At long last, we finally have a gameplay trailer for Elden Ring. After being quiet about the game for two years, publisher Bandai Namco and developer FromSoftware released a new Elden Ring video as part of the . The trailer caps everything off with another surprise: Elden Ring will launch on January 21. Yes, Elden Ring is coming sooner than just about any of us expected.
The trailer featured much more acrobatic combat than we’re used to in the Souls series or Bloodborne, with characters leaping up into the air and slamming down their swords to deal massive damage. There will be a mix of sword, magic, and gadgets as we saw in Sekiro, but the huge bosses seem to harken more to From’s earlier games than the duel-like bosses in its latest title. One boss appeared to be made up of multiple corpses, which is a FromSoftware trope that seems to make its way into nearly every game the studio touches.
There will also be mounted combat, which we haven’t seen from the studio’s other games, and FromSoftware previously said it will have a more open structure than its past games–but the walking pots and other grotesque beings make it very clear this is still From at heart.
