George RR Martin, the creator of A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones), has participated in the development of Elden Ring, the newest from FromSoftware and Bandai Namco. Although since the announcement it was known that the writer had worked in the production, it was unknown to what extent he had contributed his two cents. In an interview with IGN, Yasuhiro Kitao, from the studio, confirmed that the novelist and screenwriter has not taken over the texts that appear ingame, since it has been Hidetaka Miyazaki himself who has written all those sentences.
Martin’s role in Elden Ring has been rather one of architect of the world and context of history and its universe, but Miyazaki has had the responsibility of capturing lore in the game itself: “[Miyazaki] he is at the front, writing the text in the game ”. Kitao has also explained that the plot will be narrated in a similar way to other products from the developer: “In the From style, the plot is narrated in fragments, we have not changed our principles when it comes to providing a world and narrative that the player can interpret on their own ”, he said.
