    Amazon page says "This item will be released on December 31, 2020". It's either a leak or more likely just a placeholder. FS wouldn't let Bezos to announce the release date for them.

    Btw IIRC Sekiro was up for pre order early Fall 2018, about 6 months before the launch.

    Have From Software discussed how Elden Ring will be different from Dark Souls games? I mean they say it's open world, but so was DS1, kinda.

    I hope the ratio of combat to exploration to dialogue changes. I would like to see less combat compared to DS series, more exploration, dialogue.

    they said it will have mounts which means it won't be DS1 open world but ubisoft one.

    The desire is understandable since the cryptic NPC interactions and largely environmental storytelling entices people to want to know more about the FromSoftware settings (what you can't have is more desirable), but be careful what you wish for. It only takes one badly written character or dialogue to ruin the spell and make the magic of FromSoftware games go away forever.

    I get that, but as much as I liked DS1, it will still be below proper RPGs for me (ones with a more balanced mix of gameplay). The constant combat/die/combat/die cycle is just a bit much.

    Go play Witcher 3 where every bum you meet will put you to sleep with his life story after you merely ask him for directions and leave gameplay focused games to non faggots, m'kay?

    Sorry fags, i cant be cynical about this; Skyrim with DS/sekiro combat sounds like a good game.

    Well, hopefully its like that, and not like a ubisoft game

    Having the maps be less linear is what I'm hoping for the most, personally. That and the equipment actually being noteworthy instead of 30 variations of 'it's a sword that looks slightly different that isn't worth using because you'd have to upgrade it'.

    Gee, the recurring December 31 date. What could that possibly mean?

    It means an Autumn 2020 release with the inevitable Spring 2021 delay.
