    Once I turn it off, will quests and locations make sense even without it? Because usually they don't. Devs are lazy, and once shit like quest markers is in the game they inevitably design the game around it.

    That isn't a valid excuse to adopt shitty uninspired mechanics that all open world games so far have used as crutches to avoid having to be designed in an intelligent way.

    They didn't forget to include colors in DS2. This is more like DS3 monochrome style.

    I'd be okay with borderline mediocre graphics if we got fantastic performance in their games but Sekiro and DaS3 struggle to remain at a consistent 4K/60 on high-end systems and we all know how poor Bloodborne run regardless of PS4/PS4 Pro/PS5 hardware. They have damn near unlimited resources, why is their tech so far behind everyone else's?


    Imagine turning off the compass in Skyrim.
    Quest dialog: "Go clear out this draugr lair"
    Solution: Clear out every draugr lair until you get lucky?

    Yeah, a lot of quests in TW3 are also p. obnoxious without a quest compass.

    What you said post-edit now does make sense., but still does not apply. FromSoft is a console developer, the PC version won't have upgraded visuals over consoles other than resolution bumps.

    I get the feeling they didn't have a game for the longest time, panicked, took the Dark Souls 3 engine and slapped together this.

    The game is the Dark Souls 2 they initially wanted to make before development got halted and they reworked all their assets into a Dark Souls 1-like game. Open world, competing with the west in terms of design.

    Except that they're once again working on an IP that isn't theirs, and signed to Bamco who obviously just wants Dark Souls 4 and not an actual new IP.

    Nice try, but my post was never edited.

    As far as old-gen vs PC, we won't know how much of a difference there is until it's actually released or at least until there's some comparison footage.

    The worst thing about a quest compass isn't that it tells you where things are on the map, it's that it tells you where things aren't.

    In Witcher 3, a glance at the map basically tells you "hey, we've put all the content at these "?" spots, everything else is just graphic filler for your "immersion""

    It destroys exploration as I know there's zero chance of me finding anything of interest if I climb that mountain over there for instance.

    I'd be more ok with the compass if it simply revealed locations you've already been to etc. But if it does the same as Skyrim where it has a bunch of unvisited icons that'll spoil it for me.

    God, I want this Dark Souls 4 thing so much.

    I bet you can turn the compass off if needed.
