The open world is a dark fantasy Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Despite having mentioned it in the Beta preview, I’ll comment again here. As cliché as it is to compare a new game to Breath of the Wild these days, this is the reality of Elden Ring: this is the most creative, immersive and interactive world of a game from the developer to date, bringing a gigantic map to explore, adventure and discover secrets, specially forged as a full plate playground for lovers of FromSoftware style.

And why is it similar to Breath of the Wild? Basically, every bit of the setting invites the player’s imagination, every visual element that stands out on the horizon holds an unmapped reward, each cave entrance brings an optional boss and a treasure at the end of the dungeon. You’ll still be adventuring in the classic way in search of Runes, the souls of the Elden Ring, and searching for items, but there’s more to it than that.
