The embargo on the reviews of Elden Ring, FromSoftware’s latest work, expired today at 16:00 Italian time. With the release set for February 25, 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and PC, it seems natural that the many fans of Hidetaka Miyazaki and the development team are looking for confirmation on the goodness of the title and that without too many surprises they arrived.
As testified by Metacritic, the latest FromSoftware house game received an average score of 97 out of 100. It is (and here we can say with certainty) the only game of the Japanese development team to have this score. In fact, all the others travel on lower media, with one exception, represented by Bloodborne: the PS4 exclusive (rumored to be coming to PC too) takes off with a score of 92. In third position, in this sort of “ranking”, we find Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which in Xbox One version manages to get a score of 91.
The reviews of Elden Ring they are all positive, at least those received on day one: out of 27 rated reviews, in fact, there is not even one negative. They remain out of this statistic review still in progress, or that they will be updated once the editor has finished the game or has dispelled the last doubts. A standard procedure, in an industry that unfortunately very often does not allow to reconcile personal life with the tight deadlines of the various embargoes dictated by publishers.
FromSoftware’s latest game is an extraordinary success and concludes a February full of quality releases such as Horizon Forbidden West, Dying Light 2: Stay Human and Sifu, giving us hope for the future of this industry.
