    Elden Ring review: Come see the softer side of punishing difficulty

    news.movim.eu / ArsTechnica · Wednesday, 23 February - 15:00 · 1 minute

OK, a little to your right. Little more... there. Hold it. OK, say "cheese."

I’ve never been able to get very deep into Demon’s Souls or any of the thematically similar follow-ups developer From Software has become known for in recent years. The last time I seriously tried, delving into Dark Souls II in 2014, I documented the “maddeningly beautiful suffering” I endured while dying 65 times in an eight-hour slog to beat a single boss.

While that experience gave me some appreciation for From Software’s uncompromising game design, it was also enough to convince me that I didn’t have the temperament to pour dozens of hours into these sorts of games. I get why so many people find this unforgiving style appealing, and I’ve even willingly dipped my toes into From Software’s further catalog from time to time. But I just couldn’t overcome the frustration factor necessary to really commit to a deep dive into these meticulously crafted worlds.

Then the buzz began for Elden Ring , the latest game in what has become known as From's “Soulsborne” style. Director Hidetaka Miyazaki promised in interviews that the new title would be more accessible than his previous From Software work, with quality-of-life improvements like more frequent checkpoints, easier health management, and an open world design that doesn’t gatekeep progress behind nigh-impossible bosses.

“I don’t want to enforce any playstyle or particular route because I’d like [players] to experience that sense of freedom,” Miyazaki said. “And I realize that while we offer games with a high level of challenge, we design them in a way that feels fulfilling to overcome.”

Last month, publisher Namco Bandai took down its online player-versus-player servers for all PC Dark Souls games after players found a serious vulnerability that allowed for remote execution of malicious code on an opponent's computer. While a Reddit user who publicly identified that issue said the exploit would also work on Namco Bandai's upcoming Elden Ring , the publisher is now assuring players that the highly anticipated title will be protected.

"We have extended the investigation to Elden Ring ... and have made sure the necessary security measures are in place for this title on all target platforms," Namco Bandai wrote in a tweet Wednesday morning.

The wording of that statement suggests that Elden Ring 's online services will launch as expected when the game is released on February 25. That's important for players looking forward to online co-op gameplay, competitive multiplayer battles/invasions, and even basic message support between player worlds, as seen in Dark Souls .
