A recent interview with author George RR Martin sheds more insight into the world of FromSoftware and Bandai Namco’s Elden Ring.
Martin stated that though he has played games in the past, he is not a huge video gamer. His work on the game was done years ago, stating that games take a while to develop. The development team wanted a world to set the game in, letting Martin step in with the worldbuilding aspect.
