ELDEN RING Announced

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment announces ELDEN RING, a fantasy action/RPG game in development at FromSoftware that's coming to Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. This confirms the report that this is the title of FromSoftware's collaboration with acclaimed fantasy author George R.R. Martin, who needed some way to fill his free time. The game does not yet have a release date, but the official website is online where you can sign up to stay informed on the project. The site offers this announcement trailer with a disarming cinematic look at what to expect, though this is more mysterious and atmospheric than informative. Here's all they are revealing about this for now:
Leading interactive entertainment media developer and publisher BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announced ELDEN RING™, an expansive fantasy Action-RPG game developed by FromSoftware, Inc. under the direction of Hidetaka Miyazaki for the Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and PC.

Unparalleled adventure awaits in ELDEN RING, the next epic fantasy title created by FromSoftware, Inc. and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. ELDEN RING is FromSoftware’s largest game to-date and is set in a sprawling realm steeped in a rich and bloody history crafted by Hidetaka Miyazaki – creator of the influential and critically acclaimed DARK SOULS video game series; and George R.R. Martin – author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire.

“Collaborating with George R.R. Martin to create the ELDEN RING mythos has been a genuinely delightful experience and a source of wonderful inspiration. The team is working hard to ensure that the world of ELDEN RING will be a fascinating place for players to explore, filled with peril and wonder from its furthest reaches to its lowest depths. This is a FromSoftware title through and through, rich in fantasy and RPG action. We sincerely hope you look forward to it.” Said Hidetaka Miyazaki, President of FromSoftware, Inc. and Game Director for ELDEN RING.
