The long wait is almost over, as “Elden Ring” recently released a new overview trailer for the game, which will be released at the end of this week. On February 25, players will be able to get their hands on FromSoftware’s next open-world title after long periods of little information and occasional delays.
Since the announcement trailer premiered in 2019, fans have eagerly anticipated “Elden Ring”. However, until this year, there were few specifics about the open-world game because developers had to react to society in the midst of a pandemic. “Elden Ring“, on the other hand, was catapulted to one of the most anticipated games of 2022 after last year’s gameplay showcase, and the buzz hasn’t died down since. Fans will just have to wait a few more days for the title to arrive in their homes.
“Elden Ring’s” last marketing push has begun in preparation for its release, and now includes a new six-minute overview for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC users. There’s a lot in the teaser that fans of FromSoftware’s games will know, but the major focus is on what’s new. Much of the information in the overview will be familiar to those who have followed “Elden Ring’s” development carefully, but it does bring it all together to show how the various mechanics function together.
For anyone who has played Dark Souls or a comparable FromSoftware title, this mix of design elements appears to create a drastically different experience. For one reason, Hidetaka Miyazaki, the game’s director, believes that “Elden Ring” would be less stressful than its predecessors. That isn’t to suggest that FromSoftware has abandoned its infamous difficulty since harsh optional bosses and frustrating poison swamps remain part of the game’s overall design.
While there appears to be a lot that distinguishes “Elden Ring” from games like Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, it’s understandable that it’s still being compared to them. It’s a difficult task to strike the right blend of new and old, but FromSoftware has demonstrated throughout the years that it’s a developer up to the task. Many of the Souls characteristics that “Elden Ring” fans want to see in the open-world game appear to be present, but they look to have been mixed in a way that makes the concept feel fresh. In only a few days, fans will be able to make an informed decision.
