Steamforged Games turns Elden Ring into a board game

FromSoftware’s hugely popular Elden Ring video game is being turned into a board game by Steamforged Games.

Steamforged has been around since 2014 and is good at turning video games into board games. Previously, the Manchester-based company adapted Resident Evil, Ni No Kuni, Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter World, Horizon Zero Dawn and Dark Souls.(Opens in a new window) in board games, so Elden Ring: The Board Game(Opens in a new window) should come as no surprise.

It should also come as no surprise that a Kickstarter campaign is being launched to fund the game’s creation. When Steamforged used Kickstarter for the Dark Souls board game in 2016, it raised over $5 million, it was therefore obvious to repeat the exercise. Considering that Elden Ring has sold over 16 million copies on PC and consoles, it would be surprising if the Kickstarter didn’t net much more than Dark Souls managed.

Steamforged promises to recreate the challenge of the video game for up to four players, “through clever, dice-free combat, forcing players to strategize and adapt their plans during each encounter – whether ‘a humble soldier Godrick or of the engrafted king himself.’
