Elden Ring finally has a release date: January 21, 2022. At the launch of Summer Games Fest on Thursday, Dark Souls producer FromSoftware unveiled the first gameplay trailer for its next game – a collaboration between game director Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones author George RR Martin – Comes on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Steam for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Owners of consoles will not have to buy Elden Ring twice, as the game will support free upgrades for these which goes from PS4 to PS5 and “Smart Delivery” if you switch from Xbox One to Series S / X. More details about Elden Ring will of course be revealed in the rest of 2021.
C Elden Ring,, FromSoftware promises open gameplay and a world whose destiny you must choose. You can choose to fight right against your opponents in battle or use Elden Ring’s stealth and combat systems to get to the top. To fit, Elden Ring has role-playing aspects that allow players to develop these types of different game styles. You can choose from a variety of weapons, magical abilities and skills that can be gained around the world. As for the battles themselves, you will naturally face all sorts of monstrous animals and strangely shaped creatures, including fire-breathing dragons.
During your journey you will meet a number of characters who have their own motives to help or hinder you. And as you complete your adventures, unlock the secrets and myths of the earth, you will be able to decide what will happen to this fantastic world conceived by Miyazaki and Martin. The world of Elden Ring also has a natural progression of time and time during the day, which means that it will have a 24-hour cycle day and night, dotted with meteorological phenomena such as rain, storms and snow. The landscape of the Elden Ring is dotted with “grassy plains suffocating swamps, lush forests, spiraling mountains and breathtaking castles”.
You can explore the Elden Ring yourself or you can choose to do so as a team of up to four players in an online cooperative multiplayer. It will probably work in a similar way to other FromSoftware titles, but we can’t say for sure until we have more details on this front.
“With Elden Ring, we applied all our dark fantasies and action RPG expertise cultivated through the Dark Souls series to create a bold classic evolution of the genre,” Miyazaki said in a prepared statement. “We have created a rich world with a stunning sense of scale, based on legends written about the game by George R. R. Martin. The Elden Ring is a world full of mystery and danger, ready to be explored and discovered; a drama in which different characters parade with their own mystique and hidden motives. We sincerely hope you enjoy trying it for yourself. “
