Just a few days ago, The Game Awards 2020 unveiled a series of trailers for the long-awaited game, including the new Perfect Dark, Back 4 Blood like Left 4 Dead, and Dreamy Open Roads. But for some, the most notable games have rarely appeared. FromSoftware’s latest project, Eldenling, won the most anticipated game award but didn’t receive any new details or trailers.

Temporarily, Wooper-themed memes dominate subreddit, and mods now create Wooper user flares to compete with Hollow flares.
In addition to the striking stream of fan art that the community calls “fake folklore,” some fans are imagining what the actual game will include based on FromSoft’s previous work. , Some users speculate that this will debut in a fictitious new folklore at the Taipei Game Show on January 28, 2021. An unconfirmed hint from VentureBeat reporter Jeff Grubb, allegedly a leak from ResetEra, seems to support this rumor, but it’s not concrete. Elden Ring subreddit users replied to the thread with “oooooh”, a meme sound from the original trailer that fans use to show excitement. Other users are skeptical. “Eldenling will debut at the WWE Royal Rumble in January.”
