Elden Ring Gameplay Development Explained by Hidetaka Miyazaki

The latest issue of Famitsu featured extensive coverage of Elden Ring to mark the game ‘s global launch. It also includes a lengthy six page interview with Hidetaka Miyazaki. The director talked about some of the decisions made in the gameplay systems during the game’s development, such as item crafting and free exploration. [Thanks, Ryokutya!]

Here are some of the highlights from Famitsu‘s Elden Ring interview with Hidetaka Miyazaki:

  • “The production went in parallel with Sekiroso there was not a lot of direct feedback from SekiroGeneral Chat Chat Lounge However, they did indeed influence each other. “
  • “To move into new fields, you can do things like clearing dungeons or defeating large bosses. But those are not the wholety of the rules. “
  • “There are various requirements. There are multiple methods that look like warps. Some of the regions will have you simply walk on the ground. “
  • “We’re emphasizing the degree of freedom in playthroughs. You can have a slight free order on which regions to visit. “
  • “We’re refraining a lot from making big boss destructions into unavoidable checkpoints in game progression.”
  • “There are no features where the horse would not listen to the rider’s instructions.”
  • “If a playthrough is too short in a game with the open world, there is a tendency for people to get stressed. They would think ‘I ran out of items so let’s head back at once,’ and that would make it more uncomfortable than usual. We wanted to reduce that by implementing the Item Crafting System. “
  • “Being able to use things other than blessing the holy grail is intended to raise the abilities for endless battles so that a playthrough won’t become too short.”
  • “If you are hesitating in choosing your origin, you can just choose based on the background and it looks like you. We designed it so that picking specific origins wouldn’t lead to restrictions later on. “
  • “The Wretch is the only one that is completely different. (laughs) “
  • “The Guidance of Blessing is the minimum level of guidance. There are also discoveries and dramas if you stray away from it. “
  • “I want you to enjoy [the game] by not fearing death and including it in trials and errors. “
  • “I’m not good at mentioning gameplay hours, but this one definitely has a larger volume than the Dark Souls series. “
