Elden Ring Will Feature at the Taipei Game Show Next Month

By Sean Carey,
Ever since its announcement at E3 2019, news on FromSoftware's mysterious Elden Ring has been thin on the ground. However, it looks like we will see more of the collaboration between the makers of Dark Souls and Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin at The Taipei Game Show in a few short weeks.


According to industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, the game will not be playable, which suggests we could perhaps see a new Elden Ring trailer or maybe a rehashing of the one previously shown at E3 2019. The Taipei Game Show takes place on February 6 to 9, and the new video content (whatever it might be) will be shown at the PlayStation exhibition as part of Sony's third-party offerings.

Not much is known about Elden Ring, hopefully, a new trailer could shed some light on the game. All that we do know is that the game will be a third-person action-RPG, similar to Dark Souls in terms of gameplay. The game world is also expected to be open compared to the maze-like worlds of the Dark Souls games.


In an interview with IGN, the game's creator, Hidetaka Miyazaki, said, "Elden Ring is a third-person action RPG with a fantasy setting. The gameplay is not so far from Dark Souls. That doesn’t mean that the gameplay will be identical, but you could say that Elden Ring belongs to the same genre.

“While the narrow and complex dungeons of our previous games were indeed interconnected, Elden Ring’s environments will be much more open and vast. The more extensive world will form the base of Elden Ring’s gameplay, and its mechanics are designed with that type of environment in mind.”
