FromSoftware’s Marketing and Communications Manager Yasuhiro Kitao in a recent interview with the magazine Famitsu shared crumbs of new information on the hotly anticipated action RPG Elden Ring.
Recall that last June Elden Ring received the first gameplay trailer and release date. It’s been four months since that demo, and in the absence of new presentations, fans worried about a possible rescheduling.
Elden Ring development is progressing well, Kitao said. However, production is in its final stages, which is likely to reduce the risk of delayed release in the near future.
By the way, shortly after the publication of Famitsu on the forum Reddit the user yesdog96, who introduced himself as the manager of GameStop, showed up and announced the receipt of advertising materials on Elden Ring in the retail network.
At the same time yesdog96 notesthat the beginning of the marketing of Elden Ring at GameStop was an initiative of Bandai Namco Entertainment itself, but he did not hear anything about a possible start date for pre-orders or the announcement of collectible editions of the game.
In addition, Kitao mentioned that Elden Ring had no give-and-bring quests, and thanked fans for patiently waiting for the news during the two-year radio silence from the developers.
The release of Elden Ring is scheduled for January 21, 2022 for PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. As part of gamescom 2021, selected portals were shown a 16-minute demo of the project, which has not yet been published on the Web.
