Elden Ring Gameplay

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Elden Ring Wiki covers Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc, is a fantasy action-RPG adventure set within a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki -creator of the influential DARK SOULS video game series, and George R R Martin - author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware's largest game to-date.


Hidetaka Miyazaki, President and Game Director of FromSoftware Inc known for directing critically-acclaimed games in beloved franchises including Armored Core, Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro Shadows Die Twice.


George R R Martin is the On  the New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the acclaimed series A Song of Ice and One - A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast For Crows, and A Dance with Dragons. As a writer-producer, he has worked on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and pilots that were never made.

 

Elden Ring Reveal

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  • Elden Ring has been in production since the end of the Dark Souls III DLC.
    This is in contrast to Sekiro, that begun production in 2015 after Bloodborne.
  • Elden Ring will release on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4
  • Bandai Namco is publishing and has registered the Elden Ring IP
  • Elden Ring Release Date – From our observations
    The release window for this game is unlikely to match FromSoftware’s traditional March-April, and is more likely to fall into Dark Souls’ September-October release.
  • “Elden Ring is a third-person action RPG with a fantasy setting… gameplay is not so far from Dark Souls… Elden Ring belongs to the same genre.”
  • Plethora of weapons, magic and builds, and a focus on RPG elements. FromSoftware expects equipment variety to be larger than Souls in this regard.
  • No main fixed protagonist, players create the characteristics and personality of their character. This leads us to believe Character Creation is a given.
  • The World of Elden Ring is vast and interconnected. No longer a continuity of “levels”, players see vast landscapes in between the “dungeon-esque” areas.
  • The larger world scale allows for freedom, promotes exploration, and introduces new and exciting mechanics, such as Horse Riding and Mounted Combat.
  • Elden Ring is a “natural evolution of Dark Souls.” New mechanics needed by this larger world. Expect FromSoftware’s trademark challenging boss battles.
  • Towns won’t be full of villagers, merchants and the like. They will be ruins, dungeons and exploration hubs. As Souls there is no vast population of NPCs.
  • The NPCs the player finds are expected to be the most compelling yet in the studio’s work, thanks to Martin’s involvement in the Mythos.
    George R. R. Martin has written the world’s mythos and Hidetaka Miyazaki has written the game story.
  • Story will be revealed through “fragments of environmental storytelling” as in previous Souls games.
  • Mythos and the present moment of the player are connected and exploration will lead players to understand why things are as they are.
  • There is no information at time of writing about multiplayer/online/invasions.

Elden Ring Pre-Release: What We Knew Before Launch

 

Elden Ring Story Overview

The Lands Between

lore image1 elden ring wik guide 300px

The Lands Between is the world of Elden Ring, and to those who live in The Lands Between were blessed by the Elden Ring and the "Erdtree". Those who were blessed by the Elden Ring are characterized by having a golden aura that can be seen in their eyes. However, at some point, some of those who were blessed, lost their grace, was exiled and labeled as the Tarnished.  As time passed, for unknown reasons, the Elden Ring was shattered across the lands and its pieces were picked up by many of the 6 demigods, where they inherited different powers and have physically changed and twisted due to being corrupted by the power.

The Lands Between is broken into 6 distinct areas that is overseen by a demigod and features a central hub that connects all these 6 areas. According to an interview with Miyazaki, players will have total freedom as to the order they want to tackle for each area, and it is up to the player on how they want to approach it. Apart from that the hub will not be accessible at the beginning of the game, which means you will need to progress the game until you reach the hub area.

According to Hidetaka Miyazaki: "The Lands Between is supposed to invoke this feeling of something that's very mysterious and very ethereal – and we hope that when players play the game, they're going to experience that." 

The Tarnished

lore image2 elden ring wik guide 300px

In the official reveal trailer that was presented in E3 2021, you'll see a softly spoken, hooded woman saying "The Tarnished, will soon return." The question is, who and what is The Tarnished? Simple, The Tarnished is you, the player, you are one of the Tarnished that have been exiled upon losing their blessing that was given by the Elden Ring and the "Erdtree", a tree that hosts source and life of The Lands Between. Very much like previous Souls games, you are the chosen undead or the ashen one. You are then called back to The Lands Between, as well as the other Tarnished after the destruction of the Elden Ring to recover the shards of the Elden Ring, to make them whole once again, and to become the lord of The Lands Between.

According to Hidetaka Miyazaki in an interview: " I feel like one of the main themes of the game is how the player, the Tarnished, approaches or treats this new-found grace and this return to the land that they were once banished from, how they interpret this and the meaning. It's not just the player-character, of course, it's lots of characters in the game, who are all beckoned back and will have their own adventures and motives. We want the player to discover for themselves what that means and how they want to begin their adventure."

