Elden Ring – Books of Knowledge

“Without guidance, without the strength of runes and without an invitation to the Roundtable Hold, you are fated, it seems, to die in obscurity. Luckily for you, however, there is one shining ray of hope…” –White Mask Varré

In The Lands Between, FromSoftware have created a world even more vast and filled with secrets than most will ever know. In its deepest caves and remotest mountain peaks lie treasures untold. Finding these places is difficult; plundering them all is a feat that few will accomplish. Fortunately, an unimpeachable source of reference is about to arrive.

Chronicling everything in a world this large is beyond the scope of any single book, however, and we at Future Press refuse to compromise on the quality of our products. We are, therefore, proud to present the Elden Ring – Books of Knowledge, Volumes I and II. A pair of books that, together, will form the definitive reference guide to this astounding world and its inhabitants.

Volume I: The Lands Between is a complete record of the overworld, dungeons and underworld in Elden Ring—no matter where you go, every inch is carefully mapped, its secrets laid bare. We present high level views of progression to reach the game’s endings, alongside streamlined paths that highlight the places and details you’re most likely to miss while exploring. NPC quests are clearly charted and each one is accompanied by key dialog. Finally, a dedicated lore section helps to piece together the game’s enigmatic storyline.

No matter what manner of creature you encounter, it will be catalogued, dissected and analysed in Volume II: Shards of the Shattering. Thoroughly tested combat strategies help to overcome even the toughest of foes, from the lowliest of wretches to the Shardbearers themselves. Next, the arsenal of spells and equipment you can bring to bear against these foes is laid out and all stats and effects are explained in full. All this data is put to use to recommend truly optimal builds along with progression routes to obtain the ideal equipment.

Volume I: The Lands Between is aiming for release late summer, and Volume II: Shards of the Shattering will follow in fall 2022. Both books can be pre-ordered now. Due to the ongoing global manufacturing and logistic difficulties, we do encourage everyone to pre-order their copy early to avoid disappointment later.
