Elden Ring is an upcoming open-world ARPG developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki and is being produced in collaboration with New York Times best-selling author, George R. R. Martin who creates the world’s mythos of the game. Elden Ring will be available on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 that is speculated to be released in 2020.


"In an interview with Bandai Namco, game director Hidetaka Miyazaki explained the collaborative process involved Martin discussing Miyazaki’s ideas, and then writing the world’s backstory after that. Confirming this in discussion with IGN, Miyazaki explained that he felt the process of videogame design would be too constricting for the author. So while Martin has provided the “mythos,” the game story is all Miyazaki."



Elden Ring Overview

I doubt you could even imagine it... that which commanded the stars, giving life its fullest brilliance - the Elden Ring. Oh! the Elden Ring shattered by someone, or something. 

Elden Ring is an upcoming ARPG that introduces a new open-world where players can expect a larger world scale, allowing freedom of exploration. It also highlights a significant amount of RPG elements, "a wide variety of weapons, magic, and ways to engage enemies with the strategies that suit you" as per Miyazaki.

Elden Ring is a third-person action RPG with a dark fantasy setting where the story revolves around the Elden Ring. Legend has it that the ring holds unimaginable power "that which commanded the stars, giving life its fullest brilliance" and that the ring has been destroyed by something or someone. This then leads to the destruction and decay of the world, the sky burning, and brings parallels to the collapsing sun of the Souls universe.

Elden Ring Key Features

A Vast Open World

Although the information for this game is vague, game director Miyazaki stated that “there are many definitions to the term ‘open world,’ and I might not be phrasing it correctly, but we have simply tried our own approach to a game with a large, open field to play in.” - players can expect a new broader world that can be freely explored and players will also be able to mount a horse and possibly fight from horseback.


New Compositions

According to Miyazaki, “Villages will be the dark dungeon-like ruins that you have come to expect from us.” This sounds like the game will introduce traditional "dungeons" that are linked to the open-world which opens up complete freedom for both exploration, combat, lore, and player progression.


Character Creation and Combat

Elden Ring was emphasized as the largest project that is being developed in terms of scale and content. Miyazaki stated that “there is no fixed main character in Elden Ring. We mostly leave it up to the player to decide the characteristics and personality of the character they create.” which allows the player the freedom to create how their character looks. As far as combat goes, Miyazaiki states that “this title will include a wide variety of weapons, magic, and ways to engage enemies, that make it possible to provide users with a style of gameplay and strategy that suits them”.
