Elden Ring creator Hidetaka Miyazaki is fine with playing Elden Ring in co-op mode – even if you use mods to make friends “from start to finish.”

“It’s definitely not something we’re strongly against or want to belittle, and we want to play the whole game together,” Miyazaki said. “In terms of the situation we were in with Elden Ring, it was simply about wanting a more flexible casual style – join the game, defeat a boss, drop out.

Upon its initial release in February 2022, Elden Ring was an instant hit. In just over two weeks, 12 million copies have been moved, with publisher Bandai Namco and developer FromSoftware describing these sales as “a great start for the new franchise.”

By the time we reached May, sales topped 13.4 million, rising further to 16.6 million by August. A year after its debut in Tarnished, it was revealed that Elden Ring had sold 20 million copies.
