A board game called Elden Ring is on the way.
Steamforged Games, the company that developed the Horizon Zero Dawn, Resident Evil, and Dark Souls tabletop games, will have a Kickstarter campaign "soon" in order to bring the officially sanctioned board game adaptation to the test.
According to a press release from the company, the Elden Ring board game will immerse players in the forsaken Lands Between. "In a vast, dismal world of decaying grandeur that unfolds through their exploration, 1-4 Tarnished players will embark on a huge and varied adventure, visiting iconic landmarks and crossing paths with familiar enemies and characters."
The game, which is making the tabletop game, has stated that it will feature "intelligent dice-free combat," which requires strategy with each encounter, "obviously a lowly Godrick soldier or the Grafted King."
"Elden Ring is a stunning, genre-defining video game, and we are humbled and privileged to be bringing it to your tablets." According to Mat Hart, the founder and CEO of Steamforged Games,
Our aim is to provide authentic tabletop adaptations that capture the essence of what fans know and love about the IP. Fans should expect a dark, richly-realised tabletop world of mystery and danger, with satisfying combat and rewarding exploration. Prepare to lose hours to this game, and to be pleased about it.
Bandai Namco, the publisher, has recently made the entire Elden Ring soundtrack available for listening to across a wide range of music streaming services.
The newly released digital soundtrack includes 67 tracks composed by Tsukasa Saitoh, Shoi Miyazawa, Yuka Kitamura, Yoshimi Kudo, and Tai Tomisawa, many of whom are long-time collaborators in the Software community, having worked on the likes of Sekiro: Shadows Twice, and Bloodborne.
