I thought there was a thread about this before as well.
Anyways, super excited for this too. Played it at PAX Prime and while I took much of it with a grain of salt since it was in active development (Things like AI stopping responses mid-animations) the controls were basically identical to Souls. So much so that I think most - if not all - actions I took were guesses from Souls and were correct. More importantly the movements had a good weight to them and didn't veer too far into an arcadey or slower feel (Both relative to Souls).
Died in the demo to a mob charging me while I was chugging a health pot/estus flask, instant flashback.
