Elden Ring was postponed to February, and closed network testing was announced in November

The highly anticipated Elden Ring has been postponed, but only for more than a month. FromSoftware announced that its open world soul style adventure will now launch on February 25th instead of January 21st.

in a tweet, FromSoftware stated that it decided to postpone the game because “the depth and strategic freedom of the game exceeded initial expectations.”

However, there is also a bright side. The company also announced the launch of closed network testing of the game in November. This means that selected players can try Elden Ring in just a few weeks to help stress test servers and other systems, because the game has cooperative and online gaming capabilities.The test will be available on current and previous generation PlayStation and Xbox consoles, but not on PC, you must register to have the opportunity to participate, you can do so here. Registration will end on November 1st. The closed network test will be conducted five times within the specified time window. The schedule is as follows:

  • Session 1: November 12-3:00 AM to 6:00 AM Pacific Time
  • Session 2: November 12th Pacific Time-7:00pm to 10:00pm
  • Session 3: November 13th, Pacific Time-11:00 AM to 2:00 PM
  • Session 4: November 14th Pacific Time-3:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Elden Ring’s latency is relatively small, which also provides some breathing space for Pokémon Legends: Arceus. On the other hand, Elden Ring is now launched in a month that has accumulated. Other large open world games such as Forbidden West, Dying Light 2 Stay Human and Saints Row all competed for players’ dollars in February. In fact, it is now launched on the same day as the relaunched Saints Row.
