Watch the first trailer for Elden Ring

Obviously enough, it's also an entirely new mythos, co-created by George R.R. Martin, which provided a "wonderful source of stimulus" for FromSoftware, in Miyazaki's gracious words. So we will have to wait until From Software, or publisher Bandai Namco, is willing to reveal more about Elden Ring. In Elden Ring you'll apparently be exploring kingdoms. Martin teased that he "consulted on a video game out of Japan" - and now the trailer for that game has arrived.

"I doubt you could even imagine it", the narrator says. "That which commanded the stars, giving life its fullest brilliance, the Elden Ring... oh Elden Ring... shattered by someone or something. We sincerely hope you look forward to it".

Martin added: "Building the world of Elden Ring with Miyazaki-san and his team was a treat!" They also published the Dark Souls games, which showed up on multiple platforms. "Among those areas, you will also find intricately designed, multi-layered castles and such".

"ELDEN RING brings together two incredible masters of their respective crafts", said Chris Gilbert Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. Any allusion to forging rings of power obviously evokes Tolkien, and the whole thing generally has a dark, mythic fantasy feeling that's very much in line with the Dark Souls series.

"Yes, of course. Boss fights are something we enjoy making and make up one of the climaxes to this title as well". "Similar to the Dark Souls series, Elden Ring allows players to design and control their own unique character". This may mean that instead of a strictly-defined protagonist, we'll play as a character who fits a particular role like "chosen undead" or "ashen one".

Also, Miyazaki confirmed the game would be hard, as all games by From are.

Miyazaki's company, FromSoftware, makes games known for extremely in-depth, complex lore.
