Speaking of enemy designs, From Software outdid themselves in Elden Ring, with the biggest enemy variety ever seen in a game from the studio. The enemy lineup is massive, featuring all sorts of creatures ranging from your regular fully-armored knights to undead skeletons, giant trolls, demi-humans, beastmen, dragons, armored birds, walking spider-like hands and other monstrosities that feel like they have come straight from Bloodborne. The many bosses are obviously the stars of the show in Elden Ring, and they come with unique designs and movesets that will make some of them fan favorites for years to come.
