Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro creator Hidetaka Miyazaki is back with a brand new, dark fantasy world, this time created in collaboration with Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin: Elden Ring. Developer From Software revealed the new title in a cinematic trailer during Microsoft's E3 2019 presentation. This was just the initial reveal, so official details about the game itself and when we might get our hands on it are still scarce. Publisher Bandai Namco has confirmed, however, that the game will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and you can pre-order it for consoles right now.

Typical for the first reveal of any new From Software game, the trailer was mostly cryptic, creepy nonsense. The eponymous Elden Ring "commanded the stars" and "gave life its fullest brilliance," but was shattered by "someone or something." The trailer is punctuated by someone forging (or perhaps un-forging) something we can't see, stony cracks radiating across their back from the effort. Any allusion to forging rings of power obviously evokes Tolkien, and the whole thing generally has a dark, mythic fantasy feeling that's very much in line with the Dark Souls series. Pre-E3 leaks suggested that the game will have an open-world format in which the player journeys through various kingdoms, slaying their rulers to take on their unique powers.

If you're ready to pre-order Elden Ring, you've come to the right place. We've gathered all the information you need to decide which version of the game to get and where to get it to find the deal that's right for you. As more retailers list their options, we'll update all the details here.
