FromSoftware just tweeted a very peculiar image for the Japanese game developer’s upcoming action-RPG Elden Ring.

“In the wake of the Shattering, a blight claimed the mind of many a creature and man. Beware their chaotic frenzy,” the tweet reads.

The image accompanying this post shows what appears to be a dead knight. Standing above the corpse is a humanoid figure wearing a strange metal helmet.

The helmet looks like something you might put on a prisoner at an insane asylum in the Dark Ages. One hole for the mouth, one for just one eye. The madman looks as though he’s staring at a camera, defying whoever might be watching.

The dead knight, meanwhile, looks like he’s wearing the Elite Knight armor set from Dark Souls.

How bizarre.

Elden Ring heads to PC and consoles in January of 2022. I hope it’s every bit as challenging as the Souls games. No easy mode!
