Eldest Souls Release Date Brings Souls-Like Indie to PC, Consoles Soon

Eldest Souls releases this summer and brings its challenging boss rush combat to all platforms.

Following years of development and several previews, Fallen Flag Studios announced an Eldest Souls release date of July 29, 2021, during the E3 2021 Future Games Show. Eldest Souls will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

Fallen Flag describes Eldest Souls as a Souls-like indie game, "a challenging, pixel-art boss-rush game with a focus on fast-paced brutal combat." Like any good RPG, you're goal is killing the gods.

There's a good reason though. The Old Gods brought devastation to the world, turning the environment into a wasteland of desolation. You'll encounter only bosses during Eldest Souls — no trash mobs or grunt enemies roam these lands.

However, there are NPCs to find and side quests to complete when you aren't busy customizing your combat style. We checked out Eldest Souls a couple of years ago and were impressed with it even then, so we're looking forward to the game's full release. Stay tuned for more on Eldest Souls over the next month. 


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
