ELDEN RING - Story Summary Explained


How could it come to this ?

Long ago, the Elden Ring brought prosperity to the Lands Between.
But one day it was shattered. The shards, great runes of enormous power fell into the hands of the demigods.
And although the demigods fought for control, in the end there was no victor.

And so began an era without a Lord…
…Until, from across the Sea of Fog, a Tarnished of no renown arrives at the Lands Between.
The Tarnished takes their first steps into the world, knowing not what awaits them.

Greetings traveler, from beyond the fog. I am Melina. I offer you an accord.

The Tarnished accepts Melina's request, and begins a journey to bring her to the base of the Erdtree.
As they explore, the Lands Between become known to the Tarnished. And they gain power, shaping themselves in their own way.
Throughout their journey, they cross paths with unlikely allies.

Death has left its mark, once again.

Rise with us, against the Erdtree.

Listen, the Fingers speak.

And fearsome foes that stand in their way.

Well, a lowly Tarnished, playing as a Lord. I command thee kneel!

So much power, in the hands of one Tarnished. Growing in strength, with every triumph.
Who crossed the fog to the Lands Between. To stand before the Elden Ring.
And become the Elden Lord.

The Lands Between… are yours to discover.
