ELDEN RING CLOSED NETWORK TEST ANNOUNCED AHEAD OF NEW FEBRUARY 25, 2022, RELEASE DATE

ELDEN RING™, the grand fantasy Action-RPG developed by FromSoftware Inc. and published by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. will be playable in a Closed Network Test planned during November 12-14 across the Americas.

Selected fans will be able to experience the opening hours of ELDEN RING to get a hands-on glimpse at what the full game will have to offer while assisting the development team in testing the game’s online servers ahead of its new release date of February 25, 2022. The depth of the game and the degree of freedom in strategy exceeded the initial expectations, hence it has been decided to extend the development time for final adjustments.

  • November 12: 3:00 A.M. to 6:00 A.M. PST
