George RR Martin's Involvement With Elden Ring Revealed As New Easter Eggs Spotted

Warning: Contains Spoilers

Following its release last month, fans of Elden Ring might have spent the last few weeks getting to know all the ins and outs of the game and attempting to master the challenges it presents.

In doing this many people might believe they've spotted all the hidden details, but there's one Easter Egg relating to Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Martin that could easily be missed, if you're not thinking carefully enough.

To understand the reason why Martin is referenced in the game, we need to go back to the origins of Elden Ring. The game came about in a collaboration between developer FromSoftware and Martin, with creator Hidetaka Miyazaki explaining it began with Martin 'ever so politely confirming what sorts of themes, ideas as well as many game-related aspects I had envisioned for the game.'

In an interview with Xbox, Miyazaki said: 'This allowed us to have many free and creative conversations regarding the game, in which Mr. Martin later used as a base to write the overarching mythos for the game world itself.'

'This mythos proved to be full of interesting characters and drama along with a plethora of mystical and mysterious elements as well. It was a wonderful source of stimulus for me and the development staff. Elden Ring’s world was constructed using this mythos and stimulus as a base,' he continued.

News of the project was floating about in the gaming world for a long time before it was actually released, but now that it's here fans are able to look for signs of Martin's involvement. It might not be immediately evident for some, but this week Jonathan Bolding of PC Gamer confirmed that he had found an Easter Egg relating to Martin, and once you know what it is, you'll wonder how you missed it in the first place.

Think of the names of the main characters in the game; for example Godfrey, Rennala, Radagon and Marika. Everyone carrying the eight named Great Runes, they all have names starting with one of three letters; G, R or M. Notably, these are the exact initials of one George R. R. Martin.

As well as the aforementioned characters, we also have Godwyn, Morgott, Mogh, Radahn, Rykard, Ranni, Renna, Malenia and Miquella.

Martin doesn't appear to have spoken out about the Easter Egg as of yet, but there's no denying that having your own name inspire the names of multiple characters is certainly a fun way to integrate yourself into the game.
