It appears that a very short clip from Elden Ring has found its way online. When we say short we mean short as the clip is only six seconds long and looks like it could be from some kind of cutscene. The shot appears to show some kind of underground catacomb, church or crypt with statues of knights kneeling with swords in hand. There are what look like pews lined up in the room as well. You can watch the clip below.
From Software’s parent company Kadokawa Corp has confirmed that a number of projects had been delayed, and that could mean Elden Ring will not see a release until at least 2022. Elden Ring was announced at E3 2019, shortly after the release of From Software’s last title, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. What makes the game all the more remarkable in the eyes of fans is that it’s being created in collaboration with A Song of Ice and Fire novelist George R. R. Martin, with Hidetaka Miyazaki a fan of his work and using Martin’s contributions to set the foundation of the game’s narrative.
Since 2019, however, there’s hardly been a peep out of FromSoftware or publisher Bandai Namco about the project, and this has naturally led to countless rumours filling the vacuum. No doubt development has been hampered over the last year or so as the games industry at large has shifted to working from home amidst the pandemic.
Elden Ring is expected to release for PlayStation and Xbox consoles as well as PC.
