Elden Ring Just Became A Star Wars Game

Elden Ring Just Became A Star Wars Game

With it being May the 4th, it only makes sense we write something related to Star Wars. The galaxy far, far away, is having something of a resurgence in video games, with the likes of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2, Quantic Dream's Star Wars Eclipse, and hopes of a Mandalorian title paving the way for a brighter future. As long as it isn't like the sequel trilogy, we should be okay.

Of course, Star Wars has long transcended beyond its own franchise. With crossovers galore, we've seen lightsabers in Fortnite, a whole Angry Birds subseries, and the might of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Now, the Lands Between are becoming our very own fiery homage to Mustafar.

What Is The Elden Ring And Star Wars Crossover?

We can hear the heavy breathing of Darth Vader, as the Dark Lord himself is doing the Imperial March into FromSoftware's gruelling Souls-like game. Elden Ring modders have been ruining the game since it slashed its way onto PC, but with some creative flair, you can effectively make the Lands Between into anything you want. It doesn't have to be full of Shrek and Thomas the Tank Engine.

Over on Nexus Mods, Xelerate has three Star Wars mods. The first puts Darth Vader himself in the game as a character build. The others swap the Godskin Peeler twinblade for lightsabers, and yes, Darth Maul's signature double-bladed red saber is here. We previously covered how someone unofficially added the horned Dathomirian and his lightsaber, but this is so much better.

Darth Vader stomping around Liurnia of the Lakes like it's Dagobah is all well and good, but what about Darth Maul? Xelerate has promised a Maul skin pack is "coming soon," meaning you'll have to wait a bit longer before those sinister Sith will be able to lock lightsabers in battle. We're also told to "stay tuned for more Star Wars-themed mods," so fingers crossed for a Mandalorian pack with Boba Fett and Din Djarin.

 

What's Next For Star Wars?

Of course, you might know that we've already had a Star Wars Souls-like before. Released in 2019, Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order took the success of FromSoft's Dark Souls series and put a sci-fi spin on the genre without feeling too forced. Much like Elden RingFallen Order was one of the best games from the year it was released. Jump forward to 2022, and we can't wait to hear more about Fallen Order 2

We're promised some big announcements from May 4th and the upcoming Star Wars Celebration, which will hopefully give us a glimpse at what's next for Cal Kestis. There's a "new hope" that the tentatively titled Fallen Order 2 will be able to rival Elden Ring by fusing the renewed popularity of the Souls-like and our love of all things Wampa and Wookiee.
