No, George R.R. Martin Hasn’t Played Elden Ring

Despite George R.R. Martin’s involvement with Elden Ring, the author has revealed that he has never played FromSoftware’s latest epic himself.Appeared in Late Show with Stephen Colbertdiscovered by game radarMartin explained why.

“I haven’t played it because people seem to want this Winds of Winters book,” Martin said. Has a toxic personality.I played video games a long time ago, I’ve played games like Railroad Tycoon, Master of Orion, Homeworld and I’ve been hooked on it for weeks and months. I walked past and sat there in my red flannel bathrobe like, “One more game, one more game.” [finally I went]”I can’t, I have to go turkey calmly about this, this is going to kill me here.”

Martin went on to praise the team at FromSoftware, calling Elden Ring “the most beautiful game I’ve ever seen. It’s really amazing, it’s amazingly detailed, and the people who play it love it and were lucky enough to be a part of it.” I am very pleased that it’s.”

In the same interview with Colbert, Martin said The Winds of Winter could be over 1,500 pages and was about three-quarters finished writing. His penultimate entry in A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as other projects such as HBO’s House of the Dragon, keep Martin very busy.

Martin’s involvement in Elden Ring was announced at E3 2019 along with the game’s reveal. He was key to much of the story foundation, game bosses, and overall world building. Much of his work was at a conceptual level, so Martin’s involvement in the project was actually completed several years ago. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of Elden Ring, said he placed some restrictions on Martin’s contributions so that the story would always be conducive to the player’s experience.

And while the writer didn’t sit down to play Elden Ring, he seems quite pleased with the overall experience. said. He had previously stated that the opportunity to work on Elden in His Ring was “too exciting to turn down”.

FromSoftware and Martin should be very happy with the Elden Ring results. The game dominated his 2022 conversation, scoring perfect reviews, smashing sales milestones, and setting internet records.
