Elden Ring [OT] Shadow of the Erdtree expansion announced











"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," he says. "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."

The other creator Spencer mentions is, of course, Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin, who has worked on the story for the upcoming open world game.

According to Spencer, Elden Ring is Miyazaki "expanding his horizons." He also says that leaves the room while Spencer plays. "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."

"expanding his horizons."

This is exactly what I want from From Software. Breaking away from the tired Souls formula got us Sekiro so this sounds great. Really hope we get to see gameplay soon.

We might get to see that Norse George RR Martin and FromSoftware game at E3

It’s rumoured to be called Great Rune, and I’m pumped
George RR Martin has apparently joined forced with FromSoftware, creators of the git gud Soulsborne collection of videogames like Bloodborne, Dark Souls, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. But don’t assume it’s going to be set in the world of Game of Thrones, as rumours have it that this game - titled Great Rune, supposedly - is set in the Norse world, exploring Norse mythology and all its dark legends.

Whisperings began circling on the internet in early 2019 and went into a lot more detail about what players can expect: you’ll be invading kingdoms and stealing the powers of their rulers after a FromSoftware-style battle, which will then serve you well when you have to fight other kings. All I can say is that I hope Martin hasn’t forgotten that he’s also got the Game of Thrones book series to finish, as after that Game of Thrones ending there’s a hell of a lot of things people are going to want to Martin write (and justify) in his own words…

[h=1]E3 leak reveals FromSoftware’s George R.R. Martin game Elden Ring, Ni no Kuni remaster[/h]

Plus, a new Tales game





Bandai Namco’s E3 lineup appears to have leaked ahead of the annual gaming show, revealing new titles Elden Ring, the collaboration between Dark Souls studio FromSoftware and author George R.R. Martin; Tales of Arise, the next game in the fantasy role-playing game franchise; and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered.
The leak appears to be sourced from a security vulnerability on Bandai Namco’s website, leading to screenshots and descriptions of each game finding their way to the Resetera forums.
Elden Ring is said to be FromSoftware’s “largest game to date” and “a fantasy action-RPG adventure set within a world created by [Dark Souls creator] Hidetaka Miyazaki ... and George R.R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series. A logo for the previously rumored game was posted on Twitter by Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad.

Elden Ring is reportedly coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
Tales of Arise, pictured at the top of this post, is an action role-playing game set in the Tales series featuring “a new cast of characters, updated combat, and classic Tales of gameplay mechanics.” Here’s the official description, reportedly sourced from a press release:
On the planet Dahna, reverence has always been given to Rena, the planet in the sky, as a land of the righteous and divine. Stories handed down for generations became truth and masked reality for the people of Dahna. For 300 years, Rena has ruled over Dahna, pillaging the planet of its resources and stripping people of their dignity and freedom. Our tale begins with two people, born on different worlds, each looking to change their fate and create a new future.
Finally, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered is said to be an update version of Level 5’s role-playing game for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. A version of the game is also apparently coming to Nintendo Switch.

Wasn't this announced for last-gen platforms only? I guess now it will make it to XBSX and PS5 as well. Miyazaki and open-world got me interested.

Looks like we won't have to wait much longer now. Possibly a trailer at MS's event whenever that happens.


After saying that he is much more "sure" about Elden Ring than Starfield, the industry expert explained that he had some new informations, coming from "a combination of sources". He stated that:

"They [the sources] gave me confidence that Elden Ring would be by the end of March."
This is what he said shortly after:

"I know enough to be confident, but if it were to slip into April I would apologize [...] but I will continue to say you are not gonna wait long."
Much excite!!!

    BTW, i started Ghost of Tsushima, and it got me hooked within the first couple of minutes. I already know It's gonna be a memorable experience. This is how you make a proper Samurai game. Not that SJW game Ubisoft is making.

    That's still higher than it's total play length. A 5 hour campaign for a $50 game is downright scammy.

    Consoles were my main platform ever since Atari 2500. But now I think it's not worth it as PC especially with DLSS deliver far smoother performance. AW2 on console didn't even had ray tracing and ran below 30fps. Similar issues plagues DD2 on consoled.
    The cross gen era really made people think 60fps would be a new standard lol

    Welp, done with Hellblade 2. Thoroughly disappointed. Such a nothing burger after the unique experience of the first game.

    I have a PS5 but I am not satisfied with the experience. I am currently saving for a 4080 64 GB rig soon. Bit will wait for Pro if performance improves. This gen has been so bad I don't plan on buying consoles anymore for AAA gaming.

    As per WCCF Tech review, Xbox Series X doesn't even maintain a consistent FPS and sometimes drops into the mid-20fps range. That's unacceptable, tbh.

    Score 1 for game pass. I wouldn't pay full price for this at retail either.

    Just downloaded my first legit digital PC game on GoG at a discount of $8: Two Point Hospital. The same team behind Theme Hospital Two Point Studios now part of Sega. And I am having more fun than most recent AAA games except of course BG3.

    PC Gamer score of 58/100 for Hellblade 2??? Is it really worse than Gollum that was 64/100? Microsoft games can't even come close to high scores of Sony exclusives apparently.

    About the Microsoft (and Sony) debate, I feel both have become too greedy and losing their minds over corporate greed. Personally, I will never buy any console next gen and switch to PC gaming where democracy reins.