 

Combat in Elden Ring

Stealth

elden ring artwork elden ring wiki guide 17 300px

Stealth mechanics seem that will be present and may be useful in combination with backstab attacks, also the game may feature a night and day mechanic that may affect the stealth mechanic as well. Stealth as many are aware of, will allow the player to crouch, sneak, and hide behind tall grass to be less detected by the enemy. Stealth will play an integral mechanic in combat since you can use it to your advantage to sneak behind an enemy to instantly kill them or at least deal a large amount of damage from using a stealth attack.

Freedom in Character Build

elden ring artwork elden ring wiki guide 4 300px

In the trailer that was revealed in E3 2021, we see a lot of unique Skills, magical abilities, and even having a horse leaping up a cliffisde, as well as attacking while riding your Mount. These are Skills that you pick up through the player's progression and exploration. There are some cases that a player can acquire a skill through purchasing it from merchants or learning them from an NPC, but during an interview with Hidetaka Miyazaki that was featured, he stresses out that in general, skils are hidden throughout the game's world, and it is the player's responsibiility to discover these through exploration.

Elden Ring will have complete freedom when it comes to building up your character, you are basically free to combine your Skills with different weapons and equipment, and you'll learn magic as well. Skills are freely interchangeable between a large variety of weapons as per Hidetaka Miyazaki, and that there are around 100 Skills. With having less restrictions, players will have even more variations of Builds that is even richer than previous Souls games.

Day & Night Cycle

elden ring artwork elden ring wiki guide 15 300px

Real-time changes are featured in Elden Ring in the form of the Day and Night cycle, as well as Dynamic Weather. These features also heavily affect gameplay, combat, and the world you are exploring. For example, in cases that you are romaing at night, both players and enemies will change in terms of aggression due to a decrease in visibility, and some special enemies that only appear at night will come out.

Covenants

Traditional souls Covenants or Factions are not feature of Elden RingElden Ring Covenants are instead player-chosen allegiances or pledges undertaken to specific deities or groups of NPCs. Based on previous titles, Players can expect their covenant to affect their gameplay by changing their Online interactions, or by creating new situations were users can collect special items or defeat certain enemies to rank up and obtain special rewards. Rewards are usually MagicWeapons and Armor pieces.

New Mechanics

elden ring artwork elden ring wiki guide 5 300px

Elden Ring will have a large scale in terms of the world and exploration, and to go hand-in-hand with this, some new mechanics are introduced such as jumping, yes players can jump now, as well as riding on horseback (Mounts). Hidetaka Miyazaki strongly suggests that you thoroughly search and explore every section of the world to find Skills that are hidden.

There are a number of choices as well that players can approach their way of combat, some may be brave and choose to go on head-to-head, while others would rather have allies such as being able to summon the spirits of deceased enemies.

Summoning the Dead

summon combat info elden ring wiki guide 300px

One of the combat aspects of Elden Ring is being able to summon Spirits that can help you in battle. These spirits are usually the fallen souls of the enmies that you defeat, and summoning them will have them assist you in combat. These are your offline summons, and it is quite different to have your friends or other playres summoned to your session which is available in Online co-op play. What's interesting with multiplayer is that you can even set a password on your calling marks, so that this way you can just have your friends join your session, if you're more comfortable with that rather than having a random drop in.

Accorting to Miyazaki, "|These spirit summons, we feel like – as well as there being a large variety to them – they're a nice collectable hidden element within the game world to discover and to equip as you go. They offer a lot of different strategic options, but also the player might find that they just like a certain enemy tagging along with them, a certain summon pleases them aesthetically. So there's a lot of strategic and a lot of personal touch to these summons. And we hope that players will also enjoy discovering their own progression elements as well."

Game Difficulty

elden ring artwork elden ring wiki guide 13 300px

There will only be ONE difficulty in Elden Ring. The decision of FromSoftware leaning towards this feature can benefit both new and veteran players of this genre. Elden Ring features a large scale when it comes to its world and exploration, so it does make sense that it really is up to you on how you want to tackle the game, it is highly encouraged that players carefully assess the situation that lies ahead and to find different ways to deal with it. This also provides a good camaraderie within the community since everyone can share their experiences and hopefully help one another.

        If the Dark Souls I and Dark Souls II servers are still offline and an Elden Ring DLC comes out, i'm gonna be real tight. I'd much rather do invasions in a game where I don't have to make some op bleed build to kill gankers. (Invasions not duels)

          It would be so nice if you could find a way to load your ads at the same time the rest of the page loads so your don't start reading for 3-4 seconds only to have the screen reformat and offset what your reading several inches down the page EVERY TIME you load a new page. It's annoying as F**K and reduces the map and text size to half of the usable area. I'm sure SOUL HACKERS 2 is the best thing since sliced bread, but come on...try advertising it in a way that doesn't make you want to scream expletives every time you see it!!!!

