Thanks to an upcoming mod, Elden Ring will be getting true co-op, meaning players will be able to play together anywhere any time.
There’s something to be said about the archaic online multiplayer system that Elden Ring uses. That something might be ‘it’s interesting’ but it might also be ‘it’s a pain in the ass’. Thankfully though, modder LukeYui is making it so that Elden Ring will get true co-op thanks to a mod they’re working on.
Currently scheduled to be receiving a public beta on May 27 via NexusMods, this Elden Ring true co-op mod will allow for seamless online play with friends.
A video posted by LukeYui showed off all of the features that will be available in the mod. For one, playing with friends looks to be a whole lot easier.
what are the features of the mod?
Not only easier, but faster too. As riding your horse has been enabled for this mod, which typically is only allowed in offline play. Players will also be able to share the fruits of their labour. As both players get rewards when beating a big boss.
If a player wants to have a friendly duel, player versus player can be turned on and off. Death is also less of a problem. While in the main game players would have to be resummoned, in this mod players stay connected to their friend. Players can also spectate their friend while the bossfight is going on if they died.
Apparently there will be a max of four players per party. And enemies’ difficulty will scale depending on the amount of players there are.
Overall, it sounds like it’s going to be a really great mod for Elden Ring fans who just want to play with their friends without any hassle. It’s the latest and most practical in a long line of already very good mods. And one that will probably prove to be pretty popular.
You can still buy Elden Ring from £49.95 on PS5, PS4, and Xbox Series X.
