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 JRR 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. It forms the rules and rhythm of this world. But as you can see in our trailer, it has been shattered.”
