Elden Ring Fans Demand Boss Rematches Post-Shadow of the Erdtree

Jul 02, 2024 1:18 PM

FromSoftware's latest expansion for Elden Ring, Shadow of the Erdtree, has given players an array of new bosses to conquer. However, fans are now requesting a feature that allows for boss rematches, similar to Sekiro’s reflection of strength or Dark Souls 2’s bonfire ascetics. Enthusiasts are hoping for an easily accessible system within the game, perhaps in the colosseums, to fight past bosses again without the need to manage multiple saves or aid as a summon. The community’s plea highlights the desire to extend the game’s replayability and potentially even include bosses from previous FromSoftware titles.

How can players rematch bosses in Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdtree DLC?n

Currently, rematching bosses in Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is not straightforward. Players often save specific game states or help others as a summon, but there is no dedicated system for rematches. Fans have requested that FromSoftware incorporate such a feature in future updates.

Elden Ring is an action RPG developed by FromSoftware, renowned for its punishing difficulty and rich lore. The game was directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, in collaboration with fantasy novelist George R.R. Martin, who contributed to the world-building. Since its release, Elden Ring has garnered significant acclaim and a passionate player base, making any potential updates or additions highly anticipated.

Adding a rematch feature like Sekiro’s reflection of strength could massively enhance Elden Ring’s replayability and satisfy a lot of hardcore fans. It feels like a natural progression for FromSoftware to keep refining how we can engage with their bosses, especially in such a rich and expansive world.

FromSoftware's knack for challenging yet rewarding gameplay shines in Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdtree, but the community's call for boss rematches is spot-on. Adding a feature for re-fighting bosses could inject fresh replayability, making every encounter a more accessible part of the epic.
