I love Fromsoft, and will obviously play this. But this looks like DS3, 5 years later. Look forward to finding out more!
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.

It does look a lot like Dark Souls 3, doesn't it? I would have preferred a more primitive air to the locations: it feels like after Bloodborne, those gothic architectural designs need to be reused to make the most out of the money spent on them.

On the other hand, size of the world will probably make sameish art direction more palatable. It looks like mobility (something borrowed from Sekiro) will be something to shake things up a bit. Plus doesn't it look like you can jump? The feline swordsman with red flames doing a sweep looks like it needs to be jumped to be avoided.

It seems that continued support for PS4/XBone is costing the game visually. Funny that even after this is released, the best looking FromSoft game will still be made by Bluepoint.
