Elden Ring is one of our most-anticipated games of 2022 (more on those, soon) - and we were very impressed by it during the game’s network test demo in early November, calling it “a remarkable fusion of Dark Souls and Breath of the Wild”. And now, just as those two classic fantasy titles have been modded over and over, so Elden Ring has been tweaked- too, bringing a famous face from previous-gen open-world gaming into its lead role.
Yep, as Kotaku reports, one enterprising modder has managed to put Carl ‘CJ’ Johnson from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas into Elden Ring. More specifically, into Elden Ring’s network test demo - a limited-time event which some crafty custom firmware has made playable right now, like, today, if you want to. And know where to look, of course (you’re on the internet, this isn’t difficult).
Check out our gameplay from the Elden Ring network test, below…
Modder ‘Dropoff’ has put CJ into Elden Ring, and tweeted some screens showing the famous GTA character in the fantasy world coming our way in February 2022 from FromSoftware, the makers of the Dark Souls series, Bloodborne and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
There was also a video of the mod in action, but it’s already been deleted from YouTube. Instead, you’ll have to make do with the tweet-embedded gif below.
This won’t be the last time we see something ridiculously out of place modded into Elden Ring, of course - with Dark Souls mods of the past covering franchise features from Fortnite and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and modern-day firearms added to the games alongside oversized bosses and silly ‘you died’ messages, you can bet that this one will get stupid, very quickly, when it’s released on PC on February 25, 2022.
Elden Ring, which features lore building contributions from Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, is also coming to PlayStation 4 and 5 and Xbox consoles on the same day in February - though we’re not holding out for too many zany mods on those platforms.
