From Software has revealed that Elden Ring will not deviate from tradition and the game will include online multiplayer.
Elden Ring was finally re-revealed at the end of the Summer Game Fest last night, giving us a further look at some of the gameplay as well as a release date. Today, publisher Bandai Namco has released even more information regarding From Software’s latest title, including the news that you will be able to explore the seamless open-world with friends.
Fans of From Software will know that online multiplayer in both Dark Souls and Bloodborne isn’t your standard affair, opting for a unique summoning system that has been included in pretty much every title in the Soulsborne franchise. Whether Elden Ring will adopt a similar summoning system as well is still unknown, but what we do know is that when Elden Ring launches in January next year, you’ll be able to experience it with a pal.
Bandai Namco also revealed a few more gameplay features on the Elden Ring website, including a day/night cycle and dynamic weather. Elden Ring promises to be From Software’s “largest game to date”, allowing players to use a horse to navigate the game’s massive open-world. The game will feature numerous different locations from castles and mountainous areas, to dark swamps. Just like with From Software’s previous titles (apart from Sekiro), you’ll also be able to create your own character, whether that be a handsome hero or an absolute abomination.
People who don’t yet have a fancy next-gen console will also be pleased to know that you if you do end up buying Elden Ring on either PS4 or Xbox One, you will be able to upgrade the game to the PS5 and Xbox Series X version for free once you finally do get your hands on one.
Elden Ring is set to launch on January 21st next year and will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
