Among the titles revealed at E3 2019 that attracted the most attention was ELDEN RING, a new adventure with the hallmark of FromSoftware. Since it was shown at that event, it was expected that we would know more about it in the near future or in the worst case, in 2020. Unfortunately, considering that it is already December of this year, it seems that some fans are already resigned and believe that they will not see anything related to the game in 2020. However, there is still hope and clues suggest we will see a new trailer for it before the end of 2021, as the game would be almost finished.
As on previous occasions, a new event fires fan imaginations and gives hope that practically any game will be announced in it. In some previous events, clues made me believe that ELDEN RING would be present, but it never happened. The Game Awards 2020 is just around the corner and apparently, this event holds a special surprise for fans of FromSoftware’s work.
We say this because recently industry whistleblower with a good track record for early announcements Imran Khan recently hinted on Twitter that we might see more of ELDEN RING very soon, as according to him there are “reasonable clues” pointing to Bandai Namco revealing a new trailer. Specifically, Khan mentioned that he follows marketing personnel on Twitter who have retweeted The Game Awards 2020 messages in strange ways, suggesting that the title will be featured at the event.
I follow some Bandai Namco marketing people on Twitter who have been retweeting (and in some cases, unretweeting) some TGA stuff in weirdly coy ways.

ELDEN RING WOULD BE ALMOST FINISHED BY NOW
This may not convince you too much, but you should also know that the renowned modder and informant of titles related to Soulsborne series, Lance McDonald, mentioned in a stream of the remake of Demon’s Souls that supposedly ELDEN RING is already finished and that Bandai Namco would only be waiting the right time to show it.
According to McDonald, FromSoftware is hiring staff to do tasks that a developer performs when she is in the final phase of developing a game. Additionally, the informant mentioned that he knows some of these workers, who were the ones who shared these details with him.
Either way, we remind you that here at LEVEL UP we will have coverage of the event, which will take place next Thursday, December 10. So we invite you to stay informed.
