From Software’s new work “ELDEN RINGSeems to have taken the lead in the number of wishlists. In addition, the number of Steam followers and sales are also high, showing high expectations for this work.
“Elden Ring” is an action RPG set in an open field. While inheriting the gameplay of the developer’s past work such as the “Dark Soul” series, it incorporates new systems. Furthermore, the basic part of the world view was produced by George RR Martin, who wrote the novel “A Song of Ice and Fire”, which is the original of the drama “Game of Thrones”. From Software Inc. Fans, as well as fantasy fans and players who like open worlds, will appeal to new audiences.
Elden Ring has become Steam’s number one wishlist, demonstrating its high level of attention. Wishlist is a feature that Steam users keep track of what they are interested in. Works on your wishlist will be notified at the time of release or sale. In other words, it’s a “wish list” feature on Steam. “Dying Light 2 Stay Human” has long been at the top of the Steam Wish List, but it has been replaced. In addition, expected works such as the multiplayer party game “Party Animals”, the PC ported version of the popular PlayStation “God of War”, and the popular Metroidvania new work “Hollow Knight: Silksong” are lined up at the top of the wish list.
In addition, “Elden Ring” is currently the second largest in the total number of “follow” settings that users want to receive work information. According to the Steam database site SteamDB, it has 275,721 followers at the time of writing. In addition, this work is currently ranked 8th in the Steam worldwide sales ranking. Pre-order sales started on November 5, last year, and even now, they are still in the top ranks. From these data, we can see the expectations for “Elden Ring” that many users send. This work is scheduled to be released next month, and interest will increase further. I would also like to expect a start dash after the release.
“Elden Ring” will be released on February 25, 2022 for PC (Steam) and PlayStation 4 / PlayStation 5 / Xbox One / Xbox Series X | S.
