Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has officially rated From Software's upcoming action RPG Elden Ring. 

Elden Ring has received M (Mature 17+) rating due to its blood and gore, language, suggestive themes and violence. This is not unusual for From Software games which traditionally receive M rating for its content. 

On  the official rating page , ESRB also have a detailed description of Elden Ring gameplay and everything that is not suitable for younger gamers.

Here is the official Elden Ring rating description on ESRB:

This is an action role-playing game in which players assume the role of a character trying to retrieve a magical ring and become the Elden Lord. From a third-person perspective, players explore environments, collect items, and battle various enemies (e.g., knights, fantastical creatures) in melee combat. Players use swords, spears, axes, arrows, and magic to enemies; combat is highlighted by cries of pain, splatters of blood, and impact sounds. The game includes depictions of gore: collectible items that include severed fingers and tongues; a boss character cutting off its arm; severed arms hanging from a ceiling. During the course of the game, a humanoid monster is depicted partially nude, with scales/scars covering its breast and pelvic regions. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.
