Interestingly enough, it seems that the PC version of Elden Ring will actually release about six hours ahead of the console versions in North America. That’s bound to lead to a bit of frustration for those hoping to enjoy Elden Ring on PlayStation or Xbox consoles, but that might be something players can circumvent by changing their time zone on the console. It’s unclear whether that will actually work, but those anxiously awaiting the game might find that’s it’s worth looking into!
For those unfamiliar with Elden Ring, the game is the latest from director Hidetaka Miyazaki, best known for his work on the Souls series. That alone would be enough to get a lot of gamers excited, but Game of Thrones creator George RR Martin has also had a hand in Elden Ring‘s world-building. There has been a significant amount of hype surrounding the title, and many already expect it to be a Game of the Year contender. Of course, 2022 has only just begun, and the review embargo has not yet been lifted, so it’s quite early to say. Hopefully, Elden Ring will prove worth the wait, regardless!
