Elden Ring is around the corner, as who says. Next February 25, 2022 we will have the opportunity to enjoy the new installment of FromSoftware; a title that will take us to the Midlands in the search for the Elden Ring. The history and concept of this world comes to us from the hand of the writer George R.R. Martin (A Song of Ice and Fire), which he shared in a recent post by his blog how has this creative process been: since Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team contacted him until the end of the project.

“A few years ago, Hidetaka Miyazaki and his amazing team of game designers, the creators of the video game series Dark Souls, they contacted me from Japan to ask me to help you create the background and story of a new game they were working on, “Martin writes in his website post titled Long Long Ago “That’s right, video games aren’t my thing. Oh, I’ve played some at the dawn of time, mainly strategy games like Railroad Tycoon, Romance of the Three Kingdoms Y Master of Orion, but this proposition was too exciting to reject. “
In this regard, Martin applauds the “groundbreaking” work that Miyazaki and his team do at FromSoftware, as well as the artistic vision they have in the studio. Factors that ended up convincing the writer to help them: “What they wanted from me was simply for me to build their world a bit: a deep, dark and resonant world that would serve as the basis for the game they planned to create. And I happen to love creating worlds and writing imaginary stories“.

In this way, Martin took care to contribute his grain of sand: “I gave it to my new friends in Japan, and they continued from there. And the years passed. Video games are as big as movies these days ( bigger, actually …) and take just as long to create. Elden Ring it’s finally close, “he continued. “And I have to say it looks amazing.”.
It will be this February 25 when we have the opportunity to immerse ourselves in that dark world that Martin and Miyazaki’s team have drawn. “An ambitious and gigantic open world action RPG adventure that we have already fallen in love“, we write in our impressions. Be available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S.
