First info on George RR Martin’s secret new video game has leaked
Another thing to distract him from finishing those pesky books
The first details of George RR Martin’s secret video game made with the people behind Dark Souls appear to have leaked.
If the details are correct, it appears the game will be a fantasy action-RPG called Elden Ring, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. It will be set in a world co-created by George RR Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of the Dark Souls games.
A supposed title image for the game has also leaked.
The game is developed by cult Japanese team FromSoftware, and will be released by Bandai Namco.
It is predicted that the game will be officially revealed at E3 this month.
In a blog update last month, George RR Martin said he had “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”
A source for Gematsu expanded on this, saying that the project has been known internally as 'GR', and has been in development for the last three years. It is thought to be an open-world game, with horse riding part of the gameplay.
From Software have built up a devoted following with their Dark Souls and Bloodbourne franchises. In particular, they are known for making their games ludicrously difficulty. Their most recent release was Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, an action-adventure game set in feudal Japan, and did nothing but reinforce that reputation.
Game of Thrones the TV show ended this week, but the A Song of Ice and Fire novels still remain uncompleted.
