Elden ring becomes an ordeal for FromSoftware fans long before the release. The new action RPG from the Souls forge, announced in summer 2019, has been a long time coming. It was called a “natural evolution of Dark Souls” when it was announced, but fans have to be patient until they know what exactly is meant by that.
Now, however, an allegedly leaked trailer for Elden Ring appears on the Internet. According to a report by Eurogamer, the video has long been in unauthorized hands (“certain circles”) and now it is also circulating on the Internet. According to VideoGamesChronicle, it has its origins in chat groups. On Twitter, clips are making the rounds from a trailer that has allegedly been discarded.
VGC also reports that Elden Ring is unlikely to be released this year. With reference to “sources familiar with it”, of course. Accordingly, the game has already been postponed several times internally. An idea of the title, which we don’t know much about so far, still seems possible in the near future.
Not only that a trailer for it was obviously already in preparation. Even well-informed journalists like Jason Schreier and Jeff Grubb announced it. Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg holds against it. On a report from DualShockers that Elden Ring would be presented at a Microsoft event on March 23, he said: “That does not happen.“
But something is already happening here, you can see that.
