VaatiVidya is one of the world's foremost Souls experts, so when he talks about Dark Souls 3? I'd recommend you listen. This guy knows his stuff.
In this video Vaati takes the time to talk about some of the real nitty gritty about Dark Souls 3. This one's for the folks that thought Bloodborne was too stripped back.
I am not one of those people. I absolutely loved Bloodborne for what it was, but I am looking forward to Dark Souls 3 and a return to builds and weapons that really allow for different play styles. I will, as always, be the guy hiding behind a massive shield for 50+ hours.
I'm very interested to see how the 'weapon arts' mechanic plays out in the game. It's sort of a modifier that allows for more powerful, deft attacks unique to each weapon. Sort of like a 'special moves' button that consumes from a mana bar. I'm guessing that management of that will play a large part in the game, particularly when it comes to boss battles. That excites me.
Dark Souls 3 looks far more fluid and fast paced. This is obviously a by-product of Bloodborne's development. I was kinda hoping that Dark Souls would remain a little more slow-paced but I'm open minded about these things.
In From Software we trust.
