One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. Ooops, sorry, get my rings mixed up. But here is a game that needs no introduction at all. Patience has been wavering at times, but the wait is finally over. Rise, Tarnished: Elden Ring is out now on Xbox, PlayStation and PC.
From FromSoftware, the makers of Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and precursor to all those hard copycat Souls-like games comes Elden Ring. The new fantasy action RPG borne into this world from the brains of Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin.
Your mission is simple: gain the power of the Elden Ring and become an Elden Lord. How you go about this though is up to you. Create your character, choose your starting class and make your mark on this gorgeous open-world environment.
If you have been living under a rock for the past few years though, here is the recently released overview trailer to give you a taste of Elden Ring:
In true FromSoftware style though don’t expect Elden Ring to hold your hand. Once you are unleashed on this world it is yours to shape. Choose your path, weapons and armour and head for the horizon. There will be enemies aplenty trying to stop you, along with some of the toughest bosses yet encountered from the Japanese studio.
There are a couple of options for how you wish to purchase Elden Ring. Available on the Xbox Store now is the Elden Ring standard edition priced at £49.99. There is also the Deluxe Edition priced at £64.99. This comes with the Digital Artbook and Soundtrack to enjoy at your leisure.
