Elden Ring Modder Add Hard Mode: It’s unlikely that the word “too easy” comes to mind when you think about Elden Ring.
After all, the game’s constant barrage of challenging boss fights is meant to provide an often impossible task that’ll threaten to drive even the most seasoned gamers to their limits.
Although survival mechanics and a battle arena have already added more optional obstacles to the Lands Between, one modder has gone all out and given the game a straight-up hard mode, suggesting that some players simply aren’t feeling the heat from Elden Ring’s numerous trials and terrors as they would prefer.
If Such a Thing Is Even Possible, Elden Ring Gets Even More Difficult
The “Hard Mode” version in question was posted by modder TrashPanda69420, who claims that the inspiration for its development was simply because they “felt Elden Ring was too simple, so I built hard mode.”
How were they able to complete this rather pointless mission? The solution involves several tweaks that will make you shout “come on” at your screen.
The first of them impacts the game’s locations of grace. Which affect by the mod and no longer heal your character in any way. Yes, not even a single health point.
That’s not the end of your health problems; flasks of crimson tears will no longer heal you by more than one health point as you reach higher levels; instead, they will stop working altogether.
If the mod didn’t also make sure that foes dealt new game plus-equivalent damage without dropping any additional runes. This lack of healing might not be such a big deal.
In addition, your health and concentration point meters will destroy for maximum disorientation. So you’ll need to be ready to keep in the dark about what’s happening.
Finally, as a final kick in the teeth, anytime you can heal, doing so will cost up stamina. Which is the icing on this frightening sundae.
TrashPanda69420 seems to believe that these changes will make the game impossible to defeat. But he also makes the following promise: “If someone beats my mod fairly and squarely, I will make the bosses tougher and weaponry worse.”
After that, they go into full evil genius mode and promise to keep making the game challenging until nobody can beat it.
