The game is being developed by From Software, and Miyazaki seems to be a huge fan of George R.R. Martin as has helped with it's development as well. Noone knows how he helped or what he did (probably story focused). But I am VERY excited.

It's said to be an open world action RPG. So I imagine it will be very Souls like, maybe single player only like Sekiro?

No release date as of yet, only on Xbox and PC it seems.

The Taipei Game Show (which was due to take place next week) has been postponed until the summer due to the coronavirus outbreak. Just posting it here as new Elden Ring details were supposed to be revealed during the show.

The only "news" I've seen recently are a few rumours about stuff like dynamic wildlife, weather etc, and even then the rumours seem sketchy at best. Wonder are they holding back for the launch of the new consoles?

Been keeping an eye on this for a while, it's been pretty low key in terms of announcements.

My take on it is that this will be a proper, open World action RPG that will have the best action combat of any open World RPG to date, by far. (I likely would give that to Dragon's Dogma at present)

I think it's going to fulfil the dream game concept of Skyrim's freedom with Souls' games combat.

It's not a direct sequel to souls games, but like all of them I expect many references between games and that old favourite armour and weapons will make a return, also Patches likely make an appearance there too.

Replayed DS1 and DS3 this year, definitely looking forward to this in a big way.

From what I've read I don't think it's supposed to be true open-world, but it'd be cool if it was. Having said that, open world games can offer too much freedom at times.

Looks good despite video quality, you can tell it's definitely still a souls type games, getting some old school Ocarina of Time vibes from the horse riding too.

Imagine seeing huge bosses roaming an open but utterly destroyed landscape with architectural remnants, huge castles in the distance that you eventually explore.

Definitely looking good if they can nail that souls games atmosphere.

These videos are reportedly a year old. If that's the case the game is likely a lot different.

Take it with a grain of salt until we get the real trailer.

^Yeah, and put together for an internal audience. I still think it will be next year at the earliest, but at least we've had something I guess.
