    That's incline. Level design > open world. It's why despite the jank DS2 was more fun than DS3 from a exploration point of view.

    Sekiro is FS' Otogi, or Ninja Blade, of today. Those games were nestled among their RPGs. There is no reason to believe Sekiro points to a permanent direction towards pure action, and they've made such games before. Alternating between genres and IPs is the norm and always has been. Between DeS and now they've made a VR adventure game, a Monster Hunter village management game, two Armored Cores, a Steel Battalion, a Gundam game, some other mech shooter.

    It's propably meaningless at this point as the issue with team b in DS2 was lack of experience. That should no longer be a problem.

    The issue was the director being changed half way through, and the game being reworked to be more in line with 1, apparently at the behest of Namco, giving it the most troubled dev cycle

    I would be interested to see what Miyazaki's take on an open world is, but I guess there is no reason to expect it would be any good.

    I think one of the new classes which Fromsoft hasn't tackle before is druid. My ten cents ER will have druid. Maybe even some blood related class like shamans or witches.

    Pyromancers were basically the dark souls version of druids.

    But I want to go around mantled in bear fur, doing dumb shit with mistletoe and summoning wasps and poisonous vines. :rpgcodex:

    But yeah, the DS3 pyromancer set is more or less what I have in mind:

    Cheat mode is what they are lmao.

    I had to put my lvl1 pyro run on pause because of real life aggro but i got as far as getting the Lords Vessel and i was shocked at how easy it was. Even the archer in Anor London all i did was run up to him and one shot him with a combustion.

    No shape shifting though. Not sure how that could possibly work in a From game but it would be kinda knewl.

    There's a mod for DS3 that lets you attack "summoning" enemies. It's quite boring, but the concept is interesting:



    Sadly, when FS decides to give us some sort of shape shifting, we usually get underwhelming stuff like the dragon form in DS3. Usually those shape changes only impact minor things (the egg parasite in DS1, the broccoli guy in Bloodborne), but I guess they could improve on it in future games.

    Another "leak" suggests a release trailer in February.

    Watched some vids about possible ER lore and 'The Fromsoftware' way of doing things would be this. You approach a small house, maybe seeking what's inside.You open the door. BAAAM! It Baba Yaga house turning into a giant monster chasing you down.
    Even scarier than actual baba yaga house.

    The most brilliant idea I've discovered from fans is Mimic imitating the campfire.

    would really piss off a lot of people, unless the bonfires are close together and you don't lose 30 minutes of progress

    There's a mimic bonfire in one of the mods but it's just a simple explosion, nothing as badass.

    there'd be nothing to get good at. Like the mimic in sen's fortress - it's a one off gotcha moment to waste time
