Elden Ring is a fantasy action-RPG adventure played from a third-person perspective and is set within a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of the Dark Souls video games, and fantasy novelist George R. R. Martin.
The game takes place in the realm of the Lands Between, sometime after the destruction of the 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 Tarnished - exiles from the Lands Between who lost the Ring's grace and are 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.
Elden Ring is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. Take a look at our guide to get help in the game.
