This is a brand new Elden Ring story trailer

A new Elden Ring trailer landed during the game’s grand prize, which may be the strongest evidence of George RR Martin’s involvement. This is a CG event — the most recent public network test has satisfied the greatest appetite for game graphics — but it seems to have inherited the grand scale that made the Game of Thrones TV adaptation so popular.

In other words, this is a story trailer, but it is provided in the inscrutable style typical of From Software. A “long ago”, on a night of “winter mist”, the most important Elden Ring was stolen (which is bad) and the demigod began to die (which was also bad). To make matters worse, the Elden Ring was returned, but it was broken, which seemed to rule out any successful diplomatic efforts.
