While the debut of Fromsoftware’s Elden Ring is still a few months away, Bandai Namco isn’t letting us forget about the game. As if we could. We still have the upcoming Elden Ring closed network test that will take place this month, and now the publisher will host a 15-minute preview of Elden Ring gameplay on November 4, 2021.
Starting at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET, you’ll be able to check out this 15-minutes of Elden Ring gameplay on the Bandai Namco Europe YouTube Page. Though I’m sure that once this gets a VOD, it will be available on all Bandai Namco YouTube pages. Not to mention the scores of other channels that will host this gameplay footage.
Come to think of it, back during August 2021, Bandai Namco invited several outlets and influencers to play Elden Ring. However, those who did get a chance to play the game were sworn not to talk about the game (NDA). The Elden Ring gameplay preview is likely footage from that event.
I’m pretty excited about this, as we still haven’t seen much new gameplay from the game. Sure, keeping things quiet is a good way to keep us all in suspense, but it’s also a fast way to have the gaming community lose interest in a game as well. I’m sure Bandai Namco doesn’t have anything to worry about on that front, but giving us a short look at the game can’t hurt either. As for what we can expect, that’s anyone’s guess, and honestly, at this point, I don’t care. I just want to play the game, so I’ll take anything I can get.
Elden Ring will be released on February 25, 2022, after being delayed from its original January 21, 2022 release date.
