Elden Ring will offer fresh changes to the game

Yasuhiro Kitao talked about all things related to the next iteration of Soul’s franchise. He clarified that the game is in its final stages of production. This is definitely a piece of exciting news for fans across the world. Gamers will get the chance to step into the expansive world with a trusty mount Reima, a ghastly horse in your tow.

Gamers will experience elaborate dungeons, castles, and other areas that will grant it a nostalgic touch. You can even use your mount to cover vast distances and strafe away from world bosses in crucial fights. This feature is indeed an exciting addition to the game.

Moreover, the game will now feature a map, which will aid you, but the game will follow its open-world concept without any restrictions. You can find smaller bits of maps, which will help you to understand the landscape a bit better. Players are free to explore any area that they deem fit without any indicator or barriers.
