Elden Ring First Boss Almost Took Inspiration from Dark Souls 1

FromSoftware’s Elden Ring may be an original IP, but it could have easily passed as a sequel to Dark Souls. Elden Ring is essentially an open world take on the Dark Souls formula after all, and so it’s no surprise that there are many similarities between the games. It seems that those similarities almost ran even deeper, as there is evidence to suggest FromSoftware toyed with the idea of having a first boss similar to the one players fought in the original Dark Souls game.
