After months of speculation and radio silence that had fans worry about potential delays, From Software finally offered up a meaty update on Elden Ring at E3 2021. A gameplay trailer confirmed what leaks pointed to: Elden Ring is looking like it'll adhere closely to the Souls format From pioneered, while significantly expanding the size of the game world.

While the game's scale is significantly beyond what we've seen in earlier Souls titles, the visuals are an iterative improvement. The Demon's Souls remake on PlayStation 5 is a significant step ahead. This makes sense, considering that Elden Ring is set to be a cross-gen title: PlayStation 4 and Xbox One S owners will get a chance to experience the action. 

While the gameplay trailer was heavily scripted, we got a chance to see what Elden Ring looks like on a moment-to-moment basis. The dodge-rolling and slow movement bring Dark Souls to mind more than Sekiro or Bloodborne. We did notice acrobatics and finishers which indicate that combat might be a bit more dynamic. 

Elden Ring is slated to release in January 2022. Barring further delays, this means we'll get our hands on From's next opus in six months.
