    We can see already more verticality and agility with the jump and grappling wires, I guess Tenchu influence. Looks very good.

    Yeah, looks promising.
    Cautiously optimistic for now.

    Another derivative of Dark Souls, but it doesn't even look original since Nioh was released first.

    That gimmick has never been done well that I've seen, it's always just usable on specific points, so it may as well be an elevator key.

    It looks good. Much more interesting than Bloodborne.

    colour me mildly hyped. kind of a mix of Soulsborne, Nioh and Tenchu. i'm curious to see if it will be "kinda open world" like the Souls games or more level-based like Nioh

    Yeah, looks like that's the case here as well. There seems to be such a point on top of that gate.
    Graphics are also pretty bad, but who cares.
    I like the atmosphere, art direction, level design and dynamic combat, but it's less than 3 minutes, most of which is cinematic shit, so it really is too early to tell.

    I look forward to it! It'll be nice to see what they do in terms of exploration, seeing as there is clearly a new emphasis on freedom of movement. Really like how it's looking aesthetically so far too.

    Looks like it's a game that will have Soulsborne combat, death is mentioned multiple times and it is implied there are lore reasons why you resurrect after death. You also run through a narrow bridge and get attacked by a big dragon snake. Have never seen these before :roll:

    That said, I like the visuals and the tone, and it seems fast paced with some verticality to it. I am cautiously optimistic for a decent action-adventure. However Activision being involved might mean we will get something similar to Ubisoft/Ea open world non-games.

    lol, they're really cloning a game that's itself a clone of one of their own games.

    It's not like Nioh created Japanese mythology, lmao.

    If anything, getting Blade of the Immortal vibes there, especially if that little girl tags along at some point?

    It's not like it's the first time From Software makes games in ancient japan either. There's no need to mention garbage like nioh just because From is going back to their roots.

    I am a bit disappointed that this isn't set in a Exhumed/Powerslave-like ancient Egypt.

    have to say that fight with samurai on horse looked so dope. undead protagonist, stealth, grappling hook, more open world approach etc. all looks great only shame its again medieval japan. But Bloodborne was supposed to be only gothic horror with werewolves and shit and we than we got Ayylmaos and Lovecraft out of no where so i hope for some twist in the setting.

    Setting aside, this game should tower over Nioh when it comes to level design and exploration.

    I just hope Activision is sensible enough to not make this a Battle.net exclusive. (I think they probably won't as this likely is single-player centric, but who knows.)

    Press release:

    - Directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki
    - "a third-person, action-adventure game with RPG elements."

    So the game is owned by From Software, unlike Bloodbourne and Dark Souls. Activision is a publisher for western release.
