If you’re a fantasy fan who’s still on the fence about FromSoftware’s Elden Ring, a new overview may finally have you convinced.
The fantasy action RPG has been developed by the Dark Souls studio in collaboration with George R.R. Martin – yep, the bloke who penned what became Game of Thrones.
Players will journey through the Lands Between, a new fantasy world concocted by Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and Martin.
The game is set to deliver expansive landscapes and complex dungeons to explore, with a vast selection of weapons, magical abilities and skills to be unearthed as you set out to unravel the mysteries of the Elden Ring’s power and become the Elden Lord. It’s being billed as FromSoftware’s largest game to date, and we’ll be able to traverse the land via foot or on horseback, either solo or with other players online.
Naturally, all of those weapons and abilities will come into play as there’s evil about, with a minefield of adversaries with various motivations to navigate – plus, of course, an array of fantastical, fearsome creatures to engage in battle with.
Elden Ring launches for PS5, Xbox and PS4 on February 25. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