          • compared to other fromsoftware games, I find elden ring lacking the same replayability value that I find in the other games, hell, even Dark Souls 2 has more replay value.

                Literally Dark Soul 2, but ugly and worse.

                An insult to any open world games in circulation and in development.

                • Anonymous

                  I probably should have given this game another year of patches and updates before buying it. It's very clearly unfinished in some areas and many enemies have barely been playtested, if at all. I have very low hopes for future DLC. They will most likely just release whatever they had planned in said DLC and not bother to fix or restore any current content. Maybe in two or three years we might at least see a content restoration mod or something like that.

                    If you found Elden Ring enjoyable and wish to explore more Fromsoftware games here are my recommendations:
                    If you like Elden Ring for its open world, technologically speaking Dark souls 1 can be somewhat non-linear, but Dark souls 2 is more centered around it (although you might want to check out the Seeker of Fire or Augur of Darkness mods before play it).
                    If you like Elden Ring for its scenery then you might also like Sekiro: shadows die twice and Bloodborne.
                    If you like Elden Ring but more methodically then may want to check out Demon's Souls and Dark souls 1.
                    If you like Elden Ring but better bosses then Dark souls 3, Sekiro, and Bloodborne are your picks.
                    (I know I'm going to get a lot of hate for this but) if you like Elden Ring's lore then the closest one is Dark souls 2's, but if you generally like Fromsoftware's lore building then you might like Dark souls 1's and Bloodborne's lore.
                    If you like Elden Ring's PVP then you might like Dark Souls 3's (although right now its having trouble because of a security breach).
                    If you want a Fromsoft game with faster pace then Armor core and Bloodborne are good choices.
                    If you like the stealth mechanic, Sekiro: shadows die twice has you covered.
                    If deflecting attacks before a KO or parrying sounds fun, the you'll love Sekiro: shadows die twice and Bloodborne.
                    If you want more of a story and NPC interactions, you might like Déraciné (however you need a playstation VR set to play it) and Sekiro.
                    If you like Elden Ring's gameplay as is, then Dark souls 2 is the closest one.
                    If you want to fight against bosses that are obscenely gigantic than yourself, well, each Fromsoftware game has its own share of towering bosses, but the ones with the most are Demon's souls and Dark souls 1.

                      To be fair there are ways to get early op in the Souls game aswell. Remember Demons Souls and the Magic Falchion. Dark Souls and the Drake Sword. Dark Souls 3 and the Dark Hand. And until Sulyvahn pretty much all bosses are push overs with that weapon. Bloodborne and Sekiro may be the only games where we cannot cheese this hard and have to actually work to get OP. I mean I have problems with Elden Ring myself but I think we are a bit biased here if we say this is a break with traditions. When the implemented Easy Mode was always part of that tradition.

                            Every boss can be outplayed if you one tap them and time dodges. After 10+ tries you can remember any bosses move set so don’t get discouraged.This game teaches discipline with patience, memory, not to be greedy, and experimentation.

                              For a pure strength build i needed to level up to SL119/knight class to reach all the hard caps (40vig/40end/66str) in Dark Souls 3. If I do the same for the vagabound class in ER I will end up with runelevel 159 (60vig/50end/80str). I think there is our meta level boys and girls: >.

                                  Input Buffer is extra special in this. You want to dodge role, get hit. You SLOWLY stand up, you and the boss look each other in the eyes. For a long time. And after sesonds which feel like an eternity your character suddenly starts to role around ignoring all your commands until that point.

                                      My first and last FS game, I won't give money to a company that caves in to the pvp community's demands about nerfs when it's a 99% pve game. I've played hundreds of games in my life,guaranteed far more than any of you. Never have I encountered such a toxic bunch of a-holes that can't shut up to the point where the majority of people playing solo are also affected by their complaints. Didn't like that FS opened up to other players? Well you're getting your game back, you're the biggest problem FS has to allowing others to embrace their games.

                                            Ds3 has more unique boss fights and enemy variety. Er is so bad in that, even ds2 can be excused for repeating bosses because Miyazaki was not involved. But for his 'masterpiece'? Lol just no.

                                            • my opinion:

                                              Game looks good world looks good, enemies look good

                                              Weapons are pretty cool all look nice for the world

                                              bosses look good

                                              but

                                              balancing sucks
                                              bosses are not as good as DS3
                                              some attacks suck
                                              a lot of poorly made duo bosses (godskin)
                                              alot of copy pasted bosses, i get for lore reasons but come one FS.

                                              and of course the worst thing about elden ring

                                                God, I hate this game so much... 6/10. Every day, I regret buying it a little more than I did the day before.

                                                    I may, or may not, end up writing a review of this game soon; a thing that nobody else gives a **** about, but it's sightly relevant to this post: I can't possibly give this game a score higher than 6/10. It's not total ****, but it's definitely not a great game; it's okay, at best.

