Get your first look at Elden Ring’s gameplay in this new trailer
Elden Ring finally has a release date. Today at the Summer Game Fest 2021 which takes place as part of E3 2021, Bandai Namco and FromSoftware showed the first Elden Ring footage since the game’s surprise announcement a few years ago.
In its initial reveal, a release date for Elden Ring was left out. Instead, players keen to step into the world of the upcoming FromSoftware game were only given a cutscene. It did well to paint a picture of what was to come.
But with just one glance so far, fans have been bitten to get any information on the progress of the game. Thanks to Geoff Keighley of Summer Game Fest, players get both a release date and actual gameplay footage.
Elden Ring has a January 21, 2022 release date
If you are a fan of FromSoftware games like Dark Souls 1-3, Demon Soul’s and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (which is still on our Top 10 Best PC Games list), then you’re probably having a hard time containing your enthusiasm for Elden Ring.
As this is the next game from FomrSoftware, you can expect it to be a challenge for many gamers. Which will undoubtedly miscalculate their security at many points throughout their first game. Along with a launch date, the new trailer also reveals what the gameplay looks like.
There are about three minutes of solid footage. Show off everything from character abilities and weapons to some of the gruesome horrors you’ll face on your adventure.
There is also a bit of dialogue. Although nothing seems to really explain what the story of the game will be. If you’d like to check out the trailer for yourself, you can check it out below.
If you want to pre-order the game, you can do that as well as the pre-orders went live right after the trailer. Pre-orders for Elden Ring are live on Amazon, Walmart, Target GameStop and other retailers.
