Elden Ring officially announced at E3 2019

Elden Ring was today confirmed at the Microsoft Xbox E3 2019 press conference.

Lining up with rumours earlier in the week, the game is a collaboration between FromSoftware’s Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones‘ George R. R. Martin.

As you can see from the game’s trailer, we’re getting heavy Lord of the Rings vibe from the project.

“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,” FromSoftware’s Hidetaka Miyazaki said. “This is a FromSoftware title through and through, rich in fantasy and RPG action. We sincerely hope you look forward to it.”

“Building the world of Elden Ring with Miyazaki-san and his team was a treat,” added George R. R. Martin himself. “The graphics, mythos, and action-RPG gameplay will deliver an unforgettable experience. I can’t wait for people to see what Elden Ring has in store for them.”

Elden Ring will head to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 at some point; a release date wasn’t named.
