[Update]: Elden Ring has now finally arrived, though sadly not without some technical problems on PC.

I hope you're mentally prepared to die over and over again, because FromSoftware's latest action-RPG Elden Ring is nearly upon us. Once it arrives this February 25th it'll bring with it a wide open world to explore, an assortment of unique weapons and armor to toy around with, as well as an in-depth storyline co-written by George R.R. Martin.

So if you're curious about how all of this looks like in action, as well as what makes Elden Ring stand out from its predecessors, you'll find your answers in the freshly posted Overview trailer. Have a gander, it's quite a lengthy one:

Considering how much focus there has been on the story, I have a feeling that Elden Ring will feature a more traditional narrative rather than the go with the usual 'only vague clues and rumors' approach from the Soulsborne series. After all, if you have George R.R. Martin on the team, you might as well play to his strengths and make a heavily character-focused story!

That aside, it's also worth mentioning that FromSoftware has finally unveiled the minimum and recommended PC system specs for Elden Ring. They're a fair bit spicier than expected, especially when it comes to the RAM requirements, so you might want to check if your PC is up to snuff before you dive in head-first.

Once Elden Ring finally arrives I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can learn a bit more about it and its story over at the official website. Enjoy!
