    This is why the industry needs to get away from announcing games before they can realistically put it in front of press and consumers. FO4 remains, in my mind, the gold standard for how to handle a games announcement, marketing and release.

    I'd say at a minimum you should be able to show a decent length section of actual gameplay for sure. A playable demo can be a tall ask if it's not substantially finished, though that's probably more helpful when there's stuff people might be unsure about compared to new iterations in a franchise.

    I wonder how much of it is that Microsoft is in charge of marketing for Elden Ring this go around instead of how Sony handled Bloodborne. Maybe they're being heavy handed with it for some reason

    . . .are they? It would make sense. SEKIRO, DS3 and BB all released within a year of announcement if I am remembering correctly and had proper drip feeds for press and consumers.

    Having said that, I like what I see (anyone surprised at Soulmass being in the game - come on, of course this is Open World Dark Souls) and the description of GRRM's involvement I'm fine with (light world building, leave the rest to Miyazaki and Co).

    Saw this last night.



    Honestly it looks very early in development, and a lot looks like a sort of storyboard for a CGI trailer.

    some Xbox event I think, and Xbox has marketing rights to Elden Ring so would more than likely be shown at one of their events

    ? didn't say it would be shown for sure, just that if it is shown it would more than likely be at an Xbox event because they have marketing rights

    SGF stream starts in two hours or so. I'm not aware of anything saying when--or even confirming concretely, they've been super coy about it--Elden Ring stuff would be showing.

    If they had an Elden Ring announcement in the waiting, I feel like they'd put info out as soon as possible on when it would be announced and just use social media to build the hype.

    Of course, they could just keep it up their sleeve and get people to watch by winks and nods.

    Just based on the stuff Geoff Keighley's been tweeting, I'm pretty confident they'll have something for Elden Ring at SGF--even if it turns out to not be much. Jokes about finally getting out of gamer jail etc, which was itself a meme about about how he mentioned Elden Ring without having anything to show during, iirc, the VGAs.

    Still worried the combat might be Sekiro fast, but we'll see. That was a good trailer though.

    Just in case that repeatedly confirmed leaker on ResetEra needed more confirmation, it is definitely a deer thing/'yakul' and not a horse.

    So if that's representative game play I'd say they are leaning more towards Sekiro/Bloodborne with this than Dark Souls. This is not a bad thing as Sekiro plays with a refinement that shows how well From has mastered their toolset. If they can bring that refinement of play back to an RPG world, with the grim dark fantasy lore backing it...I'm about it.

    I am starting a letter campaign to ensure this game has Sekiro-style combat and is 70% boss fights by volume, sorry

    Speed looked about Bloodborne ish to me. The PC is shown holding shields a few times so it probably won't be full on Sekiro rhythm game.

    Part of what made Sekiro so balanced was the lack of customizability. I don't think you can have both impactful rpg elements and equivalent combat.

    If you can choose between combat styles that prioritize Sekiro-style parrying and others (e.g. holding block) that would be great

    Just let me get sick parries on entire combos, please

    I think the combat will likely hew closer to Bloodborne, but I think the other game play elements I saw looked Sekiro'ish. Enhanced movement and stuff.
