Despite being involved with Elden Ring, George R.R. Martin admitted he had not personally played the most recent epic from FromSoftware. Martin provided an explanation for this while appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which was noticed by GamesRadar.


People appear to be interested in this Winds of Winters novel, so I haven't played it, Martin said. I also have a totally addicted nature, which is awful. I used to play video games back in the day. I became caught in playing games like Railroad Tycoon, Master of Orion, and Homeworld. Weeks or months would pass, and I would be sitting there in my red flannel bathrobe saying, "One more game, one more game," until [at some point I went], I have to stop immediately; continuing like this will kill me.


Elden Ring, which Martin described as "the most gorgeous game I have ever seen," was Martin's final compliment to the FromSoftware team. It's extremely great and incredibly detailed, and everyone that plays it adores it. I feel very honored to have contributed to it.


The Winds of Winter, the penultimate installment of A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as other projects like HBO's House of the Dragon are undoubtedly keeping Martin very busy. In the same interview with Colbert, Martin said that The Winds of Winter could be over 1500 pages long and that he's about three-quarters of the way done writing it.



Elden Ring's connection with Martin was revealed along with the game's presentation at E3 2019. He played a significant role in the development of the game's bosses, the plot, and a large portion of the area. Martin's involvement in the project was actually over years ago because so much of his work was conceptual. Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of Elden Ring, claimed he put some limitations on Martin's contributions to make sure the narrative always served the user experience.

The author hasn't yet sat down to play Elden Ring, but he has seemed really pleased with the entire experience. Martin expressed his satisfaction with the reviews at the time the game was published. Additionally, he has said in the past that the chance to work on Elden Ring is "too fascinating to pass up."

Martin and FromSoftware ought to be overjoyed with the way Elden Ring turned out. With a flawless rating in our review, record-breaking sales, and internet records, the game has taken center stage in 2022.
