Phil Spencer Played Elden Ring, Says It Is Miyazaki’s Most Ambitious Game Yet

Microsoft’s Phil Spencer recently had the opportunity to play FromSoftware’s new title Elden Ring. In his conclusion, the head of Microsoft’s gaming division said that we can look forward to Hidetaka Miyazaki’s most ambitious project to date.

If we ignore a few details, unfortunately in the past few months it has been quiet about the fantasy adventure Elden Ring, which From Software is currently working on. Nobody less than Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s gaming division, provided a new sign of life. In an interview with GameSpot, Phil Spencer pointed out that he recently had the opportunity to play Elden Ring in detail.

According to his own statements, Spencer is enthusiastic about the impressions so far and can already say that we are facing no less than the most ambitious project of game director Hidetaka Miyazaki so far.

Spencer said: “As somebody who’s played all of Miyazaki’s games over at least the last decade, this is clearly the most ambitious game that he’s done. I mean, I love his games, but seeing some of the gameplay mechanics stuff that he’s tackling, he and the team are tackling this time, of the setting, working with another creator in terms of story. I love it.”

Spencer went on to say that Miyazaki left the room every time he played Elden Ring. “I think that’s because I’m a bad player, and then when he comes back we’ll have a conversation about things that I think,” he says. “He’s so passionate about what he does. It’s one of the things I just love about getting to work with him on some of these games and seeing them come to our platform.”

It was recently speculated that the ambitious fantasy adventure of Elden Ring could possibly be presented at the Game Awards 2020 in December. However, the whole thing has not yet been officially confirmed.
