              The message of the picture is that it's a top-down chronological mural depicting the time of the Crucible, beasts gaining intelligence (the "brain" looking thing below the Crucible and above the Erdtree), the birth of the Erdtree, and the establishment of the Golden Order. Some other explanations for that mural are that it instead depicts the Crucible, baby Erdtree, mature Erdtree, and Golden Order. Or, instead, from down-top, it shows the Elden Ring, the Crucible, ???, and then the Erdtree.

              The Erdtree was originally the Crucible, sometime before the Erdtree was born beasts became intelligent, the Crucible became the Erdtree at the start of the war against the Giants, and the Golden Order was established after the Erdtree was born.

                idk i'd say Elden Ring and Dark Souls 1 are about equel in the amount of information they give us, its just that DS1's "story" is a lot simpler and classic, which is perfectly fine. Elden Ring is a "story" in a much more fleshed and complex setting and that shows in the into. There's already more going on.

                You probably spent hours/days researching it to arrive at your conclusions, DS was somewhat understandable right away but ER is not because there is so much shit going on. The only way to make sense of it is to make a conspiracy board and put a bunch of red string between pictures of item descriptions. It's a lot more difficult to feel a connection to the world when most things appear totally random.

                That is fun for some people but not most people, for most people there should be a story thread that is easy to follow and lets you make sense of the world in a pleasing manner. Enthusiasts that want more can delve into the busywork of figuring out hidden meanings and all that jazz but that enthusiast-level shit shouldn't be required to make sense of the world while playing through the game for the first time. I feel it lessens the impact of the game and it becomes less memorable for the majority of players.

                Nothing. There is no single, official lore or explanation for everything. It's just a bunch of random tidbits of information that can be interpreted in 1000 different ways. The point is that everything is still in the Hunter's Dream, or the Nightmare, and so IRL logic need not apply. It fits together however you think it fits, and it is true.

          3 of the good bosses out of bloodbornes like 7 total good bosses. Old hunters
          Has actual good levels that don’t look the same. Old hunters.

      Financial solvency for game devs is a push and pull between frontloading investment in their proprietary tools and milking them. All the engine work and workflow refinement they slogged through for Elden Ring can be harvested by a streamlined content from a much small team. It's the exact same dynamic as OOT -> MM. inb4 I'm a fromdrone for pointing out long-running industry common practices.

      Nobody told you yet so I will.
      This is a topic that was covered well by a Warcraft 3 developer on youtube once.

      Basically, while you're making a new game and it's all coming together, nothing is certain, a large chunk of development is like melted metal that hasn't taken shape yet.
      However, when you finish the game, all the assets come together, and you have a sort of rock solid foundation and complete certainty about the gameplay in its entirety, as well as the balance of things.
      Ironically, this is where people expect you to start working on a sequel, but you can see where I'm going with this, right?
      It only makes too much sense to create at least one expansion for any big game project, if it is well received, you get to expand on all the stuff you like, maybe experiment with stuff before a sequel or just try to push for some idea you didn't have time for.
      Making an expansion for a successful game is probably the most efficient use of dev time ever.

      Usually Fromsoft DLC is relatively small, but like other anon said they like to overhaul base game stuff as well.

        its legitimate uncharted territory
        bloodborne had a frick huge dlc (relatively) and it was only on ps+
        ds2 had both a re-release and THREE dlcs
        ds3 had a dogshit dlc and a god tier dlc that honestly should have been combined together like bloodborne's was
        Elden ring has a new open world system and is the most proffitable game fromsoft has made, they have so much goddamn money. With all the time shenanigans going on, i bet you will be exploring the main world but in a different time, the past.

      Back in my day we called them "expansion packs" and they were literally like mini sequels

      The modern concept of "DLC" has been a disaster for gaming in general.

    I fully expect that they had put a skeleton crew on that as well as general ER patching and focused mostly on Armored Core up until last summer. Some amount of work on their unannounced next title might also have been done, but the main point is that effectively there has been 6-10 months' worth of development on SotE.

        There is none, every company uses both terms interchangeably. Anyone telling you otherwise is just grasping for straws at any indication that the expansion is big (it probably will be but not because of that).

        DLC is technically the term for both now since it really just describes the distribution method and physical is dead, but traditionally expansions would have a substantial amount of new content and cost about a third to half the base game's price, whereas what would initially be distinguished as DLC would be low-effort $0-$10 bullshit like horse armor or a couple new maps of questionable quality. From's Dark Souls and Bloodborne DLCs have all been traditional expansions. The Sekiro and Armored Core updates adding little bits of new content and boss rush/multiplayer features are more in line with what the rest of the industry considers DLC.

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        Real answer: dlc is standalone content that seldom affects the game setting and mechanics at its core and is usually small. Expansions both change the base game by a significant amount and add new content while expanding existing content. Lord of Destruction, Ashes of Malmouth, and The Burning Crusade were expansions; armor packs and new maps are a dlc.

      if you think things are bad now, you obviously weren't around prior to the announcement.

      Fromsoft is pretty shit at communication, or at least they don't like revealing much about what they are working on. Not sure if it's just them being obtuse japs or if they are aware of how much hype their vague announcements get when they follow long periods of silence

    I said this before and I'll say it again. You should be looking at March release window. If it doesn't happen until the end of March, then you're free to keep doomposting for another year. It's still January.

          If you consider "Has cut content" as the way to characterize the game as "unfinished" then literally EVERY SINGLE GAME EVER is unfinished.

            No, unfinished is unfinished.
            If you consider das2-3 as unfinished the rest of the series more than qualifies.

              Evidence that DS2 and 3 are "unfinished"?

    I hope we will get a lot of Miquella and not just a boss fight.

        Guess I'll have to get that fricking SSD in there to make it have bearable load times.
        I didn't know how bad it was until I saw the light.

        You can still go offline, cheat add item/runes and go back online after you're done if you want to save time.
