Brandon Sanderson Mockingly Commented On George R. R. Martin’s Involvement In The Development Of Elden Ring [VIDEO]

The writer, perhaps best known as the author of the Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive novel series, has been a fan of From Software since PlayStation King’s Field and is looking forward to Elden Ring.



Elden Ring has excited fans since it was first announced for many reasons. Not only because it’s From Software’s new dark fantasy title with a Miyazaki at the helm, but also because it features the author of the Song of Ice and Fire novel series, George R. R. Martin. The community was quick to applaud the inclusion of the cult-famous author, but it seems that not all gamers are happy about the Martin-Elden Ring collaboration.

Sanderson’s personal Top 10 list includes From Software games

Brandon Sanderson has made a name for himself in the literary world with series such as Mistborn, The Stormlight Archive and, co-written with Robert Jordan after the author’s death in 2007, The Wheel of Time. The author held a Q&A session where he expressed his displeasure with the developers’ decision in a mocking tone: “From Software decides to make a fantasy game and collaborate with a fantasy novelist. To do this, they choose a man who spends his days blogging about the NFL (National Football League) instead of a man who has been playing their games since King’s Field and consistently lists their games as one of his top 10 favourites. What do you guys think?”

“I’m like, ‘George doesn’t play video games! He has no idea!’ but okay,” Sanderson finishes

Obviously, this response was delivered in a somewhat satirical style, but it’s true that George R.R. Martin has repeatedly stated that beyond franchises like Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Railroad Tycoon, he has little connection to the world of video games, let alone titles like Elden Ring.

Be that as it may, George R.R. Martin seems to have taken the project with From Software very seriously, as he was impressed with what the developers produced. Although we’ll have to wait a few more weeks before we can enjoy Elden Ring, From Software has already revealed new information about the adventure, such as the length of the campaign and the difficulty compared to Souls.
