George R.R. Martin’s work on Game of Thrones is probably what he’s most well-known for, but his work on Elden Ring is something for fans to be excited about. And apparently, all of it was already done years ago. The news comes from an interview Martin did with WTTW News Chicago, in which he was about about his involvement in the game.

“My work on it was actually done years ago,” Martin explained. “These games, they’re like movies, they take a long time to develop. Basically, they wanted a world created to set the game in. World building is a big factor in fantasy and science fiction. You’re not only talking characters and the plot, but the setting is almost as important as everything else: Tolkien’s Middle-Earth, Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age, the Foundation universe of Isaac Asimov.”

Martin says his job mostly consisted on working up detailed background information for the game world and From did the rest of the work from there. He also said that while From would occasionally show him monster designs or other “cool things,” he hasn’t worked on the game in years. “The game has been slowly developing and now it’s coming out in January, I believe, so I’ll be as excited as anybody else to see it,” Martin said.
