Region Select

Elden Ring will be released in 2 days, but like the new year gracing the world across the globe, the launch will slowly cross the globe, meaning people in New Zealand will get it first and whoever is on the other side of the planet will get it later.

But if you have a Xbox you can change it region for New Zealand and play it together with the kiwis. I personally won't bother but I can see someone going the extra mile to start dying as soon as possible.
