ELDEN RING TRAILER! JUNARY 21 2022 & INFO Official Discussion

It's FINALLY HERE - Releasing January 21 2022

Official Trailer Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6pCyV7PnqI

Official Website Info: https://en.bandainamcoent.eu/elden-ring/elden-ring

Info and more sources coming soon!

The Golden Order has been broken.

Rise, Tarnished, and be guided by grace to brandish the power of the Elden Ring and become an Elden Lord in the Lands Between.

In the Lands Between ruled by Queen Marika the Eternal, the Elden Ring, the source of the Erdtree, has been shattered.

Marika's offspring, demigods all, claimed the shards of the Elden Ring known as the Great Runes, and the mad taint of their newfound strength triggered a war: The Shattering. A war that meant abandonment by the Greater Will.

And now the guidance of grace will be brought to the Tarnished who were spurned by the grace of gold and exiled from the Lands Between. Ye dead who yet live, your grace long lost, follow the path to the Lands Between beyond the foggy sea to stand before the Elden Ring.

And become the Elden Lord.

Dark Souls 2 2 looks so amazing guys. I’m so pumped.

For real haha. Visually it is very reminiscent of DS2 in certain scenes. Not complaining though

This is actually way more accurate than saying Dark Souls 4

Yeah I've gotta say I'm pretty whelmed, the GRRM promotion made it feel like this might be a more story driven Dark Souls type game, but this trailer didn't do much to separate it from Dark Souls.

I think we haven’t seen much of the game yet. It is supposedly open world, we have no idea how that is going to actually shape up. Soulsborne combat is unsurpassed, so I have no issue with reuse. I can’t get past the feeling that they should have done Bloodborne 2. BB is the best game FROM has made. But, if in the end, we are just getting Dark Souls 4 I’m a happy guy.

They actually said GRRM helped with the worldbuildinh and lore. Pretty sure that was mostly referring to the family of gods/lords now

I thought Elden Ring was going to be some big next gen game, I watch this trailer and I was like "O!!? It's another Darks Souls."

It looks so much like all the the other Dark Souls game.

Aesthetically, sure. The player doing back flips and shit screams Sekiro. Did we see the player with a shield? I distinctly remember one shot of a player blocking with their sword. It felt way more Sekiro but with the themes of Dark Souls.

Yea there are scenes where the PC is holding a shield but no footage of it being used.

The website makes it sound like completely open world Dark Souls with dungeons. I see no issues here
