You can play co-op with your friends in Elden Ring
If you and your friends have been looking forward to Elden Ring, then rejoice as it looks like you will be able to enjoy the game together through cooperative gameplay.
Crowds of fans finally got their wish yesterday when Elden Ring received an official gameplay trailer at Summer Game Party 2021. The trailer had a lot to show, but it turns out Bandai Namco had even more to share. Today (or yesterday after the game trailer was revealed), the game’s landing page went live.
There are all kinds of juicy treats about Elden Ring. Something to make you salivate. And the co-op gameplay is just one detail that’s sure to kindle a fire for fans waiting to jump into the world of Elden Ring.
Elden Ring will support co-op play and online play
It’s not entirely clear how cooperative or online play will work in Elden Ring. But it will be there. The game’s landing page specifically states that players will be able to travel the world and explore its many secrets and wonders “on foot or on horseback” and “alone or online”.
This confirms that Elden Ring will follow in the footsteps of previous Dark Souls games which also incorporated online gaming features. Given this, it’s possible that Elden Ring’s online gameplay was similar or identical to the Souls titles that featured it. Which means you might not be able to connect with friends and travel the world together like you would say, Borderlands 3.
But it is not excluded that it could be different too. Either way, players are sure to be excited about getting co-op features, if Elden Ring Co-op takes on this more traditional role.
Fan enthusiasm for Elden Ring is high
Co-op gameplay aside, it’s no surprise the level of excitement fans have displayed over the past 24 hours. Elden Ring was first announced at E3 2019 and there has been literally nothing about it since then. Until the reveal of yesterday’s trailer.
So fans are understandably thrilled with every new detail, not to mention a gameplay trailer and an official release date. The only downside is that the reveal of the trailer makes you realize a sad fact.
That fans will likely have a chance to find out about Elden Ring’s story before Song of Ice and Fire fans read the last book in the series. What George RR Martin has been writing for probably almost a decade.
