IGN obtained its first hands-on playtime with FromSoftware’s upcoming Elden Ring. When you can learn our full hands-on preview, we additionally obtained a brand new clip that includes a boss from the RPG, Margit the Fell.
Margit the Fell is an Elden Ring boss who’s fairly simple. No, I’m kidding, he’s robust and you’ll see why within the video clip under.
Whereas Margit’s full lore and backstory received’t be revealed till Elden Ring is launched in February 2022, the boss combat needs to be attractive for followers. Regardless of his measurement, he has strikes that may be parried, leaving him open to heavy harm. However as our previewer Mitchell Saltzman notes, generally he’ll observe up his assaults with extra strikes and punish you for attempting to hit him.
Halfway by means of the combat, Margit will summon a lightning hammer which offers large AOE harm and provides him a spinning assault. The spin transfer is each tough to dodge and can eat your complete stamina bar if you happen to attempt to block it, so good luck.
Take a look at IGN’s full hands-on preview for our impressions of the large open-world, distinctive Breath of the Wild-style dungeons, and new weapon upgrades.
Forward of the upcoming closed community check, FromSoftware confirmed that Elden Ring will run “as much as” 60 FPS on new-gen consoles and PC and that 5 lessons might be playable for the check.
