But unlike its action adventure game "Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice," "Elden Ring" will not have a fixed main character and its dungeons aren’t interconnected, the developer added. The only big thing that is similar to Sekiro is the NPCs, which the developer said they enjoyed, giving more focus on NPCs on Sekiro.

Despite the big similarities with "Dark Souls," players shouldn’t expect the new game to be identical to "Dark Souls." Instead, players should expect a new game, an evolution of the critically-acclaimed hit "Dark Souls." First revealed at E3 2019 event, the "Elden Ring’s" release date has yet to be announced by the developer. But it’s coming across all major gaming platforms, the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Watch the trailer below to get more about this new game.
