Gaming News After Elden Ring comes 6 Souls-like 2022 and beyond
If you’ve managed to complete Elden Ring, the now famous spiritual sequel to Dark Souls, in the open world, you’re probably already asking yourself a question: what will my next challenge be? Just for you, we’ve scoured the web to find the best Souls-like about to land.
In an artistic approach more akin to Lies of P, here is Steelrising, a new project by French studio Spiders (Greedfall, The Technomancer). After the open-world action-adventure game, Team Souls-like turns to: on the way to an uchronic Paris, while the Revolution of 1789 was in full swing. A very real moment in history, but accompanied by a kind of automaton. The real heroine of the adventure – Aegis – is one sent by the very famous Queen Marie Antoinette to help the revolutionaries. But King Louis XVI. also had its own army. It will therefore be necessary to fight all these beautiful people in the midst of confrontations announced as “demanding” and “particularly nervous”. An original title that seems very captivating.

SALT AND SACRIFICE
After the very good Salt and Sanctuary, the ska studio is back with the direct sequel called Salt and Sacrifice. In this 2D Souls-like, you evolve into one Kingdom was terrified after the invasion of mages. As a proven inquisitor, your mission will therefore be to confront this danger while a deadly secret threatens to be uncovered. So the quest is pretty easy to understand: kill all mages. To do this, you have eight classes at your disposal (assassin, paladin, warrior, duelist, cleric, fighter, ranger, and sage) for a game to explore alone or in co-op. The icing on the cake, an entire online dimension, with multi-online, PvP, PvE elements and the ability to summon multiple allies.
Dark Faith LEAVE
Since Souls-like are very popular, inevitably many lesser-known developers want to create their own stunt. This is especially true of Bleak Faith Forsaken, an action RPG developed by Archangel Studios. The team immediately terminates a huge open world to explore, where you have to “run, climb, jump, go up”. In fact, on the trailers we can see a very vast universe where giant creatures like Shadow of the Colossus are lounging. “Fighting is dangerous and pushes you to your limits. Position, timing and resource management are all things you need to keep an eye on at all times,” the studio also writes. In short, as always, we are just waiting to be surprised.
Similar to Bleak Faith Forsaken, here comes Thymesia. In this action role-playing game – you start by knowing the song – the player embodies Corvus, a raven-headed human who must uncover the mysteries of a disease-ridden world. One of the features that looks very nice: the possibility of steal the enemy’s powers to then reuse them against them. “The power of the disease is the only way to get you out alive from the desolate, plague-ridden realm,” the official website states. It also appears to activate a “super form” based on the crow’s powers. All of course, with all the customization options of the genre to define your own style of play.In short, it seems enjoyable.
LIES OF P
This one, we didn’t see it coming. Lies of P has really established itself overnight one of the most promising Souls-like Come. If only for its visuals and its artistic direction, very solid that would make one believe in a cross between Bloodborne and Bioshock, and above all for its very original concept: the player embodies the famous Pinocchio, who has to lie during the dialogue phases in order to arrive its purposes. The first – and for now only – gameplay trailer doesn’t really show this mechanic, but the gameplay, which thus fully corresponds to the Souls-like genre: reading model enemies well will be of paramount importance. In any case, we are really looking forward to more.
BLACK MYTH WUKONG
Another game that promises to be excellent and that we didn’t see coming, Black Myth Wukong, an action RPG that allows us to take control of the monkey king from the well-known fable. Enough to give life to a very ambitious title that mixes both myth and martial arts in a truly exotic setting. Looks like a game from From Software personally in Sekiro style. With a gameplay video of 13 minutes of gameplay as the first images, the title didn’t take long to excite fans of the genre. In addition, the project recently switched to Unreal Engine 5, the latest engine from Epic Games. In short, the Game Science app looks very eye-catching and we can’t wait to see more.
