At the Xbox E3 briefing, Bandai Namco showed off a few new upcoming games: Tales of Arise, and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. While both those titles looked great, neither of them seemed to bring the level of excitement that the Elden Ring announcement trailer brought. This is for a couple reasons though, people love FromSoftware, and people love Game of Thrones. Elden Ring is an all new title developed by FromSoftware in collaboration with Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, and people are hyped for it.
Elden Ring is being touted as FromSoftware’s largest title to date, and is set in a sprawling realm hand crafted by Hidetaka Miyazaka, creator of the Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro IP’s. As is usual FromSoftware fashion, we don’t know a whole lot about the upcoming title, but it will feature unique, horrifying monsters, and be a true, open world game. Hidetaka Miyazaki, President of FromSoftware, Inc. and Game Director for Elden Ring talked about the collaboration with George R.R. Martin.
Collaborating with George R.R. Martin to create the ELDEN RING mythos has been a genuinely delightful experience and a source of wonderful inspiration. The team is working hard to ensure that the world of ELDEN RING will be a fascinating place for players to explore, filled with peril and wonder from its furthest reaches to its lowest depths. This is a FromSoftware title through and through, rich in fantasy and RPG action. We sincerely hope you look forward to it.”
“Building the world of ELDEN RING with Miyazaki-san and his team was a treat! The graphics, mythos, and action-RPG gameplay will deliver an unforgettable experience. I can’t wait for people to see what ELDEN RING has in store for them,” said George R.R. Martin, explaining his excitement for the upcoming game.
Elden Ring will be launching in the Americas for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. We have no info about a release window or even a release year, but we are on the ground at E3 this year, so anything that comes up about the title throughout the week we will keep everyone posted. Check out the new trailer below, and stick with us during the biggest week in gaming.
