What is Elden Ring?
Elden Ring is an action RPG that represents the fusion of fandoms. On the other hand, you have From Software’s Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of the particular brooding games mentioned above. On the other hand, you have George RR Martin, who brought you Game of Thrones, helping build the story.
As for the game itself, it’s an action RPG that looks like it won’t be far from the popular gameplay in the Dark Souls series. You can expect super-accurate combat controls and towering bosses to be taken down. These games are certainly challenging, but if you keep trying, you’ll likely learn your enemy’s moves and improve your skills enough to succeed.
What about the story? From Software’s games have never been around much with their stories, even within the game itself. Bandai Namco has released a Elden Ring Plot Summary, but it doesn’t help much either. As far as I can tell, a bunch of demigods each have a piece of the powerful Elden Ring. Your job is to remove them from these pieces to put the ring back together.
