FromSoftware's Elden Ring offers up a vast open world with an overwhelming amount of areas to explore, secrets to uncover, and enemies to fight, which is why it got two massive strategy guides. The game also happens to be beautiful, with gorgeous visuals throughout. That makes it a perfect candidate for a video game art book, which is why it got two from Udon Entertainment. That's a lot of books, but the good news is that all four are currently on sale.

Given the sheer size of Elden Ring, even the most seasoned player will likely find something new to uncover with these guides. However, one of the biggest draws of these books will probably be that Future Press' previous guides for FromSoftware games like the Dark Souls trilogy have become pricey collector's items in recent years. These Elden Ring guides will likely follow suit.
