Even though the game itself was fully revealed earlier this summer, the Steam page for FromSoftware's highly-anticipated action game, Elden Ring, finally went live today. As a whole, the page is largely what you would expect and features a number of screenshots from the game in addition to the gameplay trailer that was unveiled a couple of months back. And while much of this wouldn't be anything to write home about, some new descriptions of Elden Ring have also appeared on Steam and give us a better idea of what to expect from the title.
In total, this Steam page for Elden Ring explains more about three major components of the game -- the open world, character customization, and online play. New descriptions of how each aspect of the title will function were provided by FromSoftware to shed more light on the experience. Perhaps the most notable of these descriptions comes in regard to online play, which is said to allow players to travel seamlessly across the world of Elden Ring with one another.
Other than these components, some mentions of the story that will be found in Elden Ring were also brought up. Unfortunately, greater hints at the lore and world that are found here weren't given, with the narrative purely being hyped up as one that is an "epic drama."
In case you weren't already counting down the days, Elden Ring is poised to launch early next year on January 20, 2022. It will also be coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X in addition to PC.
