The newest game from FromSoftware was announced at Microsoft’s E3 conference, and already fans are speculating about what the game will be. The trailer reveal told us little, outside a very dark and eerie feeling that’s been a staple of many of the company’s games. But what is an Elden Ring? Well, it’s a neat name, for one, but Director and Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki breaks down a little more meaning.

In talking with IGN, Miyazaki talked about how the Elden Ring refers to a strange key item in the game’s world. It governors over the rules of the world, but it has been shattered in some way that has driven everything into chaos. He also says that it’s also a reference to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, and the concept of a ring or circle having an undefinable amount of power. Miyazaki even says it will not only affect the story, but also the gameplay.

The Elden Ring is a mysterious, key element in the foundation of the world we have created,” says Miyazaki. “It forms the rules and rhythm of this world. But as you can see in our trailer, it has been shattered.”

Elden Rings is slated to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you’re curious about what else the developers have said about the game, check it out here.
