Elden Ring, the long-awaited action RPG made in collaboration between FromSoftware and writer George R.R. Martin, has finally shown new signs of life. We got a surprise trailer today at the end of the Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live event as well as a release date. January 21, 2022 is when you’ll be able to play it on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X, and last-gen consoles. Publisher Bandai Namco says the Xbox version of the game will support Smart Delivery, and players who purchase the PS4 version of the game will get a free upgrade to the PS5 version.
The first gameplay from the elusive title that was announced during E3 2019 shows plenty of PvE magic and swordplay while traversing through fantastical environments on horseback. I’m sure we’ll see more gameplay in the near future, but this first look at Elden Ring looks like it should please fans of Bloodborne and Dark Souls.
It seems to be delivering a new take on the studio’s signature action RPG gameplay, nestled into deep, entrancing game design. Congratulations to George R.R. Martin for delivering some new content in this decade — maybe now he can get back to finishing The Winds of Winter.
Though there was a long gap between when this game was announced and when we got this trailer today, we’ll likely hear more from FromSoftware and publisher Bandai Namco as the game’s release date is approaching.

The Summer Game Mess is upon us, and it has somehow gifted fans of developer From Software with another look at that studio’s new game, Elden Ring. This is the result of a collaboration between From director Hidetaka Miyazaki and A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. While Miyazkaki is overseeing the creative direction of the game, Martin helped to build out the world as well as its lore.
And now, From has finally revealed more of the game as part of the Summer Game Fest presentation. Elden Ring is coming to last-gen and current-gen consoles as well as PC on January 21.
In a blog post on Bandai Namco’s website, the game’s director commented on working with Martin.
“Collaborating with George R.R. Martin to create the Elden Ring mythos has been a genuinely delightful experience and a source of wonderful inspiration,” said Miyazaki. “The team is working hard to ensure that the world of Elden Ring will be a fascinating place for players to explore, filled with peril and wonder from its furthest reaches to its lowest depths. This is a From Software title through and through, rich in fantasy and RPG action.”
Martin echoed those sentiments.
“Building the world of Elden Ring with Miyazaki-san and his team was a treat,” said Martin. “The graphics, mythos, and action-RPG gameplay will deliver an unforgettable experience. I can’t wait for people to see what Elden Ring has in store for them.”
If nothing else, fans should feel good that George R.R. Martin finished writing that paragraph.
This is the first new trailer for Elden Ring since the game debuted at Xbox’s 2019 showcase during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
Since then, From fans have waited and begged for news or updates about the game, but the silence out of the studio turned into something of a meme in communities like the /r/eldenring forum on Reddit. This has led to leaked early trailers and false reports of the game popping up at trade shows throughout 2020 and early 2021.
But now those fans have more information, and I’m sure they are certainly feeling satiated and content and we will likely never hear them begging for more ever again. Actually, that is a joke, and From fans know better than anyone that they will spend the next several months waiting for more about the game.
