Any hope for a gameplay trailer at gamescom?
I hope so. Gamescom is doing a "Opening Night Live show" for the first time.

“This will give gamers around the world an overview of what to expect during Gamescom week. The brand new show will feature announcements from major publishers and independent developers as well as world premiers with new footage and guest appearances by stars from the international games industry.

Well if Elden Ring is prepped for 2020 launch, it would make sense to have a gameplay trailer this Gamescom.
if not, well Sony E3 with 2021 Q1 it is.

Do you think it will just be a gameplay trailer or a playable demo like Sekiro? I recall it receiving a Best of Gamescom prize. Well deserved.

If it's there then gameplay trailer and vertical slice showcased by the dev/publisher is my guess. If there is a playable demo like Sekiro then great for those attending. I won't be able to attend Gamescom this year :(

Hello guys, I've been lurking for ages, and by ages I mean years. But since From games are very important to me and Elden Ring seems to be a real magnum opus (as Omni says) I decided to register an account. I'd like this thread to be more lively and while I know you are all seeking more actual news we all have speculation so far, at least until gamescom. But my two cents on this game are (imo, just speculation)
- It will release in the usual march/april window of next year
- Celtic/Finnish and bits of Norse vibes
- Trying to decipher Omni's hype bomb a bit more because I'm sure it hides more clues
- I'd like Omni to be more active here, I mean, granted he has his own life and stuff to do but here we are thirsty for more insight
Late to the party, but welcome!

This is one of the games I am super hyped for.

Waited 7 years for Cyberpunk 2077, I don't mind waiting for a few years for this one.

Looks like Elden Ring will not be playable at Gamescom, making Elden Ring the first Fromsoftware game not to be playable at the show since DS2 (2013). BB, DS3, Sekiro were all playable at Gamescom, and had release windows beforehand at E3. https://cheapdigitaldownload.com/gamescom-2019-lineup-revealed-by-bandai-namco/. The game also did not have a E3 behind closed doors demo, which those games had.

That doesn't mean a gameplay trailer, and gameplay demo won't be released, you never know.

That's surprising.

I guess I am buying one of the early 2020 heavy hitters after all, I was sure they'd all have to wait for this.

Not exactly disappointing, though. They should take as long as they need.

Aw, big oof.

I almost self convinced myself that we were going to see hot stuff @ Gamescom, but Bandai not including it in its lineup... oof.

Tales of Arise, which is going to be released in 2020, isn't on the list either, so I'm optimistic about ER to be realised in Q1 next year.

Might still be a trailer for it especially at that Opening Night Live. What are the odds Sony snags a trailer for their State of Play in the future?

Bamco probably wants to give a last big push to code vein so it makes sense that they wouldnt let us play it.
This has nothing to do with them showing a trailer tho. I still think the chances are high.
Either here or at tgs

This.
They are self-killing Code Vein if they release a playable demo for Elden Ring. At this point I even doubt there will be a trailer but a man can dream. Still interested in that edgy anime tiddie game, it will make a decent playground while I wait for Elden Ring along with MHW Iceborne.

I can see the game getting an internal delay. Early months of 2020 is stacked anyways.

So not listed by Bamco themselves, still, does that totally rule out a new trailer? I want to believe it's still a 2020 game, like Jason said on Twitter.

Tales of Arise, which is going to be released in 2020, isn't on the list either, so I'm optimistic about ER to be realised in Q1 next year.
Oh man, that's another game I really want to see more of. Trailer looked great.

This is so obviously a Q2 2020 game, I never understood the Q1 2020 crowd. We'll probably get some gameplay at E3 '20 with it playable on the show floor, some more stuff at Gamescom, and release a month or two later exactly like Dark Souls.

To me, Elden Ring represents an evolution for FromSoftware. It's their first open-world game, their largest game world and production to date. It's been in development for a while but I don't think it's 8 months from launch ready, y'know? Otherwise we definitely would have heard news of gameplay. While Sekiro may have been a nice little side joint, Elden Ring is what's going to define FromSoftware going into the next decade so it makes sense that they'll leave it in the oven for a while. I don't think the Bloodborne/Dark Souls III/Sekiro announce-to-Gamescom gameplay-to-launch applies here. This is a special circumstance bestowed upon their most important game - or at least the game that seems to be shaking up the formula the most.

i hope it's sooner rather than later obviously but please just give me more info, a trailer, SOMETHING
Yeah my problem is not the release date but rather that we don't have a proper trailer yet.. freaking CGI.

Why annoucing it so early then? And by Q2 you are confusing it with second half?

Imagine if, on top of not getting Sekiro DLC, we have to wait until 2021 to play ER.



We need Nioh 2 to save us from this unbearable uncertainty.

FromSoft is gonna push me into the brink of insanity. To the point that I'm actually considering playing The Surge.

Did you guys ever bother taking a look at this """leak"""?


Most of the things stated sound pretty likely... too much that it sounds like a safe bet more than a leak, but still an interesting reading.

All this 2021 talk is madness
I never expected them to have a demo at gamescom anyways, not sure why this is causing most people to reconsider it for fall 2020 when just weeks ago we were all set on Q1.
Regardless, i hope they take as much time as they need. This really sounds like their next big thing and I have a feeling they will be able to capture that magic sense of wonder the original ds had.
Theres also a chance this was originally Q1 and they moved it to fall in order to stay away from most AAAs releasing that period
Whatever it ends up being, i think we'll get our answer pretty soon. If theres no trailer at gc or tgs then i too am set on trailer at vgas and released at Q2 2020

Wait some people here thinl From is gonna announce a game and go radio silent for a whole year?

I think people is starting to get too fixated with the idea of ER being some kind of higher tier game compared to DS. This ain't gonna be Skyrim, From isn't gonna take 5 years doing this.
