Elan Ruskin, a developer behind Spider-Man, revealed an overlooked Easter egg regarding the game’s inhabitants.

The tweet, embedded below, dealt with how members of the Jewish faith are represented in the game:

As stated in Ruskin’s tweet, people of the Jewish faith do not work on Saturdays, which is reflected in Spider-Man‘s overworld. IGN later confirmed that the Jewish community will not spawn in the game on Saturdays, with that being the day of rest for the Sabbath.

Ruskin later confirmed in the Twitter thread that Spider-Man checks the PlayStation 4’s internal clock to see if the day is Saturday and then spawns characters accordingly.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
