George R.R. Martin has debuted his Elden Ring video game at Xbox‘s conference at E3 2019. The Game of Thrones author’s game is a dark fantasy which has been said to be heavily influenced by the action role-playing game Dark Souls.

FromSoftware is behind both Dark Souls and the upcoming Elden Ring game. The new RPG will reimagine Norse mythology and following Viking lore in a heavily-developed world that is synonymous with George R.R. Martin’s work.

FromSoftware’s Hidetaka Miyazaki said in an interview, “The actual collaboration itself begun with Mr. Martin ever so politely confirming what sorts of themes, ideas as well as many game-related aspects I had envisioned for the game… This allowed us to have many free and creative conversations regarding the game, in which Mr. Martin later used as a base to write the overarching mythos for the game world itself.”

Elden Ring will release on Xbox One and PC in the coming years, as the third-person RPG still “has a load of work ahead of it as well,” according to Miyazaki. Rumors surrounding the game’s release suggest it could release in-line with Microsoft’s updated Xbox, which is slated to drop in Q4 2020. Watch the release trailer above.

In other news, Fallout 76 has been updated with a 52-player battle royale mode.
