One Ring of Elden player believes the real world map will be at least 7 times larger than what was shown in recent closed tests.
Reddit user AdLivTho used a pixel color counter to calculate the approximate area of the map that was available during the closed test and compared it to maps that FromSoftware Inc had previously revealed.
According to their calculations, only 13% of Ring of Elden map has been available to play so far. You can see their findings below, via Reddit.
“This game is going to be so huge I can’t even imagine it,” rafaeldariiel replied while Haxorz7125 added “It took me 8 hours to complete The gate of death, a 4 hour game. This shit is gonna last me a lifetime.
The findings were confirmed by a secondary player, El Mangusto.
Author George RR Martin recently shared what made him want to help out with “a little world building” in the game.
According to game of thrones author, Martin was approached by game designer Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team “a few years ago”, and asked if he would be interested in creating “the backstory and story for a new game which they were working on”.
Although Martin clarified that he had never been into video games – although he mentioned that he had a fondness for strategy games – he revealed that “the offer was too exciting to be Refused. What they wanted from me was just a bit of world-building: a deep, dark, resonant world to serve as the basis for the game they were planning to make. »
As it is, Ring of Elden is currently the most searched game on Steam ahead of its release next month. According to a recent ESRB rating for Ring of Elden, it will contain plenty of amputated arms, harsh language, and opponents covered in scales and scars.
“The game includes depictions of gore: collectibles including severed fingers and tongues; a boss character severing his arm; severed arms hanging from a ceiling,” the note read.
