From Software president and director Hidetaka Miyazaki in an interview with IGN discussed the upcoming action RPG Elden Ring. He revealed the gameplay is similar to Dark Souls and is more of a "natural evolution."

"Elden Ring is a third-person action RPG with a fantasy setting," said Miyazaki. "The gameplay is not so far from Dark Souls. That doesn’t mean that the gameplay will be identical, but you could say that Elden Ring belongs to the same genre."

"With a larger world, new systems and action mechanics inevitably become necessary," Miyazaki added. "In that sense, I think that Elden Ring is a more natural evolution of Dark Souls."

Here is an overview of the game:
