The term Elden Ring multiplayer might seem a bit problematic to regular gamers. However, most gamers know the game really well. In fact, it is a recent 2022 release. Bandai Namco Entertainment published this game by FromSoftware. According to Metacritic, the video game received “universal acclaim”. Moreover, on OpenCritic, the game ranks second among the most reviewed games. In fact, within 24 hours of release, the game accumulated a stunning 900,000 viewers on Twitch. The game also won multiple awards even before its publication. Therefore, the claim made in the beginning might seem out of the way.
However, a closer look at the game would solve this confusion. Technically speaking, Elden Ring multiplayer is a reality. The game allows co-op gameplay. However, the developers have included this mode in such a complex manner that gamers at present hardly care about it. However, YukeYui seems to have changed the co-op scenario for the game, with his unique mod. This very mod, in fact, rules out all restrictions and lets you enjoy Elden Ring multiplayer in a completely satisfactory way. Read the article to know more about the mod.
The Mod By YukeYui
YukeYui has come up with a great mod for Elden Ring. This mod seems to have solved the problems associated with the co-op gameplay. Co-op is a shortened form for Cooperative video games. These games basically allow gamers to play together as teammates. In fact, co-op gaming allows players to assist each other in various ways and also provides a unique gaming experience. In fact, an ideal co-op game will have no restrictions in gameplay and this is exactly what the new mod does with Elden Ring.
The mod allows you to play the entire game along with your teammates without a single restriction. Therefore, this suggests that using this mod, you can play the game in co-op mode right from the tutorial to the final boss fight. In fact, what is more, interesting is that, you can do this within a single co-op session. Moreover, after clearing an area or defeating enemy bosses, the co-operators will no longer be sent home. Previously, after the death of a player, the session used to get terminated. But using the mod, a player will respawn in the same world near the last used bonfire.
Elden Ring multiplayer had yet another problematic aspect. Various barriers and fog walls restricted the multiplayer zone. The mod by YukeYui has done away with such restricting elements. Moreover, the mod synchronizes all map waypoints. This very fact allows you to explore the entire map along with your team. Using this mod, the entire team can also use torrents together in a session. What is more interesting is that the mod helps prevent enemy de-sync. Therefore, the mod has really made Elden Ring multiplayer a true co-op in every sense of the term.
The Mod And A Few Changes in Elden Ring Multiplayer
In order to make so many interesting alterations, the mod has altered the base experience considerably. Several balance tweaks have been implemented. This includes inflicting anyone who dies in a co-op session with rot, adding a third tier of enemy scaling and locking anyone who dies in a boss fight into a spectator mode. All these have made it possible to roam freely around the map along with your teammates.
There are certain things that do not go well with the co-op mode. One such thing is invasions. Therefore, the mod has done away with invasions. Moreover, there had been reports about the Stakes of Marika causing connectivity problems. Therefore, YukeYui’s mod has removed the Stakes of Marika to improve connectivity.
The new mod by YukeYui, therefore, aims to make Elden Ring multiplayer a true co-op mode. In fact, with all the above-mentioned alterations, the game will become even more accepted by gamers. However, the od also issues a warning for all. The mod is still in the making. The development is not complete. Therefore, there might be multiple bugs involved in it. In fact, the players will surely encounter a number of bugs. Therefore, anyone willing to use it should accept this fact before going for it. However, once the development is complete, it will be one of its kind in the market.
