The demo of a new mod being created is now available, which takes the themes of Elden Ring and reimagines them in the huge sandbox world of Minecraft.
Since its launch in 2009, Minecraft became one of the greatest video games of all time. This includes in terms of physical extent. Except for something like No Man’s Sky, Mojang’s sandbox IP is easily one of the biggest video games in terms of map size. Given this huge landscape to play with, fans have spent the past decade creating or recreating extremely complex structures, and sometimes those projects bring in worlds from other franchises.
As spotted by PCGamesN, a new mod for Minecraft by a user called SeriousCraft is currently in development which is based on Ring of Elden. According to the download page on Planet Minecraft, “Elden World” is about 40% complete and a demo is currently available for anyone who wants to try it so far. The mod contains four square kilometers to discover, which also includes more than 20 dungeons and castles. For fans of both games, this seems like a very interesting project to check out, especially once it’s finished. Currently, there does not appear to be a launch window for the final release.
It’s no surprise that FromSoftware’s latest action-RPG has been fan-made Minecraft project. Since its release in February, Ring of Elden became one of the highest-rated games of all time, with a Metacritic score of 96 on current-gen consoles and 94 on PC, at the time of writing. Those familiar with the game will recognize some of the elements of SeriousCraft’s world, with images showing off some of the rather spectacular work taking place on the map.
FromSoftware’s game has been influencing people since its launch, and this project isn’t the first of its kind. A few months ago, another Minecraft user built Ring of Elden-inspired terrain, showing not only a great amount of building talent, but also how much the game has impacted the community, especially fans of Minecraft.
It’s not uncommon for other game franchises to enter Mojang’s open world title. The tastes of Skyrim have also found their place in Minecraft, with fans building the city of Solitude or Bleak Falls Barrow. Such recreations are impressive, allowing players to imagine what other games would look like if they were built using 1×1 blocks. It remains to be seen what other cool projects the community will come up with, but obviously there’s still so much life left in the sandbox game.
Minecraft is available for Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
