It’s basically a Souls Game of Thrones
I know what you’re thinking: “SideQuesting, you guys just ruined the ending of Game of Thrones for me.”
Oh, oops, that was a few weeks back.
This time we’re ruining an E3 surprise. Well, actually *we’re* not ruining it, we’re just reporting on the ruining of said surprise. There have been plenty of rumors about George RR Martin working on a game with Japan’s FromSoftware, and the author even said as much in a recent blog post.
Now we might know what that probably is.
Thanks to some VERY BAD security on Bandai Namco’s website (namely: the company posting everything to a public space) the logo and information for the game, named Elden Ring, has been revealed. Accompanying the logo was the following info, via Gematsu:
Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware, Inc. and Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc., is a fantasy action-RPG adventure set within a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki—creator of the influential Dark Souls video game series; and George R.R. Martin—author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date.From Gematsu
Hidetaka Miyazaki, President and Game Director of FromSoftware Inc. known for directing critically-acclaimed games in beloved franchises including Armored Core, Dark Souls, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
George R.R. Martin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the acclaimed series A Song of Ice and Fire – A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast For Crows, and A Dance with Dragons. As a writer-producer, he has worked on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and pilots that were never made.
The game is rumored to be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference. While we don’t know anything beyond that blurb, it leaves the door open for trailers, images, and gameplay news to still be a surprise.
