Is Elden Ring the new Dark Souls?
If Elden Ring is being pitched as the “new Dark Souls”, it’s mainly because it’s a game developed by FromSoftware, the studio behind the saga. Elden Ring is not part of the Dark Souls series, even if its gameplay is very much inspired by it: unlike the famous franchise, Elden Ring takes place in open mode and offers free exploration of the Underworld, for the first time in a studio game, a map available to players that will need to be recreate. Another novelty, never before seen in Dark Souls, the vehicle will allow you to move around the open world, as well as fight on your back. Otherwise, the gameplay is based on the well-known achievements of the players of the famous RPG series: classes to choose from, dark and gloomy environments filled with ferocious and unpredictable enemies, a lot of deaths in the program, but the rewards are up to the delicate fights that you will have to face!
Does Elden Ring have an easy mode?
FromSoftware games like Dark Souls have deservedly earned a reputation for being difficult games. Elden Ring won’t be an exception to the rule and won’t offer a choice of difficulty mode, however some elements are meant to make the experience a bit more accessible for players, in part because it’s an open world and not all normal. Dark Souls difficulty components can fit into this type of build. Thus, in certain areas, it will be possible to resurrect next to your corpse in order to collect lost runes (the equivalent of souls). The mount will make it easier for you to get out of sticky situations (although it won’t win the fight), and you will be able to summon spirits that can attract the attention of enemies or fight them (even if they don’t). be called only under certain conditions and have their own lifespan). According to Hidetaka Miyazaki, game director, Elden Ring does not aim to be less complex, but above all more accessible, mainly due to its open world, which allows for more variation in development and approach.
What is the lifespan of Elden Ring?
We already know that Elden Ring is a difficult game, but its producer has a rough idea of how many hours it will take to complete it. According to Yasuhiro Kitao, it will take about 30 hours to complete the main story of Elden Ring, which of course is an estimate since each player’s profile is different. We can indeed assume that this prediction is based on players’ experience with previous FromSoftware games, meaning that Elden Ring could take at least 50 hours to complete for many players. In addition, the manufacturer also said that on the sidelines of the main story, the game offers a lot of quests and secondary content that will take several dozen extra hours. So get ready to spend some time in Elden Ring!
