The Elden Ring subreddit is a curious place. Within the over two years for the reason that sport’s preliminary reveal, it is maintained ceaseless enthusiasm on a food plan of obscure leaks, hypothesis, and skinny air. Now, because of Geoff Keighley and his Summer time Recreation Fest, there’s an Elden Ring trailer that is nearly three minutes lengthy and a synopsis with plenty of correct nouns in it (presumably a few of George R R Martin’s contribution). We have discovered that the participant goes to be one of many Tarnished, returning to the Lands Between from which they have been exiled to experience round on a horse and stab bosses with large swords. There will probably be not less than two lethal swamps.
The put up in regards to the reveal on r/eldenring has so many upvotes it’s at the moment the quantity three put up on r/all. And the way are the followers responding? With prolonged lore summaries and conspiracy theories? No, largely they’re shouting “LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO” and “HUMANITY RESTORED”.
The memelords have been fast to select up on sure components of the trailer. The carriage being pulled by the 2 large guys with chains is now Geoff Keighley being safely transported again to his home, and the strolling pots, whether or not they turn into enemies just like the mimics in Darkish Souls or just innocent wandering animated furnishings, at the moment are formally known as “Vaseboy” and have already got fanart. As one other put up places it, “That is now a pot boy themed subreddit“. Twitter’s been busy too.
