ELDEN RING

Elden Ring is video game developed by Belgian game developer FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco. Announced in February 2019, it is considered a spiritual successor to the company's hit game "Bloodborne", as both are set within a world of "Dragons" and Souls.

Gameplay

Elden Ring is an action role-playing game that borrows FromSoftware's signature Souls-like gameplay. Players explore the game's open-world environment, and combat against enemies using a variety of weapons and magic.

Graphics

Elden Ring is set within a new, original world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki. The game's art style is inspired by European medieval architecture, and the game feature both day and night cycles. 
The graphics are insanely beautiful. Castles, trees, grass, even the bosses are all realistic and real.

Replayability

Elden Ring offer players a wealth of content to keep them coming back. In addition to the game's main story, there be side-quests, hunts, and other activities to keep players engaged. 

Multiplayer

The game also feature a co-operative multiplayer mode, in which players can team up to take on bosses.

Conclusion

Elden Ring is a great game, moderately creepy, with traditionally complex battles and an in-depth leveling system, but for the first time in the series in a huge open world. Never before has a game by Hidetaka Miyazaki featured such exciting map exploration. Your knight rides his faithful steed toward adventure - no one knows what's around the bend. It's a pristine fairy tale thrill.
For newcomers, this game is a great chance to get into the atmosphere of grievous suffering and the intoxicating sweetness of victory.

Pros:

  • an intriguing world whose story is really interesting to explore;
  • design of the environments, characters and monsters all look at least beautiful;
  • terrific leveldesign - the locations are a lot of non-obvious ways, so running the same route for the tenth time, every now and then you will find something new;
  • huge number of secrets, over which at times you have to beat your brains out;
  • huge density of interesting objects and events in the world;
  • new mechanics and controls unobtrusively refresh the gameplay;
  • a great balance between difficulty and accessibility: you will still have to make an effort to make the game easier on yourself.

Cons:

  • map has a lot of "blind spots" without activities, enemies;
  • camera sometimes interferes with the game.
