FromSoftware's Elden Ring Game Delayed to February 25

FromSoftware announced on Monday that it and Bandai Namco Entertainment‘s Elden Ring action RPG for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam has been delayed from January 21, 2022 to February 25, 2022. The company also revealed that the game will have a Closed Network Test on November 12-14. The game will be playable on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S for select people for blocks of time during that period. The company streamed a trailer:

In the Closed Network Test, PS4 players can interact with PS5 players, and Xbox One players can interact with Xbox Series X|S players.

Bandai Namco Entertainment describes the game:

The Golden Order has been broken.

Rise, Tarnished, and be guided by grace to brandish the power of the Elden Ring and become an Elden Lord in the Lands Between.

In the Lands Between ruled by Queen Marika the Eternal, the Elden Ring, the source of the Erdtree, has been shattered.

Marika’s offspring, demigods all, claimed the shards of the Elden Ring known as the Great Runes, and the mad taint of their newfound strength triggered a war: The Shattering. A war that meant abandonment by the Greater Will.

And now the guidance of grace will be brought to the Tarnished who were spurned by the grace of gold and exiled from the Lands Between. Ye dead who yet live, your grace long lost, follow the path to the Lands Between beyond the foggy sea to stand before the Elden Ring.

And become the Elden Lord.

Hidetaka Miyazaki (Dark Souls, Dark Souls III, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice) and author George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) collaborated in creating the game’s world.

FromSoftware most recently released its Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice game in 2019.
