When it comes to games that fall into a souls-like genre, Dark Souls is the progenitor of the series that became popular due to its brutal combat and beautiful lore that the series portrays well. Like earlier NES games that were difficult but fun to play, Dark Souls took a page from those games and managed to make its world more compelling and immersive. The first three Dark Souls games refined the RPG mechanics, interesting and challenging bosses with a great backstory, refined combat system and merged it with an amazing story and are regarded as the best souls-like games along with Demon Souls and Bloodborne.
Dark Souls 3 was released four years ago and met with positive reviews and fans are wondering if the fourth Dark Souls game will release or not? Read on more to know about the release date of Dark Souls 4 and what will it offer in terms of story gameplay and everything.
Is there a possibility of Dark Souls 4?
It’s sad to say that the creators of the series don’t have any plans for the Dark Souls 4 at the moment as FromSoftware is currently busy polishing a similar souls-like game called Elden Ring. It shares the same spirit as Dark Souls but vastly improves upon the level design and aesthetics similar to Sekiro and Demon Souls. However, many are believing that Elden Ring is Dark Souls 4. Well, Hidetaka Miyazaki has confirmed that it’s not and is a different game altogether. Fans can be rest assured that the series is not canceled and the development of Dark Souls 4 will start in the future, however, it is uncertain how much time will it take. For the time being, souls fans can enjoy Elden Ring when it releases next year and will keep you immersed.
The gameplay of Dark Souls 4?
There is no known information on what new changes or gameplay features will be implemented in Dark Souls 4, but one thing we can say for certain is that it’ll retain its core gameplay elements from previous games. As the series has evolved, we might get to see a new gameplay mechanic added in the next game.
Is the game coming to 2022?
Until Elden Ring’s production is complete, we are certain that Dark Souls 4 will not arrive in 2021 as devs have to make final changes to their upcoming souls-like game. If we follow the timeframe of the release date of the Dark Souls game, which is a two-year gap, we might see Dark Souls 4 in late 2022 or 2023 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Playstation 4 and 5. We’ll keep you update more about the game’s release date as soon as it’s officially announced.
