Elden Ring Modder got the pre-release build and streamed it

Video game streamer and modder Lance McDonald somehow got his hands on a preview version of Elden Ring and recently streamed it on Twitch.

In a now-deleted Tweet, McDonald claimed that the preview version has “LOTS of unfinished stuff, different items, enemies, mechanics, character names, and full debug camera mode.” The version comes from about two months before the release, according to McDonald. While this version may contain some cut content, it’s also clearly unfinished. McDonald noted in the stream that some weapons have the wrong move sets and that some NPC quest lines don’t trigger properly. McDonald is a prolific modder and content creator, probably best known for creating a 60fps patch for Bloodborne.

Although From Software has not commented on how Elden Ring has changed during development, several other hackers and modders have found abandoned mechanics or ideas when researching the game’s source test and network test build. For example, McDonald contributed to finding a cropped dream capture questline. YouTuber Zellie the Witch discovered that Torrent used to have a seizure. The discovery of this preliminary version could yet reveal more previously unknown secrets. Because there is such a dedicated community around From Software games, we get a fascinatingly incomplete understanding of what the game was like during development, and what it might have been like in an alternate world.

In other Elden Ring news, the RPG recently received a new update, which allowed players to place multiple summon signs and weaken popular PvP builds.
