As we go into 2021, we’re rounding up everything we know about our most anticipated games, including Elden Ring.
Isn’t it a little funny that we’ve than from the actual developers behind the game? Developer From Software sure is keeping details about Elden Ring close to the chest, but we do know a bit about the upcoming game.
From Software is developing the game in collaboration with Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, telling a story where you’re exploring an open world full of different kingdoms that are each ruled by a powerful entity. When you defeat a ruler, you gain their unique power–a system that sounds like (but isn’t confirmed to be) how you can acquire the abilities and weapons of Dark Souls bosses by transfiguring their souls.
When talking to GameSpot, Spencer said, “As somebody who’s played all of Miyazaki’s games over at least the last decade, [Elden Ring] is clearly the most ambitious game that he’s done. I mean, I love his games, but seeing some of the gameplay mechanics stuff that he’s tackling, he and the team are tackling this time, of the setting, working with another creator in terms of story. I love it.”
We hope Elden Ring is coming out in 2021, but From Software hasn’t confirmed a release date yet. So while a 2021 release has not been ruled out, it very well might not be coming out until 2022 or beyond.
Elden Ring is scheduled to launch for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. No word on current gen console versions, but we’re betting that the game makes its way to Xbox Series X|S and PS5 at some point.
PC System Specs
From Software hasn’t yet revealed the minimum or recommended PC specs for Elden Ring.
We have one single trailer for Elden Ring. It was released during E3 2019, when Elden Ring was first announced. The trailer, embedded below, –which, granted, makes a lot of sense given that From Software likes to pull from the Souls games well when designing its games.
