From Software announced that it was developing a new action RPG called Elden Ring back in 2019. Created in collaboration with Game of Thrones novelist George R. R. Martin, the heavily hyped but mysterious title finally received an official gameplay trailer today that includes knights, dragons, and a dark, Gothic atmosphere—basically, everything that a Dark Souls fan might have been hoping for. Comprising an epic journey in a vast landscape with natural weather and time-of-day progression, Elden Ring will be released for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on January 21, 2022.
Traverse on foot or horseback, alone or online with friends across grassy plains, suffocating swamps and lush forests. Ascend spiraling mountains, enter breathtaking castles, and witness other sites of grandeur on a scale never seen before in a FromSoftware title. ELDEN RING’s role-playing and customization options allow players to define their own unique playstyle. Experimentation is encouraged with a wide variety of weapons, magical abilities and skills found throughout the world; enticing players to follow previously unexplored progression paths.
