Elden Ring Shows New Gameplay

Earlier today FromSoftware, who previously developed Dark Souls and Bloodbourne, showed off some new footage of their will-be smash hit, Elden Ring. Watch the trailer here:

Based on what we have seen so far, this game will definitely live up to the hype that it’s generating. Graphically it retains that FromSoftware aesthetic while managing to look visually ethereal… Is that a good way of putting it? Anyway… the world looks beautiful and looks to be packed with more fantasy elements.

The gameplay looks incredibly fluid. Even more so than FromSoftware’s predecessors. This game looks like it will allow a little more versatility to the attacks, allowing attacking from the air and horseback. And there looks to be more of a allowance for stealth gameplay. On top of that, there will be a greater focus on magic and player builds. This will give variety and greater utility in the items you pick up. Players will have fun being able to approach and defeat enemies in a variety of ways.

They have kept invasions as a part of online gameplay. But it will also be possible to play cooperatively with other players online. One of things shown in the gameplay trailer is a co-op boss fight that looks AWESOME. Some of the NPCs shown are more traditional RPG characters while some of them are more unique and whimsical. I think this will be a really unique gameplay experience and I can’t wait to pick it up!


Elden Ring Delayed by a Month

FromSoftware’s (Souls Series, Sekiro, Bloodborne) highly anticipated collaboration with George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones), Elden Ring, has been pushed back a month from its previous release date of January 21, 2022.

With all of the delays that have been happening in the game development world recently, Elden Ring being pushed back to only February 25 doesn’t seem so bad.

There was also recently a leak of the game that shows some of the wonder of vast open world. And man is it glorious. The footage doesn’t contain any spoilers. It just shows the player walking around and jumping. (It feels really weird to see a dark-souls-like character jump lol).

If you want to see the leaked footage, user ‘Adddicteddd’ posted it on Youtube. Check it out here:
