Is Elden Ring this year’s most anticipated game right now? It certainly seems like it. The spiritual successor to From Software’s Souls series is just a month away from launch and the hype surrounding it is very real indeed. Developed in collaboration with George R. R. Martin, Elden Ring looks like it’ll continue From Software’s strong world building and mythology coupled with challenging, and often times brutal, combat.
With only a month till release, the game is confirmed to have gone gold through a twitter post and a 46 minute long video from the Taipei Game Show 2022. The game was originally scheduled to release in January of this year but was pushed back to February. Now while a master version has been produced and submitted for approval, that doesn’t stop the development team from continuing to work on the title, mainly on a Day One patch at the moment to make sure everything works as intended come launch.
For those interested in the Taipei Games Show video, you can check it out below. For everyone else, there’s a compilation of the new gameplay shown off in the Taipei video just below it.
The traditional Souls style combat is very much in evidence in the new gameplay footage, along with some new additions, such as some stealth style gameplay, mounted combat and some cool looking magical combat. There’s also a glimpse at the world map which looks to promise a truly massive and epic open world experience.
If you’re not convinced yet that this should be on your radar, here’s the games story trailer to get you hyped for when Elden Ring launches on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series machines and PC on February 25th, 2022.
