PlayStation Japan hosted a PLAY!PLAY!PLAY! livestream event featuring a discussion of the upcoming From Software game Elden Ring between Virtual YouTuber Dennou Shojo Siro and host Hatsune Matsushima. No new gameplay footage was shown, but a few new screenshots of the game were revealed.
The following screenshot shows the player mounted on the Spirit Steed aiming a bow and arrow at a gargoyle-like creature in the back. Some sheep can also be seen grazing on the grass in the background. The time of day seems to be at dusk or dawn.
The following screenshot depicts the player huddled around some sort of luminescent light in a field of grass and flowers. The darkness surrounding the player suggests that this occurs during the night cycle of the game.
Explicit day and night cycles of Elden Ring were also shown, as seen in the screenshots below. We can see that the world becomes visibly more dreary and dark as night falls, with the great Erdtree illuminating the skies. You can view this gorgeous scenery below.
Elden Ring will be releasing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC via Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on January 21, 2022.
