Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Martin is working on a new video game.

No matter how hard we try, we cannot let go when it comes to Game of Thrones. Whether it’s rumors about prequels, sequels or any other project the cast or writers may or may not be working on — we’re ready to report.

Naturally, we were excited to learn that the writer of the novels, George R. R. Martin, has been working on a new video game.

Although the game has nothing to do with Game of Thrones, it is still a thing of dreams for fantasy lovers. The game is called Elden Ring and is being created by the Dark Souls studio FromSoftware.

Martin said of the project, “Building the world of Elden Ring with Miyazaki 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.”

The “epic fantasy” has been directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki and is anticipated for a 2020 release. You can watch the game trailer here:
