Have a taste of Elden Ring gameplay
Bandai Namco has released 15 minutes of Elden Ring gameplay from the PC version, warning that it is not representative of the final quality. That doesn't stop it from looking pretty amazing.
Elden Ring is the spiritual sequel to Dark Souls, and FromSoftware has expanded the series' trademark combat and exploration to an open world, introducing a new riding and mounted combat system. The video opens showing some exploration before getting into some combat.
- Shows the fundamentals of the game, from combat to weird humour
- Combines indoor and outdoor spaces
- Expect grand boss battles, as usual
- Elden Ring is scheduled to launch on February 25 next year
Hot tease: The first big battle showcase starts when a dragon swoops in and assaults the player. The player fights back with a combination of ranged and melee attacks, both on and off horseback.
Familiar: The video demonstrates a wide range of gameplay, from exploration and big battles to stealth takedowns and spirit summoning. The combat appears more refined than before while the expansive, highly vertical environments resemble Sekiro.
