There are also several details about the gameplay of “Elden Ring.” The report noted that it would have co-op integration. Also, there would be an option where players would be able to create small parties and explore the map together.

 The Invasion system will also be available in the upcoming ARPG title, according to the report. It also explained that the player’s role as an Invader would greatly depend on the kind of covenant that he is affiliated with. Covenants will reportedly have a great impact on the gameplay of “Elden Ring.”

It was reported earlier that one of the main reason for the absence of official information about the game is because of a massive delay in development, according to Research Blaze. The team behind the upcoming title co-penned by George R.R. Martin was allegedly affected by the current global health crisis caused by COVID-19. Additionally, the report claimed that game publisher Bandai Namco is facing some “trademark issues” with “Elden Ring.”

Game Director Hidetaka Miyazaki earlier shared some update about the game during the 23rd Japan Media Arts Festival. In a letter read by the show’s host, he said that “Elden Ring” will have some themes prevalent in most George R.R. Martin’s work. Hidetaka also mentioned the game is the “deepest From Software has ever done in terms of mythos and history.”
