We cannot say that he has occupied the field a lot since his presentation last June. Once again, to see more of Elden Ring, you have to rely on a leak.
Over the weekend, a YouTube channel posted a probable gameplay capture of Elden Ring. Nothing particularly crunchy to bite into. No epic combat, no never-before-seen creatures, no never-before-seen functionality, and zero spoilers. Just an armored knight with a twirling cloak in a rocky valley, close to a glittering tree and two raptors. Enough for the chain to explode in full flight. Fortunately, as always, the Internet was quick to store and, be it on reddit or Twitter, it is still possible to view it.
Jeff Grubb, always knowledgeable VentureBeat reporter, was among those who decided to share. The version running here is, according to the leaker, the Xbox One. But Grubb thinks not.
Considering the frame rate, I bet this is an Xbox Series X version. This was from a few weeks ago. Obviously, the capture was of poor quality.
Impossible to know precisely without having been in the secret of the gods, obviously.
A little and a lot at the same time
Still, the video reveals something else very interesting about the future game of Hidetaka Miyazaki, in collaboration with George RR Martin. As a Souls fan, you will have noticed: the character in this sequence can jump. Like the hero of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. This is a feature that could be very interesting for those who have walked Lordran in all directions. This novelty has already caused a lot of reaction on the Internet. And perhaps hints at even more surprises before the marketing of this game that many would already like to have in their hands. We remember all the same that he is no longer so far from us. Elden Ring is indeed due out on January 21, 2022 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC.
