“In terms of the landmass itself, it’s far more similar to the works of Miyazaki’s idol Ueda than anything else , so it’s not just about having a super large mass of open field, but also degrees of verticality as well as natural transitions between the more open sections and the less open sections like castles and ruins and whatnot” … “The landscapes of Scotland served as an inspiration for Elden Ring’s landscapes. That being said you’ll also be sure to see plenty of cool fantasy locales.”
“Perhaps you’ve been traveling, see something cool and start traveling inside some ruins or a cave,”…”You start making your way back out and hey, things look a lot darker outside than they did when I came in and the enemies that were here when I left aren’t here any more…but some other things are.”…”Perhaps there are ways to use this situation to my advantage, but perhaps I don’t want to risk it.”
