Elden Ring unlock time revealed ahead of Feb. 25 release date
Elden Ring is set to debut on February 25 as the latest action role-playing game from publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment. The upcoming title is expected to feature familiar combat and elements like its predecessors – the souls series and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The Elden Ring release schedule has now been revealed to players on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. The developer also revealed when players can preload Elden Ring on PC and consoles.
Developer FromSoftware revealed via a tweet that PC gamers will be able to start playing Elden Ring on February 25 at 4:30 a.m. IST / February 24 at 11 p.m. GMT. Meanwhile, the game will unlock for console players at midnight on February 25. This means gamers in India will be able to jump into the game on Xbox and PlayStation consoles a bit earlier in India at 12pm (midnight) on February 25, according to the developer.
The tweet reveals that Elden Ring will be available for preload on PC and PS5 48 hours before each region’s release time. Meanwhile, players on Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X can preload the game immediately, according to FromSoftware. The minimum and recommended PC specs for Elden Ring were revealed by developer FromSoftware last week.
Set in the Midland Realm, Elden Ring will send players on a quest to locate the Great Runes to restore the Elden Ring, making it an Elden Lord. Players will also be able to participate in cooperative gameplay by summoning each other. Elden Ring has a linear opening, but as is the case with all open-world sandbox titles, players will be able to freely explore the Lands Between as they progress through the game, while traveling through six main areas via a central hub similar to the Firelink Shrine in Dark Souls. The game is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, in collaboration with Game of Thrones author George RR Martin, who contributed to the mythos of the game.
The game is available for pre-order and prices start at Rs. 2,499 for PC players – Rs. 2,999 for the Deluxe version on Steam – and Rs. 3,999 for the console version on Xbox and PlayStation Store.
