Elden Ring Gameplay Shows 19 Minutes Of New Footage (VIDEO)
Following a pretty sizeable silence from Bandai Namco and FromSoftware, word about the stunning Dark Souls-esque Elden Ring has been stacking up tall as of late with the game finally being awarded a release date, its first gameplay, and an inaugural network test set to roll out next week. In the meantime, it looks like the hits will simply keep coming upon the reveal of an extended bout of all-new gameplay.
Spanning just a bit over 19 minutes, the new look at Elden Ring shows quite a bit of the title’s immense and detailed open world. The duration highlights the game’s epic fantasy realm featuring dramatically scaled environments, explorable castle ruins, and, as one might expect, oodles of enemies lurking in every conceivable corner. If that wasn’t enough, a peek at multiplayer and several boss battles were also on display, including a rather bizarre enemy with the power to transform one of its limbs into a fire-breathing dragon. Check out the madness below.
Though this Elden Ring gameplay featured an undeniable presence of action, a fair amount of smaller details can also be gleaned in between all the sword and sorcery. We got an initial dive into the game’s map, which, likely due to its sheer size, comes with the ability to set beacons and other markers to better navigate the terrain. Adding to that idea, players will apparently be able to leap very high into the air at various points of the map – even while riding a horse – an ability that may just come in handy for the more dicey enemy encounters.
As this gameplay only offered “a brief introduction to fundamentals,” the end of the footage suggests even more Elden Ring footage is currently being prepared, but only at “a later date” for the time being. With only a few months remaining before release, the wait for more gameplay isn’t likely far away, especially as multiplayer enters an imminent public test phase and more details pile up regarding the greatly-awaited title.
Elden ring releases February 25th, 2022 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
