FromSoftware’s newest IP Elden Ring is in the works as a collaboration between Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki and A Song of Ice & Fire author George R.R. Martin.
Miyazaki tells IGN that the narrative in Elden Ring will be similar to that of Dark Souls, which is known for its vague story and emphasis on environmental storytelling. Most of Miyazaki’s other works, including Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne share the same traits.
With a fixed main character and a more concrete narrative, 2019’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was one of Miyazaki’s first games to derive from that formula. The 2018 PS VR adventure Déraciné was an even bigger departure from the storytelling that FromSoftware fans have come to expect from him.
