From IGN: “The gameplay reveal for Elden Ring has undoubtedly been one of the highlights of our Summer of Gaming so far, finally answering some of our many, many questions about the FromSoftware open world RPG’s gameplay, story, and more.

But, as with any game created by Hidetaka Miyazaki, that gameplay trailer has left even more mysteries to be solved. Thankfully, we were lucky enough to sit down for an hour with the legendary game developer, and talk through our biggest questions about the game after its first true showing and we learned a lot more, from how George R.R. Martin’s involvement worked, to its almost Pokemon-like spirit summoning mechanic. What follows is the full transcript from that discussion.”
