Elden Ring Details from ESRB Rating
The rating description has various information about the game’s style, environment, and not to mention, a particular boss. In addition to that, it describes the player character as someone trying to acquire the magical ring and become the Elden Lord. This is probably the ultimate goal of the game. Normally, the FromSoftware games have the ultimate objective of uncovering a mystery or something much confusing like Bloodborne and Dark Souls. Exceptionally in Elden Ring, it seems pretty straightforward.
The player battles fantastical creatures and knights, some of which might be bosses. Adding to that, the weapons mentioned are swords, spears, axes, arrows, and different kinds of magic to enemies. Also, the combat features include cries of pain and impact sounds which is reasonable. One of the things that stand out is the collectibles found in the game. Severed fingers and tongues shall be acquired as collectibles. As a matter of fact, these are pretty gory even by Soulsborne standards. Of course, this definitely indicates the high level of gore present in the game.
There is a boss who cuts off its own arm and probably uses it as a weapon of sorts. Similarly, there is also mention of a humanoid monster which will probably be pretty grim to look at.
