First info on George RR Martin’s secret new video game has leaked
Another thing to distract him from finishing those pesky books...
The first details of George RR Martin’s secret video game made with the people behind Dark Souls appear to have leaked.
If the details are correct, it appears the game will be a fantasy action-RPG called Elden Ring, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
It will be set in a world co-created by George RR Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of the Dark Souls games.
A supposed title image for the game has also leaked.
Here it is, FromSoftware’s new game ‘Elden Ring’; a collaboration between George R.R. Martin & Hidetaka Miyazaki.
One of the #E32019 leaks, expect more.

The game is developed by cult Japanese team FromSoftware, and will be released by Bandai Namco.
It is predicted that the game will be officially revealed at E3 this month.
In a blog update last month, Martin said he had “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”
A source for Gematsu expanded on this, saying that the project has been known internally as 'GR', and has been in development for the last three years.
It is thought to be an open-world game, with horse riding part of the gameplay.
From Software have built up a devoted following with their Dark Souls and Bloodborne franchises.
In particular, they are known for making their games ludicrously difficult. Their most recent release was Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, an action-adventure set in feudal Japan, and did nothing but reinforce that reputation.
