@colonelkilgore I don't think so, colonel, cross-gen games generally have to look similar enough on PS4 that the PS5 graphics are dragged down by their PS4 equivalents as the developers have to meet in the middle for cross-gen, as far as I understand it. Thus far, it's only been announced for PS4, Xbox and PC.

You maybe right... on both counts. What I would say though, is although DeS Remake supposedly is the best (there or thereabouts) looking game available on any system right now, there is an interview on DF with Bluepoint where they state that in an effort not to corrupt/alter the core DeS (PS3) code, the remake is only operating off about a quarter of the GPU’s cores (I might have the specific detail off a little but it was along those lines). I wouldn’t be surprised (either way really) if the PS5 version of Elden Ring looks as good as DeS Remake.

Edit. Also, for what little it is worth, the cross-gen Miles Morales (PS5 version) just got rated DF’s second best looking game of the year... ahead of the next gen only DeS Remake.

@colonelkilgore In that case, WOW, if Elden Ring fully utilises the GPU's cores, it could blow DeS out of the water, and then we should all take advantage of the fact that it looks infinitely better on the PS5. Incidentally, did you see today's Elden Ring news? (rumor) https://wccftech.com/elden-ring-alleged-concept-art-leak/

No I hadn’t seen that news, so thanks for sharing.

In regards to the info and rumours I have provided, it’s all obviously supposition and hearsay at the moment. Although I would definitely want the next gen versions of Elden Ring out at the games initial launch... I would happily play it on PS4, if then I could get another plat for it when it releases on PS5. If the trophies are’nt stackable, I’d probably wait for the PS5 version if it is to arrive later.

I’d just like to add that the last game we had a dedicated ‘hype thread’ for was Cyberpunk so yeah, the entire concept seems to be flawed. Getting hyped about games before we’ve even seen what it truly looks like just doesn’t appeal to me.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@nessisonett
You make a very good point, I personally wasn’t ‘that’ excited for CP2077 but I am as excited as I’ve ever been for a game with this... so I’m hoping this is not a bad omen.

To be fair, the Cyberpunk thread was created at the beginning of this year, only a few months away from the initial release and after we had seen a a couple of trailers with about an hours worth of gameplay.

I see no harm in it. If you don't like it or have no interest in the game, just don't post in the thread.

I do... I thought it would be released in 2021 anyway but this just solidifies it for me. I’m hoping Q1 or Q2. See you then Draco.

@TheBrandedSwordsman I thought of you when I saw all the Elden Ring rumors dropping the last few days. Are you getting hyped? Looks like we’ll probably get more info soon.

@Th3solution Definitely hyped/trying not to go hollow! Yeah possibly a new trailer at the Microsoft event on the 23rd. What do you think?

I've not seen it, but the video leaked earlier and the authenticity of it is being questioned. Ms have confirmed that there will be no announcements for the game at any of their events this month too. So I guess the wait for any official announcement continues.

@TheBrandedSwordsman I’m not sure, but for your sake I hope we get some info soon!

I've seen the footage. The minute long trailer too.

It... sure is more dark souls looking gameplay with the addition of horseback combat? The footage is fairly bad quality though and kinda ruins the whole thing. Art design/direction looks nice as it always does in a fromsoft game.

... Not much more to really say though about it beside apparently the footage is a year old, an internal trailer that was never supposed to be seen and is from an earlier build of the game so things could be changed up a fair bit.

Saw the footage.

I'm open to this being decent. Maybe with an actual fantasy writer on board they'll be more inclined to have... I dunno... narrative? Characters?

SURELY an open world Souls game would have a map, right?

@Ralizah Unless I missed something, it is not going to be fully open world, just more open world like areas than before. That is one of the things that most people enjoy about the games, finding your own way around the world and using the excellent world design to help in this. When I've played the games, I've never thought they could do with a map, not once.

@Th3solution @colonelkilgore Look here I'm handing it to you on a plate now! 🤣 [spoiler]

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy @Ralizah This is an upscaled version, dunno if you have seen it already. I reckon the game will be excellent, even if it has changed quite a bit by now, the basic (core) elements should still be there, it looks very From Software-esque does it not? I think I caught a glimpse of someone using a Greatsword in one of the early combat scenes by the way, Foxy, also I hope the multi-limbed amorphous blob-type boss makes the final cut, the one holding a shield, as I reckon he/she/it looks like a great boss .

@JohnnyShoulder I was constantly getting lost in Bloodborne. It was miserable. A game can have great world design AND have maps that allow people to situate themselves in their environment.

Frankly, when I think about heavily exploration-driven games that lack some sort of map function, I'm immediately reminded of games on the NES. The Legend of Zelda and Metroid are similarly baffling without some sort of map feature, which is likely why both games featured map systems when their SNES entries released. And even Zelda came with a physical map in the box, from what I recall.

It feels like the sort of basic design feature that almost any other developer would be mercilessly ripped for if their games happened to lack it.

I've been fine with no maps before in the souls games @Ralizah (Though Code Vein shows it doesn't take much away from the experience by including one) but I have to admit if it's truly "open world" a map would really come in handy for this as I would totally get lost otherwise 😄


I'm not sure why you're signalling me out about Greatswords there @TheBrandedSwordsman... It's kind of a given they'd be there and I really don't use them all that much! Though you could be saying you're going to make a guts build in it 😅

And yeah I already said it looked like more Dark Souls/A FromSoftware game and honestly I kinda know what to expect more or less... Aside from a few bells and whilstles (Like there seems to be a crouch button or The horseback combat), a new setting and such it's not that much different from other Souls games 😄
