And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

Oh damn, hello.

Ten seconds and this thing looks so nice, even in crummy stream quality.

Just watched the trailer.

This game has no right to look so fucking good.

Wtf.
I think it’s referred to as something called the ‘next generation of video games’.

...not been shown to us much, so no wonder it’s surprising 😋

Im so hyped to play this. I completely missed it first time around and got sucked into the Soulsborne games starting with Blood Borne. The atmosphere on display looks freaking immaculate.

Someone explain fractured mode to me, like in a legit way.
It‘s the entire game world, mirrored. They haven‘t given any more info out yet, but the wording they have used suggests it’ll be harder, so maybe with alterations to it.

I’m hoping for different item locations, archstone locations etc.

I'm getting goose bumps... this and flashbacks from when I played back then (2009)... HOLY CRAP I'M EXCITED...
Going to be honest didn't think of buying it day one, but first trailer got my body tickling, second one got me shaking from excitement...
