A new video game with George R.R. Martin as a consultant was announced at E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo – announced as the world's premier video game conference – in Los Angeles.
Martin was the history consultant for "Elden Ring," a new action and RPG game developed by FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment, which was officially unveiled Sunday at the Microsoft Xbox E3 2019 press conference.
"The world's fiction was created in collaboration between the director of FromSoftware, Hidetaka Miyazaki, and fantasy author George RR Martin, who wrote masterpieces such as" The Song of Ice and Fire, "rated the best-selling fantasy novel by The New York Times. "
Also intense is Martin's desire to deliver the next two books in his series "A Song of Ice and Fire," in which the HBO series "Game of Thrones" was based. (HBO is owned by CNN's parent company, WarnerMedia.)
"Oh cool … George R R Martin is postponing writing to a whole new level by entering the game world with Elden Ring," one person tweeted.
Fans have taken these novels seriously.
"No, THE WINDS OF WINTER and THE DREAM OF SPRING are not over," Martin wrote in an entry titled "Idiotice on the Internet." "DREAM has not even started, I will not start writing volume seven until I finish volume six."
