Dark Souls Mod Lets You Play As Your Favourite Boss

A mod team has managed to work their magic and enable players to work as their favourite bosses from Dark Souls.

Datehack has been working on their project for ages, and after a few tweaks has finally cracked it to allow total freedom in-game as the baddest, best characters from the game.

As ComicBook reports: “The latest step for the mod team is called Age of Fire and is good for the very first Dark Souls game. There is some bad news, however. It’s only applicable to the Prepare to Die edition, not the recent remaster. It will also include the Debug Mode exe in order to work properly as well.”

Look how f*cking cool this is…

The mod’s creator said on Reddit: “Several years ago I began a project for Dark Souls 1 which took me quite a time to make to this level,

“The Dark Souls 1 mod was not the level it should have been. Due to me working on Dark Souls 3 I had to post-pone it for the future and remove access to it because it was very limited back in time. Now I am working again and I am willing to share it with anyone once I am done with a few enemies and setup stuff.”

They continued: “As you can see we will be able to play as any enemy/boss FULL Map this means you can finish the map with your favourite enemy under your control. You will be able to do any single move they do. You will be able to go anywhere but not between maps due to game engine limitations.”

This comes as an incredible streamer has managed to beat the Nameless King in Dark Souls 3 just by using a dance mat.

Luality uploaded the impressive feat onto her YouTube account, although you can also follow her on Twitch.

One YouTuber commented: “This chick is better at Dark Souls than I’ll ever be”, while another added: “This is incredible! Using a controller seems too easy now.”

While we’re on the subject, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the upcoming game which is being made by FromSoftware. These guys not only made the Dark Souls but Bloodborne as well. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was announced this year at E3 along with a mechanic that made people think it would be easier than Dark Souls and alike. The resurrection mechanic is what made fans think that it would be ‘easy mode’. However the developers told GameSpot that the game will “probably even more challenging than previous FromSoftware games.”

Hidetaka Miyazaki also said this about the upcoming game:

If you are that player who likes to take their time and carefully piece things together and learn the enemies’ weaknesses and positioning, and observe everything, you’re going to have a great time. It’s that sense of discovery as you explore the three-dimensional maps–you’re going to find something, maybe a new prosthetic tool that makes you think, ‘Hey, why don’t I use this against that enemy?’ When that clicks and when it works, that’s going to be the sense of satisfaction for that player.

“Whereas the other [player] who just likes to rush in there, go katana-on-katana and feel that blade-to-blade, blow-by-blow gameplay, they’re going to feel that intensity. They’re going to get that really high level challenge that’s probably even more challenging than previous From games. So we feel everyone’s going to be able to have something to suit them.

If you aren’t familiar with the game then it is a game which is set in Japan. You, the player, take control of a Shinobi (A Shinobi is basically a ninja and are deemed dishonourable by the samurai.). This Shinobi that you play as was left for dead after this lord was kidnapped and his arm cut off. The missing arm is then replaced by a prosthetic and then named Sekiro, or “the one-armed wolf”. This prosthetic allows you to add tools and gadgets to help you fight on your way to rescuing your lord. Along with the prosthetic you also have a katana.

Doesn’t this sound fun? But also now very difficult. We will have to wait and see.
