Watch the Elden Ring gameplay reveal livestream here

The wait is almost over, but before its release, there's some Elden Ring gameplay to watch.


Though it might have received a slight delay, players can check out some official Elden Ring gameplay today! This special livestream will give viewers 15 whole minutes’ worth of gameplay on which to feast their eyes. You can watch the Elden Ring gameplay livestream right below.

Elden Ring gameplay reveal livestream

The Elden Ring gameplay reveal livestream is scheduled to begin on November 4 at 7:00 a.m. PT / 10:00 a.m. ET. The stream is set to last for 15 minutes, which should give players plenty of opportunity to see what waits for them in February 2022. Though, no doubt it won’t be quite enough to sate all of our appetites. Check out the stream in the YouTube embed below.

There’s a lot happening around Elden Ring these days. Though it has been delayed until February 2022, FromSoftware takes with one hand and gives with another: there will be a network test, which players can sign up for right now.

While we’ve seen glimpses of gameplay and cinematics, we’re hoping that today’s Elden Ring gameplay will show things like the HUD and other features. No matter what’s shown, you can be certain we – and many others online – will be analyzing each frame for any potential revelations.

If you want more Elden Ring goodness after today’s gameplay livestream, check out our piece on 9 things Elden Ring needs to get right and finish it off with everything you need to know about the game. Be sure to keep it locked to Shacknews as we bring you the latest on Elden Ring and whatever Hidetaka Miyazaki creates next.

      It's happening! Taking predictions. Do we see a portion of an area that ends in death? Do we witness the horse and the bonefire or day/night cycle?

        My favorite dual-wield special attack from DS2 is in there, on curved swords instead of rapiers!! So consider me pleased.

      Feels kinda like a step forward from Dark Souls 3 for sure, but in a way it also feels like a step back from Sekiro. I love how detailed everything is as well. I would've liked more Sekiro-like combat, but had my doubts that it could translate well to this type of game without major gameplay changes. I'm ok with that if they make a Sekiro sequel.

      Either way, I'm stoked and can't wait to explore this world. For now, I think I need to lay off any more previews of this game.

        I can understand how they might not want to bring up the polarizing Sekiro elements, even if they actually are possibly in there. Not sorry there are no perilous attacks, since the trade off was ZERO HUD (at least for this demo).

        What it DOES have from Sekiro are SO MANY ENEMY ATTACKS. I have to go back and count how many different attacks they showed just for the dragon or the scrubs, never mind Godrick, who was busting out 3 or 4 different discrete phases. 👀👀

        Even the spirit summons had so many different attack animations. Hot damn!!! Miyazaki has finally fed us from his hibachi of epic struggle.

          Animation variety is going to be nice from a visual and gameplay perspective. It isn't something I paid attention to as I think I was looking more at the new obvious things (I'm not so observant). At the end of the day, I just hope the world is filled with thing to do rather than the usual empty large world. I'm also waiting for a VaatiVidya in-depth analysis :)

        I don’t know why everyone is comparing it to BotW. Because there’s grass and a mount?

        For me, it reminds me a little of the environments and mood of Morrowind, if I had to compare it to anything, but it’s a big open world. Everything else is FromSoftware.

        • reply
          November 4, 2021 10:46 AM

          Open world. Vertical level design. Map. Mount. Stealth. Also something about the magic system. Obviously BotW took elements from Dark Souls. Looks like From is taking stuff from BotW to me.

            November 4, 2021 10:58 AM

            I dunno. To me BotW is about using the environment. You don’t do that in Elden Ring at all. That’s the huge difference that makes it impossible for me to think of them in the same terms. Just based on the timing of the production, seems like Witcher selling so huge was more of the influence, tbh, being Western style narrative RPG based on a book series.

            But as far as the Morrowind comparison goes, I saw multiple environments today that are like how my mind imagined Morrowind when I nearly survived becoming a poop sock addict for it. Also that environment with the enormous ruined black basalt staircase in the middle of the orange forest is something my mind dreamed of reading Michael Moorcock as a kid.

              The physics/chemistry systems from BOTW in a game like this would be nuts.

              But yeah, the physical interactions are a defining feature of BOTW, I agree that the Elder Scrolls games are a better comparison

        • reply
          November 4, 2021 12:19 PM

          The lone BotW influence I saw was with the custom marker / beacon reaching up to the sky for guidance. Though BotW did that better, as they were hidden unless you were looking through the scope, they look always visible here when placed.

            Personally I think it is rad to see a magic column like in ER I love the concept and look of it.

          I think it looks amazing as is and you never know what Next Gen and the PC version will look like on release since that footage is not final.

          Having said that if this was a PC, PS5 and XBSX only game it be of the freaking chain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          I guess ER2 will be insane and go "full retard" :)

      November 4, 2021 12:34 PM

      Looked awesome. I'm all in. Combat looked very dark souls with some new elements, traversal, horse combat, jumping, stealth so sekiro elements as well.

      I mean this looks awesome. I'm ready.

      One thing I didnt notice in game play was what happens when you die/respawn, a little curious (and maybe I missed it, watched and working at the same time).

        November 4, 2021 12:48 PM

        They probably didn’t want to alienate those parts of the audience that don’t want to play something where they die a lot.

        There’ll be plenty of time for that later….

      This is totally Dark Souls 4...I mean in the best way. It's Dark Souls++.

      Even the swing animation of that great club was straight out of DS3.

      Looks amazing!

          It was already pretty easy to put in 500 hours doing stupid shit in DS3 if you were willing to co-op and PvP. But now? Holy shit!!

        It seems like they'll still get to flex their chops in the dungeons, castles, and other structures.

        And I'm sure there will be narrow chasms leading to one-way paths where they can do the micro-design they're known for.

          For sure- just with BoTW it was the dungeons, castles and other structures that really suffered. We'll see I guess!

          Kinda what I was thinking too. I'd love falls to not be a thing

          • reply
            November 4, 2021 3:34 PM

            Yeah, well since it is open world and it looks like the design of the game encourages freedom and adventuring every where in open world I would think fall damage would negate that design and the awesome new feature of the world.

            I don't think you should be worrying about falling in the game unless that is what the mount is for(by design to negate fall damage and encourage mount exploring and traveling) which is what would make sense and when on foot it's back to fall damage like before. This seems logical and I am 100% cool with it.

            Fingers crossed Man.
