Oh, Elden Ring. Maybe you were not a collective hallucination in any case. Leaked footage of what is supposedly a trailer for FromSoftware’s norse-y RPG has been making the rounds on-line in the present day. Regardless of being filmed on what may as properly be a roll of adhesive tape, followers are thrilled. There’s been almost no official phrase about Elden Ring because it was introduced at E3 in 2019, so an alleged new trailer is, unsurprisingly, trigger for celebration over on the Elden Ring subreddit.
This proper right here is not the leaked trailer, thoughts. It is the official one from 2019. You’ll be able to seemingly nonetheless discover the leaked one going round although.
As ever, take leaks with a dose a salt. This one actually does match with what you’d count on from a brand new FromSoftware joint. It is textbook, actually. There’s nearly nothing on this blurry video that would not have already been anticipated by anybody trying ahead to a different From sport. A fist stuffed with darts thrown at a board labelled “Souls sequence staples” would have produced the identical clips.
There are of us in steel helments stabbing skeletons, carrying flaming swords, and dodge rolling. Some are casting magic that appears fairly acquainted. One is combating some gnarly, many-legged creature. Others are combating big bosses. A dragon breathes fireplace. Equally cryptic as the unique reveal trailer, the voice over says, “I can solely think about what drives you to hunt the Elden Ring. I suppose you possibly can’t be talked into turning again…Very properly then!”
As if even the leaker could not bear to spoil the whole shock, the video ends simply earlier than the place you may count on to see a launch date revealed if it had been included on this specific trailer.
If you happen to had been hoping for hints at what shall be new in Elden Ring, there’s not a lot to report. There does seem like fight from horseback, although, which truly look form of neat and—oh, whoops.
I used to be planning to poke a little bit of enjoyable at of us getting excited over scraps of knowledge however, drat, now I am just a bit excited too. I am additionally trying ahead to dodgerolling my approach via From’s subsequent sword and sorcery journey. Humanity restored, I suppose.
If it is a legit trailer, it is nonetheless unclear the place and after we may see it correctly revealed. Xbox have denied the rumor that they may be revealing Elden Ring particulars in March. We do know that Xbox boss Phil Spencer has performed it although.
