Survival mode makes life in The Lands Between even harder
Launched today (June 7), Elden Ring: Survival Mode is a mod for the game from FromSoftware that means players have to deal with daily dangers ranging from hunger and thirst to crafting their own weapons.
As detailed on Nexus Mods, Elden Ring: Survival Mode acts similarly to the survival modes found in games like Fallout 4 and Skyrim: Special Edition. This means that whoever downloads the mod will have to find food and water for their characters and cure any illnesses they catch.
The mod also brings several changes that are more common in hardcore games such as Rust and Ark: Survival Evolved: there are no weapons to find or buy – instead players have to craft everything themselves. As an added touch, the night in Ring of Elden will be much darker in survival mode – which means players might be better off spending their nights by Sites of Grace.
However, each of these features is optional, meaning players can choose which parts of the mod they want to play with.
Elden Ring: Survival Mode was created by Grimrukh, a modder who is best known for creating dark souls fashion daughters of ashes and co-creation Dark Souls: Nightfall. To share what fans can expect from their latest mod, Grimrukh shared a trailer which you can watch below.
