FromSoftware’s Elden Ring finally came out of hiding on Thursday, after two years of deafening silence concerning the new journey from Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin. It seemed spectacular, in a next-gen Darkish Souls form of means, with its gigantic lightning-chucking dragons, double-jumping horses, a spider product of fingers, a brand-new Tall Girl to obsess over, and, after all, these pots.
Oh, these pots.
Elden Ring’s first gameplay trailer barely hinted on the existence of anthropomorphic pots, however they’ve turning into a quiet sensation since they have been revealed. It appears everybody — there are dozens of us! — loves the little pot with legs and arms, and the marginally bigger pot with legs and arms. In case you blacked out throughout yesterday’s Elden Ring reveal, right here’s a have a look at one in movement:
It’s not a lot, however in an action-packed and mood-setting trailer, it was good to see a wee sentient pot simply cruising round. The pot lad, or vase boi as some are calling it (we’ve requested Bandai Namco what their official identify is), instantly provides off vibes much like the irascible Mushroom Folks and Mimics of Darkish Souls, in that they’re easy objects, loving and refreshingly redesigned. One can solely hope that the strolling containers of Elden Ring might be equally surly, and result in gamers dying unexpectedly. In spite of everything, it’s only a pot, proper? How might that one-hit kill you?
Unsurprisingly, fan artwork of Elden Ring’s pots is already flourishing.
And eventually, a triple shot of the ornery, ring-hungry pot boy from artist Mighty Ybaba.
