FromSoftware’s Elden Ring received its long-awaited gameplay trailer and release date at the recent Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live. For those confused by what they were witnessing, the official site has been updated with new details on the story. Set in The Lands Between ruled by Queen Marika the Eternal, the Elden Ring has been shattered into pieces.

Since this is the source of the Erdtree, various entities – demigods, Marika’s offspring, and so on – have laid claim to the Elden Ring’s shards. Referred to as the Great Runes, these shards would trigger a war called The Shattering. This also led to “abandonment by the Greater Will” which could be a higher power that players will encounter at some point. As the Tarnished, one must stand before the Elden Ring, become the Elden Lord and ideally, put an end to the conflict.

As the “dead who yet live”, it seems that the protagonist will have much in common with Dark Souls’ Undead. Along with learning more about the Elden Ring’s power, players will also come across “characters with their own unique motivations” that can either help or hinder you, overwhelming creatures and “adversaries with profound backgrounds.” Elden Ring is slated to release on January 21st 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
