The protagonist will be a dead man who still lives, an element that seems to be an ideal point in common with Dark Souls. In addition to learning about further aspects of theElden Ring, the player will also meet a certain number of characters, each driven by their own motivations, who can turn out to be both allies and enemies. Obviously there will also be monstrous creatures and opponents characterized by a deep background.

We remind you that the game is scheduled for Xbox Series X / S, PS4, PS5, PC and Xbox One, with a release date set for January 21, 2022.
