After months of leaks and rumours, highly-anticipated action RPG Elden Ring has finally been revealed.

It is a brand new IP and a world created by two legends, Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki, the legendary game designer behind the Souls series, Bloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment, Elden Ring has been kept secret for almost two full years since its initial announcement at E3 2019.

Elden Ring gameplay and featuers

We still don't have many details in regards to the game's gameplay features, but we expect more information to come in the following months.

We do know that players will be able to create custom characters instead of playing as a premade protagonist, and we know that the game will focus more on dungeons, ruins and huge open-world areas, instead of on populated towns with NPCs, which was the case with Dark Souls games.

Overall, the game will be much bigger in terms of scale than any other previous FromSoftware game.

In terms of pure gameplay mechanics, like combat, character progression, and others, we still don't have any details.

We will update the article as soon as more information becomes available.
