It has been virtually three years since creator George R.R. Martin casually teased that he labored on a online game “out of Japan,” however right here we’re only a few months away from an Elden Ring release.
In a blog post, Martin acknowledged that it has been a bit since he wrote the mythos and backstory for Elden Ring, and the person admits he loves worldbuilding. Having now seen the fruits of what the collaboration made, Martin appears fairly happy. “What they needed from me was only a little bit of worldbuilding: a deep, darkish, resonant world to function a basis for the sport they deliberate to create. And because it occurs, I like creating worlds and writing imaginary historical past,” he wrote.
So, despite the fact that FromSoftware didn’t think he would go for it, Martin bit their hook and went for it. “I did my bit, and handed off to my new associates in Japan, and so they took it from there. And years handed. Videogames are as huge as motion pictures lately (greater, really)… and take simply as lengthy to create,” Martin wrote, “However the day of ELDEN RING is lastly at hand. And I’ve received to say, it appears to be like unimaginable.” (Emphasis Martin’s, there.)
Great place, Gamespot.
