When you go to the official Bandai Namco Asia website, it shows that Elden RIng has been rated as PEGI 16 but again, keep in mind that it does not have a page on Pegi.info yet since the rating is just provisional. To ensure that this rating was just added, I visited Wayback Machine, and it did not show any rating previously.



Jeff Grubb from VentureBeat has been teasing some Elden Ring News, and he said, “Give me 60” to a fan. It could mean that we might get Elden Ring news in the next 60 days, but again nothing is confirmed yet; even though Jeff Grub has been reliable sometimes in the past, I would like to see an official announcement before getting hyped for anything.

So, no more "AMAZING CHEST AHEAD" warnings before entering NPC rooms?

This is gamebreaking. BRB, starting a change.org petition.

DS, DS2, DS3 and Bloodborne were PEGI16.

Not to confuse that with ESRB, where they were all "M" except "T" rated Dark Souls 2

Gameplay Reveal Trailer in March with an August/September 2021 release date. That's my bet.

It would be interesting to see how Bloodborne R fits into From's release calendar for this year. At this point I think it's either May (announcement in a SoP in the coming weeks) or July (announcement at Sony's E3 event).

How come you're so sure this will happen? :p

Because I trust the person who told me about it, a person who discussed this project months before RedTechGaming (who also got the MGS remake right) reported basically the same information a couple of months after and also knew about Demon's Souls being a launch game in advance to the first PS5 event.

When was that confirmed?

When verified insiders on Era, whose claims perfectly line up with VGC's recent report on all of the Konami stuff, started to also talk about the MGS remakes since November of last year (?

Well in England it is rated PEGI 12+.
Interesting. Is this the same for every game? I stayed in the UK for almost 3 years (10 years ago) and i don't remember any rating differences with the rest of Europe.

is it still ps4/xbox one?
Yes also ps5/ series x version should be up to consideration at this point

Anyway when a game is getting ratings how close it is to completion?

Release date must be nearby although i can see it slip into 2022

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think that the PEGI rating of the same product can change between the various Country that adhere to the standard. Maybe you are talking about different editions of the title ? Like, a "Game of Year" edition with all the DLCs could have a different rating from the standard edition

To my knowledge everywhere in the world both Demon's Souls and Dark Souls are PEGI16. And looking at my physical copies that applies to both CE as well as regular versions.

It's V4skunk V4skunk who says that it's different in the UK.

I mean we are looking at cyberpunk+ delay here right? There hasn't even been any gameplay footage??
I believe so, it was rated for the April release date. All this shows is even if Elden Ring was rated already it tells us very little about how far the release date can be.

I thought I was really funny when I wrote this, then I realized thousands of people probably came up with the exact thing independently.

I dont necessarily think it will be a longer delay than Cyberpunk, afaik From Software doesnt have a habit of releasing tons of gameplay before release. There were also rumors about the game being pretty much finished, being in polishing phase and Phil Spencer said in an interview he had played parts of it!

Don't forget the swamp nerco babies in Demon's Souls Valley of Defilement.

Pretty much all the other very dark stories that came out of the Soulsborne series. I'm sure this will have all of that in Elden Ring.

Don't forget things like RoboCop was marketed to kids in the 80's even though it was a rated R movie. You get to see RoboCop properly shoot a guy in the dick.

I have no concerns even if it was rated E for everyone. From has always made great games and I have no doubt this one will be too no matter it is rated.

That's less than Bloodborne and Sekiro, which where +18.

Kinda weird considering the dark fantasy setting it seems to be aiming for based on the art leaks. Those reminded me of Berserk and that's as +18 as it can get.
Bloodborn is rated 16+ (Yeah I know, stupid thing)
All Dark Souls is 16+
Demon's Souls Original is 16+ but Remake is 18+
