These Elden Ring dual-blade lightsaber mods are non-canon

Modders on the Elden Ring Nexus are now chasing the legendary nonsense of the Skyrim mod scene, with two ambitious ne’er do wells implementing dual-blade lightsabers in the game.

The Phantom Menace’s reputation is mostly hit at this point, but the infamous Darth Maul saber has proven to be a boon for roleplayers and cosplayers all over the world. I challenge you to find a single “OC” that wields an ordinary lightsaber these days.

Elden Ring’s analog twin blades already owe a lot to this iconic piece of sci-fi cinema, as there’s really no historical example of the shape to draw. The Double-blade lightsaber pack by Xelerate and Eleonara’s lightsaber by KeyGerstrike take things even further.

Both mods offer a variety of color options for their model swaps, but to be honest, I think Xelerate achieves the effect in more colors. Still, they both show impressive dedication to an admittedly silly idea and substitute different weapons, meaning there’s nothing stopping you from using both.

Meanwhile, this appears to be Warframe’s armor mod shown in screenshots of Eleonara’s lightsaber, and Xelerate has expressed an intention to release the Darth Maul player model soon. The purity of a developer’s vision is good and all, but perhaps an even greater truth can be found by going against that vision, not unlike the path taken by Ranni the Snow Witch, in the very lore of Elden Ring, who defied the natural order of the world.
