Yuka Kitamura, the composer behind games such as Sekiro, Bloodborne, and Dark Souls II & III has confirmed she is working on the soundtrack of FromSoftware and George R.R Martin’s Elden Ring. She confirmed this when asked by a fan on Twitter. That is some solid news for Elden Ring which has been shrouded in mystery since it was announced

When it was announced Miyazaki said, “Collaborating with George R. R. Martin to create the Elden Ring mythos has been a genuinely delightful experience and a source of wonderful inspiration. The team is working hard to ensure that the world of Elden Ring will be a fascinating place for players to explore, filled with peril and wonder from its furthest reaches to its lowest depths. This is a FromSoftware title through and through, rich in fantasy and RPG action.”
Meanwhile, George had the following to say: “Building the world of Elden Ring with Miyazaki-san and his team was a treat! The graphics, mythos, and action-RPG gameplay will deliver an unforgettable experience. I can’t wait for people to see what Elden Ring has in store for them.”
We do know Elden Ring will be an open world title but there will not be towns to visit with ruins being the focus on exploring dungeons. Players will explore the world on foot and horseback. Elden Ring has been announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, however with no release date confirmed and so little news about the game those may not be the only platforms. Despite the delays caused by COVID-19 Sony and Microsoft are expecting to release the PS5 and Xbox Series X later this year. It not be a surprise if From Software’s title becomes a cross generational title.
