Elden Ring will be the largest game developed from FromSoftware.
The game is a joint project of writer George Martin (author of Game of Thrones) and Hidetaki Miyazaki (creator of Dark Souls series). Called the new dark fantasy action packed RPG, the game revolves around the Elden ring. The ring has the power to command the stars and life itself until someone or something breaks it. The world is in war, the sky is burning. The main character represents the will, the aspirations of mankind.
The first official game trailer was shown at E3 2019. The game aroused interest in the collaboration of Game of Thrones creator George Martin and Dark Souls creator Hidetaki Miyazaki, with his studio, which also developed Sekiro and Bloodborne. Martin creates the mythological foundation of the game in a new fantasy open world. Judging by the work of Martin and the first trailer, you can expect a harsh and gloomy setting, complex characters.
They promise that the game will be difficult, like other releases of FromSoftware, but the emphasis on role-playing elements will be increased. Miyazdaki in an interview with Xbox Wire said that the development of the game began shortly after the completion of work on Dark Souls 3 DLC, that is, in 2017. It is planned to release the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Little is known about the plot of the game – the main sources of information are the trailer and fragments of the interview. In the world of Elden Ring, the Elden ring was broken, and this had a huge impact on the world. Miyazaki says the ring is the mysterious concept that the world holds on to, and the meaning of the ring is one of the game’s most important themes.
Elden Ring is an action RPG with a 3rd-person perspective. It will feature intense battles and skirmishes with bosses typical of FromSoftware games. To enhance the role aspect, they will introduce character customization, a number of different weapons, magic, and game styles. As in the Dark Souls series, you can create and control your own, unique character. The game world will be more open than any previous FromSoftware game, the player will get more freedom of exploration. Miyazaki emphasizes that a large open world will be the most noticeable difference between the game and previous releases. In terms of volume, the game will definitely surpass all other Miyazaki studio products. In an interview with IGN, the head of FromSoftware said that players will be able to travel on horses, and that there will be no cities or interactive NPCs (non-player characters). The world will be destroyed because the Miyazaki team already has successful experience creating such worlds, and adding cities to the overall concept would be too laborious.
