Regarding the rating, see what the ESRB had to say about this upcoming game. We know a little bit about the game and its narrative, but the ESRB has revealed the broad storyline information as well as some of the gore that will be included in the game’s setting, such as bosses, items, and enemies.

This is an action role-playing game in which players assume the role of a character trying to retrieve a magical ring and become the Elden Lord. From a third-person perspective, players explore environments, collect items, and battle various enemies (e.g., knights, fantastical creatures) in melee combat. Players use swords, spears, axes, arrows, and magic to enemies; combat is highlighted by cries of pain, splatters of blood, and impact sounds. The game includes depictions of gore: collectible items that include severed fingers and tongues; a boss character cutting off its arm; severed arms hanging from a ceiling. During the course of the game, a humanoid monster is depicted partially nude, with scales/scars covering its breast and pelvic regions. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.

Elden Ring will be available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and PC on February 28, 2022.
