Elden Ring Launch Trailer, Overview Trailer and Release Date

FromSoftwares' long awaited collaboration with Game of Thrones Writer, George R.R.Martin, is just around the corner, and with it two new trailers have dropped.

As a huge fan of both Berserk and Dark Souls, I've been looking forward to this one for a long time, and with its release just around the corner, it's an exciting time for gaming right now.

While I'm a bit concerned the trailers are a little too revealing (considering the amount of boss reveals we've had), I have faith there's a lot to still be discovered. That said, you don't have to look too hard to spot some very obvious Berserk references, and this is to be expected, as fans of the Souls community have been aware of Hidetaka Miyazaki's love for the series for a while now.

Kentaro Miura left a legacy behind when he passed, but with a Wolf-like enemy/Armour resembling that of the activated Berserker Armour, and a helmet resembling that of Griffith's at the start of "The Eclipse", I'm sure there's plenty for Berserk fans to discover here, and that's not even mentioning the many nods to previous entries in the Dark/Demon Souls series.

For all intents and purposes, this looks to be the spiritual successor to the Dark Souls series we were all hoping for, and I personally can't wait to jump in with some friends to explore this fresh, new and hugely exciting open world.

Elden Ring is a Souls-like Action RPG, releasing this Friday (25th Feb) on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One/Series S and Series X.
