Elden Ring, the much-awaited sequel to the famous Dark Souls franchise, seemed like a fantasy for quite a while following its announcement. When there were so few specifics and so much enthusiasm, many fans clung to even clearly bogus Russian pronouncements in order to render the fantasy alive. The videogame is genuine, it looks amazing, and it will be released in a couple of weeks’ time. So stop worrying and enjoy the wait.
In order to keep fans of the series from becoming bored, the game’s developers had to come up with a new final boss battle before the title hit the stores. There’s a growing sense of dread as Elden Ring draws closer and closer.
Both Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Bloodborne received a lot of positive feedback. Although the complexity of FromSoftware games is well-known, and the genre may not appeal to everybody, the company nevertheless has a sizable fan following.
Now, it’s only been a little over a week since FromSoftware’s newest IP was announced. Elden Ring is expected to come out as 2022’s most successful title, and fans are responding with sarcasm and morbid worry to the fact that the Elden Ring release date is so close.
How Did It All Began
An anonymous Redditor confessed his trepidation of ever playing the title because of his dread of dying. Definitely, it’s a fairly humorous thread, something which at first glance seems silly but is genuinely quite relevant. Do you Know a rule called ‘Murphy Law’? Well, it’s a rule supposedly fictitious rule that says that if anything bad can happen, it will happen.
Before Elden Ring’s debut, one fan said that coffee made their heart quiver a little, leading them to question their own mortality. It’s just a matter of time before Elden Ring hits shelves on February 25th, and fans are already counting down the days till their certain demise. Nonetheless, this has sparked a flurry of alarming fan accounts and diagnoses.
“I drank two cups of coffee this morning, my heart fluttered a bit and my first thought was “Oh God please no, not before Elden Ring.” I am 28 years old. I feel ridiculous.”
Another Reddit user noted-
Last Thursday I had a seizure which caused me to fall down a full flight of stairs, followed by another one when I got to the hospital. In the process of having the seizure i clenched my muscles so goddamn hard I developed rabdomyalosis (muscles released enzymes that could cause kidney failure) and had to be put on an I.V drip, and later that night developed severe difficulty breathing.
Turned out the influx of fluids into my system caused me to develop pneumonia as well, so I had to be put on oxygen. As I sat in the observation room surrounded by dozens of other poor bastards, barely able to breathe and with every muscle in my body on fire, I got a notification on my phone- my preorder of elden ring was due to arrive at my house on the 28th. I refuse to fucking die until I play that game.

It’s important to note that this franchise signs the demise of players for the smallest of mistakes. That may sound harsh to people who have never played the game before, and those who stick with it understand that dying isn’t a big deal since you have unlimited retries, unending opportunities to improve.
If you lose the will to continue playing the Souls games, you’re doomed from the start. People who play Dark Souls may be more used to fearing death in the real world since getting up after you die is rare in the real world. CMon!! That is how it works and that’s what renders the soul games so fun and entertaining.
