Game director Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin collaborated on the game. Hidetaka Miyazaki is already well-known as a skilled video game director, having directed Sekiro, Bloodborne, and the Souls series. Elden Ring is a dark fantasy action role-playing game, that features worldbuilding by fantasy novelist George R. R. Martin and allows players to create their own unique characters instead of playing as a predefined protagonist.
Elden Ring will have a far larger scale than previous games. It will have an open world and new gaming features such as horseback riding and more fluid dynamic battles. Elden Ring, unlike many other games, will not have populated cities with NPCs, instead opting for a landscape filled with dungeon-like ruins. Take a look at the new trailer below:
