Elden Ring is set to debut on February 25th as the latest action RPG from publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment. The upcoming title is expected to feature familiar combat and elements like its predecessors – the souls series and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The Elden Ring release schedule has been revealed for players on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. The developer also revealed when players can preload Elden Ring on PC and consoles.
Developer FromSoftware revealed via a tweet that PC gamers will be able to start playing Elden Ring on February 25 at 4:30am IST / February 24 at 11pm GMT. In the meantime, the game will unlock for console players at midnight on February 25th. This means that players in India will be able to jump into the game on Xbox and PlayStation consoles a little earlier in India at 12:00 (midnight) on February 25, according to the developer.
The tweet reveals that Elden Ring will be available for pre-load on PC and PS5 48 hours before each region launch. Meanwhile, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X players can pre-load the game right away, according to FromSoftware. The minimum and recommended PC specs for Elden Ring were revealed by developer FromSoftware last week.
Set in the realm of the Midlands, Elden Ring will send players on a quest to locate the Great Runes to restore the Elden Ring, which will make them an Elden Lord. Players will also be able to participate in cooperative play by summoning each other. Elden Ring has a linear opening, but as is the case with all open-world sandbox titles, players will be able to freely explore the Midlands as they progress through the game, as they travel through six main areas through a central hub similar to Firelink Sanctuary from Dark Souls. The game is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, in collaboration with Game of Thrones author George RR Martin, who has contributed material to the game’s mythos.
The game is available for pre-order and prices start at Rs. 2,499 for PC players — Rs. 2,999 for the Deluxe version on Steam — and R$ 3,999 for the console version on Xbox and PlayStation Store.
