From Software’s long-awaited Elden Ring Re-appeared today as part of Summer Game Fest 2021.New Gameplay trailer We showed the world where players explore on foot and on horseback. Another gameplay mechanic shown is the classic summon, which helps players attract other players’ friendly blue phantoms to navigate the dangers in front of them.
In a side note, publisher Namco Bandai confirmed that Elden Ring supports four-player co-op play. Players can “… walk or ride a horse and cross grasslands, breathtaking swamps and lush forests alone or online with friends.”
It’s unclear at this time if the game also supports PvP (player vs. player) aggression like past games. Invasion and cooperation have been a staple of past FromSoftware games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, but in the studio’s 2019 title Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, both of these mechanics are single-player only. I avoided it for the experience.
Pending without delay next year
In addition to the new gameplay footage, BANDAI NAMCO and FromSoftware have confirmed the release date of Elden Ring on January 21, 2022. With no delay, fans can enjoy the game in about 7 months.
