The Japanese creative is inspired by games from completely different genres to the ones he has been working on in recent years.
As always happens in this industry, a successful video game does not only arise from having an original idea or art kit may it work wonders, although all that helps, of course. you also have to play a lot to see what other creatives have done and investigate the currents of today to know as much the tastes of the players, such as the way they play and interact both with the game and among themselves. It is because of that the creator of Dark Souls and Elden Ringdespite all his experience within the industry, assures that he is going to other multiplayer games to get inspired for your next project.
Hidetaka Miyazaki is a master in terms of video game design, his works have created a subgenre within the RPG action games that we all know as soulslike, and that includes both sections and combat or character progresslike the online gaming system itself, with the famous invasions by other players to play cooperatively or competitively. It seems that the next project of the japanese creative could be something different to this, so you are already looking for ideas among today’s games.
Miyazaki’s next project will also be multiplayer
“I’m not really sure if this is the latest trend, but the multiplayer elements that, in terms of technology and game designs, we keep updating them“, assured Miyazaki to IGN in a talk after the last edition of the DICE awards. Specifically, one of the multiplayer games that have caught the attention of the creator of Dark Souls and Elden Ring recently has been Escape from Tarkov. “Others in the industry continue to update network multiplayer functionality and game design to change the way players engage in the game and how players are used as one of the resources for the game. That’s why I’m paying attention to these elements.”
Escape from Tarkov is a popular multiplayer FPS that has been in Early Access since 2017 that combines the classic shooter gameplay, with survival and MMO elements. To this day it is still very popular on platforms like Twitch, although it has had significant problems with cheaters.
We know that FromSoftware’s next game will be Armored Core 6, although there are still hardly any details on the title and its playable proposal, although it is hard to believe that Miyazaki and his team will not return to the Middle Lands soon after the unprecedented success of Elden Ringwhich already has more than 20 million units sold.
