Elden Ring Darth Vader’s mod is awesome… the most awesome

Why not, huh? Modder Xelerate decided that what was missing from the Elden Ring was the most famous Sith Lord in the galaxy, and so the Darth Vader Elden Ring mod was born (thank you G+). The mod replaces the Confessor Set in-game with Darth Vader’s outfit, though unfortunately it doesn’t come with its own lightsaber: you will need another Xelerate mod for this.

Here are some footage of Darth Vader fighting Godrick the Grafted, which is quite a phrase.

Godrick doesn’t know the power of the dark side!

The Elden Ring mod has now reached the point of near-absurdity, with modders racing to fit the most unlikely suspects in the Midlands (such as Ace of One Piece). The ones that seem especially appropriate, however, are the many, many mods that are adding characters from older Soulsborne games to Elden Ring. Given the game’s heritage and the multiverse things that underpin these worlds, it feels like something of a homecoming.

There are also some very practical things too: how to make the first merchant in the game sell absolutely everything.

Imperial bulletins aside, Elden Ring has recently received a small hotfix, that followed a major update (Patch Patches). There’s also no shortage of escapes from other players: someone found a mysterious coliseum that may well be destined for DLCwhile others just create mini-summon armies to pulverize bosses.
