Tutorials are not what you'd expect to see in a game by FromSoftware, which is known for extremely hard games. But in an interview for EuroGamer, Hidetaka Miyazaki acknowledged that:
These things generally aren't our forte, but we do need some support, and Activision is providing that. One reason we're working with Activision is they hold our creative vision in the highest regard. From has editorial and directive control over the game and the game's contents; after you press the start button, it's all up to the From team.
Activision also serves as the game's publisher in the west, which is another change for the famed Japanese developer. Previously its games were distributed by Bandai Namco.
