Go ahead and do a double jump
There’s not much time left before Ring of Elden is outside. From Software’s dark fantasy action game heads into another world full of ruin, magic, and danger. And some new mini-dungeon gameplay footage from Ring of Elden shown today helps you get an idea of the dangers that could appear in the open world around you.
A new batch of information was released today, as part of Game Informer’s big cover revealed. Part of it includes new exclusives Ring of Elden gameplay footage exploring Castle Morne, a location classified as a “mini-dungeon”. The full game will have many mini-dungeons to explore; these caves and other areas exist in the world alongside larger dungeon areas like Stormveil Castle.
In Game Informer footage, they head for the castle after dodging absolutely massive harpoon-shaped arrows from a very angry giant. We see double jump and horseback combat in action, and a graveyard of diseased swords in the distance, before the player heads towards the castle.
From there, it looks like Castle Morne had a generally tough time. From giant monsters to scary jellyfish, Le Morne has been overrun. And it ends with a brief encounter with a fierce boss.
The dark fantasy atmosphere certainly seems to come together for Ring of Elden. And while the mini-dungeon was cool, I was just as interested in the prep. The open world feels mysterious, dangerous, and oddly inviting to explore. And the first arrow whizzing above the player’s sight is a big jolt of surprise.
Suffice it to say, Ring of Elden is definitely one of the most anticipated games of this year. And it’s not far either. Ring of Elden will bring its fantasy world to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on February 25, 2022.
