George R.R. Martin, FromSoftware Collaborated Game ‘Elden Ring’ Leaked

Elden Ring,” an upcoming game that’s a collaboration between “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin and FromSoftware’s Hidetaka Miyazaki, was leaked ahead of E3, as spotted by Gematsu.

The game will be a “fantasy action-RPG adventure” and will be FromSoftware’s “largest game to-date” according to a list of games accidentally publicly accessible on Bandai Namco’s website. There were previously rumors that Martin, the author of the series “A Song of Ice and Fire,” which inspired the “Game of Thrones” TV show, was working on a FromSoftware game, and now those rumors come to fruition a few days ahead of plan.

Miyazaki is the creator behind FromSoftware’s “Dark Souls” game series, and he is the mastermind of the world within this new game, “Elden Ring,” as well, according to the leaked files.

“‘Elden Ring,’ developed by FromSoftware, Inc. and Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc., is a fantasy action-RPG adventure set within a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki—creator of the influential ‘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.’ Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date.”

The game is planned for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
