Elden Ring’s Horse Attacked at One Point: It’s not unusual to hear that some of the content made during the development of Elden Ring may have cut in the end. This is one of the most famous and influential games released in the last few years. The game’s unique magical mount, Torrent, may have had some more tricks up its sleeve in the game’s history.
Dark Souls and Elden Ring data miner and hacker Zullie the Witch says that the strange horse and goat hybrid had a more significant role in combat before the game came out. Zullie found a lot of animations that are unique to Torrent but not in the released version of the game. One of them is a powerful backward kick that could send enemies flying.
It doesn’t matter how good Torrent is at getting people where they need to go and how important it to defeat the Night’s Cavalry in Elden Ring. Zullie has found that Torrent does have unique animations for attacking, sitting down, and even freely roaming around. The horse-like creature acts more like an extension of the player than an independent thing. Only when it spawns in does, it exist. When the player gets off the bike, it goes away.

Zullie says that even though Torrent’s kick attack has removed, it’s still fun to use because it lets you throw enemies into the air. It’s also hard to get it right, and it doesn’t affect any bigger enemy. Elden Ring has a lot of things that aren’t very well know. FromSoftware may have decided that there was no point in making Torrent more complicated than it needed to be because there are so many things that aren’t very well know.
It’s not a secret that FromSoftware has difficulty teaching people how to play Elden Ring. It’s also possible that the apparent smoothing of Torrent’s behavior may have had something to do with that. As soon as Torrent is no longer riding, he immediately despawn. This way, players don’t have to worry about losing their mount or if it kill or wound by roaming enemies, which are many.
That doesn’t mean Torrent is useless by any means. Players of the Elden Ring already got Torrent into places that were forbidden. Previously, Zollie has a great source of information about From Software games that were cut or had extra content that never use. There will likely be more Elden Ring content from her in the future. There are a lot of chances that Torrent will be in some of them as well, though.
Elden Ring is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. It is also available for Xbox One.
