According to the latest post over at 4Chan, FromSoftware's upcoming action RPG Elden Ring features eight huge kingdoms with main bosses in each kingdom along with mini-bosses The leaker also claims that there is a ranking system for PvP.
The leak claims that Elden Ring will have eight kingdoms and that each kingdom will have its own unique main boss. Kingdoms will also feature mini-bosses and are described as huge and sprawling. "Bigger than any Dark Souls 3 or Bloodborne levels".

On top of this, the leak states that "Pray Sanctuary" will replace bonfires while "limbs" are the new currency, replacing souls. For every killed enemy, players will receive only one limb, unlike many souls that you receive in Dark Souls games when slaying an enemy. Bosses will drop limbs "truly special in value".

As for the eight kingdoms, each one will have only one "bonfire" which may seem a bit too harsh for players but apparently, these regions will feature many shortcuts to make the progression easier.

In addition to these eight regions, there is also a large hub area "The Field". Here, players will be able to ride their mounts, which include horses, wolves, bears and some mounts with unique designs. The Field will also have mini-bosses, described as "bosses from Dark Souls 1 and 2." The leaker claims that The Field is a truly special area with puzzles, side areas and caves for players to explore.

PvP will feature a ranked system and will be available only in kingdoms while The Field will be PvP-free area.

The leak features some additional info about the quests, NPCs and how players' choices will affect the endings. You can check it out here.

Not gonna even bother with leaks and rumors at this point. FROM Software is a pretty sure bet nowadays. Great dev on the PS3/360 and great dev again on the PS4/X1.

If true... nope. I don't have time for tedious back-tracking through the same enemies repeatedly, had enough of that from Souls and it's boring. Let me know when you've discovered a modern save-system, the "old-school" method is artificial padding.

Whatever happened to that blood/bone animation teaser they did years ago? Did they ever tell which project that was for? Was that Elden Ring? Sekiro? Gave me kind of Bloodborne wibes more than any of those.

That was the "Shadows die twice" trailer for Sekiro, which has the full title "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice"

the "pray for bonfires" was planned for DS3 and then dropped, some of it is still in the game files. At least after late september i doubt we are gonna see anything.

That sounds eerily specific. I feel like its real. Rather, I want it to be real. The limbs thing sounds cool too.

This game has me the most excited for the next gen. First parties are dead silent, hope with the MS event coming up we start seeing more from the 3rd parties.

"Someone there" doesn't mean anything. It's 4chan. I can go there right now and post a wall of dumb shit I make up, organize with a few people on discord to start bumping my post and than have someone take a screenshot of it.

Sure.

Yet sometimes some real information comes from there... Just saying.

Limbs or souls, it matters not.

Just let me kill all those hapless fools.

Get the game into my veins so I can take the blood out of theirs.
