Dark Souls (Demon's Souls sequel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Post  wottagunn on Tue Feb 01, 2011 3:00 pm

this week's Famitsu reports in a big exclusive that Project Dark - previously announced at the Tokyo Game Show last year - is officially a spiritual Demon's Souls follow-up, entitled 'Dark Souls'. And it's going to be tougher than the previous game.

Andriasang has rounded up all of the supposed Dark Souls details leaked from the magazine and listed them. Here they are for your viewing pleasure:

* First of all, the difficulty has been increased greatly over Demon's Souls, which - as fans will attest - will make Dark Souls harder than diamond-coated, titanium nails.
* Dark Souls shares the same themes as Demon's Souls: learning from your mistakes and the joy of discovery.
* There's no connection with Demon's Souls in terms of story or world. Dark Souls is a spiritual sequel rather than a direct one.
* As with Demon's Souls, the basic gameplay is based on classic RPGs and dungeon crawlers, retaining key aspects like character creation, obtaining weapons and items, levelling up and so on.
* The biggest change, according to director Miyazaki Hidetaka, is in the area of exploration. The action-battle component is an important element, but on top of this, exploration of a large, seamlessly connected field is also integral. You can walk to areas that you can see far off in the distance.
* All the maps are connected, rather than having you move to each area from a shrine. This time, you head off on a journey from a large base of operations, and find smaller bases along the way as you progress further and deeper into your adventure.
* There are far more areas with complex land formations of varying height.
* The goal in character development is to get rid of elements that may hinder freedom of play style. This is why there's no job concept during initial character creation.
* Weapons have a great variety of motions and special capabilities, and there are a great number of magic and item types. This will allow players to play in their own style.
* Regarding network play, Hidetaka said that he can't share too many details, but the game will have co-operative and competitive multiplayer components. You'll also be able to call upon people to help you out when you're stuck.
* The game will also have indirect online elements like the original, such as seeing the ghostly apparitions of other players, messages from the dead, and so-forth. The game will not have its own servers this time however, so elements like Soul Tendency from the original will not be present in Dark Souls.
* There are other online elements that will be detailed in future updates.

Dark Souls is set to be released in Japan later in 2011, with the game's overseas release being handled by Namco Bandai once again.

Dark Souls will pack in up to 60 hours worth of play time, project director Hidetaka Miyazaki’s revealed.

Speaking with 4Gamer, Miyazaki noted that by comparision the game’s precursor, Demon’s Souls, offered around 30-40 hours game time. Sounds like we’ll be getting plenty of bang for our buck, then.

Elsewhere, he touched base on the prospect of a playable demo, confirming a teaser’s unlikely to happen as he’s admittedly “not all that great at making demos.”

DLC isn’t on the cards either, apparently, though if extra content were to materialise Miyazaki said developer From Software wouldn’t charge for any post-release pleasures.

Dark Souls is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in fall 2011. Stay tuned for more details as they arrive.

I was listening to this pod cast and I thought it was really funny how the guy described the difficulty of this game in 1 of the sections he was preview playing. He was being chased by monsters from the front and back on a thin stretch of bridge while having to dodge arrows and swinging pendulums. Eventually he lost concentration and was knocked off into a moat down below. There he was attacked by even more difficult monsters and had a harder time, than on top of the bridge.
I am gonna love this game kicking my ass all over again.

That sounds awesome Fuchs.
Just watched a newer trailer showing gameplay, and it looks great. Demons Souls is still the game that I regard as the best on PS3.
Can't wait for this, does anyone know the release date?

This new trailer is so good. Enemies look insane. I'm terrified of the "Prepare to Die" comment at the end.

taken from the developer:

Dark Souls is an upcoming action role-playing game from the developers who brought you Demon’s Souls, FromSoftware. Dark Souls will have many familiar features: A dark fantasy universe, tense dungeon crawling, fearsome enemy encounters and unique online interactions. Dark Souls is a spiritual successor to Demon’s, not a sequel. Prepare for a new, despair-inducing world, with a vast, fully-explorable horizon and vertically-oriented landforms. Prepare for a new, mysterious story, centered around the King’s Crowns and the original, now dying flame at the center of the world. But most of all, prepare to die. You will face countless murderous traps, countless darkly grotesque monsters and several gargantuan, supremely powerful demons and dragons. You must learn from death to persist through this unforgiving world. And you aren’t alone. Dark Souls allows the spirits of other players to show up in your world, so you can learn from their deaths and they can learn from yours. New to Dark Souls is Beacon Fire, where you can share the experiences of your adventure with the spirits of other players. Around the Beacon Fire, you may find the only warmth and calm that exists in this dark world. Beware: There is no place in Dark Souls that is truly safe. With days of game play and an even more punishing difficulty level, Dark Souls will be the most deeply challenging game you play this year. Can you live through a million deaths and earn your legacy?

Skyrim Vs Dark Souls

What does everyone think? This guy at IGN seems to think Dark souls will trump Skyrim. What you guys reckon? I dont really know anything about either games, but I reckon skyrim looks amazing!

Skyrim

DS will be amazing, but elder scrolls is elder scrolls. Always wins GotY.

Comparing them is silly.

Skyrim will outsell Dark Souls, no question.

Both are fantastic in such different ways.

OMG this game is huge. I read a few pages in a starting walkthrough and through some forums and I came to the inclusion that this game is incredibly complex. If you kill/don't kill someone or join/don't join a faction or change a faction it has incredible ramification on the outcome of the story and the items you get. I was curious about the pendant gift you can pick but once i read a bit about it I now have a headache. This is going to be the biggest time vampire of all time for me.
Fuuuuu where to begin???
Oh by the way the game is awesome and is harder than demons souls. Fucking skeletons. Sad
