From Software and George R. R. Martin team-up to make Elden Ring


So this one kinda sorta leaked out prior to E3, but I’m still pretty hyped for it. From Software has indeed teamed up with A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) creator George R. R. Martin to bring the newest vision from director Hidetaka Miyazaki to life.

The trailer unveil didn’t give away much, outside of some amazing character designs already on full display. I’m certainly intrigued by this one, as I imagine most From fans will be.

Check out the trailer and press release from Bandai Namco below.
