struggle against Soul of Cinder. One is not the other but for X, Y and Z. They're both just different experiences, with different strengths, and requiring slightly different skillsets.
I just want to play it!
bigger, not more than big. Great video tho!
@Don Lobo yes you are right, at least when it comes with more than what it implies but elder ring is a bigger game, more mechanics, items, monsters and a bigger space, overall a bigger game in all of its ways, not a big burger in "combo" with big fries, ice-cream and cola. Just the game, not the game with a card game, with a physical map, book and amiibo or toy, maybe then it is more than big, then it would not only be the game but also a whole "combo" that's bigger... Maybe the limited or special edition will be more than big lobo.
"The big burger combo is more than (just) the big burger, because it comes with fries and a shake." Exchanging "more than the big burger" for "bigger burger" completely changes the sentence and implies that the burger in the combo is bigger than the big burger, which is not necessarily the case nor the point of the sentence. The point of the phrase is to indicate that it adds more than just a big versión of the other thing, not that it's just bigger than the other thing.
I hope they won't make this game overly complicated with that skills. Please don't do that.
There should be recognizable badass main character like witcher and sekiro!!🤔
Custom characters are better. Wolf was boring.
I’m so glad my Dads condom broke just so that I could experience this game.
This is the only videogame I'm looking forward to. Soulsborne has become a religion. And I'm one of it's many followers. Thank you everyone at From Soft, Miyazaki, and Bandai for giving gamers these beautiful and fantastic worlds to escape to from reality. The deepeset of the deep, the darkest of the dark. That brings us together.
Elden Ring finally catching up to where Nioh was with skills back in 2017.
"O let us be married! too long we have tarried But what shall we do for a ring?" They sailed away, for a year and a day, To the land where the Bongtree grows And there in a wood a Piggywig stood With a ring at the end of his nose, his nose, his nose, With a ring at the end of his nose. "Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling Your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will." So they took it away, and were married next day By the Turkey who lives on the hill. They dined on mince, and slices of quince, Which they ate with a runcible spoon
I don't like the whole summon evil spirits....
@pervert I won't skank.
Then don't summon them problem solved
Elden Ring BETTER fix the terrible hitboxes and godforsaken Camera of sekiro. It's hard to believe they were able to release such a Half Baked piece of crap and largely hide the fact that it was a giant Financial flop because it has some of the worst hitboxes and camera GIMP in modern gaming history. Sekiro was hard for all the wrong reasons and I wouldn't touch Elden ring with a ten-foot pole 💩 *FROMFAIL*
I'm really happy that open world games are actually embracing being open world now. I mean look at a game series like Far Cry, decent games with open worlds, but you still have to follow a strict linear story path. And at that point... Its like why isn't this just level based? Now all that open world does is bloat travel and game time. Open world games gameplay should be open, just like the sandbox.
Bosses can be tackled in ANY order?? *BREATH OF THE WILD MUSIC INTENSIFIES*
Well I'd hope so.
Prepare to cry: rr martin
Need russian subtitles
I want a damn eternal ring sequel i hope this at least references it as that games ring system had potential
This weapon art isnt for this weapon. Yeah because its copy pasted from ds3
its bigger dark souls.
Not many people know he's a plagerist. He also fakes his voice inflections. Its annoying
If I can’t make a giant dad build I’m gonna prolong the age of fire
"That's not our specialty" Ah cool well then let's just never attempt to get better at it then. Solid plan.
It's the same as Nintendo stating ultra realism and high end tech is not their strength. Is a design choice. Take an entire year of development time to train your devs and artist on something they have little to no experience doing, taking development time and budget away from the rest of the content, reducing the scope of the game and overall amount and quality of content. Or focus on your team's strengths and delivering a full experience, compromising on villages and dynamic NPC interactions. Seriously mate. Take 5 minutes and go read a little on how the industry works. Is not as simple as "we need to learn somehow... So why not try it now?" when you're trying to make several millions of dollars out of a product made by 80 people, where industry giants have teams well over 300 people and can just split the team and send half of it to train while the rest are on top of the project.
I mean yes the game is going to be amazing... but big props to the layout of this video, the transitions flowed really nicely and not once did I feel like we were jumping from section to section.
11:28 Probably because they don't want invaders to make you chase them throughout the map. . . Lmao i can see certain "individuals" use that as means to troll the host.
Big Dark Souls sounds like something conspiracy theorists blame bad hitboxes on
Question on elden ring. Fan service solaire armor attainable? Solaire cameo?
I wanna be the very best Like no one ever was To catch them is my real test To train them is my cause I will travel across the land Searching far and wide Each Pokémon to understand The power that's inside (Pokémon!)

From software mechanics with George RR Martin story? This is going to be amazing
I can already ear "game journalists" crying
I sure as hell hope that stealth is the only part of Sekiro they're bringing over. I was surprised at how much I hated that game. First FromSoftware game I dumped before finishing.
Ooof. Couldn't get good enough to finish it aye? Your loss. Won't take any counterargument, Sekiro was genius.
Shouldn't have watched this. It made me to excited for the game
Go as blind as possible to the game? if so... how to resist to not watch your videos? ohhhh god
Honestly it's not really surprising that Elden Ring is apparently a culmination of all of the Souls and Souls-like games that have come before it, plus new elements like a big open world. Everyone seems to forget FromSoft's first hit series that didn't quite break into the mainstream - Armored Core. Each AC game built on the last mechanically in some way, and added onto it in an incremental building up of features. By the time of ACV and Verdict Day, the systems were all quite expansive. Elden Ring continues with this incremental development philosophy. There is no need to create a new form of dodge rolling for it specifically, because the dodge rolling system of prior souls games already works. They can expand weapon arts into skills, because they've had a couple games to test them out. They can include stealth elements because they worked on that in Sekiro. They understand what people like about their souls formula, so they can put that formula into an expansive open world and see how that works out. They will try to include more important NPCs this time around, even though they won't go full RPG with them. But that doesn't mean that in 10 years, when we're playing the 5th game after ER, that gigantic open worlds with complex cities full of NPCs won't be something FromSoft doesn't do. Because they're just taking a start with those elements here.
Omg so hyped 😍
Subtitles transcribed pot boi as vaati, hmmm...
Im so excited to make magical swordsman. And to sneak around. This game excites me so much!
But...but I want it to be big Dark Souls. Don't mix the formula up too much please. Give me more amazing DS/BB/Sekiro goodness please.
To think all their games so far have led us to this, I am beyond excited for this game
i always want an open world dark souls with free exploration with no marker and stuff like that. this is something i look forward to.
well, regardless if we play male or female, since martin wrote a good portion of the story we inevetable will shag one of our relatives if not multiple :/
Will this be available with xbox if it is im totally getting it on xbox 🥰
Big dark souls
I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Dark Souls and didn't really consider buying any more From Software games, but this video kinda sold me on Elder Ring. It really does sound like a step in the right direction instead of making the same game with the same bugs for a decade.
This game gets to hyped up because its from the same guys who did Dark Souls. People will be disapointed in the End.
Not sure why. Its not like this is overly ambitious. It's within their scope. They have been transparent as to what the game will deliver and fromsoft has never made a bad game yet
Bring back worm head
Maybe this time a single Souls game after what didn't even happen with 4 Souls games _combined_ will sell more than *one* Elder Scrolls game? Likely not, lmfao. Also, hackers are probably gonna bust this wide open like they did with DS3. No thank you, lol.
From software has 0 game devolpers, they only employ craftsmen.