                                                      I can't help but feel that a lot of people who have played the previous games are disappointed in the open world. At least I know that's the case for me. And I think it's because it didn't really add anything to the experience for us. The main selling point of the open world is that you can go somewhere else if the game is too tough. But if you're already comfortable with the difficulty, that doesn't mean much to you. So while I think the open world provides greater accessibility, the core experience remains largely unchanged and is even dilluted to some extent by being embedded in an open world. To me, the best parts of the game were the legacy dungeons, but even those are cheapened by recurring enemy placements and a lack of environmental storytelling. Essentially, Elden Ring is a game that'll appeal to more people, but less to a certain subset of players.

                                                        Game was amazing. But I don't understand why 100percent of the npcs are caucasian in the year 2022 like yeah sorry I am an angry black woman get over it. We also enjoy the fantasy genre. just in case you were curious

                                                        • First Soul game here, I wholeheartedly adore it, of course there are a few things that can be improved here and there. But my foremost advice to newbies getting into it for the first time: Try experiencing the game without interacting with the community, you can look things up for gameplay help but avoid listening to what others think about it until you derive your own thoughts completing the game. Thanks me later.

                                                            Compared to the breadth of games in the gaming world (non-souls player, after completion of all achievements):

                                                            Mythology and story lines- 9/10 (excellent, but some quest lines too short vs end game)
                                                            World building/immersion to world- 10/10 (amazing detail, especially architecture)
                                                            Gameplay- 8/10 (some interesting mechanics like guard counters, spirit summons, weapon arts)
                                                            Character advancement- 5/10 (resource scarcity especially upgrade mats conspicuous to create artificial difficulty)
                                                            General UI/settings- 6/10 (conspicuous absence of difficulty modes is inconsistent with gaming industry, no quest menu, other missing obvious elements)
                                                            Performance- 7/10 (some pc lags can be bad even exceeding recommended specs)
                                                            Community- 2/10 (toxic to be honest, unfriendly to those new to FS games, FS veterans pointlessly advocating nerfs to make a single player game harder for others)
                                                            Completion time- 5/10 (game was about 30% larger than needed, even veteran FS players I know were burning out and had to take a break)
                                                            Co-op- 0/10 (the fact that you can be invaded while playing with a friend is unheard of in the gaming world at large, substandard in comparison to other games)
                                                            Overall rating- 6.5/10
                                                            Would recommend to others? It's a hugely time-intensive game with huge minimum specs, and the difficulty is no joke without upgrades. Would not recommend to casual or exploration players, due to lack of difficulty settings, and will not be welcomed in to the current FS community at all. Only recommend to veteran game players who are open to challenging combat.

                                                              Overall, I would give Elden Ring a 9.25/10.

                                                              Some things need serious tweaking (like the crafting system), but it's one of the better games released in a long time.

                                                              Pulled me away from Skyrim and still does.

                                                                My first 100 hours with Elden Ring: “this is a masterpiece, 10/10, easily From’s best game.” My next 300 hours with Elden Ring: “wow… uh… deafening silence from the developer, discovery of mimic tear+ROB super-easy mode, obvious casual pandering with no BHS or exploit nerfs in PvP… 7/10, hope this isn’t the future of From’s games.”

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    I’m glad from successfully made an open world game, and the game is bomb in a lot of ways,

                                                                    but I personally look forward to less open-world type games they make in the future, the reasons for which I think are represented well in that YouTube video. Just sharing for those who may be likeminded and want to flesh out their opinions

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Of the wikis I've seen, this one is one of the least obsessive about finding exact enemy stats. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it IS somewhat inconvenient for me, as I'm usually looking for those when I come here. Not sure if that's a trend with other Fextralife wikis or not.

                                                                          • Anonymous

It is the entire reason i even decided to try these games I tried out ds3 a few weeks before release to see if I enjoyed souls genre and if i should get elden ring. but I honestly feel bad for people who have been in the soulsborne community longer. Because elden ring is such a popular game it lured in annoying toxic people from other fanbases over here. Now here we sit with a insufferable community that is painful to listen to.

Instead of fixing the 3 or 4 spells that had bugged chain casting animations, they just remove it from everything instead? What a lazy blanket fix to an issue people weren’t even complaining about much to begin with

Need to tell somebody that this it's a pretty awful experience. Really hard to navigate at times, sporadic broken image links, and 50/50 chance the search bar works and doesn't try to redirect me to the comment box instead. Also, the fact I'm getting insecure connection warnings is kinda sketchy.

Im saying this cause i feel like everything after the capital feels boring and kind of rushed. In my personal opinion atleast.

Elden Ring has so many customization options and I feel like that ruined the balancing. I can't even blame the designers, this is probably the most common problem with open worlds. Tho I can understand that people who care more about exploration and experimentation love the game.
