I'm a massive souls fan. I'm trying to not watch anything on this but I did have a very quick look. Excited much,. :-)

Bumping this back up to the first page since it's nearly here. I'm a massive souls fan and really looking forward to this. I just hope that it's going to run well on PC. With it being the first game I've pre-ordered since Cyberpunk 2077 I'm not sure if that's a good omen, From don't necessarily have form for this kind of thing.

New trailer popped up yesterday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT8if6DXOFQ along with quite a few people streaming gameplay.

Have u played other Souls / From Software games?

I'm continuing to ignore any media on Eldenring and have my pre-order in. Hoping to enjoy it all as an unspoiled surprise.

Yeah if you’ve not played any Souls games it’s worth picking up Dark Souls 3, must be able to find it these days for around £10 and just giving it a go. Honestly a masterpiece.

Seems I played a bit of dark souls on the 360 many many years ago looking at my achievements but I don't remember smile only got 75 so obviously didn't play it too long

Actually last achievement was 03/05/2013 so yeah

Agreed. I tried Dark Souls (one) and sort of enjoyed it, up to a point. Then just lost interest. In part due to the difficulty / the way the game punishes you for the smallest of mistakes, but also because it just wasn't that interesting. The monsters and stuff were cool and all but the complete lack of exposition just left me bored.

And that's fine. Different strokes for different folks.

Very polarising games, you either seem to be in the "too hard, got bored" or "OMG it's a masterpiece" camp. I'm definitely in the former - the fact that it took me two hours to win the tutorial fight in DS3 was a bit of a sign that it wasn't really for me biggrin

Very efficient way to purchase :-).

I bought the day one physical release for PS5. I collect games and prefer to have something to trade in or sell at a later date.
