Elden Ring

From the minds of Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin (whose novels were adapted into the Game of Thrones series), and from the studio who gave us the cult favourite Souls series, comes Elden Ring, which is described as a dark fantasy action RPG. This game is still very much shrouded in mystery with little details to chew on. What we do know so far is that it will feature new gameplay mechanics in combat and horseback riding, as well as dungeon-like ruins in place of the usual towns populated with NPCs (non-playable characters). Nevermind that, as the heavyweight names alone are enough reason to get on board. In development since 2017 and first announced in 2019, Elden Ring is definitely one of the most anticipated upcoming RPG games for the PC. Will it be released in 2021? Cross your fingers!
