According to a recent ESRB rating for Elden Ring, it’s going to contain a lot of amputated arms, some harsh language, and opponents covered in scales and scars.

“The game includes depictions of gore: collectable items that include severed fingers and tongues; a boss character cutting off its arm; severed arms hanging from a ceiling,” reads the rating.

Hidetaka Miyazaki also recently came out and said that the Demon’s Souls remake put pressure on Elden Ring in terms of graphical fidelity. “Yes, I’m pretty sure our graphics-creation staff felt that pressure more than anyone else,” he stated.

“And not just with Elden Ring, but with all the games we make. Graphical fidelity is not something we put as the top priority. What we ask for on the graphics side depends on the systems and requirements of the game itself, and it takes less priority compared to the other elements of development.

“So this is always an area where I feel a little bit apologetic towards my graphics team because I know they work extremely hard,” Miyazaki continued. “And they’ve worked extremely hard on Elden Ring – our graphics-systems team and our programmers have been pushing a lot of new features to create the best-looking games we’ve ever made.”
