Developer FromSoftware makes some of the best action RPGs in the industry, and ever since 2019's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, fans have been eagerly waiting for the studio's next project: Elden Ring. Featuring gameplay that blends the dodge-heavy combat of Dark Souls with elements of Sekiro's fluid movement and stealth mechanics, Elden Ring looks to be one of FromSoftware's best games yet — especially since it's more open and exploration-focused than any of the developer's previous titles.

Following a recent showcase of new Elden Ring gameplay footage, FromSoftware and publisher Bandai Namco pushed preorders for Elden Ring live, including several different editions that each include special collectibles and other items. Here's everything you need to know about preordering Elden Ring, including what preorder bonuses there are, what's included in each edition, and where preorders are available.
