Getting pulverized by a nightmarish boss, naively jumping off a cliff thanks to a message, dying when you're one hit away from victory – these are just some of the cherished memories you'd want to capture during your playthrough of Elden Ring. Unfortunately, FromSoftware's latest title came without a photo mode. Joking aside, the game is beautiful to look at, and despite all the perfect scores, many players wish it had a photo mode. However, as they say in the PC gaming world – mods find a way.
As spotted by PC Gamer, Otis_Inf is a creator who has incorporated photo mode mods – or enhancements for existing ones – for a number of titles, including God of War, Cyberpunk 2077, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Elden Ring is the latest game to join this list, giving you the ability to share your nightmarish adventures with the world.
However, they have warned that you'll need to play the game offline. "Using the anti-cheat workaround, you play offline so there's no way to get banned. You can't use it online as the anticheat has to be active for that, which immediately makes it impossible to use the tools", they replied to a question about getting banned for using the mod.
Another feature that many people wish was incorporated into the game is a pause option. FromSoftware is notorious for making people choose between a combat encounter and the toilet. However, another mod had incorporated this option into the game. The mod is simply titled 'Pause the Game', and gives you a brief respite from the game's relentlessness. All you need to do is press the P key.
However, the developer of this mode doesn't want players to use it to get an upper hand over enemies, hence they have incorporated a "fast-forward" feature for when you unpause. This means that if an enemy is mid-swing when you pause, the game will jump ahead a few frames when you resume.
A quick PSA if you're currently playing Elden Ring on PC, Bandai Namco has announced that there's "an issue in the PC version of Elden Ring, where save data is not being saved correctly to the Steam Cloud under certain conditions." You can check out the details and recommendations here.
