What looks like the new Elden Ring gameplay footage is currently rounding on social media and seems to give you a glimpse of how the game runs outside the official trailer.
The 32nd clip sits on a rocky hill near the broken castle, with spectral trees rising in the distance. After rotating the camera to make the environment look clearer, the character jumps to the top of the hill and a pair of eagles glow in the air like feathers.

The footage is allegedly captured on Xbox One, but its source remains unconfirmed. Assuming it’s legal, the new footage makes Elden Ring feel better, especially in terms of how the protagonist handles the jumps.
Otherwise, it’s only a few months from the release date, but I still know relatively little about Elden Ring. In an interview with IGN, Hidetaka Miyazaki described the open world and gameplay, but little else is shown about the official footage.
The best games of 2021
Anyway, Elden Ring is highly anticipated, especially as Dark Souls and Bloodborne are some of the best action games ever made. With the Elden Ring Ring released early next year, we hope to see more of this open-world Soulsborne game soon.
Elden Ring is currently scheduled to be released on January 21, 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC. Here’s an impression of Elden Ring’s first 15 minutes of gameplay.
