    Oh wow, a quest compass and a map in a DS game.

    But I'm sure that's only in the overworld, not in the dungeons.

    Show Spoiler
    Now THAT'S some quality cope, just FYI.

    The gameplay leak is from the Xbox One version. I assume next-gen and PC is going to look significantly better.

    You are the stupid fuck. It had a compass which showed the four cardinal directions, and that was it. And the labyrinthine map design made it kinda necessary. Pretty sure Elden Ring will not only have a compass, but show objectives/pois on it, i.e. a real quest compass. And with today's graphics and good level design, a compass shouldn't be needed at all. But this is a GPS for the retards and an excuse for bad world design.

    This game is gonna be shit. FromSoft has been on the popamole bandwagen for a while now. Lookout towers and quest compass are the red line I'm not willing to cross.
    They can fuck themsleves.

    Compass and map are both fine, as long as they don't retardedly give away things. But it seems that there are some markers indeed and that's shit.

    I don't think anyone here has anything against magnets or electromagnetism. The problem resides in the "quest" part of the "quest compass".

    The trend is to have higher framerate and resolutions, and maybe bump up shadow resolution a bit, on new generation consoles. Textures, models, animations, effects go unchanged.

    It depends on the game. CP 2077 for example is night and day on old-gen vs PC.

    No it won't you fucking contrarian sperg, it's been known a long time that a compass would have been in, you can put your own waypoints on the map and that's it

    Keep hoping for a TORtanic

    I'm also vehemently against a quest compass, no evidence of that being the case so far though! Sekiro was a decent game and I'm willing to give From credit for now

    This unequivocally looks like a quest compass to me:

    that's clearly an highlighted point of interest right there.

    You can turn it off and play without, you know that.

    Congrats on totally missing the point. "Just turn it off" is never an answer, because the quibble is over design. When a game is designed around quest compasses, turning the UI off doesn't change the design.

    CP2077 new gen version hasn't even released.
    PS: also CP2077 was very clearly a next-gen title from the very start. ER doesn't even look better than early ps4 games.

    A compass in a Souls game feels heretical though.

    I don't understand it. How is that any different than say, Skyrim? You also see undiscovered PoI on the compass to guide you.

    I can see it's different, I saw the trailer with a dude jumping in plate armor, I just didn't expect it to do a full 180 on some design principles of their former games.

    Larger maps is probably why it's reasonable to expect a bit of graphics downgrade compared to Sekiro.
