Role-Playing Game fans have been awaiting news on From Software’s next big game Elden Ring, and we now have fresh info from the upcoming action-RPG! Elden Ring gameplay info has surfaced, and it confirms multiple endings, combat, fast travel to anywhere, and more! There’s also a bunh of new Elden Ring screenshots to chew on, too!
As highlighted in several previews, From Software’s bold and new dark fantasy project will be similar to the Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls game — where players will take control of a warrior who explores a fictional world full of danger and lore. Here’s a description of the plot from the official wiki page of the game.
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 offsprings 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
Here’s the highlights and summary of several features the game will have as listed by Nibel.

According to Yasuhiro Kitao, Elden Ring won’t simply be an open-world game but something grander and full of exploration and divergent paths — with a fast travel system that will allow players to cover more ground in the Lands Between. The combat system will have stealth mechanics similar to Sekiro as well as introducing new mechanics such as a Guard Counter to hit back against enemies after they attack you. There will be choices that will affect one’s playthrough of the game where multiple endings are present, and to say every adventure is unique is an understatement in itself.
