After months of teasers, gameplay samples, and other promotional materials, FromSoftware’s Elden Ring has finally arrived, and it has done so in style. The game has gotten rave reviews from critics in the last week, with several of them awarding flawless marks for the developers’ open-world gameplay.
However, it appears that the game has taken off in the commercial sector since its debut since gamers have begun to talk about it after getting their hands on it. And it’s not just the gamers who have flocked to Elden Ring; the game has also taken off on Twitch, the popular streaming platform.
Elden Ring broke the 700,000 concurrent viewer milestone within a day of the game’s debut, according to the streaming platform. Other popular FromSoftware games like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Dark Souls III didn’t even reach the 300,000 mark once.
Even though Elden Ring’s aesthetics and gameplay are identical to Dark Souls III, the newer title has earned a worldwide fanbase, thanks to the buzz generated by gameplay demos, teasers, and the news of cooperating with renowned author George R. R. Martin.
In the end, it appears that FromSoftware has struck gold with Elden Ring, and it appears that they may have created a major Game of the Year nominee for the coming year. This, combined with the game’s commercial success, suggests that the game will be a major player during the awards season later this year.
