Elden Ring: a distinctive soulslike feature will be absent, but there is a very good reason

Elden Ring

As we approach the arrival of Elden Ring, more and more information about the game is emerging, mainly the result of the interviews that the development team releases to various magazines. Even today's news is no exception and this time too it is Hidetaka Miyazaki, game designer of FromSfotware and author of the work (as well as other franchises left in the hearts of the players), who explained how his next game will be devoid of a important feature.

As explained by Miyazaki during an interview with EDGE magazine, Elden Ring will not feature the Rings that could be equipped in Dark Souls and other games produced by FromSoftware. However, there is an excellent reason behind this choice and which is obviously linked to the design of the game itself. “We have already explored the various equippable items in other titles, and for this game we have opted for talismans. There are very good reasons for this choice: they allow us to have more variety in terms of designs ", explained Miyazaki.

There is another reason why the rings will not be present and it obviously connects to the lore of the game. "There are rings in the game, which are physically here, but they are unique elements that are already used in the story and linked to some unique events of the characters," explained Miyazaki. The work on Elden Ring was therefore twofold: in addition to having created rings that will be linked to the various events of the game, FromSoftware has also worked on an alternative, which would allow him to explore the world of equipable objects without any duplicates that probably ( at least in our opinion) could also have led to some misunderstandings by users.

Elden Ring Director Explains Why It Has No Wearable Rings

Despite the name, Elden Ring from Bandai Namco and FromSoftware won't have any actual wearable rings in the video game when it releases on February 25th for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC. As to why that's the case given that previous video games from the developer did, in fact, include wearable rings, Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki recently explained to EDGE magazine that it basically boiled down to wanting to make rings truly stand out in the title.

'There are a couple of reasons for this choice,' Miyazaki told the magazine, as shared online by Wccftech. 'The first is that, yes, we explored rings as equippable items a lot in our previous games — Dark Souls, particularly — and so talismans this time allowed us to approach those ideas in a different way, with a greater variety of designs. And the second reason is that, of course, rings do exist as physical 'finger rings' in this game, but more as unique items that are involved in the story and unique character events. So we wanted them to have a special positioning within the world of Elden Ring and also to be something different from a design standpoint in relation to the talismans.'

In other words, allowing rings to be equippable items in Elden Ring would have diluted the power and significance of them in the video game's story. At least, that is, according to Miyazaki. And it sounds as if talismans will largely provide similar benefits to rings in previous FromSoftware games, so there's nothing really lost there mechanically.

Elden Ring itself is currently scheduled to release for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC on February 25th. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the highly anticipated new video game from FromSoftware right here.
