About Elden Ring
Rise, Tarnished, and be guided by grace to brandish the power of the Elden Ring and become an Elden Lord in the Lands Between. In the Lands Between ruled by Queen Marika the Eternal, the Elden Ring, the source of the Erdtree, has been shattered.
Marika's offspring, demigods all, claimed the shards of the Elden Ring known as the Great Runes, and the mad taint of their newfound strength triggered a war: The Shattering. A war that meant abandonment by the Greater Will. And now the guidance of grace will be brought to the Tarnished who were spurned by the grace of gold and exiled from the Lands Between. Ye dead who yet live, your grace long lost, follow the path to the Lands Between beyond the foggy sea to stand before the Elden Ring.
GENRE-DEFINING GAMEPLAY - Create your character in FromSoftware's refined action-RPG and define your playstyle by experimenting with a wide variety of weapons, magical abilities, and skills found throughout the world. Charge into battle, pick off enemies one-by-one using stealth, or even call upon allies for aid. Many options are at your disposal as you decide how to approach exploration and combat.
The Golden Order has been shattered. Throughout the Lands Between, Demigods holding shards of the Elden Ring squabble and make war over the ruins of a perfect realm, now abandoned by the golden guidance of the Greater Will..
As the echoes of this conflict thunder in the distance, an outcast arrives. Once, their ancestors called the Lands Between home, but the blessed light of grace was lost to their tribe long ago and they were expelled from the kingdom. They are the Tarnished, and they have returned to claim the Elden Lordship promised to them by legend.
This is the world of ELDEN RING. As a Tarnished, the Lands Between await your exploration. You will ride through the vast fields, gallop over rolling hills, and leap to the top of rocky crags on your ephemeral steed, revealing a world teeming with life and danger.
In the grand fields where your journey begins, mythic creatures prowl the veldts, ineffable horrors lurk in the bogs and marshes, and all manner of soldiers and itinerant warriors are waiting for those who wander unawares. Shy creatures nibble on sweet grasses or scuttle through the underbrush.
Those few inhabitants who are not mad or hostile linger near the broken remnants of cities left behind by the Shattering. They may have answers for you, if you help them. Above them all, ensconced in vast legacies bristling with traps, secrets, and guardians, the Demigods – warped Lords who began as members of a royal and noble family – rule their domains with the unyielding power granted by shards of the Elden Ring.
The guidance of lost graces – should you find them - will put you on a road to re-take these lands from the Demigods through might and magic, but you need not follow their path. The choice is yours. Do you crave power, or do you seek understanding? Decide for yourself, then build your character as you see fit.
Try dozens of skills and find one to best suit your style. Practice stealth to avoid danger or catch enemies unaware. Use the environment, the weather, and the time of day to gain an advantage. Learn the art of combat , where you must read your enemy’s intentions and a well-timed dodge or parry could be the difference between life and death. Ride your steed into battle against mounted mercenaries and cut them from their horses.
Master arcane spells from the masters that still linger among the ruins of the war. Summon familiar spirits to even the odds against you or call on your fellow Tarnished to fight at your side and share the burden as you explore. Or, delve into the complex, bloody history of the Shattering and discover the lost secrets of the Demigods and their kin. All these paths are possible, and more.
Ultimately, your journey will be defined by the strength of your own ambition. The greater your goals, the greater the challenge will be. Should you choose to claim the Lands Between as your birthright then yes, you must fight. And yes, you may die. But you will return to fight again. For that is how a champion – or a Lord – is born.
I've never been a real fan of the Dark/Demon Soul games on the preface that I could never really "git gud". I felt trapped whenever I couldn't beat a boss and dying over and over with a tedious track back to the boss only to die before even returning was a huge turn off. Elden Ring has turned my opinion around a clear 180; the game does everything so much better for players like me than FromSoftware's previous games. If you feel like you're slamming your head against a wall against any certain boss, just leave, explore and level up and then try again. You are never stuck in this game, not truly, and its the open-world we find ourselves in that truly solves this problem. It's still difficult, don't think it isn't, but its a more accessible soulslike than any other, and I am so happy I gave it a go.

Great game and code works!
I was so apprehensive about buying Elden Ring but I've sank 70 something hours into it already, and I feel like I barely scratched the surface of this game. Challenging but what souls-game isn't? I hope you have patience but it is really rewarding! The code worked and I was able to redeem and download this game easily and quickly :D
-Story rich single player game
-cheaper than retail price
-lots to do/open world
-The trash mobs are sometimes harder than the actual bosses.Lots to do sometimes feels overwhelming

Doesn't get better than this.
In a time where production company's use all sorts of sleazy tactics to get more money from you, this game comes out of no where with a reasonable price tag, no preorder crap for an advantage, no pay to upgrade for nexgen, you pay your 50 quid and you get a quality AAA games with no strings attached BS that works flawlessly regardless of platform.
it's a beautiful game on next gen with that solid souls gameplay at its heart.
