Dark Souls tabletop RPG is full of problems, according to early players

Dark Souls: Role Playing Game, a new tabletop RPG designed and published by Steamforged Games, has not even launched in the US yet and it has been flooded with criticism. The Collector’s Edition Rules were released late last month in Europe and the UK, and players have found a ton of bugs – everything from basic typos to bigger problems, break the game much more. These issues were first reported by Dicebreaker.

Players on Reddit are pointing out all sorts of major inconsistencies with the rule set, which is based on the open source version of Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition. For example, some classes like Knights don’t have enough power in level one to wear their own initial armor, while the Caster’s starting stat won’t allow it to use one of the recommended weapons for them. Meanwhile, no one is even entirely sure how death is supposed to work.

In a statement to Polygon, developers Steamforged said that they don’t feel these issues will affect the game’s playability, but that they are taking feedback “seriously:”

At Steamforged, our main goal has always been to create immersive desktop experiences that capture the hearts and imaginations of our fans, immersing them in living worlds they might otherwise get lost in. way over and over again. While we feel we have achieved it with Dark Souls: Role Playing Game In the face of overwhelmingly positive reviews, we acknowledge the concerns some have raised and take all feedback seriously. While these concerns do not affect the game’s playability, we are always working to strengthen our process to ensure our loyal fans continue to enjoy the games we enjoy. I release.

While some of these copies have already gone to those who pre-ordered the collector’s edition in Europe, the rule book won’t be released in the US until May 16, which means causing players to ask some questions about what could be changed before that.

This isn’t Steamforged games’ first attempt at bringing a popular video game title to a table audience. The developer has also created successful board games based on Monster Hunter: World, Horizon Zero Dawnand Resident Evil 2. Steamforged is also currently developing a Runescape game, due out later this year.
