If you're having trouble with the latest From Software game, you might be interested to know that you can currently get $20 off the upcoming Elden Ring strategy and lore books. Available for pre-order now ahead of their July 29 release, both volumes are enjoying a very healthy 40% discount at Amazon. As an example, Vol 1: The Lands Between is now $29.99 instead of almost $50. Meanwhile, Vol 2: Shards of the Shattering is also at a greatly-reduced $29.99.

Unfortunately, British fans don't have such a good deal. The Amazon UK equivalents are only reduced by £4.80 each, with Vol. 1 being £35.19 instead of £39.99 and Vol 2. also dropping by 12% overall.

Even though we'd obviously direct you toward our own Elden Ring guide first when it comes to strategy (the GamesRadar+ guides team has an exhaustive list of hints and tips ready to go), these Elden Ring books also include background, a bestiary, and an exclusive interview with the game's creator, Hidetaka Miyazaki. Thanks to a snazzy hardcover, they should look pretty great on your shelf as well. Suffice to say, these strategy books would make good gifts for gamers.

Just remember, these tomes won't be arriving on your doorstep or joining the rest of the Elden Ring merchandise until next month - July 29, to be more specific. And because this is both books' lowest price since being announced, there probably won't be a better opportunity to secure your copy.
