FromSoftware and George R.R. Martin's Elden Ring has been made official at E3 2019 with the release of its first official trailer. After weeks of speculation and some major leaks a few days ago, the game was finally revealed during Microsoft's press conference earlier this evening. Many knew this was coming ahead of time, but it was quite the sight to behold nonetheless.

The trailer is fully cinematic but does a fantastic job setting the stage for this new world imagined by A Song of Ice and Fire author Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki, who is known for many finely-crafted games ranging from the Dark Souls franchise to the more recent Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. No gameplay or release date have been revealed just yet, but we still feel optimistic that we might see this title debut sometime within the next year, if past releases are any indication.

In case you missed the action RPG's official description and artwork from our earlier coverage, we have included it again for you below.

ELDEN RING, developed by FromSoftware, Inc. and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc., is a fantasy action-RPG adventure set within a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki – creator of the influential DARK SOULS video game series; and George R.R. Martin – author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date.

Few specifics are known about the game just yet, other than the visuals we have seen in the trailer, but earlier reports indicated that the in-development title would be open world in nature and include various kingdoms you can travel between by way of horseback, with its ultimate progression rooted in taking down the leaders of those lands to obtain their abilities and use them to bring down the others.

Elden Ring does not yet have a release date, but it will likely hit stores sometime in 2020 and be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Be sure to follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest on this title as well as horror gaming as a whole.
