As the E3 2019 approaches, more and more leaks occur. The latest is a big one that could have prevented a big surprise during the Xbox press conference on Sunday. A new report allegedly confirms the alleged collaboration between From Software (Dark Souls, Sekiro) and George RR Martin, author of the Song of Ice and Fire series, based on Game of Thrones. This new leak indicates that the game is called Elden Ring and the first artwork was released online. We know the following before the official announcement.
According to Daniel "ZhugeEX" Ahmed who has a reputation for reliably confirming leaked information before official confirmation, Elden Ring is a "new world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki and George RR Martin" for Xbox One, PS4 and PC are available. Miyazaki is best known for his work as president of From Software, where he has developed Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro.
While details of what the game will consist of are not known, we have a well-known image of what appears to be a teaser or a key art. Look below.
Earlier rumors about Elden Ring (formerly known as GR or Great Rune) described the game as a cosmopolitan experience exploring various kingdoms. If you kill the rulers behind each kingdom, you can unlock their abilities or supernatural powers.
The above image supports this rumor by presenting a huge ring of light that encompasses several smaller rings and resembles a circular crown surrounding several smaller ones. At the top of the picture, there seems to be an energy pool dripping straight to the larger ring, potentially drawing additional energy from the smaller rings he has to go through. Perhaps Elden Ring sees your hero drawing power from a mysterious source to reinforce this power in ways other than the other rulers. Although this is a speculation on our part, it would certainly fit into From Software's storytelling, as a similar backstory is used for High Lord Wolnir of Dark Souls III – a king who traveled the land and drew strength from the wealthy people he crushed , 19659002] The rumors say that Elden Ring has been in development for three years, making it one of the two games that From Software has been working on after Sekiro: Shadow's The Twice. The game will be officially unveiled at Microsoft's press conference E3 2019, which allegedly marks the company's debut of the next-generation Xbox console and the fourth Fable game. We will certainly know it on Sunday.
This Eldenringleck was one of several rapid-fire leaks in which the publisher Bandai Namco was involved. In a short time we also learned about a Ni-no-Kuni-remaster and the next Tales of Game, Tales of Arise.
