Playing titles like Elden Ring can age you by years. After all, the merciless level of difficulty, the rock-hard bosses and far too many lost runes like to cause one or the other gray hair. Several fans of the FromSoftware game show that you can also keep fit at the Elden Ring – namely with a dance mat.
Dancing to the Elden Lord
Gamers like the Twitch streamer PeekingBoo or Reddit user Ugoroszczak not only make life more difficult for themselves, but also earn the respect of the community. Because both occupy dance mats like those of the rhythm game Dance Dance Revolution with new orders in order to assert themselves against the bosses of the intermediate lands.
PeekingBoo shows a video how it can put the first stumbling block for Elden Ring newcomers in its place. His performance might not win a flower pot in a dance competition, but defeating the dreaded Tree Sentinel should be reward enough:

Ugoroszczak even manages to bring the very last main boss of Elden Ring to his knees while dancing. Of course, be warned of serious spoilers here! If you haven’t played through Elden Ring yet, you’d better skip the following video, in which the Reddit user finishes the game on a dance mat instead of a controller:

Elden Ring fans, Bloodborne, Dark Souls, Sekiro and Co. always face the most absurd challenges in order to play through their favorite titles. For example, in Dark Souls 3 we reported on players who ventured into the games, which are notorious for their level of difficulty, on dance mats.
In the most recent example, Elden Ring, you grab eleven bananas or one Ring Fit-Controller der Nintendo Switch
