Bandai Namco announced a new IP from publisher FromSoftware titled Elden Ring, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC at an unannounced date.
Elden Ring set in a world created by Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin where danger and discovery lurk around every corner in the largest game from the developer to date.
President and Game Director of FromSoftware Miyazaki-san is best known for his work on some of the most popular IPs in video games including Armored Core, Dark Souls, and most recently Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The creator will now join minds with George R.R. Martin who just wrapped up production on the final season of the television adaptation of his best selling fantasy book series Game of Thrones.
“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.”
FromSoftware titles are usually seen as overly difficult and just recently have been criticized for not being accessible to players who require lower difficulty settings. Following the backlash, the developer still has not implemented the new difficulty mode and has not commented on the subject. The game also sold more than 2 million copies worldwide.
