Since the announcement of a dark fantasy game at E3 2019, the Dark Souls maker Fromsoftware has been mum on further details. As a result, fans of the Souls-Borne genre games were left with only one trailer to satisfy their excitement. Elden Ring, the long-awaited dark fantasy action RPG from FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment, was finally presented at Summer Game Fest 2021. They teased the first gameplay trailer of the upcoming game. The company broke its silence with a full-fledged, almost three-minute-long gameplay clip. The anticipated release date for the title is January 21st, 2022.
For a person, the trailer is just an action-packed video that lasts almost three minutes. However, it has much more information for enthusiasts of this genre. The trailer features various firsts, such as mounts, as the player is seen flying around the realm on a flying horse. In addition, the teaser displays glimpses of what appear to be other people engaged in a fight. Players, as in any previous Souls-Borne game, are able to design their own characters, according to the report. Elden Ring is clearly greater than any previous Souls game from FromSoftware, and though the mystery of the Elden Ring will likely puzzle players long after release, we may at least marvel at the scale on which it operates.
FromSoftware promises open-ended gameplay and a universe where you can choose your own fate with the Elden Ring. In conflicts, you can choose to charge straight at your opponents or to employ Elden Ring’s stealth and combat mechanics to win.
The game is an outcome of a high-profile collaboration between game director Hidetaka Miyazaki and author of Game of Thrones George R.R. Martin, who was in charge of constructing Eldin Ring’s Universe and myth for Miyazaki and the Fromsoftware crew to fit in. Two blockbuster fantasy authors were working on a game together, this news fueled the fan community’s desire to learn more about Elden Ring and speculate about it.
