Greetings, RPG gamers around the world! As an RPG veteran myself, I’ve always wanted to have another taste of FromSoftware’s Soulsborne games, which have been some of the most important and impactful of the last decade. Beginning with the genre-defining Demon’s Souls in 2009, From’s creative takes on game design and atmospheric world-building would go on to spawn Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and, the latest title announced at E3 2019, ELDEN RING.
1. News Updates
Bandai Namco announced that its fantasy action RPG "ELDEN RING", which is being developed by FromSoftware and released by Bandai Namco Entertainment, has exceeded the depth of the game and the development of strategic freedom. Due to that, Bandai Namco Entertainment has decided to extend the development time to make final adjustments. The release of this game will be postponed to February 25, 2022 (originally scheduled for January 21, 2022) to ensure that the best quality of the game is brought to players all over the world.

4. Game Highlights
Highlights of ELDEN RING can be found on the official website of Bandai Namco:
A NEW FANTASY WORLD
Journey through the Lands Between, a new fantasy world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of the influential DARK SOULS video game series, and George R. R. Martin, author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire.
Unravel the mysteries of the ELDEN RING’s power. Encounter adversaries with profound backgrounds, characters with their own unique motivations for helping or hindering your progress, and fearsome creatures.
WORLD EXPLORATION IN THE LANDS BETWEEN
ELDEN RING features vast fantastical landscapes and shadowy, complex dungeons that are connected seamlessly.
Traverse the breathtaking world on foot or on horseback, alone or online with other players, and fully immerse yourself in the grassy plains, suffocating swamps, spiraling mountains, foreboding castles and other sites of grandeur on a scale never seen before in a FromSoftware title.
Create your character in FromSoftware's refined action RPG and define your playstyle by experimenting with a wide variety of weapons, magical abilities, and skills found throughout the world.
Charge into battle, pick off enemies one-by-one using stealth, or even call upon allies for aid. Many options are at your disposal as you decide how to approach exploration and combat.
ELDEN RING first attracted my attention as I was trying to search for E3 trailers of new games to be released in 2019, while playing an idle RPG mobile game called Familiar Warfare. Clicking on the trailer of Elden Ring, I didn’t realize it was the latest game created by Hidetaka Miyazaki. But oh man, all the immersive memories flashed back to me!
Rise, Tarnished! Now that the CLOSED NETWORK TEST is open for registration, what are you waiting for? If you are also a Soulsborne game enthusiast, don’t hesitate to register before it is too late! (Deadline: November 1, 2021)
