Elden Ring looks like another classic by FromSoftware, featuring some of that meaty Souls combat with a beautiful open-world that will hopefully run well on a PS4 and Xbox One, though we’re sure it’ll be fine on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
There was a lot to enjoy about the gameplay trailer, like the beautiful combat, some of the sick monster designs, and a number of other things fans will be theorizing for months on end until Elden Ring is released.
Will Elden Ring Have Bonfires?
One particular visual that caught the eyes of many a FromSoftware fan was when the main character was relaxing in a fireplace, seemingly teasing that Elden Ring will have a Bonfire system similar to Dark Souls.
To be fair, we wouldn’t put it past FromSoftware if they ended up implementing a similar save system to the Bonfire like they’ve done with Bloodborne but we’ll have to wait and see.
While FromSoftware makes some quality games, they haven’t really strayed too far from the Dark Souls formula aside from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which actually does a couple of unique things from the Souls-likes.
Personally, some of us would like it if they made games like 3D Dot Game Heroes or Armored Core again but we can’t deny that a winning formula works so if they can make each of their Souls-like games feel a little different each time it’s fine.
Elden Ring will be coming to the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on January 21, 2022, hopefully with no delays.
