Elden Ring is an upcoming action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment.

The game, directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, was made in collaboration with fantasy novelist George R. R. Martin, who provided material for the game's setting.

Elden Ring is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on February 25, 2022.

Elden Ring takes place in the realm of the Lands Between,  sometime after the destruction of the titular Elden Ring and the  scattering of its shards, the Great Runes.

Once graced by the Ring and the Erdtree which symbolizes its presence,  the realm is now ruled over by the demigod offspring of Queen Marika the  Eternal, each possessing a shard of the Ring that corrupts and taints  them with power.

As a Tarnished—exiles from the Lands Between who lost the Ring's grace—summoned back after the Shattering,

players must traverse the realm to ultimately find all the Great Runes, restore the Elden Ring, and become the Elden Lord.
