The Lord of the Rings’ primary antagonist Sauron has come to Elden Ring thanks to a new armour mod.
The mod comes from MaxTheMiracle, and reskins the player with Sauron’s black armour and humanoid figure seen in the likes of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings film adaptations (but without that imposing height).
This mod is still in its early days, but has been released to coincide with Amazon’s Rings of Power series. As such, the current weapon moveset used within this mod is borrowed from another mod, as work on it continues behind the scenes.
You can see it in action in its current state below, thanks to Garden of Eyes. Here, they take on Elden Ring boss, Radagon of the Golden Order.
Last month, publisher Bandai Namco announced that Elden Ring has now topped 16.6m sales worldwide. In addition to these GRReat numbers, the publisher has also hinted at more to come in this fantasy world, calling it “a fantastic start for the new franchise”.
“Much effort was placed into creating Elden Ring so that we could exceed the expectations of our fans worldwide,” Bandai Namco boss Yasuo Miyakawa said in March.
“In like manner, we will continue our efforts in expanding the brand beyond the game itself, and into everyone’s daily life.”
