Following the release of the much-anticipated expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, for the action fantasy RPG Elden Ring, Tarnished players globally have been exploring the Realm of Shadow, much to their untimely demise. While developer FromSoftware has released its latest patch notes following claims that its difficulty was too much for some Tarnished to burden, a recent interview with its game director has Elden Ring fans hoping for more content outside the Lands Between.

Hidetaka Miyazaki, who also serves as FromSoftware's president, was interviewed by the British publication The Guardian, where the game director shared comments regarding the development of the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC and what the future holds for the action RPG. As Miyazaki confirmed that he indeed played Elden Ring as preparation for the recently released DLC, adding that he sucks "at video games," he revealed that the developer may be keen on exploring the Lands Between outside of the gaming sphere.

Understandably, Shadow of the Erdtree concludes the developer's run with Elden Ring as Miyazaki isn't a fan of sequels; except for Dark Souls, he revealed that he wouldn't mind exploring the fictional world "in a different medium."  As for what that medium may be, he explained that a film adaptation of the action RPG is an idea he would be interested in as he doesn't "see any reason to deny another interpretation or adaptation of Elden Ring."

"But I don't think myself, or FromSoftware, have the knowledge or ability to produce something in a different medium. So that's where a very strong partner would come into play. We'd have to build a lot of trust and agreement on whatever it is we're trying to achieve, but there's interest, for sure."

Legendary fantasy writer George R.R. Martin was involved in the development of Elden Ring in terms of helping construct the world; FromSoftware may have a partner to help them close the gap on a potential film adaptation. What remains is a production company and a director to visualize the stunning open world of the Lands Between and adapt the main story, themes, and concepts that have been widely praised by critics and fans alike for the big screens of Hollywood.
