Elden Ring Gameplay and Plot

Bandai Namco’s official website describes the journey of the hero through the Lands Between, a fantastical world of Demigods that clutch onto shards of power of this artefact determines the future of the world that all exists in.

The Official Website of Elden Ring describes the story as:

Rise, Tarnished, and be guided by grace to brandish the power of the Elden Ring and become an Elden Lord in the Lands Between. In the Lands Between ruled by Queen Marika the Eternal, the Elden Ring, the source of the Erdtree, has been shattered. Marika’s offspring, demigods all, claimed the shards of the Elden Ring known as the Great Runes, and the mad taint of their newfound strength triggered a war: The Shattering. A war that meant abandonment by the Greater Will.

And now the guidance of grace will be brought to the Tarnished who were spurned by the grace of gold and exiled from the Lands Between. Ye dead who yet live, your grace long lost, follow the path to the Lands Between beyond the foggy sea to stand before the Elden Ring.

And become the Elden Lord.

As much as the Lands Between seem similar to the Dark Souls franchise, the mounted combat and stealth system of the game stands closer to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. A fast travel system along with magic abilities and enhanced heavy melee combat will be central to the battle element of the game. The game creates an opportunity for enough customization for the player to strategize as per the challenges in the game.

A summoning mechanic will also be present in the game that will allow previously conquered enemies to be summoned into battle as allies. The game will also have a multiplayer version with its own set of options for cooperative play. The game will be available in 14 supported languages including English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and more!

Elden Ring Leaks

Games Anime and More YT channel had posted a 27-second clip of Elden Ring gameplay but had been taken down. However, it made its way on the internet.

One can make out an armored character on a cliffside staring at a glowing tree, leaping over rocks, and alarming a couple of eagles. One can see their feathers once they take off.

The jump looks unnatural which is most likely for gameplay purposes, maybe jump over attacks like in sekiro. Maybe some enemies will have sweeping attacks. The slow descent is probably for certain AOE attacks something like Ornstien and Smough’s lightning rings when they slam the ground.
