"Elden Ring" is currently one of the best reviewed titles in modern history

Elden Ring has been one of the most anticipated games in the gaming community for years, and the review results seem to live up to the hype. Currently, Elden Ring is one of the highest rated games on Metacritic and OpenCritic. The two sites aggregate scores from various sources, giving an average score that is usually a pretty good indicator of the general critical consensus on a game.

On Metacritic, the PlayStation 5 version of Elden Ring has a 97, along with Legends of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Grand Theft Auto V, Metroid Prime and more. Only four games have scored 98, and Legends of Zelda: Breath of the Wild stands alone at 99. And on OpenCritic, Elden Ring is currently tied with Super Mario Odyssey for the highest score on the site, at 97.

There are a few important things to note with the Elden Ring score. First, the scores are incredibly fresh since the review embargo was lifted just hours ago, and some reviews that have already been released are not yet noted due to the length of the game. New review scores may continue to come in over time, causing the average Elden Ring score to change. Also, both Metacritic and OpenCritic do not include many reviews for older games. Metacritic specifically only has a handful of pre-2000 games in its rankings, with all-time greats from consoles like the SNES not included at all. Still, it's an impressive achievement for FromSoftware.And IGN Greece doesn't disagree with the consensus and gave Elden Ring a score of 9, saying "FromSoftware has once again met our expectations and sought to provide us with a world where when we tune in, we will experience a truly unique adventure."

Classes for Elden Ring are the starting archetypes available to the player. All Elden Ring Classes follow similar concept to that of the Dark Souls series, choosing a class determines the player's starting Stats and Equipment which can then be improved and upgraded later on as you progress throughout the game. This page contains a full list of all the classes in the game. Players can select a Keepsake (like Gifts of Dark Souls) during Character Creation, which provide more customization options during early game.

Elden ring classes that you can use:

  1. Samurai - A good mix of melee and ranged combat, with a weapon that causes Bleed and an excellent Ability in Unsheathe.

  2. Astrologer - A very good mage setup that's easy to upgrade quickly due to access to spells and a good Staff early on. Excellent for new players and veterans alike.

  3. Confessor - Although designed to be a mix of combat and stealth, this Class can be seen as the defacto "Paladin" class. This one sets players up with a 100% Physical Damage reduction Shield, as well as good Faith for Incantations.

  4. Prisoner- Though a more advanced playstyle, it's hard to argue that this Class has an exceptional loadout and stat spread. Not recommended for new players, but will shine in the hands of a Souls veteran.

  5. Vagabond - A tanky Class with good Stats and a 100% Physical Damage reduction Shield allowing players a sizeable advantage over some other Classes. Great for new players and veterans that don't plan to use Spells.
