FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment invited a choose few shops to a preview occasion for Elden Ring, following which we’ve realized some extra details about the sport.

For starters, the developer has confirmed that gamers will have the ability to quick journey from wherever and there can be a number of paths and endings. Additionally, Elden Ring has loads of lore and optionally available encounters. According to IGN, gamers will uncover the lore by interacting with “important characters.”

Dark Souls, and maybe to a lesser extent Sekiro, you’d be picking up these pieces that talk about the world and allow the player to formulate an idea of the world itself and their place in it, they didn’t often talk to the characters and the people living in that world,” FromSoftware defined. “With Elden Ring, we have a large number of NPCs and a lot of major players in the story. “Things like that [lore through item text, for example] are going [to come from] talking to those important NPCs and those important characters, and that way we feel the player is going to learn more about the drama, more about the history of the world.”

Speaking of textual content, Elden Ring‘s text is being written by director Hidetaka Miyazaki, not George R.R. Martin, IGN further wrote. As previously revealed, Martin was involved in early development and helped to build the game’s world. But relating to the lore, Miyazaki is “at the forefront of the text, writing the text in the game.”

Elden Ring will launch on January 21, 2022.
