Fans are arguing over whether a screenshot of a man and a leaping horse from a trailer for Elden Ring is depicting the horse’s privates.
Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment’s highly anticipated video game Elden Ring has fans arguing over the game’s horses–specifically over their genitals. The action RPG will allow players to mount a horse and explore the game’s world on horseback. Players are now wondering if Elden Ring‘s horse mechanics will be similar to Red Dead Redemption 2’s realistic horse mechanics.
As Elden Ring is developer FromSoftware’s biggest game to date, it’s no surprise that the title has been delayed. Despite having an initial release date of January 21, 2022, the game’s launch has been pushed out to February 25, 2022. The game was delayed a couple of weeks so that developers would have extra time to make sure Elden Ring‘s mechanics are functioning smoothly. This may not come as much of a surprise since Hidetaka Miyazaki, the president of FromSoftware and the director of Elden Ring, stated that the 2020 remake of Demon’s Souls put pressure on the developers of Elden Ring to get the upcoming game’s graphics just right. Now fans are wondering if the graphics are to blame for a interesting aspect that one fan has spotted in a trailer for the title.
As reported by Kotaku, Reddit user asiuhds posted a screenshot from Elden Ring’s trailer to the Elden Ring subreddit. The now-deleted post was tagged with spoiler and not safe for work tags in addition to being blurred. Once clicked on, the NSFW image is revealed to be a pixelated screenshot of a man on a rearing horse with a red circle around what looks to be more than average-size genitals. In the comments of the post, fans are arguing over whether what is depicted is in fact the horse’s privates or just the other foot of the man straddling the horse.
Though the jury is out on whether the circled appendage belongs to the human or the Elden Ring horse, fans couldn’t stop themselves from making several dirty puns and other comments. If the blurry body part does belong to the horse, it wouldn’t be too surprising, as the recently released ESRB rating for the game is Mature. With a Mature rating, the title will contain content appropriate only for players aged 17 and up, including partial nudity.
If the lively online argument about horses’ genitals in Elden Ring shows anything, it demonstrates that fans are still excited for the game to be officially launched. At least the argument will be laid to rest once the action RPG is released and players can take a look for themselves.
Elden Ring will release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on February 25th, 2022.
