I think by listing Marin as one of the writers what they really mean is they are paying him a bunch of money so they can use his name for publicity and street cred and getting others to do most of the actual work. This is the same way movies bandy Spielberg's name around for promotion when really he was just a consultant.

A new world created by Hidetaka Miyazak and Gerorge R.R. Martin

ELDEN RING, developed by FromSoftwareInc., is a fantasy action-RPG adventure set withn a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki - creator of the influential Dark Souls video game series; and George R.R. Martin - author of the 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.


Interview with Hidetaka Miyazaki about Elden Ring, more at the link -

W: What genre do you think Elden Ring will fall under?
M: It is a third-person action RPG. Unlike Sekiro, which has a heavy focus on action, Elden Ring puts more focus on RPG elements. Of course, we are not shying away from the fun of responsive melee-based combat, and these elements will be present as well.

Excited for this given that it basically sounds like more Dark Souls in all but name rather than Sekiro, but that trailer didn't really do anything for me.

Aye. The opening bit worked for me and then I just thought it all seemed very familiar and a bit generic. Even perhaps a bit twee. I'm sure it'll be good though.

the DS formula is getting tiring, but I don't care if the game itself "looks" like a souls game if that makes sense. It's From's style, so why shouldn't they own it. I'm mostly excited about the premise based on prior rumours. The idea of this huge world you have to conquer sounds epic af.

PostRe: Elden Ring - FromSoftware - GRR Martin - Lots of new info from Miyazaki

“Elden Ring is a third-person action RPG with a fantasy setting. The gameplay is not so far from Dark Souls. That doesn’t mean that the gameplay will be identical, but you could say that Elden Ring belongs to the same genre.”

According to Miyazaki, Elden Ring goes beyond simple changes to the game systems. By adding larger and more open environments, he believes that the game will evolve on a greater scale.

“With a larger world, new systems and action mechanics inevitably become necessary. In that sense, I think that Elden Ring is a more natural evolution of Dark Souls.”

“While the narrow and complex dungeons of our previous games were indeed interconnected, Elden Ring’s environments will be much more open and vast. The more extensive world will form the base of Elden Ring’s gameplay, and its mechanics are designed with that type of environment in mind.”

The dungeons of Miyazaki’s previous games were interconnected in the style of a Metroidvania game, but this time there is a vast field between them. According to Miyazaki, the inclusion of such an environment was decided for the sake of showing the story and world on a larger scale, to increase the freedom and depth of exploration, and to create more variation for battles.

You can get around the world on a horse, and you can fight enemies while riding.

Miyazaki wants to offer depth to exploration in Elden Ring in a way that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice did not.

Do not expect vibrant villages and towns. According to Miyazaki, “Villages will be the dark dungeon-like ruins that you have come to expect from us. Creating a more open game is a big challenge for us. If we were to add towns on top of that, it would become a bit too much, so we decided to create an open-world-style game focused on what we are best at.”

Miyazaki studied various open-world games as reference for Elden Ring‘s world, while at the same time not being too heavily influenced by a specific work, to make a game that is true to the DNA of a From Software game.

Regarding the collaboration with George R.R. Martin, Miyazaki said, “It all started with me being a fan of Mr. Martin’s works. A Song of Ice and Fire and its drama adaptation Game of Thrones are both masterpieces. I am also very fond of Fevre Dream and Tuf Voyaging.”

Miyazaki got in touch with Martin for a meeting, which he found to be surprisingly easy to do. From there, the two clicked and Martin was all in for Miyazaki’s idea of making a game together.

According to Miyazaki, Martin did not write the main story of Elden Ring. Rather, he wrote the events that happened long before the era the player explores—in other words, the “mythology” of the world. Miyazaki said that there were two reasons he had Martin write the mythology rather than the main story. “Storytelling in video games—at least the way we do it at From Software—comes with a lot of restrictions for the writer. I didn’t think it was a good idea to have Martin write within those restrictions. By having him write about a time the player isn’t directly involved in, he is free to unleash his creativity in the way he likes. Furthermore, as From Software we didn’t want to create a more linear and story-driven experience for Elden Ring. Both issues could be solved by having Martin write about the world’s history instead.” According to Miyazaki, the excitement, drama, and depth in the mythology written by Martin had a major impact on From Software’s creation of the world for Elden Ring. Miyazaki compared Martin’s mythology to the dungeon master’s handbook in a tabletop RPG.
“The player will be able to learn about Martin’s mythology through exploration. We are known for letting the player explore the game’s lore through fragments of environmental storytelling, and this time around Martin’s story is what you will be trying to unravel. The period the player actually explores is still connected to the old times, so as you slowly discover why the world has become the way it is, you will learn more about Martin’s mythology as well.”

“There is no fixed main character in Elden Ring. We mostly leave it up to the player to decide the characteristics and personality of the character they create.”

Miyazaki believes that Elden Ring‘s NPC characters will be more compelling than his previous works thanks to Martin’s mythology as a source of inspiration.

Martin has blatantly spent strawberry float all time on this :lol:

He’s thrown a few general ideas their way and pocketed a load of cash while they can plaster his name all over the box.

Apparently fans are going crazy 'cos FromSoftware mentioned Elden Ring in a response to their own tweet about Sekiro.

We haven't heard much at all about the game since it's announcement so... I'm sure this means it'll be releasing soon?!11!?1?

Fans were losing their minds like a week after it was announced. The way they sounded like they were info starved you'd think it was announced in 2015, but no, they were going crazy after about 3 months.

Granted now we're over a year out it's maybe due some info, but Fromsoft fans are extremely impatient.

I'm very hyped for Elden Ring and would love to see some gameplay or details. I guess it's probably going to be a 2022 game though!

Let it cook. Elden is a game that I'm incredibly hyped for, but not in any way eager to play it right now. I feel like this is gonna be a special game and I want them to take as long as they need on it. Past few FS experiences have been pretty mixed for me and I just have a hunch Elden Ring will be something different to look forward to.

Supposed concept art and game details leaked:

Two concept arts are revealed. Check this (/r/Eldenring/comments/kmbfj4/leaked_concept_arts_from_a_reputable_chinese/ ) for details.
The game world is based on the world tree from Norse mythology, and also references something from Celtic mythology.
The gameplay is similar to Dark Souls, but the map is much larger, includes dynamic weather and day/night alternation. Imagine you fight with a Boss from day to night, he said, and the weather changes from sunny to thunderous.
The modeling of enemies is more complex, and there will be cthulu-style enemies similar to bloodborne.
Remember that red hair giant (Look up at sky, it burns)? He was badly wounded in a battle. His faction is characterized by red hair and the use of large weapons. There is also a faction characterized by white hair. The two biggest factions he has known so far seem to have come from the same ancestor, but have split up eventually.
The guy with a lot of hands at the beginning of the 2019 trailer is probably an NPC.
That crestfallen dude will appear again.
Waifu (similar to fire keeper)
Patches may not appear, or not appear in human form (bloodborne spider).
There are characters like Gael and the xanthous king.
The game development stage has been completed in the first half of 2020 and is now in the polishing stage. The game will be released in 2021, he's pretty sure. It's possible to see a new trailer after the Japanese New Year.



Supposedly confirmed by other Chinese reporters being asked not to repost by their insider contacts.
