[Update] A new report from Video Games Chronicle reveals that a new Elden Ring trailer featuring a significant amount of off-screen footage has leaked online. The gameplay definitely looks like Souls with some new features like horseback combat.
The gameplay footage then shows a montage of familiar Souls-style melee combat, boss battles against a fire-breathing dragon and a large, sword-wielding foe, and a glimpse at horseback combat in a large, open environment.
According to sources, it's also likely the game will not be released this year, as work from home has severely impacted development.
People with knowledge of the game’s development told VGC that production has been significantly hampered by remote working restrictions, which have been in place for nearly a year. One person close to the game’s development said that, due to the disruption, they believed it was unlikely Elden Ring would make it out this year.
[Original Story] It has been a very long time since From Software and Bandai Namco talked about Elden Ring, and it seems like making a prediction on when the game will be fully revealed is going to be difficult.
Speaking during his latest livestream, former Game Informer senior editor Imran Khan, revealed that, when From Software and Bandai Namco will want to reveal Elden Ring, they will do so by simply dropping a trailer. Khan's statement can be found in this Twitch video at the 2:40:05 mark.
Elden Ring has been announced back in 2019 at the Microsoft E3 press conference, and very little has been said about the game since. Last December, a well-known Chinese content creator shared alleged concept art of the game, revealing some gameplay details that do fall in line with other rumors shared previously. According to well-known journalists like Jason Schreier and Jeff Grubb, we will finally hear more about Elden Ring very soon, so hopefully, we won't have to wait much longer to see if the rumors were true.
Elden Ring is now in development for PC and consoles. A final release date has yet to be announced.
