From Software’s newest title has been leaked by Bandai Namco and is apparently called Elden Ring. This information was discovered due a security vulnerability on the official Namco website, and was reported by Gematsu that they have lifted images directly from Bandai Namco’s publicly accessible server. This would seem to indicate that this leak is indeed genuine, though at this time no trademark has been yet filed.
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.
Hidetaka Miyazaki, President and Game Director of FromSoftware Inc. known for directing critically-acclaimed games in beloved franchises including Armored Core, Dark Souls, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
George R.R. Martin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the acclaimed series A Song of Ice and Fire – A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast For Crows, and A Dance with Dragons. As a writer-producer, he has worked on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and pilots that were never made.
As we posted in our previous article, it appears that George R.R. Martin is working with From Software on some sort of open world fantasy that may have a nordic theme. The name certainly seems fitting for a fantasy game, further indicating the authenticity of the leak.
The game is anticipated to be playable on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Switch and mobile support are yet unknown. Stay tuned for more coverage of Elden Ring as we expect to see the announcement trailer at the Microsoft Press Conference on Sunday. Check out our E3 2019 coverage to stay informed.
