New beautiful screenshots surface for Elden Ring

This screenshot in particular looks really fake to me, I don't know how to explain it but the visuals, the overall scene, it looks like a weird mockup or something, there's something off about it, definitely doesn't look like ingame screenshot.
nah. This is totally in game. Just small image so it looks better

Oh no.

Not more expertly crafted gameplay that requires consideration, perseverance and skill… which results in the most cathartic, visceral and enjoyable reaction from everyone who plays and enjoys it.

What a fucking disaster.
yeah 2001 : space Odyssey is a masterpiece but if u do 15 movies exactly like that ..just changing the actors and spaceship and some scenes ...after all ..you get bored no matter what
for this reason Kubrick did not 10 movies using the same formula...that said i respect the niche who want the same again........I'm not one of them

I finished DS3, enjoyed it but it was too stressful for me. Don't felt like playing other From Software games, but this one is really tempting me....

Aside from Metroid and SMT V, this is my most anticipated game. Can't wait.

Kubrick had a style of storytelling, visualisation, art direction and themes that were unique to him. You knew a Kubrick movie when you saw one. The same applies to From. They are one of the only game devs that come close to auteurship.

And you can’t even compare games to movies, because the genre scope for movies is far larger than gaming. Gaming only lends itself to limited genre types.

I'm going to accept that Bloodborne is never coming to PC at this point.
I'll pretend elden ring is a bloodborne spiritual successor.

😥
unless it has step dodging as it's main evasive maneuver, it won't be as good. rolling ruined all the demon and dark souls games for me

art direction 10
gameplay ...is the same game all over again.
OH NO. WE HAVE SO MUCH OF THESE GAMES ALL THE TIME

Demons Souls 2009 - Sekiro 2019
That's 6 games. 6 games for 10 years... and these are all different, unique games to the point that people prefer ds1 over 3, 3 over 1, 2 etc...
 
These people likes to stare at grass in the game counting their pixels, while others keep putting raytracing on everything.
No, it's just the hardware that is underutilized. It's a sad fact and reason that it's sad because the game have a killer art-style plus litself may be a very good game to say the least. .
Also cross-gen title.
And those images are supersampled and may not be "in-game". We had such shots on their previous games.

I used to hate bullshots but not anymore; even if they are, so what? We're at a point now where even a B tier developer could get their game looking like that. There's no reason to think this game will look like ass.

I don't understand why people think the images are bullshots.
Look perfectly reasonable to me for pc or next gen consoles.

6 games in 10 years are quite a lots when we know that production time is around 3 years .....imagine that you have more soulslike from them that blockbusters like uncharted or god of war
people always prefer one game over another also between the same serie it's nothing new

I agree with the people saying they look touched up

Weird light sources and shadowing that don't make much sense and like its been run through some sharpening and softening filters

This is kind of like complaining that first person shooters all have the same controls

Almost every Miyazaki FromSoft game has a grittiness to it's graphics that has practically become as much a staple of their work as the dark and twisted art direction that look straight out of the Berserk graphic novels themselves.

I think this is one of the reason the new Demons Souls rubs some the wrong way, it's a stunningly beautiful game, but also seems far more clean then the rest

I will be excited for the people who are excited for these games, but for me they are way too stressful when I am in combat. It's a shame because outside of combat I love the way these souls games look and feel atmosphere wise. it makes me wish I could mod a game on console somehow to remove all enemies and traps and just walk my character around every in the world. Especially Dark Souls 1. I'd also disable environmental kills like falls from various heights. I know it would cease to be a game at that point, but it reminds me of all those out of bounds videos on youtube that pc players make.

Like this:


I didn't know there was an N64 version of Dark Souls.

real question will be will I play this on my PC (3060 Ti, 1440p165hz) or just go XSX for the 4K big screen and HDR

Time to rest until this gem comes out. I don't need anything more, it's a slam dunk. Too bad there is no way to make bets on a game's success/sales :p.

It looks revolutionary. You can tell, George R.R. Martin's input helped to create something truly extraordinary. It will definitely breathe new life into an industry that's been struggling to come up with new things.

So anybody whining about it being cross-gen?

Because other threads are pretty much dominated by that sentiment.

That’s because the other games only rely on their graphics for people to like them. From Software fans live in a higher state and couldn’t care less about Digital Foundry austism. We just want to play the game.

Everyone is hoping for the first console FS game with stable framerate and framepacing so ER being cross gen could allow that LOL.
