Elden Ring

Elden Ring is an action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Europe. In the grand fields where the player's journey begins, mythic creatures prowl the veldts; ineffable horrors lurk in the bogs and marshes, and all manner of soldiers and itinerant. 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. 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 awaits the player's exploration. Players will ride through the vast fields, gallop over rolling hills, and leap to the top of rocky crags on the player's ephemeral steed, revealing a world teeming with life and danger. The game is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox One, and on PC.

Atreus seeks to further understand the clues left behind by his mother and piece together his prophesied role in Ragnarök. Meanwhile, Kratos struggles with his son's desire to uncover more about his identity, knowing it will draw them towards the vengeful Aesir. If that happens, they'll be even closer to repeating bloody mistakes of the past. Together, father and son seek to change the course of fate, journeying across the mythical nine realms and facing fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters. As the threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer, Kratos and Atreus find themselves faced with a choice: between their own safety or the safety of the realms. The game is available on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
