Martin shared a message on his personal blog about the show’s finale…but it contained a fascinating tease about something else he was working on (aside from The Winds of Winter, that is). Martin teased that he “consulted on a video game out of Japan” – and now the trailer for that game has arrived.
It’s called Elden Ring, and Martin’s influence on this high-fantasy game is extremely apparent. Check out the trailer below, which debuted yesterday during Microsoft’s E3 presentation. Read More »
