George R.R. Martin Comments On The Look Of Elden Ring

Fantasy writer George R.R. Martin has finally gotten a look at the upcoming title Elden Ring, and he had some interesting words for the game. If you didn't already know, Martin has been providing much of the storyline to this latest endeavor between Bandai Namco and FromSoftware. he hasn't really said too much about the game, as we're sure he's keeping a lot to himself for players to experience on their own without spoliers. But it appears he's finally gotten a look at the game, as his most recent blog entry talks about it (albeit briefly). Here's what he had to say.

Elden Ring Gets A New Release Date & Closed Network Test

A few years back,  Hidetaka Miyazaki and his incredible team of game designers, the creators of the Dark Souls videogame series, reached out from Japan to ask me to help them create the backstory and history for a new game they were working on.  Now, video games are not really my thing — oh, I played a few back in the dawn of time, mainly strategy games like Railroad Tycoon, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and Master of Orion — but this offer was too exciting to refuse.  Miyazaki and his team from FromSoftware were doing  groundbreaking stuff with gorgeous art, and what they wanted from me was just a bit of worldbuilding: a deep, dark, resonant world to serve as a foundation for the game they planned to create.  And as it happens, I love creating worlds and writing imaginary history.

So I did my bit, and handed off to my new friends in Japan, and they took it from there.   And years passed.   Videogames are as big as movies these days (bigger, actually)… and take just as long to create.

But the day of Elden Ring is finally at hand.

And I've got to say, it looks incredible.

So yeah, he likes the look of this game. Also… Kinda cool to know he played Master of Orion! Elden Ring will be released on February 22nd, 2022 for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox.
