ELDEN RING will launch on January 21, 2022 for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via STEAM It will support English voice-overs and English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian, Neutral Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean subtitle options.


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 BetweenElden 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.

"With ELDEN RING, we have applied all our dark fantasy and action-RPG expertise cultivated throughout the Dark Souls series, in order to create a bold, classical evolution of the genre,” commented Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director at FromSoftware, “We've crafted a rich world with a staggering sense of scale, based off of legends written for the game by George R. R. Martin.
ELDEN RING is a world full of mystery and peril, ready to be explored and discovered; a drama in which various characters flaunt their own mystique and ulterior motives. We sincerely hope you enjoy experiencing it for yourself.”


“I am very happy and excited to announce the release date of ELDEN RING, a new game created by Mr. Miyazaki and Mr. George R.R. Martin, two creators that I truly admire and have a passionate fan base around the world. I am very happy and excited to be able to tell you about it.”
Added Yasuo Miyakawa, President & CEO, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. “
We will continue to develop ELDEN RING not only as a game but also in a variety of other areas in order to deliver the worldview and charm of this title to our fans around the world. We look forward to your continued support.”


Rise, Tarnished.

I don't hype for games at all, but damn this looks good. It's hard not to get excited about this game after the gameplay trailer. In the past I bought maybe 2 games at launch because games are expensive compared to what I earn, but so far this looks like another day 1 for me.

I'm not a fan of buying games on day 1 but I may do it for Elden Ring. I liked what I saw in the trailer and I can't wait to dive into this game.

I don't get the hype. It looks like Dark Souls 4 with a horse and bad lastgen graphics. Somehow aesthetically the trailer looks ugly to me.

I was really hoping this would be something fresh and different by From.

  • different types of spirits (use them for assaults, as decoy, for defense etc)
  • Spirits can be improved apparently
  • There are also rather useless spirits with other traits
  • multiplayer support during exploration on the open fields (but you are not able to ride your horses in multiplayer apparently)
  • ER is more "manageable" due to the many different options the player has but there are still many tough enemies

  • the actual dungeons do not have a map
  • crafting system with materials
  • Miyazaki guesses playtime is maybe at 30 hours "without too many side trips"
