Elden Ring almost included Dark Souls’ most controversial feature


Elden Ring may have once included a weapon and armor durability system, possibly similar to that used in the Dark Souls series.

The removed Elden Ring mechanic was discovered in a datamine by Twitter user JesterPatches, who found text lines reading “weapon broken”, “armor at risk”, and “armor broken” in the game’s backend files (thanks, PCGN). The messages would have presumably popped up when your equipment had either partially degraded or fully broken.
