Just got to Phrike for the first time, did the first two waves with little error then fell apart on the third wave. 
 

I respawned in the replicator thing and now I’m back in Phrike’s room but he won’t respawn. I can’t suspend, teleport or do anything. :( 
 

Edit: a known bug which HM haven’t addressed still. FFS.

I’d be genuinely interested to see if those who’ve played both prefer this or Elden ring. I think they are in the same class. 


This. Genuinely one of my favourite games ever. Couple of reasons for that. Selene controls better, she's so damn snappy. It's also much more nex-gen in terms of effects, DualSense support and audio. Returnal's narrative is much more compelling to me. But mostly it's that amazing creepy sci-fi atmosphere it has. I much prefer sci-fi to fantasy and as much as I love Elden Ring I really want From to move on from that.

Here's a walkthrough of the Tower mode. I skipped the boss fight and story sequence myself as I didn't want to be spoiled by it.


Looks fun as fuck.

Must resist... I watched a tiny bit, but I think I want to experience this fresh and figure it out as I go. Looks like there's quite a lot of new systems and even new enemies. Can't wait to get stuck in on Tuesday!

Out of curiosity Vemsie, did you redefine any of the controls for this?
I keep on attempting it, but find I'm a bit too used to the "dark souls" style defaults.

I know many people did, but I always stuck to the default controls. :)

Interesting to know aye! As you're such a fan who will have played it a lot I imagine I was curious to know! 
I too think I prefer the default controls.

Going from Returnal (stuck at Biome 5) to Elden Ring, certainly feels like I've moved over to the easier game.

 

I'll come back to Returnal though.


I think the first half of Returnal is more hostile than any From game, but as Returnal goes on you end up feeling like god which doesn’t really happen with From games.

 

Even when you git gud in those you still have to exercise a certain caution in how you play, whereas in Returnal when you git gud you can make the screen explode while you dance a glorious bolero of death.

Well, now you have a tower in it that you can't survive. :)

of course you can survive. You just have to never die


You will always die eventually. I could see some nice forum action going on, seeing who can get furthest. :)

Do we think this is likely to maintain a procedural / random element, or is it the same rooms every time? 

 

Procedural according to the dev walkthrough.
