FromSoftware has finally debuted the first look at the massive world designed by Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin, Elden Ring. Have a look at it here…
In the days leading up to the Xbox E3 Briefing, BANDAI NAMCO suffered a massive leak with glimpses of their E3 showcase spreading around the internet. Among the leaks was the epic FromSoftware title, Elden Ring, a game directed by FromSoftware President Hidetaka Miyazaki in collaboration with Game of Thrones’ George R. R. Martin.
While Martin had somewhat spilled the beans already, via his “Not a blog”, this leak couldn’t possibly have prepared us for what looks to be another stellar title from the Japanese studio.
Elden Ring is being dubbed as FromSoftware’s largest game to date. It’s a Fantasy Action-RPG game that is set in “a sprawling realm steeped in a rich and bloody history”.
Here’s what Miyazaki, Martin, and BANDAI NAMCO had to say on the project.
“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.” said Hidetaka Miyazaki, President of FromSoftware, Inc. and Game Director for ELDEN RING.
“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.
“ELDEN RING brings together two incredible masters of their respective crafts,” said Chris Gilbert Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “FromSoftware’s talented development team, alongside Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin’s gift of world building and story crafting come together into a truly unique gaming experience.”
Elden Ring will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. No release date has been announced yet.
