Elden Ring’s co-op mod has renewed the adventure

On what was to be our 10th attempt against Elden Ring’s first big boss, Godrick the Graft, the big guy froze. A friend and I used the Smooth co-op mod (opens in a new tab) and Godrick, despite literally having a fire-breathing dragon’s head for an arm, decided to surrender. My fellow Tarnished got roasted a second earlier, so it was just me and Godrick the Frozen. Cautiously, I turned to him, ready for his brain to turn on. This has never been the case. I cut off the last half of his health bar and returned him to the ether. LEGEND SHOT. The mod may have broken it, but we also made several attempts and just wanted to move on. A victory is a victory.

The Seamless Co-op mod fixes all the problems with Elden Ring’s terrible multiplayer summoning system, but it also introduces a whole host of new ones once you play with it. Sometimes they’re funny: my friend often saw my character riding an invisible horse. Sometimes they’re useful: when one of you dies, enemies don’t reset, so you can cheese harder dungeons. And sometimes they’re legitimately game-changing: your ability to lock disappears in the fight against Radahn, essentially preventing anyone playing a caster from doing damage.
