At long last, the long-awaited gameplay reveal for Elden Ring finally arrived at Summer Game Fest’s kickoff stream, and it looks exactly like the sort of grueling dark fantasy adventure that you’d expect, complete with the style that is so strongly associated with FromSoftware. Information on the game is likely to keep flooding in ahead of its launch early next year, but with it having been confirmed as a cross-gen game, what does that mean for whether or not next-gen upgrades will be supported?

Well, they will be. Publisher Bandai Namco has confirmed that those who purchase Elden Ring on PS4 will have the option to upgrade to the game’s PS5 version at no additional cost. Meanwhile, Smart Delivery will be supported on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S as well, so you’re not going to have to buy the game twice there either.

Elden Ring launches on January 21, 2022 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more details on the game in the meantime.
