Elden Ring: George R.R. Martin Is Very Happy With the Reviews

Martin posted a new blog post saying that the Elden Ring reviews that made it one of the best games in modern history were “music to the ears.”

“The wait is over,” wrote the legendary author. “The release of ELDEN RING, which took years to create, was released last week and took the gaming world by storm.

But don’t listen to me. The software involved me in the creation of their world, so I can hardly claim objectivity.

Martin gave several examples of almost universally good reviews and wrote, “And… well, that’s not all. Much more.” Miyazaki has previously noted that Martin, who was brought in years ago to develop the world and story of Elden Ring, may be shocked by what has become of his characters. But Martin acknowledged that the launch of Elden Ring last week was a game-changer and congratulated Miyazaki on his accomplishment.

He said, “Nearly all the credit goes to Hidetaka Miyazaki and his amazing team of game designers who have been working on this game for five or more years determined to make the best video game ever made. I am honored to have met and worked with them and played a part, however small, in creating this fantasy world and making Elden Ring the iconic mega-hit that it is.”

The two fantasy legends seem equally excited to work together, as Miyazaki recently commented that working with Martin was like “talking to an old friend.” Miyazaki also talked about the limitations he placed on Martin’s contributions and how they benefited both the screenwriter and the developers.

In our 10/10 review, IGN said, “Elden Ring is a massive iteration of what FromSoftware started with the Souls series, bringing relentlessly challenging combat into an incredible open world that gives us the freedom to choose our own path.” To make that choice with the most accessible information, check out our guide, which has everything you could ever hope to know about Elden Ring, including collectible locations, boss strategies, and more.
