Fans of the upcoming Elden Ring game have been on the edge of their seats since the game's announcement back in 2019. Well, now alleged leaked trailer footage has surfaced onto YouTube.
The clips showed off a whole lot of locations including scenic greenery, decrepit ruins, night time peril, and grand castles. You can also see plenty of gameplay, a range of weapons and armour, various enemies including a dragon, and numerous cinematic shots. We also see various potential bosses in the clips. The footage is quite grainy so it is hard to tell exactly what you are looking at. However, the footage has also been upscaled in a separate YouTube video.
The pressing question on fans' minds is, is the footage legit? Some of the clips have the word 'Confidential' written on it, which does raise some eyebrows. As well as this, Bloomberg's Jason Schreier seems to believe they may be legitimate. He said on Twitter: “There is strong evidence floating around that the game will be shown relatively soon.”
Shreier also added that: “The leaked Elden Ring footage I've seen is blurry, angled, and only part of the trailer, so I don't think it'd be a terrible idea to just wait for the real thing.”
The game is being developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment, the teams behind the Dark Souls franchise and Bloodborne. What's more, the game is in collaboration with George R. R. Martin, the writer and mind behind the A Song of Ice and Fire series, which was adapted into Game of Thrones for TV.
FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have yet to comment on the supposed leaks.
Elden Ring is scheduled for release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and most likely, next gen consoles. There is no current definitive release date for the upcoming action-adventure RPG.
