The Best Upcoming Soulslike Titles That’ll Keep Us Company After Elden Ring Ends

Even with Elden Ring coming to an end, there's plenty of other games for fans to enjoy.

Story Highlights

  • Even with Elden Ring coming to an end, there are many more Soulslikes currently in the works.
  • The genre is seeing more and more additions each year.
  • Several Soulslike titles were recently announced at the Summer Games Show. 

With FromSoftware confirming that Shadow of the Erdtree will be Elden Ring’s one and only expansion, it’s clear that the game will be coming to an end soon. It’s unclear what the company’s next title will be, and it may step away from Soulslikes for a bit to work on a different genre. FromSoftware has a history of working on several different titles before it became the company that invented the Soulslike genre.

However, fans shouldn’t worry. Because many other developers are picking up right where FromSoftware might leave things off. There are tons of Soulslikes games in the work right now, with a few of them coming out over the next few months. Even in 2023, we got to see plenty of Soulslike titles enter the scene like Lies of P. So there’s no denying this genre is here to stay. Here are some of the best upcoming games to look out for.

Enotria: The Last Song

Coming out on 19 September, Enotria: The Last Song takes the intense combat of the Souls games and puts it in the golden hills of Italy. The developers have mentioned that they loved the gameplay of the Soulslike genre but wanted to add their own spin to it by stepping away from the typically bleak atmosphere and environments seen in these games.

To do this, they’ve taken a ton of inspiration from Italian folklore, giving Enotria its own blend of visual identity. Another cool element about this game is its mask system, which is a collection of pre-built loadouts that players can swap between. This essentially helps you change your entire playstyle without having to respec like you usually have to do in Souls games. This is similar to the concept seen in Mortal Shell.

There’s a playable demo of this game currently available on Steam, for those who want to try it. It’s supposed to be as long as 8 hours, so it should give players a pretty good idea of what they can expect from the final release. For anyone looking to dive their teeth into another Soulslike, albeit one that puts a more bright and cheerful spin to the atmosphere, this game seems like a great option.

Black Myth: Wukong

This title is inspired by the ancient story of the monkey king, Sun Wukong, and takes players into the world of Chinese mythology. Players will have to fight their way through mystical foes from 16th-century literature. The game boasts some incredible visuals, thanks largely to the fact that it was developed in Unreal Engine 5.

But it’s not just looks because the game seemingly has quite an interesting combat system too. While the basics feel quite reminiscent of the Souls series, Black Myth: Wukong has managed to keep things feeling fresh with unique spells and other gameplay additions. With it coming out on 20 August, its release isn’t too far away. It might be the perfect give to dive into once you’re all done with Shadow of the Erdtree

Recently unveiled at Xbox Games Showcase 2024, WUCHANG is basically the Sekiro sequel that fans never got. Set in the late Ming Dynasty, the game features Soulslike combat as players travel a cursed land filled with dangerous enemies. The announcement trailer provides a good look at the setting and the main character, while also showcasing some intense gameplay.

While it doesn’t have a release date just yet, the game is expected to come out sometime in 2025. It’s also going to be a day-one launch for anyone who’s got the Xbox Game Pass, which is a good bonus. While not much has been revealed about the actual combat, it’s reportedly going to feature multiple weapon categories and the use of Ornithropy magic.  

This title will feel right at home for players who love the more sinister tone that FromSoftware’s Souls titles tend to have. Its spooky take on Chinese folklore and mythology should serve as an excellent starting point for enemy designs and bosses. Plus, with it focusing on providing players the option to choose from several weapon types, the combat will likely be quite varied and interesting
