Elden Ring was one of the most exciting games shown off at Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference. The game is a collaboration between From Software and George RR Martin, but it was only announced on stage for Xbox One and PC. Fortunately, publisher Bandai Namco has now confirmed the game will also launch on PS4.
“Elden Ring is the iconic collaboration between two giants of fantasy, George RR Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki,” the company wrote on Twitter. “Coming to Xbox One, PS4, and digital PC.” The latter part of the quote seems to confirm the game will not receive a physical launch on PC.
The announcement comes as good news for fans who are excited by the pedigree of the teams behind Elden Ring. From Software is best known for developing Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and, most recently, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. George RR Martin, meanwhile, is the author of A Song of Ice and Fire–the books Game of Thrones is based on.
Elden Ring sees you travel throughout a massive open world, exploring multiple kingdoms that are each ruled by a powerful entity. Defeating said rulers gifts you with their power. The pre-rendered trailer shown at E3 doesn’t reveal much else–other than the fact there are lots of arms–but it establishes the game’s bleak and mysterious tone, which is essential to any From Software game.
The game is the first of two unannounced titles From Software has been working on for the past few years. The second game remains a mystery. For more on the biggest gaming showcase of the year, check out the full E3 2019 press conference schedule.
