New Elden Ring Screenshots Paint a Pretty Terrifying Picture
Fans are left wondering how it all connects now that more information is available about Elden Ring after its appearance at Gamecom 2021. Fans might not be satisfied with the information available, despite FromSoftware’s history and George R. R. Martin working together to create this game.
Geoff Keighley also shared four screenshots of Elden Ring via Twitter. This gives fans more material to speculate about the Lands Between. Each image he shared suggests that the game’s epic setting may also include terrifying elements to keep players interested.
FromSoftware and George R. R. Martin teamed up to create a collection of amazing creatures for their fans. If people had to guess which foes Elden Ring would include Dragons, they were likely to choose this species. However, the first screenshot released by Keighley is most certainly more impressive than any of our expectations.
This image is amazing at conveying the feeling of movement and how the dragon is so close to the knight. Although dragons are often depicted as larger than humans, this image emphasizes the differences in size. This also sets high standards for Elden Ring’s gameplay.
The glowing Erdtree is another highlight of this screenshot. This image alone can show that the game will have some unique weapons and tough boss fights. The recurring boss of Elden Ring appears to be a dragon.
Trolls that make you shiver
Although trolls are common in fantasy settings, Elden Ring‘s Trolls seem to be something special. Trolls look more supernatural in this second screenshot, almost as if they are undead. It is intimidating because of the way the larger troll’s ribcage and boney arm are showing, making them look even more like Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth.
The screenshot also shows three smaller trolls. The larger troll appears to be holding a wand that emits a blue halo. This might indicate that the Elden Ring trolls can be distinguished from their counterparts by using magic and fighting in groups.
The game may feature scenes set in ruins, which will help to create a dark world and highlight Eldenring‘s dark lore. Magic seems to be a force that will appear with both the main characters and foes, so enemies should be complex on both the battlefield and in the story.
The third image shows the most obvious thing. It is the golden sigil. Although it is more elaborate than Eldenring‘s cover, it still contains the same golden light. The sigil has three rings, just like the one on the game’s covers. It also contains what appears to be Eritrea. FromSoftware has not revealed the origin of the screenshots, so the image will keep fans guessing.
The meaning of the screenshot is unclear. It could be related to the Elden Ring being broken, or it may show a magical ritual. This image, in any case, is helpful as it shows some of the Elden Ring‘s mythology and dark scene. In the foreground, a monk is seen kneeling before the sigil. However, two goblin-like creatures appear from the back of this room.
The other screenshots show known fantasy characters that have been reinterpreted to Elden Ring. However, the last one from Keighley shows a completely unknown character. These are among the most disturbing things we have seen so far.
Their bodies look a lot like bells, and they seem heavy and metallic. However, their crying faces with headpieces make them even more disturbing. The most notable feature of the creatures is their long-chained, blood-stained pendulum arms. Although the image doesn’t show Elden Ring characters in combat, they are so well-made that it is easy to see how they will fight.
The background also reveals Elden Ring. The fortress-like appearance of the spiked structures in front of the cliffs is reminiscent of tents or fortresses. In the background, a ragged banner featuring the Erdtree is visible. Further away, it appears that bodies are suspended from a wooden structure. It is impossible to guess where these figures are located on Elden Ring‘s map. However, this image shows a lot of worldbuilding.
Bandai Namco has been quiet for some time, but Elden Ring will be released in early 2022. At this point, the world will learn more about these foes as well as the game’s deep lore. Fans can expect more complexity and darkness from the game, considering the images alone.
