Become Elden Lord in 4 easy steps!

Elden Ring is a massive game. Anyone who has spent time in the Lands Between knows this. Exploring it requires a lot of time, patience and divergent thinking to discover all its secrets. Luckily for players in Japan, there will soon be an official Elden Ring guide.

Yes, the whole book is in Japanese, but hopefully it can be localized for Western players. The guide is made by Dengeki Game Books, which makes a ton of guides for different games. Many of their guides are for Japanese games that don’t make it to North America.

The Elden Ring guide says it’s official, but there’s no indication that it was made with any input from FromSoftware. Although the game is fairly open-ended to get to the end, the guide gives step-by-step instructions on the most direct paths to take. There are also lists and graphs of all weapons with their stats and attributes.

Readers will find maps with the locations of NPCs, weapons, gear, items, and spells. There are also area maps that are not meant to be mapped in the game itself.

Of course, the bosses are what really make Elden Ring challenging. Each of the boss fights is broken down into strategies to help you conquer your enemies.

If this guide doesn’t make it to North America, there’s always the Shattered Ring app. Elden Ring is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
