Director and FromSoftware's Hidetaka Miyazaki's next game is a fantasy RPG created in collaboration with Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. Originally announced back at E3 2019 we now have the first look at gameplay in a stunning new trailer that debuted as a part of Summer Game Fest.
Check it out.
Dive into a thrilling adventure and decide the fate of a vast world filled with intrigue and power. Fight against formidable enemies with FromSoftware’s signature melee combat and discover a wide range of inventive strategies made possible by the open-ended Action-RPG gameplay of ELDEN RING.
A new world filled with fantastic tales and lore has been woven by Hidetaka Miyazaki – creator of the influential and critically acclaimed DARK SOULS video game series; and George R.R. Martin – author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire.
Players will embark on a journey across a meticulously handcrafted world dripping in blood and deception brought upon by a variety of characters with their own unique motivations for helping or hindering the player’s progress, adversaries with profound backgrounds, and fearsome creatures. Throughout their adventures, players will choose the fate of this cursed land by unravelling its secrets and myths.
Elden Ring features a vast open-world, one that will feature weather and time-of-day progression. And one that you can traverse on horseback and ride up to some of the large hulking beasts sporting impressive scale and detail. It's high-fantasy by the way of Dark Souls, with mountains, castles, swamps, and strange gothic and ethereal creatures and objects.
“With Elden Ring, we have applied all our dark fantasy and action-RPG expertise cultivated throughout the Dark Souls series, in order to create a bold, classical evolution of the genre,” commented Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director at FromSoftware, “We've crafted a rich world with a staggering sense of scale, based off of legends written for the game by George R. R. Martin. Elden Ring is a world full of mystery and peril, ready to be explored and discovered; a drama in which various characters flaunt their own mystique and ulterior motives. We sincerely hope you enjoy experiencing it for yourself.”
And as per the headline we've also got a release date -- with Elden Ring set to launch January 21, 2022 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
