Is Elden Ring A Dark Souls Sequel?

After many years of waiting, the end of Summer Game Fest 2021 not only gave us the first Elden Ring gameplay trailer but its release date as well, which is more than we expected.


Elden Ring managed to get a lot of people talking due to how it incorporates some of that classic ‘Souls’ gameplay into an open-world and you can’t hate a game that lets you summon a ghost horse.

Is Elden Ring A Dark Souls Sequel?

Of course, due to all the Souls talk in Elden Ring, many fans are wondering if this game will be in the same continuity as the Dark Souls games.

Plenty of games made by FromSoftware tend to get this question but Elden Ring managed to crank that talk to oblivion due to some of the similarities.

Currently, there has been no confirmation about Elden Ring being part of the Dark Souls universe and will likely be a standalone game like Bloodborne or Sekiro.

While it would be cool if Elden Ring were a part of the Dark Souls universe, expanding the lore of this franchise’s world, nothing has been confirmed by FromSoftware.

Given the history of this developer, we doubt that any of their games will be connected to Dark Souls unless it’s a direct sequel like Dark Souls 2 and Dark Souls 3 were, though you’ll never know.

Still, regardless if you’re into Dark Souls or not, Elden Ring looks like something special and we can’t wait to get our hands on this game next year.

Elden Ring is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on January 21, 2022.
