Elden Ring Mod for Seamless 4-Player Co-op Enters Beta This Week

A PC mod that brings seamless, four-player co-op with shared game progression to Elden Ring is entering beta this week.

While the game does support three-player co-op organically, its designed to be more of a fleeting experience generally intended for one-off boss fights. A mod from YouTube user LukeYui shows players being summoned from the first main Site of Grace, and who can seemingly stay as long as they like.

Summoned players will even stick around after the host dies, putting the defeated player into spectator mode, unlike Elden Ring’s normal system that returns them home. If the beta is a success, this essentially means that PC players can start and play through the entirety of Elden Ring with up to three friends in a shared game world.

The mod also takes into account other limitations of normal Elden Ring multiplayer by allowing mounts to be summoned by all players, and “friendly fire” can even be activated by turning on a PvP mode. Item drops from bosses will be applied to all players, progress is shared, and more.

The beta begins on May 27 but LukeYui didn’t give any indication as to how long it will last or when the official release date for the mod will be.

The Elden Ring modding scene has brought some pretty wild and wacky creations to the game including characters from Star Wars, One Piece, and more, plus a Battle Royale that pits every demigod boss against each other.

Elden Ring has proved somewhat of a cultural phenomenon since it was release in February, with players finding a ton of different ways to interact with the game. People have played it using a Fisher Price toy, the Nintendo Switch Ring Fit controller, and someone has even made a working VR version of the game.

Elden Ring has also been beaten in under seven minutes by a speedrunner, completed without taking or dealing damage, and fans are also modding every other entertainment franchise imaginable into the game.

In our 10/10 review, IGN said: “Elden Ring is a massive iteration on what FromSoftware began with the Souls series, bringing its relentlessly challenging combat to an incredible open world that gives us the freedom to choose our own path.”
