ELDEN RING Closed Network Test announced, release date on February 25 2021

ELDEN RING™, the grand fantasy Action-RPG developed by FromSoftware Inc. and produced by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. will be playable in a Closed Network Test planned on November 12th.

Selected fans will be able to experience the opening hours of the long-awaited title 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 release date.

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 thus moving the release date to February 25, 2022.
