The Internet Finally Got The Game It's Been Waiting For

Summer Game Fest 2021 is underway, and major announcements are already rolling in. For many gamers, one big question that's been lingering for some time is whether "Elden Ring" would get a 2021 release. There has been a real lack of news regarding the title, with only occasional glimmers of hope, like an update to the game's official website. The title officially received an ESRB update, which led some to believe that a release date was around the corner. Ever since, gamers have been chomping at the bit for an announcement regarding the game's launch, with rumors that fans would hear something by the summer. Well, the rumors were true, and a trailer just dropped, and it's got the information everyone has been waiting for.

The footage shows off beautiful renderings of a fantastical world, complete with majestic landscapes and brutal beasts. Viewers also get to see a montage of intense, exciting combat. Perhaps the most exciting part of the trailer, however, is the moment when the release date slowly fades into view

Fans have finally learned that "Elden Ring" will arrive on January 21, 2022, and it will be available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Fans are ready for Elden Ring

Now that "Elden Ring" has a locked release date, fans on the internet are losing their collective minds. The overall viewer consensus appears to be that the game is going to be well worth the long wait, and some comments humorously reflect this sentiment. One YouTube user wrote, "Absolutely worth the wait, my grandkids enjoyed the trailer i longed for." Another commenter similarly quipped, "I have grey hairs now and the wait was still worth it." Others simply wanted to chime in so they could leave their own timestamped mark on the day that "Elden Ring" was finally confirmed. This is truly a historical moment for fans everywhere.

Fans are celebrating on Twitter as well. The trailer has been pinned to the top of the official "Elden Ring" Twitter account, and the resulting thread is full of elated gamers. The comments that have poured in have ranged from videos of credit cards being tossed to memes expressing the sheer important of this game. The trailer was so tantalizing, it even convinced one user that they needed to buy a PlayStation 5.

Indeed, anticipation is at an all-time high, but some people are still a bit wary. One person on Twitter reminded others that "Cyberpunk 2077" was also once meant to be the greatest thing in gaming history. In about six months, gamers will see whether or not "Elden Ring" was truly worth the wait.
