Elden Ring - Seems Legit?

A new screenshot of what appears to be an unknown souls-like game has surfaced over on 4chan in an Elden Ring thread. The screenshot features a character wearing a sword and a clock, walking towards a cloud of fire.

We know 4chan probably is not the best place for reliable info, but sometimes, anonymous users actually post legit content, leaking screenshots of the early game builds and other info. Yes, most of the leaks are usually fake but as we said, sometimes, they are true.

Today, we have a new screenshot which surfaced in the Elden Ring thread . The screenshot, which you can check out in the images above and below, features a cloaked character with a sword, walking towards a cloud of dancing flames. Now, we do not know if the screenshot is legit, but isn't this as Dark Souls as it gets?

Elden Ring fans over on 4chan and Reddit are stilly discussing whether the leak is indeed real or not. Some tried reverse searching the image but could not find any results, which is a bit odd. At the time of writing, the leak is yet to be debunked and we will update the article when more info about the screenshot emerges. Of course, until then, you should take this one with a grain of salt.

Over the last week, we had a couple of Elden Ring rumours and leaks, which could suggest that a reveal is close but as you may know, some reliable sources confirmed there will be no Elden Ring reveals in 2020. 

Still, we hope this is not the case and that we'll finally get to see some gameplay in the upcoming months.

Elden Ring is still in development and it's announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game is probably a cross-gen title so it should also arrive to PS5 and Xbox Series X | S.
