UPDATE: Just as expected, FromSoftware revealed Elden Ring during Microsoft's Xbox E3 press conference. A joint project of Hidetaka Miyazaki (Dark Souls, Bloodborne) and George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones), Elden Ring is a pseudo-open-world action-RPG.

Elden Ring will feature a large, open central area to explore, splintering off into various areas and kingdoms, each overseen by different factions. Miyazaki said they could be castles, for example, and defeating the local warlord will grant the player with a powerful new ability.

Details are thin on the ground unfortunately, although it sounds as if FromSoft will be leaning more heavily into the RPG elements this time around. Don't worry though Souls fans, epic scale boss fights will still be a staple of Elden Ring.

We've no word on a release date for Elden Ring just yet, although we're keeping our eyes peeled for a 2020 launch.

Original Story:

The rumours were indeed true. Elden Ring is the new game from Sekiro and Dark Souls developer From Software, featuring a world created by the twin talents of Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin.

Bandai Namco will be handling publishing duties for Elden Ring, a fantasy action-RPG adventure that will no doubt have the Souls DNA running through its veins. If you cut Elden Ring, it probably bleeds Estus Flasks.

Details on Elden Ring are a little sketchy. While it’s not called Great Rune as previously rumoured, it does look likely that Elden Ring will still be some sort of Norse adventure.

“Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date,” reads the all-too-brief blurb on the game.

Naturally, we expect to hear a lot more about Elden Ring during E3 proper. Our best guess is Microsoft’s E3 Xbox showcase tomorrow evening, so stay tuned.

So, i am correct i suppose to say this will be a game like dark souls, bloodbourne etc?
If the answer is yes, thats a shame for me. I never found the souls games that appealing to me.
Trust me, i have tried em all, but still its not my favourite thing.
Even tried dark souls 2 with a trainer, and still didnt like it. continues>

If this game is based on GoT, then i think it would be better if it was a game that everyone could like,
cause wheter you like it or not, souls like games, are a unique genre on its own, either you like it, or hate it imo. So not for everyone.
But, even this is a souls like game, i will (again) try it out and then see if can appreciate it a while later.

Yes, and prepare for the "bittersweet" ending. It will probably drag the whole game down too. Gotta keep tradition!

Dont feel like from software is a good choice for this. They write vague stories told through items and DEEP LORE something i dont like with story telling in general.

Sekiro had more of the conventional storytelling ...maybe From is moving more towards that direction with this game ..so ..

You wont find them in the games though. You'll find the lore on the wiki and stuff.

I agree it may not be easy to discover. Youtube and wiki helps to piece it together and find new stuff but the items and lore is in the game. Dark Souls never was a game that easily presented itself to the player but it's easily one of the best games I've ever played, PtD edition in particular.

I'm still hoping that George RR Martin will one day contact CDProjekt RED for a Game of Thrones game.


I know Bethesda had this opportunity, and that would be cool too, but their writing department is severely lacking, plus their game engine isn't really designed to offer what GoT is loved for.
