George R.R. Martin working with Dark Souls creators on Elden Ring

The Dark Souls series and games like Bloodborne all have secrets and histories that players still debate and examine years after the fact...which sounds like the flawless fit for someone like Martin, who has legions of readers theorizing and debating his own work. Revealed tonight during Microsoft's E3 blast, it is some manner of FromSoft-y fantasy action-RPG. That which commanded the stars, giving life its fullest brilliance.

Elden Ring, which began development shortly after Dark Souls 3's final DLC shipped, will lean more towards classic RPG tropes with lots of weapons, magic, armor and different strategic opportunities to slay enemies. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and Miyazaki's Dark Souls both share elements of the dark fantasy and epic genres (in both games and books), so knowing the two have collaborated on this latest project has certainly caught the attention of multiple fanbases. Martin added. "The graphics, mythos, and action-RPG gameplay will deliver an unforgettable experience. It is without a doubt our biggest title yet in terms of sheer volume", explains Miyazaki.

Perhaps the most exciting details are in his response to a question about the differences between Elden Ring and previous titles, where he refers to Elden Ring as an "open world" title.

Elden Ring is first and foremost described as a third-person action RPG.
