Read details on the game below:

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.

Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware Inc. and produced by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc., is a fantasy action RPG and FromSoftware’s largest game to date, set within a world full of mystery and peril.

Key Features:

  • A New Fantasy World – Journey through the Lands Between, a new fantasy world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of the influential Dark Souls video game series, and George R. R. Martin, author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Unravel the mysteries of the Elden Ring’s power. Encounter adversaries with profound backgrounds, characters with their own unique motivations for helping or hindering your progress, and fearsome creatures.
  • World Exploration in the Lands Between  Elden Ring features vast fantastical landscapes and shadowy, complex dungeons that are connected seamlessly. Traverse the breathtaking world on foot or on horseback, alone or online with other players, and fully immerse yourself in the grassy plains, suffocating swamps, spiraling mountains, foreboding castles and other sites of grandeur on a scale never seen before in a FromSoftware title.
  • Genre-Defining Gameplay – Create your character in FromSoftware’s refined action RPG and define your playstyle by experimenting with a wide variety of weapons, magical abilities, and skills found throughout the world. Charge into battle, pick off enemies one-by-one using stealth, or even call upon allies for aid. Many options are at your disposal as you decide how to approach exploration and combat.

Never thought I would see the day where From Software games would be mainstream. They definitely deserve it.

I genuinely wonder how this works, since a lot of these games are cross-buy now. As in, if I get the PSN digital version, I get a PS4 and PS5 version. Is that impacting sales at all?

Because if so 4 of those copies are me. PS4 digital, PS5 Digital, PS5 physical, and PC.

I know this isn't needed as much in current times, but man, seems crazy that either Sony or Microsoft wouldn't want this game as a pack-in title for a console bundle at Black Friday/holiday sales time.

So far it feels exactly like the last few titles. I just beat the first boss at the castle entrance. Does it change from here on?

It IS open world Souls, the same, but different. Mostly same mechanisms, but it gives you much more freedom to go where you want without being stuck somewhere. And it is much easier, if you want it to be, by using spirit ashes.
