So, the game finally has a name, and it's Dark Souls.

It seems that they are making the game with a strong emphasis on exploration. There's also this "mutual roleplaying" system mentioned in the article, but there's not much info at the moment.

Thanks!

btw, Dark Souls = RPGoTY. That is all.

I really hope Dark Souls makes it out in the west this year.

From Andriasang:

Quote
  • The difficulty has been increased greatly over Demon's Souls.

So it's either as difficult as or more difficult than Demon's Souls. Cool.

I really hope there is a dedicated co-op mode implemented so I can choose to play with my friend easily.  I did enjoy the random aspect of the online modes in Demon's Souls, but just having the option to team up with a buddy easily will make this better.

Of course, you can play with friends in Demon's Souls, it's just a pain in the ass and takes time to get going smoothly.

Agreed. But I guess they solved that problem:

Quote from: duckroll - GAF
This time there will be more features allowing players to engage in "mutual role playing" which they say are still under wraps. They'll reveal more when it's time.

More exploration is good news. Exploration has always been one of the strongest points of King`s Field.

Yeah, this is easily one of my most anticipated games going by the info so far. Planning on the PS3 version here.

That is pretty awesome =D  Though Demon's Souls continues to kick my ass and I can only play it for 15min at a time before I have to go "walk it off", I still love the game and the idea of it.

I'm a little sad Atlus won't be getting it :(

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

I'm rather keen myself! Need to finish Demon's Souls, though. Here goes nothing!
