Elden RingAn action RPG born from the brains of From software And George R. MartinFinally, the proper publication was made at E3 2021. And now we’re starting to learn more about the story, folklore, and the world of the game.
One of the biggest highlights of the E32021’s big opener at the Summer Game Fest was the long-awaited Elden Ring trailer. This allowed enthusiastic fans to properly see the titles under development.
In an interview with IGNHidetaka Miyazaki, an iconic director, spilled beans on a lot of information about the game, provided a context for what he saw in the trailer, and filled the gap in knowledge about game folklore, the world, and the story.
“In the world of Eldenling, The Lands Between is blessed by the existence of Eldenling and the symbolic Erdtree, which brings grace and blessings to people all over the country, large and small. I did. ” The director when talking about the lore of the game.
“This is what they represent in this kind of golden light, or this golden aura, especially in their eyes. And this symbolizes the blessings and grace of the Eld Tree. But after a while, some people lost this grace and the light disappeared from their eyes, and these are known as discoloration. “
Years before the game was set up, Tarnished was banished and banished from the game world, but since their excommunication, the Elden Ring has been shattered. Currently, at the beginning of the game, Tarnished is being recalled to these unique lands.
According to Miyazaki, the Elden Ring will be held at The Lands Between. This place is intentionally designed to stimulate the sense of “huge scale and this spaciousness and openness”. The world is carved into six different territories, each belonging to a demigod that must be killed.
There is a “golden path” that the game suggests, but thanks to the game’s openness and a new focus on player freedom, you can conquer these areas in any order. A hub connects these areas, and there is also a “wide variety of catacombs, castles and fortresses scattered throughout the map”.
Mr. Miyazaki said as follows. “You don’t have access to everything from the beginning, but there are many ways to approach each area, and you also have a lot of freedom in the order in which you work in different areas.” You will be able to move between areas at high speed. I will.
Another interview with Famitsu Make sure you play as your own custom character (Dark Souls or Bloodborne rather than Sekiro) and have the same multiplayer elements as you’ve seen in other FromSoft titles. It allows you to collaborate in large open areas and boss battles, including asynchronous systems similar to those you’ve seen in past Dark Souls games.
By the way, this new trailer is the first game since it was announced almost two years ago.
The Elden Ring release date is set for January 21, 2022 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and PC. You can pre-order the game here.
