After a long time in the darkness, FromSoftware’s Elden Ring has finally been brought back to light during the Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live.
Not only we get to see gameplay, but we also learn that the game is coming on January 21, 2022, for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
You can watch the trailer below.
You can also read some comments from director Hidetaka Miyazaki and from Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, who is working on world building, on top of additional details from Miyazaki-san himself.
If you’re unfamiliar with Elden Ring (since we haven’t heard about it for a while) here’s how Bandai Namco describes it.
“Unparalleled adventure awaits in ELDEN RING, the next epic fantasy title created by FromSoftware, Inc. and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.
ELDEN RING is FromSoftware’s largest game to-date and is set in a sprawling realm steeped in a rich and bloody history crafted by Hidetaka Miyazaki – creator of the influential and critically acclaimed 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.”
