IGN got its first hands-on playtime with FromSoftware’s upcoming Elden Ring. While you can read our full hands-on preview, we also got a new clip featuring a boss from the RPG, Margit the Fell.
Margit the Fell is an Elden Ring boss who’s quite easy. No, I’m kidding, he’s tough and you can see why in the video clip below.
While Margit’s full lore and backstory won’t be revealed until Elden Ring is released in February 2022, the boss fight should be enticing for fans. Despite his size, he has moves that can be parried, leaving him open to heavy damage. But as our previewer Mitchell Saltzman notes, sometimes he’ll follow up his attacks with more moves and punish you for trying to hit him.
Midway through the fight, Margit will summon a lightning hammer which deals massive AOE damage and gives him a spinning attack. The spin move is both difficult to dodge and will eat your entire stamina bar if you try to block it, so good luck.
Check out IGN’s full hands-on preview for our impressions of the massive open-world, unique Breath of the Wild-style dungeons, and new weapon upgrades.
Ahead of the upcoming closed network test, FromSoftware confirmed that Elden Ring will run “up to” 60 FPS on new-gen consoles and PC and that five classes will be playable for the test.
