Elden Ring: Realm of the Grafted King Officially Announced by Steamforged Games – NewsNaija.com.ng

Steamforged Games, the team behind Dark Souls: The Board Game, has just announced Elden Ring: Realm of the Grafted King, the first IP-based campaign in the board game. The project was announced on Kickstarter and has been in the works since the early days of development on Elden Ring, since Steamforged received early versions of the game. The first campaign of the board game, the first of many, will take place entirely in Limgrave with around 15 missions and the entire campaign will take around 20 hours.

The game attempts to capture the same expansive open-world sense of Elden Ring and translate it into a tabletop game. Character progression and customization is also a big focus, as players will, through the campaign, be able to level up their characters and take on optional side quests.

“In a vast and sprawling world of decadent grandeur that unfolds throughout your exploration, you will embark on a vast and varied adventure, visiting iconic locations and coming across familiar enemies and characters.” read the game description. “Play solo or with up to three other Tarnished.”

Elden Ring: The Board Game confirms that the first campaign will take place entirely in Limgrave

The board game will mirror players’ journey with the actual game, as the campaign will culminate in a climactic showdown with Margit the Fell Omen. Steamforged plans to support the board game in the coming years with new sets of campaigns taking place in different regions of The Lands Between.

Elden Ring: The Board Game will feature a diceless combat system, forcing players to strategize and adapt their plans with each encounter. It’s unclear when Realm of the Grafted King will release, but it’s likely the campaign is gearing up for a 2022 or early 2023 release.

“Experience the game’s characteristically challenging fights recreated through clever, diceless combat, where you’ll need to strategize and adapt your plans with each encounter, whether it’s a lowly Godrick Soldier or the Grafted King himself.”

At this point, it’s safe to say that FromSoftware has successfully broken into the mainstream thanks to the success of games like Elden Ring, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne. This is a monumental feat, as the studio hasn’t committed to its core, challenging formula over the years. The studio has enjoyed quite a long run of success, as each of its games has been received overwhelmingly positively, with the sole exception of Dark Souls II, which was still quite popular.

Interestingly, even with so many PlayStation IPs coming to PC, Bloodborne has been conspicuously absent from the lineup. For years, PC fans have been clamoring for a PC port of Bloodborne, but PlayStation or FromSoft have yet to comment on it.
