The great Hidetaka Miyazaki has released some new details of Elden Ring, the new work of the authors of the Dark Souls saga, which the Japanese creative defines as a natural evolution of his well-known series of action and role adventures. ” Its essence is not very different from that of Dark Souls “, explains, ” but this does not mean that the action is identical ”
” Elden Ring belongs to the same genre ” Miyazaki apostille, with important changes in the way it confronts you with the challenges it proposes. ” With a bigger world, new systems and action mechanics become more necessary. In this sense, I believe that Elden Ring is the natural evolution of Dark Souls. “
The bet for an open world is one of the most important changes in the game.” While the sinuous, complex dungeons of previous jobs were interconnected, the Elden Ring scenarios will be much more open and larger, ” explains the head of FromSoftware. ” The game mechanics have been designed with this new type of environment in mind. ” We will continue to find dangerous dungeons with a typical structure of the Metroidvania, but the open world will contribute to give players greater freedom of action and a greater variety of combats.
We will explore this fantasy world on horseback, And we can even fight on horseback As we advanced in the past E3 2019, Elden Ring will have an open world without settlements. ” The towns will be the dark dungeons that you would expect from us ” reports Miyazaki, since otherwise it would have been a great challenge fo r the FromSoftware team.
On the story, the Japanese creative highlighted that George R.R. Martin takes charge of the history of the world in which Elden Ring is set, with a narrative more typical of Dark Souls than Sekiro. There are two reasons why the author of Game of Thrones does not write the main story of the game. ” Telling stories in video games, at least in the way that FromSoftware does, has many more restrictions for a writer. I did not think it was a good idea to have Martin write with those restrictions ”
” By having him write about a time when the player is not directly related, he would have more freedom to write the way he wants. like Also “, continue Miyazaki, ” in FromSoftware we did not want to create a linear story for Elden Ring ” Thus, players will be free to explore the game world and, step by step, they will obtain clues and data about the dark fantasy universe in which the action takes place, much like the Dark Souls series.
