5 “soulslike” games that will arrive before Elden Ring

We recommend five recent or upcoming soulslike video games to ease the wait for From Software's new and desired game.

Despite the alleged leak of the Elden Ring off-screen trailer , the debut of the new game from From Software , in collaboration with Game of Thrones author George RR Martin, is becoming more to be expected than what millions of fans of the Japanese studio wish. Seen for the first time at E3 2019, it will soon be two years since its announcement, and those who like the demanding experiences of Hidetaka Miyazaki and company are eager to know more about what, surely, is one of the most anticipated games.of the present time, but the moment is not in sight when we can know more. Meanwhile, and to shorten that wait, we will be able to enjoy during all the months that remain for their arrival a considerable number of games of a similar cut, among which we have selected these five for you to keep on the radar.


Lords of the Fallen 2


The first installment had a remarkable reception, since although the game of the Germans of Deck 13 did not reach the level that the Japanese reach by habit, it was a very solvent action and role game, with a good combat system and the usual requirement. They will not spare expenses for this sequel, since the publisher, CI Games , announced just a couple of months ago that they are willing to invest what is necessary in the game to make it a true triple A, being its creation to Hexworks charge, a recently founded studio that will make its debut with the game at hand, and which curiously has one of its headquarters in Barcelona. In this way, the development process has been straightened out, since its launch was scheduled no less than in 2017, having even abandoned its initial director. Thus, for the moment the only thing they have specified is that it will have an even darker setting than its predecessor, which is saying a lot. We will see it, supposedly, throughout this year, on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and PC.

Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King

This title that can already be enjoyed through Steam does not hide its obvious inspiration, and that is that from the combat system, with a strong and slow attack, and a faster but weaker one, through the limited use of healing objects, It is obvious that he is clearly influenced by the work of From Software. It is in its artistic section where it shines with its own light, since although technically it cannot be considered a marvel, it does have a very personal and distinguishable visual aspect. Another of its peculiarities is that it has an unusual platform element in this subgenre, which are the soulslike, with a verticality in the scenarios that not only provides playable variety, but also a certain touch of strategy to the combats, since we can use the different levels of environments to our benefit,

Dolmen

Like Hellpoint , Dolmen will abandon medieval fantasy and take the souls formula to a space sci-fi universe with a terrifying environment, and according to its creators, a “Lovecraftian” story. Set on the planet Revion Prime, where a massacre of great proportions took place, this title proposes us not only to fight and explore, but also to craft our own team from the parts of the different defeated enemies, a bit in the style of another game of the same cut as is The Surgeand its sequel, in addition to making use of an arsenal of elemental attacks to which each creature will react differently, which will bring more variety to enemy encounters. Dolmen managed to finance itself last year on Kickstarter, achieving more than $ 20,000 over a goal of 15,000, which will allow them to take it to consoles (PS4 and Xbox One, without mention for the moment of PS5 and Xbox Series) and translate it into several languages , among which is Castilian, although on its Steam page it does not specify it like that for the moment. Its launch is scheduled for later this year.

Moonray

If before we highlighted the aspect of Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King , it is possible to do the same with Moonray, another video game that will take us to fight in space and that presents a combat more oriented to hack & slash, and that invites us to be more offensive than other titles on the list. With a technical section that will make the most of not only each PC, but also the new consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series, Moonray puts us in the shoes of a golem created by a god with the aim of ending a mysterious cult through from a story by the comic writer Grim Wilkins, and with a soundtrack by the electronic musician, the Lithuanian Ten Walls. Whoever is looking for the most visceral action has to undoubtedly opt for this game, which will also be available soon as it begins its Early Access phase in just a few weeks, specifically on March 31.

Bleak Faith: Forsaken

We end with the most exotic proposal, and that is Bleak Faith: ForsakenIt is in charge of only two people, having also seen its origin through Kickstarter, although it achieved the financing objective for very little, getting just over $ 31,000 of the 30,000 established as a goal. Just a few weeks ago they offered an update of its development, ensuring that, while its launch on PC is close without specifying a date, its arrival on consoles will still be a little more demanding due to lack of resources, mainly speaking of staff for it. Luckily, they also offered an extensive 14-minute gameplay in which some almost unprecedented mechanics in this subgenre are shown, such as stealth, as well as boss fights, while ensuring that we can also enjoy survival horror elements.
