Elden Ring Story Explained: A Complete Guide To What You're Doing In The Game

Reading now: 326

Elden Ring is a vast game that takes you through an enormous world brimming with history and lore, as well as tiny stories playing out all around you.

But then there's your story: the things you actually do in the game. You're something called a Tarnished, and you're told you have to get something called the Elden Ring, and that you want to become something called Elden Lord.

There are people you have to kill to do that. Have fun. The reasons you're doing the things you're doing are opaque, there's not a lot of information on the people you're fighting, and it's extremely easy to miss the context of what's going on in Elden Ring.

That's where this guide comes in. After playing the game for more than a hundred hours, reading and watching a host of lore deep-dives from various content creators, and consulting and working with GameSpot's other Elden Ring obsessives, we've created a complete guide to what actually happens in Elden Ring.
