Elden Ring becomes a free manga

It's been several months since Elden Ring made its appearance on the market, and we all realized how much the most recent From Software title managed to get noticed by the general public in record time. We are talking about an experience that has profoundly marked many players, and that will hardly be put aside by those who have learned to appreciate it. This is why the game world and its characters still live beyond the credits, and while many fans are clamoring for a DLC, here comes a totally unexpected manga about From's latest effort.

Elden Ring
The manga in question is called Elden Ring: The Road to the Erdtree and was drawn by mangaka Nikiichi Tobita and written directly by From Software. What took fans of the game even more off guard was how it is a gag-manga full of jokes and comic situations very common in Japanese print productions. Precisely for this reason the manga is getting mixed feedback, with those who love to see Melina and company in strange situations and some less.

This new serialization follows the story of the Senza Luce Aseo, after he wakes up in Limgrave dressed only in thin rags, without hope and without a virgin. From here on, the misadventures of this strange character unfold between the pages of the manga. The interesting thing, and which might please you very much, is that it is a product that can be used for free. To read this story, currently in English, just click on this address.

Aseo, a poor, Tarnished wretch, finds himself cast out into Limgrave—naked, penniless, hopeless, and maidenless. His only hope in his harsh, unforgiving new home is a mysterious woman named Melina. She urges him to follow the guidance of grace to the Erdtree that looms over the Lands Between. But it won’t be an easy road; a cast of colorful characters awaits Aseo along the way—Patches the Untethered, Blaidd the Half-Wolf, Margit the Fell Omen, Godrick the Grafted, and of course, Ranni the Witch…With little but a loincloth between Aseo and certain death, he strikes out for the first stop on his quest: Stormveil Castle. Will he make it there, or will his journey end before it even begins?
