Elden Ring will be released in less than a month, and the game’s designer, Hidetaka Miyazaki, is making the rounds to keep the excitement going. While most of what Miyazaki says in new interviews has previously been reported in some form or another, he does confirm that Elden Ring will receive the standard From Software New Game+ mode in a new PlayStation Blog piece. Producer Yasuhiro Kitao gave a bit more information regarding the New Game+ mode during a Taipei Game Show presentation.
After you’ve completed the game the first time, you can import your character data and play it again against more powerful adversaries. This has always been one of our games’ features… In reality, because the world is so large, the game is meant to be completed without having to experience everything. Some players will opt to try to explore the entire map the first time they play, while others will save some places for later cycles.
In other Elden Ring news, Game Informer has published fresh footage from Castle Mourne, one of the game’s “mini-dungeons” (that frankly looks almost as big and complex as some full levels from past From Software titles). Take a look at the video below.
Have you been following Elden Ring’s adventures? Here’s a basic synopsis of the story, which was co-written by George R. R. Martin…
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 Eritrea, has been shattered. Marika’s offspring, demigods all, claimed the shards of the 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 God 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.
On February 25, 2022, Elden Ring will put players through their paces on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and PS5.
