    FromSoftware

    While everyone is hyped to see Elden Ring finally emerge from the darkness with an actual trailer during Summer Game Fest, I did sort of see that most people somewhat forgot what George RR Martin is supposed to be involved in this project in some capacity.

    In follow-up interviews, Martin’s role is discussed more in depth, and there’s a lot of information specifically in one with Miyazaki Hidetaka in July’s Famitsu, via Frontlinejp.

    A few things stood out to me, and I figured I would highlight them here:

    • Miyazaki and Martin simply met to hang out at first, as Martin knew about Dark Souls, but later it evolved on the business front when Miyazaki eventually asked him to be involved.
    • The game was already planning to be open world before Martin got attached, but him being added to the project reinforced that direction.
    • Martin did not write the actual story for the game, but he “constructed the world” it was based on, as indicated in previous teasers. One concern was that if Martin did write a full story they may have to change it later in production due to the demands of the game, which is something they didn’t want to do.

    • Rather, Martin was tasked with making the “mythology” of the game, the foundation of the world itself.
    • But if it sounds like Martin didn’t do that much, Miyazaki expressly says that Elden Ring’s world wouldn’t be possible at all without Martin, and he says he’s crafted a combination of a myth, historical fiction and an epic poem.
    • The player character does not have a set personality, and merely exists in Martin’s world as a descendent of the exiled Tarnished, the “unblessed” people in the world who do not have the blood of god-queen Marika running through them. The game has multiple endings, and there are “very few” bosses that actually must be defeated, and the structure of progress is largely dependent on how the player wants to tackle the game.

    It sounds like Martin did good work here, enough to certainly please Miyazaki, while avoiding the burden of writing a full-on story, as everyone waits for him to finish Winds of Winter (and A Dream of Spring, to boot). I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the world Martin helped created, even if it’s Miyazaki’s open-ended story based there. I mean, there’s a reason people were so hyped to see these two collaborate, after all.
