With the successful releases of Pokémon Arceus, Horizon Forbidden West, Dying Light 2 and Total War Warhammer 3, Elden Ring could well be the icing on the cake of a great start to the year for the world of video games, all platforms combined. The next product from From Software studios and the teams of the highly respected Hidetaka Miyazaki (Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro…) seems well deserving of its “Most Anticipated Game of the Year” award, obtained at the Game Awards a few months ago. .

It’s hard not to recognize the special touch of Hidetaka Miyazaki (no connection with Hayao Miyazaki, the founder of Ghibli studios) during these three minutes. A universe as dark as it is mysterious, an enigmatic scenario, characters and monsters with such… varied attractions. It’s the work of the Japanese director, behind Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro. And this time, he was able to count on a collaboration with none other than George RR Martin, the author of the Game of Thrones saga, to offer us this unique experience.

As for its story, Elden Ring takes place in a whole new universe, from the imagination of none other than George RR Martin. Recently interviewed by the American newspaper WWTW, the author of Game of Throne confirmed his involvement in the project throughout its many years of development. He claimed to have shaped the Elden Ring universe down to the finest detail to provide developers with a solid foundation for developing their games. Given the complexity and originality of the universes that George RR Martin is able to create, we can expect a high-flying narration. If we add this to the inventiveness and graphic quality to which the From Software teams have accustomed us, Elden Ring could very quickly earn its place alongside the excellent Bloodborne, Demon’s Souls or even Sekiro. Moreover, George RR Martin himself claimed to be eager to discover the game. The story of Elden Ring is as follows:

“The Golden Order has been broken. Arise, Shinless, and let grace guide your steps. Harness the power of the Circle of Elden. Become lord of the underworld. Land where Queen Marika the Eternal reigns, the Circle of Elden, vital source of the World Tree, was shattered The descendants of Marika, all demigods, claimed the shards of the Circle of Elden, also called major runes.Thus began the Shattering, a war emanating from the madness wrought by their newfound power. A war that sounded the renunciation of the Supreme Will. Thus will come the hour of the Unbreakables, those who once refused golden grace, and who were exiled from Underland. You who have perished and yet live, journey to Underland, beyond the Sea of ​​Mist, to stand before the Circle of Elden. And so become the Lord of it.

You will have understood, there is something to rejoice in February. Elden Ring promises to be an extraordinary adventure, in addition to ensuring the quality of a From Software game.
