It'd be slower paced combat with more emphasis on timing and resource management, the opposite of BB and DS3
It doesn't resort to swarming you with large numbers of tough enemies for challenge instead opting for environmental hazards or other strategic focused challenges.
The world design focuses on interconnectivity and non linearity, it'd also be harder to simply run past enemies from the bonfire to the boss with fewer bonfires in the world. Warping would be available from the 2nd half of the game.
The rest doesn't matter as much, just get those right.

Also, BB-tier weapons.

Have the company go back to making Armored Core with soul feature.

Hunter Evans

Low Fantasy Nioh. Although I still want the Fantasy in it, just a little less actual magic, and dramatically more raw melee combat.

David Sullivan

Chromehounds 2
Then another Armored Core like the older AC games.
Then Demon's Souls without how shitty Dark/bb made the series.

with soul feature
Literally how would you do this

Only if they fucking balance the game properly.

Pretty much Dark Souls but a bit better in terms of content. Keep the mechanics pretty much the same.

I just want Armored Core 6 is that so much to ask for

I wish NPC interactions were more intricate and that you could even choose to make friends or enemies of them through choices that were more complex than YES or NO. There are covenants but that shit has been barebones and one dimensional for 5 games straight. There are characters like Lautrec but that doesn't really involve the player, they just kind of "happen" and the only real choice is killing them sooner or later.

Dark Souls where you play as insects in a post-apocalyptic world where all humans are gone.

Camden Flores

make laser sword more of a primary weapon
make energy useage more forgivable
go full Muv Luv enemies wise if you have to if you think corporate sabotage and mercs isn't enough

I would be fine if they just release the series for the PC with an online feature

Grayson Cox

This except also greatly increase the discrepancy between early game and late game.

A slower, less linear ARPG with wider weapon variety starting off the way you do in DS1 and ending up as a top-tier Dragon's Dogma character would be GOAT.

This series needs to come back, come to PC, drop the fucking NEXTs and give us Armored Cores back, and actually be good.

And dramatically more raw melee combat
So Bushido Blade where you die in one hit?

Something closer to Dark Souls 2, but actually working.

a souls game that revolves around a suit of armor overgrown by vines
its the only thing that comes to mind at the moment

It's not, if you're interested go ahead and play it. Cred Forums is hyperbole incarnate, always remember that.

LW builds are extremely overpowered, especially kusa LW builds. That said, it doesn't really matter unless you plan to do really high abyss floors.

Jonathan Barnes

I don't know. I don't even watch anime, but I'm always into it when I see this stuff. It just looks cool.

Nicholas Cooper

Soulsfags who played Nioh momentarily forgot that you're a faggot if you're doing any kind of magic build, so they spent points into Ninjustu/Omnyo Magic/LW and cheesed the game with it.

Robert Martin
Robert Martin

It'd have the same mechanics, but the setting would be a Norse Mythological theme, with killing the gods like Odin, Loki, etc. Basically God of war 4, but with a souls format

Christopher Martin

Andrew Perry

He's talking about the really high difficulty levels in which, like most games, only a few builds are even relevant. But by then you've likely played through all the game's content 2-3 times and got your fill of it.

Jack Stewart
Jack Stewart

Eh, that sounds kind of boring. At least pick a more interesting and further flung mythology to make Souls-clone on. Mayan, Hindu, Chinese mythology is filled with fucking bizarre shit.

Anthony White

Dude, it would be like skyrim, but with swords.

But nah, I love Norse and Viking lore, there's a lot more cool and crazy shit to it than just the gods

Honestly would like to see them make a Souls type game with a cyberpunk setting, but people have beat them to it, so now the novelty is gone.

Probably cyberpunk or far-future game with a layer of ancient Mesoamerican/Aztec aesthetics and mythology on top of it. Like pic related with more hanging cables, prosthetics and a laser macuahuitl.

20 bucks it's a Tenchu-style game.

Aiden Wilson

I think they should make a feudal japan style game where each area has verticality that the player can jump to and from like tree branches or poles. This would be like a ninja type game with an interesting dodge and agility system where you can try and get the drop on enemies from many diffrent angles, there would also be various different monsters and enemies that could climb aswell or have area denial capabilties to block certain paths in the vertical landscape to mix up game play.

Forgive pic related, strangely only image I could find is slightly similar to what I was talking about

Let's have a Souls game where you aren't expected to just run right through every area, right past the enemies in order to fight the boss. Have it so that you'll almost always get killed if you try to evade most of the enemies and put a fucking bonfire before the bossfight.

Alexander Watson

Let It Die...?

Nah its a bloodborne spinoff based on the land where old hunter Yamamura came from.

If it had anything to do with Bloodborne you would've seen a Sony logo in the commercial

Joshua Adams

Bushido Blade Souls would be rad, though you'd need a recovery mechanic so you didn't have to crawl back to the bonfire when your legs get hit.

Jace Foster
Jace Foster

expected
you are expected to fight the enemies and only run past them if you die to the boss and are gonna try again. In no way are you fucking "expected" to just run past everything like a pussy.

Chase Morris
Chase Morris

I'm sure it'll come later. The name itself is a big indicator its a souls series game.
Its basically gonna be ninja bloodborne. Ninjas are shadows and dying twice is a reference to souls game and being undead who dies.

Perhaps not bloodborne bit most definitely related to it.

Blame! souls would be great. Although I'm more of the notion that I want a Blame! Zone of the Enders clone.

I'd really want to see a Soulslike set in Valhalla.

like actual Valhalla. Where it would make sense that you're constantly dying and showing back up again, because it's a place all about the joys of honorable battle.

Have players going through this whole nordic landscape and fighting norse creatures and mythical legends and junk, and then eventually fight your way towards Odin hinself.

And the whole thing is really supportive and fun vs really dark and oppressive. Like a mood of "Fuck it, get in there and FIGHT. because if it was easy, it wouldn't be any fun!"

that sort of thing.

Kevin Peterson

this would be great, i can picture from making some nordic themed stuff after DaS too considering how the games are pretty westaboo, and the mystery/lack of things known about norse mythology fits the cryptic "lore" the other games have
although im not sure about how one would combine joyful and dark gloomy nordic stuff and make it work.

Robert Myers

DS1 world design but with absolutely no warping available.
Slow pace.
Focus on environmental interaction
Dark/Melancholic tone from art to music to narrative/world building
No difficulty modes

I feel like when the world reaches a certain size no warping would just become tedious. Giving it at the halfway point like Dark Souls does should be ideal.

Austin Hughes

it has severe water damage so you're trudging through waist high smelly water for 90% of the level

I'd like to see some sort of futuro-feudal scifi souls on a giant o'neill cylinder where you will explore basically the entire inner area and has 60% of the game hanging over your head all of the time. Also for ranged combat to not be pathetically ass for once. Plus NPCs could have more interactivity and you could probably add some minor puzzle or platforming elements, just to round out the dungeon crawl you know.

Xavier Lopez

Shit, with a continuous map that would be fucking awesome

Logan Lopez
Logan Lopez

yes, dark souls already did the "see that shit in the distance, you'll go there" but now you can take it to the next level. Plus you can have a part where you like dock with another space station and see the entire thing slowly come towards you through the giant windows (it's functional, they allow for agriculture) and then go on a long space walk between them
