Elden Ring, Easy Mode and Hard Mode Now Possible to Choose
Is Elden Ring too easy or too difficult for you? There is now a mod for both. You can set the hard and easy gameplay with this mode.
Elden Ring is celebrating huge success, so many outside of the Souls fan base should take a look at the new action-adventure. New players should quickly spot the hard difficulty level.
