Brandon Sanderson, the creator of the awe-inspiring fantasy series Mistborn, has been approached by Elden Ring publisher Bandai Namco for a collaboration. FromSoftware’s open-world fantasy epic was made with the assistance of A Song of Ice and Fire creator George R.R. Martin, who composed the backstory of the game’s setting The Lands Between. Recently Sanderson condemned FromSoftware’s collaboration with Martin, because of Martin’s absence of knowledge of computer games, however it seems that it could be Sanderson’s chance to work with the Elden Ring designer.
All through the studio’s vocation, FromSoftware has become notable for taking inspiration from various forms of writing. The engineer’s 2015 title Bloodborne, for instance, takes clear inspiration from the works of fantasy loathsomeness writer H.P. Lovecraft. The gothic ghastliness pretending game sees players go head to head against werewolves and other monsters toward the beginning, however by the end the soulslike title completely transitions into a cosmic frightfulness epic. The Japanese manga series Berserk is also a constant influence for FromSoftware president Hidetaka Miyazaki, with the Berserk manga inspiring Dark Souls alongside Elden Ring and other games.
Following his criticism of George R.R. Martin’s work on Elden Ring, Video Games Chronicle reports that Brandon Sanderson may soon collaborate with FromSoftware as well. The news comes from the latest episode of a YouTube podcast hosted by Brandon Sanderson, which sees the Mistborn creator open an Elden Ring care bundle sent to him by publisher Bandai Namco. Alongside amazing gifts like a sword and Malenia woodcut, the bundle contained a note to Sanderson professing interest in a collaboration. The writer notes that he as of now has a pitch arranged for a soulslike title loaded up with game concepts. Nonetheless, it should be noticed that FromSoftware is an independent designer that is not possessed by Bandai Namco.
While a collaboration with FromSoftware may be in the pipeline, another game from Brandon Sanderson was at that point reported by the Mistborn creator back in late 2021. The upcoming title has obviously been being developed for several years, and it is allegedly irrelevant to any of the novelist’s previous works like Mistborn or Alcatraz. Sanderson has also stated that the game is a collaboration with a notable engineer, however so far details remain scarce. Nonetheless, his involvement in computer games proves that Sanderson would be an optimal creator to work with FromSoftware.
Sanderson seemed frustrated at the missed chance of working on Elden Ring, yet it seems that the dearest novelist may actually have an opportunity to work with FromSoftware all things considered. The Mistborn writer as of now has concepts arranged for his version of a soulslike RPG, making the collaboration a characteristic decision. Nonetheless, the truth will come out at some point whether FromSoftware actually works with Sanderson on a future venture.
