Initially announced at E3 2019, Elden Ring saw a lack of new details and updates until the recent Summer Games Showcase. Along with the first official gameplay footage, the release date was announced and current-gen platforms added to the line-up. Many new details have been revealed ever since including the inclusion of fast travel, crafting, platforming and much more.
Such a delay isn’t completely unexpected. Despite stating that it’s in the final stages of development, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected development across the world, resulting in numerous big games being delayed. Elden Ring is currently slated to release for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5 and PC so stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

ELDEN RING will release on Feb 25, 2022, as the depth & strategic freedom of the game exceeded initial expectations. Thank you for your trust & patience. We look forward to seeing you experience the game in the Closed Network Test in Nov.
