Isn’t it a little funny that we’ve than from the actual developers behind the game? Developer From Software sure is keeping details about Elden Ring close to the chest, but we do know a bit about the upcoming game.
From Software is developing the game in collaboration with Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, telling a story where you’re exploring an open world full of different kingdoms that are each ruled by a powerful entity. When you defeat a ruler, you gain their unique power–a system that sounds like (but isn’t confirmed to be) how you can acquire the abilities and weapons of Dark Souls bosses by transfiguring their souls.
When talking to GameSpot, Spencer said, “As somebody who’s played all of Miyazaki’s games over at least the last decade, [Elden Ring] is clearly the most ambitious game that he’s done. I mean, I love his games, but seeing some of the gameplay mechanics stuff that he’s tackling, he and the team are tackling this time, of the setting, working with another creator in terms of story. I love it.”
