Elden Ring is based on the world tree from Norse mythology

Elden Ring is one of the games that were announced during E3 2019, and it is one of the ones that has generated the most hype since that presentation. Now, it seems that new details of Elden Ring have been revealed, among which we have new concept art, and new possible leaks. Do not forget that they are rumors, and should be taken for what they are.

The alleged leaks occurred in a post on Reddit, where one of the users uploaded a post that contained a numbered list of all possible Elden Ring leaks. According to the user, Elden Ring and its world would be based on the world tree from Norse mythology, and its gameplay would be oriented to the Dark Souls style.

Today, a Chinese soulsborne series content creator named Longqi Bangbangtang  shares some information about Elden Ring in his video (https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV17V411b7fY), Unfortunately, the video has been deleted. Here’s the summary.

  1. Two concept arts are revealed. Check this (https://www.reddit.com/r/Eldenring/comments/kmbfj4/leaked_concept_arts_from_a_reputable_chinese/ ) for details.

  2. The game world is based on the world tree from Norse mythology, and also references something from Celtic mythology.

  3. The gameplay is similar to Dark Souls, but the map is much larger, includes dynamic weather and day/night alternation. Imagine you fight with a Boss from day to night, he said, and the weather changes from sunny to thunderous.

  4. The modeling of enemies is more complex, and there will be cthulu-style enemies similar to bloodborne.

  5. Remember that red hair giant (Look up at sky, it burns)?  He was badly wounded in a battle. His faction is characterized by red hair and the use of large weapons. There is also a faction characterized by white hair. The two biggest factions he has known so far seem to have come from the same ancestor, but have split up eventually.

  6. The guy with a lot of hands at the beginning of the 2019 trailer is probably an NPC.

  7.  That crestfallen dude will appear again.

  8. Waifu (similar to fire keeper)

  9. Patches may not appear, or not appear in human form (bloodborne spider).

  10. There are characters like Gael and the xanthous king.

  11. The game development stage has been completed in the first half of 2020 and is now in the polishing stage. The game will be released in 2021, he’s pretty sure. It’s possible to see a new trailer after the Japanese New Year.

The world of Elden Ring

Elden Ring would also have a dynamic day and night cycle, and its open-world much larger than the worlds of Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Furthermore, the Elden Ring’s enemies would be much more like the latter’s, with a rather sinister Cthulhu touch.

To expand information about the world of Elden Ring, the user adds that said world would be dominated by factions, of which two would be the most important, and would be led by giants with red and white hair. On the other hand, the game would take a lot of inspiration from the Tree of Life, which is one of the pillars of Norse culture.

At the end of 2020, rumors emerged that the Elden Ring had already completed its development, and according to the user who uploaded the information to Reddit, the development of the game was finished at the beginning of 2020 and the rest of the time has been used to improve it. . However, considering how little we’ve seen of the game, this seems unlikely. After all, these are just hearsay and should be taken with the utmost caution.
