Elden Ring won't be out until February 25, but it looks like spoilers are already starting to hit the Internet. The opening cinematic has already been posted online from players who managed to snag an early copy of the year's most anticipated title.

Several screenshots for the game have also been posted to social media sites such as Reddit. These shots show off portions of the game world that have not been shown in any official media release.

Others have taken to uploading gameplay videos on YouTube already. Still others have started to stream the game on Twitch. Thus far, it seems as though FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have been quick to remove these videos and streams as best they can.

It seems as though a lot of the footage and images are from people who have obtained early copies of the game from retailers selling the physical copy ahead of the street date.

This is the latest leak for the game with another leak happening just a few weeks back. At the time, screenshots from the in-depth character creator for Elden Ring were shared online.

As far as official coverage is concerned, it won't be long now before reviews and streams are allowed to go live. The review embargo lifts on February 23 and the video/streaming embargo lifts a day later on the 24th.

The official Elden Ring Twitter also posted some new screenshots today. One was included at the top of this article while the rest can be found below in the embedded tweet.
