Bandai Namco has shared new screenshots for Elden Ring. More information about the action RPG is expected to be revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2021. One of the new screenshots features a helmeted figure who was previously seen equipped with a flail attacking a knight.
Elden Ring’s co-creators are none other than Hidetaka Miyazaki (Dark Souls) and George R.R. Martin. A potentially genre-defining game, it has a planned release date of January 21, 2022, for consoles and PC. Players will be able to explore a vast open-world environment with weather effects and customize their character’s magical abilities, weapons, and skills.
In the wake of the Shattering, a blight claimed the mind of many a creature and man. Beware their chaotic frenzy.#ELDENRING pic.twitter.com/LDSXHZr5bY— ELDEN RING (@ELDENRING) September 10, 2021
A New World Created By Hidetaka Miyazaki And George R. R. Martin
The Golden Order has been broken.
Rise, Tarnished, and be guided by grace to brandish the power of the Elden Ring and become an Elden Lord in the Lands Between.
In the Lands Between ruled by Queen Marika the Eternal, the Elden Ring, the source of the Erdtree, has been shattered.
Marika’s offspring, demigods all, claimed the shards of the Elden Ring known as the Great Runes, and the mad taint of their newfound strength triggered a war: The Shattering. A war that meant abandonment by the Greater Will.
And now the guidance of grace will be brought to the Tarnished who were spurned by the grace of gold and exiled from the Lands Between. Ye dead who yet live, your grace long lost, follow the path to the Lands Between beyond the foggy sea to stand before the Elden Ring.
And become the Elden Lord.
