Elden Ring has finally determined the release date: January 21, 2022. At the opening ceremony of the Summer Game Festival on Thursday, Dark Souls manufacturer FromSoftware announced the first game trailer for its next game-a collaboration between game director Hidetaka Miyazaki and the author of “Game of Thrones” George RR Martin — Coming soon on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Steam for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Host users do not need to purchase Elden Ring twice, because the game will support free upgrades from PS4 to PS5. If you want to transfer from Xbox One to S/X series, you can choose “Smart Delivery”. More details about Elden Ring will naturally be revealed in the rest of 2021.
With Elden Ring, FromSoftware promises to provide open gameplay and a world where you choose your destiny. You can decide to rush to your opponent directly in battle, or you can use Elden Ring’s stealth and combat system to stand out. In order to adapt, Elden Ring has a role-playing aspect that allows players to develop these different game styles. You can choose from a variety of weapons, magical abilities, and skills acquired worldwide. As for the battle itself, you will naturally encounter various monsters and weird creatures, including fire-breathing dragons.
During your journey, you will encounter many characters who have their own motivations to help you or hinder you. As you complete the adventure and unlock the secrets and myths of this land, you will decide what will happen in the fantasy world envisioned by Miyazaki and Martin. The world of Elden Ring also has natural weather and time course, which means it will have a 24-hour day and night cycle, interspersed with rain, storm, snow and other weather phenomena. The landscape of the Ring of Eldon is dotted with “grass plains, suffocating swamps, dense forests, hovering mountains, and breathtaking castles.”
You can explore the Elden Ring by yourself, or you can choose to explore with up to four players in a multiplayer online cooperative game. It may work in a similar way to other FromSoftware games, but we can’t be sure until we have more details on this.
In a prepared statement, Hayao Miyazaki said: “In “Elden Ring”, we used all the dark fantasy and action RPG expertise cultivated in the Dark Souls series to create a bold classic evolution of this genre. “According to the legendary story written by George RR Martin for the game, we have created a rich world with an amazing sense of scale. Elden Ring is a world full of mystery and danger, waiting to be explored and discovered; a mystery of various characters showing off themselves And drama with ulterior motives. We sincerely hope you enjoy experiencing it yourself.”
Elden Ring will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X on January 21, 2022.
