Twitter user PlayStation Game Size, who pulls data from PlayStation Network servers, has found a new entry for FromSoftware Elden Ring in the back. The title, which will be released on February 25, 2022, is expected to be around 45GB without a day one patch being applied.
With preload starting February 23rd, you’ll have plenty of time to download Elden Ring in time for launch (unless your internet speed sucks, in which case you should probably buy the disc).

Author George RR Martin, who created the world of Elden Ring, recently wrote a blog saying that the game looks “amazing”. On the PlayStation 5, it will support up to 3840 x 2160p, 60 frames per second, HDR, and ray tracing via one patch. We’re not sure if it will be a day one patch or a post-launch patch, but we’ll make sure to update our readers when we find out.
Elden Ring will send players on a quest to become the Elden Lord after the titular ring is destroyed and the ‘Lands Amongst’ lose the ring’s grace. Players must restore the ring, the fragments of which are in the possession of the demigods, empowering them in all the wrong ways for all the wrong reasons.
If you want to read a fancy version of this story, here’s an official synopsis:
Marika’s offspring, all demigods, claimed the Elden Ring fragments known as the Great Runes, and the mad stain of her new strength unleashed a war: Destruction. A war that meant abandonment by the Great Will.
And now the guidance of grace will reach the Faded Ones who were despised by the grace of gold and exiled from the Midlands. Living dead, your long-lost grace, follow the path to the Inland Lands beyond the misty sea to stand before the Elden Ring.
And become Lord Elden.
