Elden Ring Launch Trailer Spoiler: Has a Gun

We’ve learned a lot about Elden Ring over the past few weeks through class recaps, previews, ill-timed leaks, and tons of memes. Today, we get the final piece of the pre-release puzzle: the Elden Ring release trailer.

It’s awesome: bombastic, overworked, loud, filled with strange creatures, bizarre fantasy landscapes, and the false solemnity that inevitably emerges from booming voices and choral chants. FromSoftware’s recent request to players not to break anything has us wondering, is it even possible to break Souls games? My feeling, after watching this trailer (more than twice, for the record) is a hard “no”.
