KEY POINTS

  • The game is penned by "Game of Thrones" writer George R.R. Martin
  • A new leak offers fans a sneak peek at the game's graphical quality
  • "Elden Ring" is set to release on February 25

Ahead of its official release next month, a clip showing the character creator of the most-awaited game "Elden Ring" has leaked online with some fans pleased that it is more in-depth than those found in "Bloodborne" and "Dark Souls III."

The character creator was leaked online by the content creator and YouTuber who goes by the name ER-SA. The leaked clip features six minutes worth of tweaking and tinkering with the character creator of "Elden Ring."

There are different classes and settings and some missing text, which is most likely due to the video taken from the game's incomplete build. Fans can also see a lot of sliders to customize the character's appearance.

The leaked video description states that fans can "easily create a good looking character now." In the video, gamers can also see the character creator's different options with the user maxing out all the sliders and selecting absurd skin color.

According to reports, the leaked clip was taken from the recent closed network test of the game, which took place between Nov. 12 and 14, 2021. Interestingly, despite this, the character really looks good and appears more human compared to those FromSoftware previously released.

Many commenters shared their amazement at the improvements the game developer has made on the character creator, particularly in terms of textures and models. Game creator and director Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed recently that the graphical quality of "Demon Souls Remake" gave a lot of pressure on the team behind "Elden Ring" and its effort to make the game look fantastic.

Since the game will release on multiple platforms, it could mean that the game will not look as crisp as the "Demon Souls" on PS5. However, seeing the character creator, one can safely say that FromSoftware stepped up in terms of the upcoming game's graphical features.

"Elden Ring" is now the most waitlisted game on Steam after it snatched the throne from "Dying Light 2." The game, which was penned by "Game of Thrones" writer George R.R. Martin, is slated to release on February 25.

It will be released on various gaming platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 5 and Xbox One.
