Leaked Elden Ring trailer footage appears online, shows first glimpse of horseback gameplay

First announced at the Xbox E3 2019 showcase, it’s pretty safe to say that Elden Ring is one of the most mysterious, most hyped upcoming games, especially for hardcore audiences. Developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco, with a world and lore created in partnership with author George. R. R. Martin, this game is notable for just how much we don’t know about it, as aside from a handful of tidbits shared in interviews, the statement above and a CGI reveal trailer are all we’ve gotten over the last year and a half.

That changed today, as a few snippets from a trailer appear to have leaked. While the footage is of the classic “shaky camera held offscreen” angle, several notable journalists and analysts with proven access to sensitive information, such as Jason Schreier at Bloomberg, as well as Andy Robinson at VGC, have confirmed the footage is real. So, if you want to have your first glimpse of an Elden Ring gameplay trailer, take a look below.

The blurry snippets show off horseback riding, which we did previously know about, as well as a fire-breathing dragon, a staple of FromSoftware titles.

Hopefully, the circulation of this trailer for internal use means that Elden Ring will be shown in a proper, official capacity sometime in the near future, though given how many games are being delayed out of 2021, we’ll have to wait and see. Elden Ring was initially announced for Xbox One, PC and PS4, though it seems almost certain to also receive enhanced support on the newest consoles, the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PS5.
