Elden Ring is one of the most anticipated games of 2022. Some already consider the game to be an absolute masterpiece, and we have to admit that it could reinvent the Open-World genre we hear so much about. talk in recent years.

If you don’t know, it’s time to get out of your cave. In any case, Elden Ring, slated for next year, is clearly one of the most anticipated games. A few have been able to test the preview, and the least we can say is that it clearly makes you want. Created by the team of FromSoftware, the little brother of Dark Souls has a great future in the world of video games. The title could well be a real revolution for a gameplay mechanic that we hear a lot about lately: the Open-World. But is it really possible? Overview of the reasons that lead us to believe thatElden Ring could indeed be a revolution.

AlthoughElden Ring be different from Souls, compare the two games is not nonsense. Indeed, as we explained to you in our preview of the game, Elden Ring uses a lot of Dark Souls mechanics, whether in terms of movement, combat or the menu interface. However, the new game from FromSoftware offers greater freedom of action. Although the tutorial part may suggest the opposite, the studio actually offers us a real Open-World that we take pleasure in discovering and making our own. When we talk about Open-World, we necessarily think of Breath of the Wild, released in 2017 and whose little brother is also expected in 2022.

So a simple wooded lane is not just a crossing point, but an interesting place to learn the art of stealth combat. Much like a random gathering of worshipers in a swamp isn’t just a chance for the player to take down a group of enemies, but the trigger for a surprise fight against a man-eating dragon. So unless the preview is a compendium of everything interesting in the game, Elden Ring really promises to be just huge. And must also ask a titanic to the team of developers. Indeed, beyond all the possibilities offered, the attention to detail implemented by the team of FromSoftware to bring such an ambitious project to life is simply gigantic.

And that’s why the game could well be a real revolution of the Open-World. Since in the end, until now, even in the most developed Open-Worlds, players were still guided a lot through a system of quests, meetings, etc. In Elden Ring it is totally the reverse. You may as well decide to follow the quests as simply to explore the landscapes created. You will also be able to cross paths with random bosses, as if you really are in a wild and ruthless world. And isn’t that the kind of experience you expect from a real Open-World? As a reminder, the game will be available on February 25, 2022 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
