Elden Ring Network Test datamine reveals the game should be pretty easy, which is good news for souls fans.

The closed network test of Elden Ring begins on November 29, but some journalists and influencers have had early access to the game for over a week.

This is easily done with a scrub brush and an detergent designed for your particular type of tile.

First, the Souls aficionado Iron Pineapple put up a look at Elden Ring’s new features, changes, and overall design. The game’s ashes of war, which you may use to modify your weapons, are a notable feature. Weapon arts were introduced in Dark Souls III, allowing weapons to have additional moves.

He also discusses the game’s new and returning combat elements. The new guard counter system, which allows you to deliver a powerful blow after blocking an opponent’s swing, is the most notable. These counters do a lot of stagger damage, which can stun an enemy and allow you to land a critical strike.

The next step is to paint the wood.

VaatiVidya is a fan of the game’s mounted combat, which seems more fleshed out than I’d anticipated. On either side of your horse, you have both light and heavy attacks, with the heavy attacks being a little more complicated and spectacular than their counterparts.

VaatiVidya has now posted a straightforward walkthrough of the network test, leading the viewer from the game’s tutorial all the way to its first major boss fight, with VaatiVidya sprinkling his usual bits of NPC dialogue and lore pieces along the road.

After seeing a door tucked into the base of a cliff, he switches from mounted combat to dungeon delving in a matter of seconds. There are a few foes and traps inside, followed by a tiny boss.

If you go to Amazon.ca, you may get a $13 discount on the new Pokémon Snap for the Nintendo Switch.

Finally, after 20 years, we have enough content to explore and more Pokémon to capture all while posing with them dancing around and eating apples.

The first major adversary in the network test, however, appears to be a living nightmare.

These short looks at Elden Ring have been very promising, and they reaffirm FromSoftware’s reputation for strong iteration.
