After the mind-blowing 2021 SGF Elden Ring re-reveal trailer, multiple outlets worldwide have published interviews with big boss HIdetaka Miyazaki himself - providing some long-awaited insights into the concept, world, lore, and gameplay mechanics of the collaboration with George R. R. Martin, shaping up to be the next FROM masterpiece.

Next to the big IGN feature, another equally as big and revealing deep dive was published by the Japanese FAMITSU, available to everyone since yesterday via rather painful to read google translate.

A reddit Japanese speaking user r/theangrufurlong took the effort and translated it all into proper English. It's so good it's definitely worth another thread.

Kind of a bummer that you will not be able to use a horse while in co-op. I wonder if that was due to technical or design limitations. Also curious how PvP will work since this will be a much bigger world than their previous games.

one of the interviews from yesterday said they're still developing PvP... I guess there must be some kind of a limit so that players can't get too far from each other, which would be likely on the mount

We have very quickly gone from having absolutely zero information on FromSoftware's hotly-anticipated Elden Ring to having just... so much information about Elden Ring. We were fortunate enough to talk with the godfather of Souls himself, Hidetaka Miyazaki, who gave us a huge amount of information on the game that totally re-contextualizes what we saw in the most recent trailer. Here's what's really going on in the Lands Between.

Open world/traversal suck major balls. Connect the ruins, whatever via portals ...

It better be not a terrible Shadow of the Colossus rip off with enemies to fight. That encampment is straight out of a LOTR movie. Pretty sure it will disappoint many.

They did not need him at all for prev. Soulsborne, why the sudden change?! What can he bring to the table? Dont think this collaboration was a good idea.
