There will be a morality system.
There will be a black rider in a chariot who acts as an executioner if you commit evil deeds. “if you’re unlucky enough, you’ll be able to meet them.”
Snow and blizzard like environments could be included in the world.
There likely won't be a tutorial, but instead limited abilities until players complete an instance that will feel like the Dark Souls game we all know and love.
Covenants will be returning, but they will be adapted to be easier to understand.
Vehicles could be included. One example was the chariot of the black rider.
A journey on a boat or ship could be included, but you likely won't be able to control it yourself.
The ocean or the sea will have an important aspect at one point in the game. In Edge's feature, Shibuya describes the section has having "strong winds from the ocean and the strong waves as well."
The concept of the sea or ocean is "an area where we’re trying to express loneliness."

Apparently this is all expected to be in the game.
I want to see how all this works out.
