From Summer Game Fest, here’s what we know about ‘Elden Ring’ – Marin Independent Journal

E3 got an unofficial kick off with the Summer Game Fest celebration that was streamed for video games fans. Gamers saw new footage of upcoming titles such as “Back 4 Blood” and “Endless Dungeon,” but the main reason that many tuned in was to see gameplay footage of the highly anticipated action role-playing game “Elden Ring.”

Highly anticipated action RPG from “Dark Souls” creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin wowed in its scale and scope

Developed by “Dark Souls” creator Hidetaka Miyazaki in collaboration with “Game of Thrones” author “George R.R. Martin, the project has serious heft behind it. The game has a visual style that will remind players of Miyazaki’s past works, but “Elden Ring” is more ambitious as players venture through a seamless landscape with weather and time-of-day progression, according to Bandai Namco. Officially on company’s info sheet, it’s labeled as a single-player game but I expect that FromSoftware will introduce online components similar to what players found “Dark Souls.” Namely, players can call on friends to help them venture through parts of the world and take difficult opponents such as bosses.

As the trailer shows, players can traverse via horseback or on foot, and the goal is to find the eponymous Elden Ring. It’s an action RPG that will have gameplay flexibility, according the the publisher. Players can experiment with “a wide variety of weapons, magical abilities and skills.” They can jump into battle or go a stealth route. Whatever the case, “Elden Ring” will be difficult but fair. I saw at least one death during the trailer and players should expect many more as this game does appear to be “Souls” adjacent.

“With ‘Elden Ring,’ we have applied all our dark fantasy and action-RPG expertise cultivated throughout the ‘Dark Souls’ series, in order to create a bold, classical evolution of the genre,” commented Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director at FromSoftware, in a news release. “We’ve crafted a rich world with a staggering sense of scale, based off of legends written for the game by George R. R. Martin. ‘Elden Ring’ is a world full of mystery and peril, ready to be explored and discovered; a drama in which various characters flaunt their own mystique and ulterior motives. We sincerely hope you enjoy experiencing it for yourself.”

So it sounds as though Martin doesn’t have a role crafting the exact plot, but he is involved in creating the flavor and tone of “Elden Ring.” Players don’t see obvious references to his work in the trailer, but perhaps, the flashes to the adversaries and other side characters will reveal more of his contribution to the project. If the game is “Dark Souls” with a clearer and more compelling story, then it’s a definitely a must-have when “Elden Ring” launches Jan. 21, 2022, on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
