    Since when? I've seen a few folks post here and elsewhere thinking this yet I can't find any reference to it looking back through all the news articles about the game from its first reveal.

    I think this is a problem with Soulslike as a descriptor, it means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. While combat plays a little differently in Sekiro and stealth has more of an emphasis out of combat, it's still fundamentally a third person combat perspective based around evading and parrying attacks. Combat is punishing, and the player is expected to die frequently. Large bosses hide behind fog walls, and the player activates checkpoints which they can teleport between and replenish their healing item, for which they will gain more charges as they progress.

    There are of course differences in the details all of these things, but there's enough overlap to see why some people think of Sekiro as Samurai Souls. Soulslike is somewhat broad as a descriptor.

    Literally everything you posted here is wrong. Congratulations.

    It had Stealth, 3d movement and the gameplay is built around parrying and 99% of the time you attack with the same weapon.

    The only Souls-like mechanics are gathering 'souls' and bonfires.

    They sure are doing their best to make this look like Dark Souls with horses.

    I feel it's going to be more than that, but IMO the trailer wasn't very inspiring.

    >Graphics look dated
    Seeing as this game will likely look as good, if not better than Sekiro, I'm not worried. Sekiro looked just as good in the trailer but looked way better in game. Besides, art style and atmosphere is what From excels at.
    >Supposed to be an MMORPG
    nope, never
    >Sekiro is not a souls game
    I love all From games, but let's be real, there's more overlap in Sekiro and Souls games than not. The differences, while important, are not so great that the similarities can be denied.

    As for the trailer, it looks hype. I've waited 2 years for this game and it looks like it is going to deliver.

    Dark Souls with horses is what most people want. Keep the amazing creature / boss design, stellar level design, amazing art / atmosphere / music, and tons of secrets / lore to discover, but just make more of it and do some new things on top of it (like open world, mounts, etc.).

    Sekiro is an action adventure game with heavy inspiration from souls(obviously) but it does not share the same features of a souls game in many ways. Combat is almost completely different and plays closer to a scripted rhythm game then a souls game. There is almost no weapon or build diversity compared to souls. There is no stamina management.

    So yea, while it has the "bonfire" checkpoint system if you want to call it that, it's inspired by Souls but was pretty clear and cut From Software trying to do something way different then souls.

    Exactly.

    I have no idea why so many people get caught up on the concept of things needing to constantly change. Like... nah. I could play 100 games with souls-like combat that just have different worlds/lore/bosses/weapons/builds. The baseline combat itself at could never change and it would still be interesting.

    DS has massive animation locks and also an input queue system. Whereby if you're in the middle of an animation, you can queue up your next action during that animation... the down side is you CANNT change your mind and that next action is locked in. This means that you should essentially never touch anything during an animation and encourages non-key-spammy play.

    Not 100% to my liking (I'm someone who would prefer to always be spamming a key and have essentially NO animation queue), but you absolutely have to respect it or you will have a bad time and experience that clunky/unresponsive feeling.

    Complaints about it being same-y are weird. It’s like complaining Bethesda Game Studios makes another Elder Scrolls/Fallout.

    No one delivers Souls-likes like the originators themselves, so happy to have another Souls game to play soon!

I mean, you even have monsters from Dark Souls 3 in it, or things that ressemble it. From the video I can't tell shit about the gameplay. It's not like games like CP2077 where you can see the driving is awful just by looking at the car movement.

    People might like it and that's good for them, but I don't understand why people are overhyping this game. It's just Dark Souls with another name.
    Because they're good games that deserve the hype? I mean what does a company have to do. Is constantly releasing quality material not enough?

    I think it looked interesting.... Nothing special tbh. Same same but different. But you don't need to invent the wheel again with every game.
    It looks like a DS skin. Not inherintly bad though. We will see.

    The whole overhyping is giving me HARDCORE CP2077 wibes^^

    But wtf is up with the protagonists hair? They act like broken dry spaghetti

    Problem is that in order to spot the differences, you need to spend some amount of time in the game. At first, sekiro might look like a standard soul game, till you realise combat, itemisation, character progression and so on, meaningful elements of the game, are completely different.

    The hype is real dudes! Sure, the styling of the game lacks of some originality (just looks like DS3), but man!!!!

    The people here wish everything would be a shitty limited mmo for some reason.. a quick google search shows that the new IP is only connected to MMOs via the name of the sites reporting it.

    Anyway, I personally expect just another DS game where I need to trial&error learn every boss until I beat them.. I think I'll just learn another language this time around .

    Lol, what? You play a creature refered to as tarnished that is clearly just another abomination stuck between life and death. The only thing hinting at it being less hopeless is the existence of (green) grass, everything else is more of the dead, empty world of ruins with the occasional monster spinkled in, at least if we go by the currently available material.
