Another action RPG from FROM Software. From AVS:

Announced at TGS 10, this title is said to be for fans of Demon's Souls. In fact, it is made by the same DS team. I'll add more info as it is known (the live stream blacked out the teaser trailer). The game will be published by Namco for multiple platforms.

I'm hoping it's a sequel to DS in spirit. I'll buy it day one.

Appears to be multi-platform:

http://www.psu.com/Demons-Souls-developer-reveals-Project-Dark,-heading-to-PS3-and-Xbox-360--a009771-p0.php

Quote :
The title, Project Dark, is not a sequel to Demon’s Souls, but it's for fans of the game.

At the keynote, the game appeared to be a PlayStation 3 exclusive like Demon’s Souls, but that does not appear to be the case outside of Japan. The English version of Project Dark’s website lists Xbox 360 as a platform with the PS3, along with logos at the bottom of the page. Interestingly enough, the Japanese site does not include the Xbox 360 logo and branding, likely because there is not a huge Microsoft market in Japan.

This sucks. Now HK will get to play it Sad

Looks like it really is the successor of DS. So I guess in DS, the hero ended up killing the maiden in black.

Low quality, but they blacklisted the video for some reason. Here it is.

Why do you say he kills the MiB?

The brief gameplay resembles DS, but also keep in mind at no time in DS was there a party of people with the protagonist like there was in that video.

I hope the party of people = a more accessible co-op.

There's a preview on the game in this week's Famitsu. The official title is now Dark Souls. Some info from the preview:

- This is the official title of what was previously Project Dark

- This time they want to increase the amount of field exploration in the game.
- All fields are seamless, so whatever you can see, you can reach and explore. If you see a fortress or castle walls in the distance, you can eventually get there.
- There will be no map display in the game, just a position display marker.

- They aim to make the game just as challenging than Demon's Souls, but also just as rewarding when you succeed. The sense of achievement is important.

- The gameplay will be similar to Demon's Souls in concept, where it's about trial and error and learning from your mistakes to play better.

- The game does not share the same world and story as Demon's Souls.
- The game will not use the same format as Demon's Souls in terms of having 5 worlds connected via a hub.

- Instead all maps in the game will be linked seamlessly in a connected world. The pace of the game will feel more about exploration and discovering locations, which you can then go inside into a dungeon or whatever and explore the interior further.
- There will be more complex level designs in the game using more vertical design in areas and such.

- The world setting is based on medieval dark fantasy, and will contain themes like "high fantasy of kings and knights", "death and the depths of the earth", and "the flames of chaos".

Edit: More details added.

- The character creation process will not be class based.
- The play style of the player character will have much more freedom this time.
- There will be many more spells and items, and the animation and uniqueness of weapons will also be increased.

- The online elements are very similar to Demon's Souls. There is cooperative and PvP.
- You can still leave messages, and see players who died at various places.
- There will be no Soul Tendency this time because they don't want to have to use dedicated servers to handle that **** again.
- Instead this time there will be more features allowing players to engage in "mutual role playing" which they say are still under wraps. They'll reveal more when it's time.

If this means there is still going to be the same style of play where the game can basically wipe out hours of your time, I will pass, thanks. Robe & Wizard Hat

Recommended move to Multiplatorm area?

AND!!! Tyrant, it looks like you were wrong. This is published by Namco Bandai...not Atlus. Sad

Guess so! Not sure when that happened, guess FS left Atlus, who has it's own new DS project.

If they all play similar, but are different enough, were all gonna win!

This was from the EU trailer from some London conference going on right now. Demons Souls was also distributed in the EU by Namco Bandai Games. Maybe they took over all publishing rights for this one? Either that or Atlus still has JP/USA markets covered.

Confirmed, they ditched Atlus and went with Namco Bandai Games for world wide publishing this time.

Also, eye candy:

Sounds like a combination of open world, and linear sub levels. Probably like old games where you're free to travel to "dungeons" which are linear areas with specific objects, world styles, and bosses.

that's definitley interesting. it's the leveling system that pissed me off too, though. i get to level 180 and it seems like the enemies go up to level 220.

Not if you spend more time in each playthrough. I did that. Toad and BP went ahead, and I was still farming playthrough one. I got to be pretty badass, and took the sting out of NG+. I could still co-op with each of them though.
