Gorgeous Elden Ring Story Trailer Debuts At The Game Awards

At The Game Awards, a glorious cinematic trailer for Elden Ring was revealed and it detailed the history of the Lands Between.

In a world crafted by Game of Thrones author George R.R Martin, the cinematic trailer looks like something from his novels. It’s full of war, bloodshed, and demons. However, it of course has that sinister FromSoftware twist.

Westeros would be proud!

According to the press release, the cinematic story trailer transports you to: “ages long ago, you will relive the Shattering, a war that brought darkness to the Lands Between, initiated by demigods’ hunger for power.


You’ll fight alongside General Radahn and Malenia the Severed, but even these two undefeatable warriors couldn’t reunite a world so badly broken. There is only one hope left: the hope that a new Elden Lord will rise and lift the veil of shadows that has fallen over Marika’s domain.
