Eurogamer Newscast: What might an Elden Ring franchise look like?

And the game's first big patch discussed.

This week on the Eurogamer Newscast, it's all about Elden Ring. The all-conquering FromSoftware game has been an enormous success - and now we're starting to get a glimpse of what's next.

In the short term, that means fascinating updates like the newly-released patch which adds NPC quest markers. Is that a good thing? When was this decision decided? We discuss. And in the longer term, Elden Ring's success sounds like sequels and spin-offs are now on the cards. How long until the inevitable Netflix anime?

Chatting with me about the future of Elden Ring are Eurogamer news reporters Ed Nightingale, Victoria Kennedy and Ishraq Subhan. Join us to hear what we think this might mean for Dark Souls and Bloodborne sequels, and what an Elden Ring monopoly board might look like.
