The game industry is growing steadily, which is hard to keep up with; it is the most exciting and rapidly evolving form of entertainment. It is a multi-billion dollar a year business, and an even bigger industry when taking into account VR headsets. The industry provides the gamers a powerful storytelling medium and, like any other medium before it – from books to film – games have evolved from simple narratives to immersive interactive worlds that engage the player on an emotional level.
There are so many companies aiming to create virtual worlds, but only VR games can give you a truly immersive experience – because only VR games make you feel like you're really there. Therefore, video games become even more immersive with the addition of a VR playing option! Elden Ring is one of those games that has been incredibly popular in 2022, and now can be played with a VR headset! In this article, we want to give you some information about Elden Ring in general and tell you how to try Elden Ring VR!
What Is Elden Ring?
Elden Ring is a third-person action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware, a Japanese company that created Dark Souls and Bloodborne, and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Elden Ring isn't the first foray into fantasy settings of FromSoftware either; they also created Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Nioh (which was recently remastered for PS4), both of which were set in modern fantasy settings. This time, the story of the game created with the colaboration of Hidetaka Miyazaki and "A Game of Thrones" author George R. R. Martin. The game was announced at E3 in 2019, and it has been released after almost 3 years, on February 25, 2022.
The game features an open world environment with various locations to explore. Players take control of their own custom avatar who can explore a vast open world with many different factions to join and side quests to complete. The game has an original story that takes place after the events of the main series, but also offers an opportunity for players to revisit key locations from the show if they choose so.
