Elden Ring – Books of Knowledge, Volume III: Shadow of the Erdtree

It’s time to return to FromSoftware’s open world masterpiece. As Elden Ring’s world expands into the Realm of Shadow, Future Press is proud to present Volume III of the Elden Ring Books of Knowledge. A premium hardcover tome that brings all of the Shadow Realm’s secrets into the light.

This volume provides an encyclopedic catalog of Shadow of the Erdtree’s world and its inhabitants, all with the same meticulous attention to detail we devoted to the Lands Between. Pre-orders are open now at future-press.com and other online retailers. We’ll show off some of what’s inside the book—as well as its bonus features—in another post very soon.

Bloodborne Limited Complete Edition Guide

The Dark Souls Trilogy reprint has shipped and should now be in hands of many those who preordered early. Future Press’ 25th Anniversary celebrations don’t end there, though… We’ve been working on this for a while now and are very happy to announce that our Bloodborne guide will be getting a reprint too!

Today we’ll share some detail into how we’re combining both Bloodborne and Bloodborne: The Old Hunters into a single comprehensive book. Our starting point was a desire to include all unique content from both books, and to make it all to flow as if it had always been a single book.

We didn’t want to create a tome that’s too unwieldy to use comfortably, which meant eliminating any duplicated or redundant content. Both books included sections that cover the same topics, such as merchant inventories, and in these cases we’ve streamlined them to read and function as one complete section.

To avoid losing valuable information, some new content had to be added to sections that didn’t originally appear in both books. As an example, the Bloodborne book‘s progression guide broke down each area’s most important details, items and rewards. This section wasn’t present in The Old Hunters book, but we’ve done the work (and the calculations) to add the new areas to the original format.

The resulting book is essentially an even chunkier version of the original Bloodborne guide with all of the Old Hunters content seamlessly included. We’ve made sure to keep all of the extras from each book intact, such as the concept art gallery and the interview with Miyazaki-san.

Pre-orders for the Future Press 25th Anniversary Bloodborne reprint are now open! Head over to our shop for the best chance to secure your limited edition copy as part of our anniversary celebration.

Pre-orders at other retailers will go live in the coming weeks, and we’ll do our best to let you know here as soon as they do. As with the Dark Souls Trilogy Compendium, other retailers may receive a limited amount of stock, so pre-order early to avoid disappointment.

The Dark Souls Compendium 25th Anniversary Edition is here!

Here’s a first look at the reprint of the Dark Souls Compendium! We received the first copies from our printer recently and couldn’t be happier with the result. Here are a few of the small changes we’ve made:

+ The slipcase has sharper edges for a sleeker look
+ The title is printed on the spine of the slipcase for better shelf display
+ Colors have been adjusted on some artworks to maximize print quality
+ A special 25th Anniversary sticker has been added to the inside cover of the book

Other than these small changes, the content of the book remains perfectly true to the original. The final release date for the EU/UK is the 31st of March. For the US and Canada, due to a delay in shipping the books across the ocean, we ask for a little bit more patience as the book will arrive on April 15th.

If you still want to get a copy, we’d advise you to not wait too long—stocks are beginning to run low due to the amount of preorders we received. We’re so happy to see all the support for this reprint and hope you’ll love the book once it’s in your hands!

The Dark Souls Trilogy Compendium reprint finally happens

2023 marks the 25th anniversary of Future Press publishing its first game guide—the official guide to Tekken 3 on the original PlayStation. Since it was released in 1998, we have published countless game guides and art books, each one uncompromising in its ambition to enrich the experience of playing a particular game.

To celebrate this anniversary, we asked our followers to choose between four possible candidates—each among our most beloved publications, and long since out of print—for a limited edition reprint. After counting the votes across our channels, the winner—by a very slim margin of victory—is the Dark Souls Trilogy Compendium. So, we’re happy to announce that a special 25th Anniversary Limited Edition reprint will be released in February 2024. The book is initially available exclusively here at future-press.com, and pre-orders are open now.

This is a strictly limited one-time reprint, so order early to be sure you get a copy. It features unique 25th Anniversary branding and some slight changes to the slipcase and cover, but is otherwise identical to the original printing. Since the victory was very close, though, we’re likely to be celebrating this anniversary with more than one reprint—stay tuned for more announcements!
