FromSoftware’s Elden Ring is bringing adventures for the brave, the bold, and the gallant. Bandai Namco, one of the world’s leading developers and publishers in interactive entertainment, have made the announcement on June 9, 2019. They are overseeing the publication of this project, which includes some of the most celebrated authors in the world.
Elden Ring is an upcoming action RPG which includes Hidetaka Miyazaki, the creator of Dark Souls game series, and G.R.R. Martin, the world-famous writer of A Song of Ice and Fire novel series, which were adapted into the critically acclaimed TV series Game of Thrones. As it stands from this point, for FromSoftware Elden Ring is to mark the largest project they’ve worked on ever, especially considering the names of the people included.
When you add the creator of such an influential game series like Dark Souls and you bring in the author of the New-York best-selling books, there’s no telling what might come out of it. Hidetaka Miyazaki is FromSoftware’s president and he directed Elden Ring.
Miyazaki said: “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.”
Every single one of the G.R.R. Martin’s original novels from the series A Song of Ice and Fire remained on the New York’s best-selling list for weeks. Regarding his partaking on Elden Ring, Martin said: “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.”
Elden Ring is nourished and will be brought to life with joint efforts of these two giants under the wings of BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. and their Senior Vice President of Sales, Mr. Chris Gilbert, said: “Elden Ring brings together two incredible masters of their respective crafts. 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.”
