2022 has been a blockbuster year for video games, but out of all the titles released so far, Elden Ring has staked a claim as one of the best around. If you’ve been looking to jump into From Software’s elegant masterpiece of fantasy, the good news is that there are Black Friday deals on right now that slash the price significantly on this challenging sandbox adventure.
Over at Amazon, Elden Ring for PS5 and Xbox Series X is currently on sale for $39, a big discount considering that the game’s price seldom drops below more than $10 during sale events. Meanwhile, Best Buy is selling Elden Ring for $40, and Walmart will have it for $35 starting November 21.
If you’re a fan of souls-like games, Elden Ring is a must-have title. It doesn’t stray too far from the Dark Souls and Bloodborne formula of high-risk and high-reward gameplay, but its open-world design is a work of art that few games can match, let alone surpass. Dripping with detail and stuffed to the digital brim with secrets, Elden Ring is challenging but engrossing gameplay that always offers its players something new to discover while they explore the vast land in front of them.

“In a genre that has become wrought with bloated and over-designed games, Elden Ring is defiantly contrarian in almost every way,” Tamoor Hussain wrote in GameSpot’s Elden Ring review. “Its commitment to design by subtraction and to placing the responsibility of charting a path through its world entirely on the player makes it stand head and shoulders above other open-world titles. Elden Ring takes the shards of what came before and forges them into something that will go down in history as one of the all-time greats: a triumph in design and creativity, and an open-world game that distinguishes itself for what it doesn’t do as much as what it does.”
