It felt like it would be an eternity before we would get new information on Elder Ring, the new project from writer George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) and the developers at From Software (Dark Souls). But thanks to Geoff Keighley and the Summer Game Fest, we didn’t have to wait too much longer.
A new gameplay trailer for Elden Ring has been revealed, along with a release date. It’s hacking its way to PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 21, 2022.
And from the looks of things, you’re going to have your hands full.
The game will once again put you in charge of a powerful warrior, one that’s asked to take on dangerous beasts big and small. But rather than just slicing your way through them with a sword, you’ll have access to special abilities, including dangerous clones and other tools of the trade.
Though the gameplay is on the brief side, it does give you an idea of the devastating grief that lies ahead. It also shows that From Software is taking advantage of new consoles – like the PlayStation 5 – with the game’s design, as it looks more ambitious than any of their previous efforts. And yes, that includes Bloodborne.
Scope out the trailer below and prepare for some challenging goodness early next year!
