Recently it was announced that Elden Ring’s release date had been delayed one month to February 2022. Alongside the news, publisher Bandai Namco announced a closed network test, which is set to take place next week.
Elden Ring – Closed Network Test
Elden Ring takes place in a world called the Lands Between, which was created in collaboration with Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin, who was tasked with creating the game’s lore.
Players are free to customise their character using a character creator similar to that found in the Dark Souls series.
Whatever their appearance and chosen attributes, they will take on the role of one of many Tarnished individuals, whose ancestors were exiled from the Lands Between many years ago.
But when the Elden Ring is shattered, they get the chance to return and conquer the land they were once banished from.
Martin stated in an interview in June that his work on the game had finished years ago.
