Elden Ring has been one of the most anticipated games for quite a while now. It’s been almost 2 years since the game was announced at E3 2019 and fans have been eagerly waiting to know more about the game. Popular author George R.R. Martin’s association with the game has ensured that even non-gamers are showing a keen interest in the title.
While it has been speculated that more information about the game will surface this year, it seems like fans need to wait for a while before they get to know more about the game. It was expected that the Taipei Game Show will be showcasing the game. However, it has now been officially confirmed that Elden Ring will not be shown during the event.
During a live stream, the official account of Taipei Games Show revealed that “Elden Ring is not at Taipei Game Show 2021.” This is a bummer for quite a number of fans out there as quite recently popular game journalist Jeff Grubb had also been hinting that we might see more of the game quite soon. But that doesn’t seem to be the case here.
Elden Ring has been leading the rumor mill for a while now, with various new information about the game popping up now and then. Quite recently, a Chinese content creator shared some significant chunks of information about the game. While the video has now been removed, here is everything that was mentioned in the video (thanks to Reddit user kevinD26)
The game world is based on the world tree from Norse mythology, and also references something from Celtic mythology.
The gameplay is similar to Dark Souls, but the map is much larger, includes dynamic weather and day/night alternation. Imagine you fight with a Boss from day to night, he said, and the weather changes from sunny to thunderous.
The modeling of enemies is more complex, and there will be cthulu-style enemies similar to bloodborne.
Remember that red hair giant (Look up at sky, it burns)? He was badly wounded in a battle. His faction is characterized by red hair and the use of large weapons. There is also a faction characterized by white hair. The two biggest factions he has known so far seem to have come from the same ancestor, but have split up eventually.
The guy with a lot of hands at the beginning of the 2019 trailer is probably an NPC.
That crestfallen dude will appear again.
Waifu (similar to fire keeper)
Patches may not appear, or not appear in human form (bloodborne spider).
There are characters like Gael and the xanthous king.
The game development stage has been completed in the first half of 2020 and is now in the polishing stage. The game will be released in 2021, he’s pretty sure. It’s possible to see a new trailer after the Japanese New Year.
With so much uncertainty around the game, it’s difficult to predict when we will actually get to see more about the game. For now, most of the rumors have turned out to be false and it remains to be seen when the game will release.
