This is not a surprise, as the game is acclaimed by the press as well as by the players. FromSoftware’s latest game is a real hit with more than 12 million copies sold worldwide.
It is clear that there is still an audience for demanding and difficult games. Although it is recognized that Elden Ring is surely the most affordable Souls-like FromSoftware, it represents a concentrate of all that is best in the field. Besides press reviews are unanimousan echo that is also found with players who are devouring the bowels of the Underworld in speed run mode.
A success which is also reflected in the sales figures, since Elden Ring sold more than 12 million copies worldwide… A precocity record for a game that is released on February 25thbarely marred by the few inconveniences experienced by PC gamers.
This exceptional performance is also hailed by the main players in the license, such as Hidetaka Miyazaki, Game Director and CEO of FromSoftware:
It’s amazing how many people have played Elden Ring.
I would like to express our sincere thanks on behalf of the entire development team.
Elden Ring is based on a mythological story written by George RR Martin. We hope players will enjoy a high level of freedom as they venture into its vast world, explore its many secrets, and face its many threats.
Thank you for your continued support.
And Yasuo Miyakawa, President and CEO of Bandai Namco:
Co-development between FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment has resulted in the all-new action-RPG Elden Ring, which exceeded 12 million units sold worldwide.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our fans who brought Elden Ring into their gaming lives. I’m very proud to have been part of making such a wonderful and fantastic game with FromSoftware, under the direction of director Miyazaki, and with George RR Martin.
A lot of effort has been put into creating Elden Ring so that we can exceed the expectations of our fans around the world. Likewise, we will continue our efforts to extend the brand beyond the game itself and into everyone’s daily lives.
We will continue to create fun and fulfillment through entertainment, so that we can grow closer and connect with our fans around the world.
An observation which is therefore not likely to discourage FromSoftware to continue to offer its software often recognized for a challenge taken up and its universes artistic direction really “ranked up there” in the video game sphere.
Besides, if you still needed a reason to convince you, don’t hesitate to consult our Elden Ring test, written by the excellent and inescapable Kikitoes.
