Let’s get something straight right up front: there is no news about Elden Ring to report at this time. Developer FromSoftware has been conspicuously tight-lipped about development on the dark RPG game it’s working on in collaboration with A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. Fans desperate for news have gotten to the point that they’re now creating their own boss fights to get stuck on.

The Elden Ring subreddit is a pretty loopy place these days. After the reveal teaser, its regular readers have had very little to go on. The top two news posts on the sub contain the 2019 E3 trailer for Elden Ring, and FromSoft’s recent tweet that essentially said that Elden Ring has not been cancelled. The rest of the sub’s front page is chaos and salt, basically.

There are fans making their own Elden Ring fan games, fans posting gameplay and screenshots from those games, and fans commenting on those posts, pretending they’re commenting on Elden Ring itself. That’s how badly people want to play and talk about Elden Ring. They know it’s fake, but they want Elden Ring content to discuss on Reddit, and so they’re making do with what they have.
