At the beginning of next year, we will witness the premiere of the biggest game in the history of From Software. Developers informed that work on the Elden Ring is progressing quite dynamically and there are many indications that the planned debut will not change. One of the studio representatives summed up the information about the game.
The Elden Ring promotional campaign has not started yet. So far, Bandai Namco has released one trailer for the game , while several editorial offices have shared their insights after watching the 16-minute gameplay . There is no doubt, however, that from the very first announcements, From Software’s production aroused considerable emotions among players who are fans of the soulslike genre and is one of the most anticipated titles in 2022.
At Tokyo Game Show 2021, we did not see any new video materials from Elden Ring – the authors only showed graphics that heralds the game in cooperation .
The studio probably wastes no time, as work on the Elden Ring is in its culmination stage. During a short interview for the editorial staff of Famitsu, Yasuhiro Kitao from From Software revealed some information about the position and confirmed the important news: “We are in the final stage of development and we’re moving forward quietly”.
“We released the video and release date in June 2021, after two years of no new information since we released the video at E3 2019. I thought it would be forgotten until then, but there were many people waiting for it, and I want to say thank you again to them. We will continue to develop the game to meet your expectations, so please look forward to it.”
The developer was asked what the latest project of the studio stands for and emphasized:
“It’s a culmination of FromSoftware’s expertise in dark fantasy action. You can enjoy the high level of difficulty and the sense of accomplishment of overcoming it, the joy of discovering the unknown, and the creation of the world setting.”
At the same time, we learned that there will be small and medium-sized dungeons in the open that can be explored. There are several types of dungeons to explore, such as the catacombs and the auditorium, and players will also come across the so-called “Legacy dungeons”, or huge castle dungeons that can be associated with the studio’s earlier productions. Horses will help you navigate the vast world, but the author emphasizes that the level of difficulty will be quite high – all in order to make the recipients feel fulfilled and satisfied.
From Software has not announced the end of work on the title yet, but we should hear some good news soon – the title is expected to hit the market in January. We can therefore suspect that the Elden Ring will not be delayed.
