Game news Souls like: Games capable of competing with Elden Ring in 2023!

Even if Elden Ring is a sort of culmination of the FromSoftware formula, with its impeccable open world and its straightforward gameplay, the “Souls-like” still have good years ahead of them. In 2023 alone, there are several games in the genre that really deserve your attention. So here is the list.

Wo Long Fallen Dynasty

From next March, the Souls-like genre will welcome a new serious representative: Wo Long Fallen Dynasty. This is Team Ninja’s new project (Nioh, Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin) – so let’s just say that the team knows its subject… Here, we’re heading to China and the Three Kingdoms with gameplay that’s close to Sekiro! Basically, of course, you can attack fast or heavy, launch powers, but above all deflect blows opponents in order to increase the “Spirit Bar”. The higher this will be, the more you will be able to use special techniques, which are very effective against the opponent. Team Ninja also offers more open levels than in the past and a small “infiltration” aspect. To find out more, you can read our preview.

  • Release date : March 3, 2023
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series (via Game Pass)

Flintlock The Siege of Dawn

In a completely different visual universe (where the world of the living is confronted with that of the dead), here is Flintlock The Siege of Dawn. Here again, we are faced with a studio that knows what it is talking about, since it is A44 Games, to whom we owe the great Souls-like Ashen! For now: this new project still seems more ambitious. On the Steam page, we speak in particular of “open world” where it will be necessary to use gameplay “which combines axe, firearms, magic”. In the first gameplay video, we can see a fairly agile heroine, who can jump and rely on the help of a small magical creature – “Enki” – in battles | exploration phases. All in all, whether with its universe, inspired by Egypt, its fights, we could hold a very good surprise.

Lies of P

If you follow video game news and are interested in Souls-like, you must have heard of Lies of P, the surprise action-RPG (developed in South Korea) that puts everyone a little more excited. accord to each of his presentations. This for two reasons! On the one hand, the project very quickly brings to mind Bloodborne, which occupies a very special place in the hearts of players, and on the other, it is inspired by an account that would have been difficult to imagine in a demanding action game, Pinocchio. Yes, in this game, it will sometimes be a question of telling the truth or lying to progress in the scenario. But of course, the bulk of the experience remains the gameplay, which promises to be very successful with a system of whips and special techniques, and the universe, a kind of modern dark fantasy.

Black Myth Wukong

Another Souls-like which looks solid and which is helped by the choice of its setting: Black Myth Wukong. The action-RPG, developed by Game Science, is an adaptation of the Chinese novel Journey to the West, where a Buddhist monk receives help from a immortal monkey – during an expedition. Obviously, it is this animal that the player embodies… And it is quite a beast. As you can imagine, in addition to its trusty staff, the animal can call on a whole host of magical powers: transform into an insect to move faster; split in a fight; but also create a temporary protective barrier; transform into a body-built creature; freeze an opponent in place. All served by high-flying visuals. In short, it will be heavy.

  • Release date : 2023-2024
  • Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series

The Lords of the Fallen

After a first part (2014) which did not convince the crowds, the Souls-like Lords of the Fallen is back with a kind of reboot which promises to be darker, more controlled, also more ambitious! Yes, on the project’s Steam page, there is talk of an interconnected world measuring “five times” the size of the original game. In there, in the skin of a Black Crusader, it will be necessary kill lots of demons and especially to prevent the resurrection of the evil god Adyr, yet dead in the past… In short, it will not be a piece of cake. On your side, you will be able to choose one of the nine classes, master the fights described as “tactical” and with “depth”, without forgetting “the hundreds of unique, brutal weapons”. Of course, there is also magic and multiplayer on the program. We look forward to hearing more.

Another Crab’s Treasure

Once is not customary with the Souls-like genre, we end on a lighter note: do you know Another Crab’s Treasure, a demanding action game where you play as… a hermit crab? A crazy idea by the developers of Going Under, a rogue-lite that had a lot of qualities for it. Here, we leave the business environment to leave “under the ocean”: “Slip into the skin of Kril (…) and use as a shell the garbage that lines the seabed” can we read on Steam. It will therefore be necessary to use odds and ends to progress, and your hero will even be able to learn new attacks. Importantly, the developers make a point of making the experience affordable for new Souls-like fans. So, you like it ?
