In a recent interview with Famitsu, Hidetaka Miyazaki spoke extensively about Elden Ring. There, the director of the game discussed, among other things, the level of difficulty of the latest Soulslike title Elden Ring.
Elden Ring will have an easier difficulty level
According to Miyazaki, the level of difficulty was not deliberately lowered. However, this time you have more options available to master difficult passages.
Elden Ring is a game that is very demanding but can be mastered. The level of difficulty should be roughly on the level of Dark Souls 3 and cannot be adjusted as is typical of the genre.
Previously the free character development in the game was also reported, which allows you to combine a wide variety of weapons and skills. You are also allowed to make use of magic and incantations. In addition, you can get up to three other players into the team to face the fight together.
The Soulslike games have always been characterized by an exceptionally high level of difficulty. One or the other player may now fear that the title will be much easier to play. After all, FromSoftware could reach a broader audience through this.
However, the statements made above do not sound like an undemanding gaming experience. The comparison with the third part of the Dark Souls series indicates that you will be challenged a lot this time too.
You will find out how difficult the action role-playing game will ultimately be on January 21, 2022. On this day, Elden Ring comes out for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
