Will this blood fountain ship with the collector's edition?

Apparently the "A" team is working on it, with miyazaki and those guise. Not that the "B" team did poorly, but they got a lot of flak and lots relate to them not having miyazaki in charge for some reason.

To be honest I had 0 hype when I saw the screenshots and trailers ...

I will most likely buy and play the game on launch, but man, DS2 really fucked with my hype.

I am more hyped for Bloodborne on PC than another Souls game. It's getting old...

   After playing Bloodborne for some hours in different parts of the story on a friends PS4, I can say easily that the gameplay of the Souls series is superior in almost every way. It really disappointed me. Not even going to mention the joke PvP is.
   On the upper hand, the moody visuals and amazing OST make up for some of these faults.
   

   Let's hope they don't go Ubisoft on Souls series, with dump half-assed yearly releases, or even with a DLC's to buy Estus Flasks for 9.99€.  :lol:

Feel like they're saturating the market, WITH THEIR OWN DAMN GAMES!!!!!

Too many games in too short a space of time, it's not good for the consumer (lack of hype, rushed product, bored of genre) and it's not good for marketing.

Who in their right mind decided to overlap Dark Souls 2's last DLC with Bloodborne? And now we're immediately going to get a Dark Souls 3? C'mon... give us some time. Atm they're in a decent position because noone else makes Souls-like games even half as well, but they're competing with themselves to start mass production like this.

I actually though they would get a new name for the next souls game. But then again riding on the name "Dark Souls" is pretty much free PR.

I wonder if they will let invaders play with the boss like in the Mirror Knight or even as the boss. That would be supercool.

In Demon Souls invaders at the end of world 3 would invade as the final boss for that world.  Killing someone as the boss of world 3 was in fact the only way to get the enhanced magic damage headwrap tornado of LoS-blocking.

I believe they just want to make it a series, with lore that is connected in some ways. I think the reason why they switched away from Demons souls to begin with was to make a game that is a multi consol IP, otherwise we might have had demons souls 4..

As Dark Souls makes the leap to a new generation of consoles, developer From Software wants to evolve the series' combat, provide new ways to role-play and increase the viable range of character builds, the franchise's creator says.

Quote
Game director and Souls series creator Hidetaka Miyazaki showed a gameplay demonstration of Dark Souls 3 at an E3 2015 presentation today, highlighting what's changing in the sequel and how From Software hopes to expand upon the series' trademark features.

Quote
Miyazaki described the "world view" of Dark Souls 3 as "not just dark," but with a withered beauty. It's a world littered with ember and ash, dimly lit by a faded sun. The world of Dark Souls 3 aims for full immersion in dark fantasy, Miyazaki said, with dynamic light sources and wind-blown ash and cloth effects.

Quote
The game's story will continue the tale of a lord-slaying dark hero and the "Lord of Cinder."

Quote
Miyazaki said From Software hopes to deepen the series' combat mechanics with the introduction of what it calls weapon arts. This new mechanic adds another layer to hand-to-hand combat, giving players additional attacks that are specific to certain weapon types. Miyazaki said he hopes the addition will boost the diversity of sword action and risk/reward strategy.

Quote
As an example, Miyazaki showed off how players will be able to use a straight sword to enter a "ready stance." From that stance, players can launch two different types of attacks: one that delivers a devastating blow designed to break an enemy's guard and another that quickly closes the distance between the player and their target.

Quote
The weapon arts for the game's greatswords are different. Instead of entering a stance, the player can lunge forward, boosting their poise, and unleash powerful attacks that cause great damage or launch an opponent into the air. Miyazaki showed how dual-wielding a pair of scimitars works with weapon arts as well; players can unleash a powerful spin move that can quickly dispatch a tightly-packed group of undead enemies.

Quote
The new weapon mechanic also extends to ranged weapons. Using a short bow, players can use weapon arts to quickly fire off arrows while strafing and dodge-rolling. The option to target and fire from far away is still there, but short bow weapon arts make bows much more effective in fast paced combat situations.

Quote
Miyazaki mentioned two sources of inspiration for the new weapon arts: Guts from Berserk when describing how greatsword combat is changing, and The Lord of the Rings' speedy archer Legolas.

Quote
During our hands-off walkthrough of Dark Souls 3, Miyazaki said that the game world will feature a greater sense of exploration than in previous installments. That sense of exploration sounded like the standard "See that castle in the distance? You can go there!" promises, but in the environment we saw at E3, a region called the Wall of Lodeleth, there seemed to be more branching paths and a sense of open exploration than in previous games.

Quote
The dark medieval setting of Dark Souls 3 will look immediately familiar to fans of the series, boosted by a sense of apocalyptic decay present throughout the fantasy environments we saw. The air is thick with the ash of a decaying dragon. Undead creatures and knights roam the streets and dark hallways of the game world, including familiar foes like undead dreglings and rabid, desiccated dogs. A giant fire-breathing dragon, a Miyazaki favorite, presented opportunity for instant death.

Quote
One moment that From Software showed that piqued our interest was on a rooftop environment, where a cluster of undead creatures were seen praying to some unknown force. One undead approached the player aggressively, and a black, dragon-like creature burst forth from his body. It actually appeared more like the dragon — liquid and not fully formed — partially slipped through some tear in reality, immediately reminding me of creatures seen in the original Dark Souls' Abyss.

Quote
Miyazaki's demo culminated in a battle against one of the game's bosses, a creature known as the Dancer of the Frigid Valley. The lanky, armored creature moved like nothing else we've seen in a Souls game to date; it skulked slowly around the environment, almost as if it were swimming through the cathedral in which the battle took place. With its iron veil and an ethereal, shimmering cape, the dancer had feminine qualities, Miyazaki pointed out. It's a formidable foe: The dancer wields a burning, curved sword that left scorched marks on the ground when it struck. Columns around the battle arena burned when the dancer slashed them, making them feel less like a structure to hide behind, and more of a hazard.

Quote
n familiar Dark Souls boss fashion, the dancer switched up its attacks when its health was depleted to a point. Mid-battle, it summoned forth a second sword, this one coated in ash, from what appeared to be a separate dimension. The boss then lived up to its name, pirouetting with both swords drawn and unleashing a dual-elemental, extended series of attacks. The player knight fell before we saw the dancer defeated.

Quote
Miyazaki indicated that ash will be a new element type in Dark Souls 3. He didn't come right out and say it, but ash appears to be a frequently used theme in the game world.

Quote
Here are some other random things I noticed during the demo:
  • Players will discover small gravestones hidden throughout the world. Players can "offer flame" to those stones, letting them to read the epitaph chiseled upon them. Those inscriptions will offer hints about the story.
  • The torch from Dark Souls 2 returns. In Dark Souls 3, however, players can not only equip it to light up an area, they can also raise it higher to boost the effect.
  • The estus flask is back. The icon in the UI will actually show that the flask is depleting as players get down to their final few swigs.
  • Miyazaki said he wanted to make the game's knights — a terrifying foe in the early hours of Demon's Souls — more powerful. It looks like he has succeeded.

So basically, set in medieval environment that is decaying and full of ash and filth. Extra addition to combat system in form of weapon arts (special weapon specific moves that work like skills in aRPGs). Game will probably be harder than previous. Miyazaki san found a way to stop people reading online guides by adding gravestones that explain the story to those who aren't capable of figuring it out themselves.

Sounds promising, but no video? Were they not allowed to tape it or what?

Interested to see how GS combat will change then. GS combat is the most fun for me in Souls games. Especially in PvP where you actually have to spend a little more time thinking rather than just mashing R1 to get off your dex weapon spam. All about the bait.
