After two years of silence, Elden Ring showed up again with the recent trailer released during the Summer Game Fest 2021. Following this unexpected revelation, various official news followed one another in the following weeks, and in the very last few hours new official details regarding the lore emerged.
Bandai Namco has indeed updated the official website of Elden Ring, adding multiple information on the narrative background which will be the background to the work. We leave you here below in brief excerpt concerning the lore of Elden Ring, inviting you to read the full version on the Bandai Namco official website:
The Golden Order is broken. Throughout the Interregnum, the demigods who possess the fragments of the Ancestral Ring quarrel and wage war over the ruins of a perfect kingdom, now abandoned by the golden guidance of the higher Will.
The outcasts arrive as the echo of the conflict thunders in the distance. In the past, their ancestors lived in the Interregnum. Unfortunately, their tribe lost the blessed light of grace a long time ago and was sentenced to exile. They are called Lightless and have returned to reclaim the ancestral Sovereignty that was promised them by legend.
This is the world of Elden Ring. The Interregnum awaits your exploration, Lightless. You will traverse vast plains, gallop over hills and leap to the top of rocky cliffs on your vanishing steed, unveiling a world teeming with life and peril.
