Have you also ridden through the world of Elden Ring or been involved in risky battles? Then you’ve probably heard the old-fashioned soundtrack. A Reddit user found out that the lyrics are actually nothing more than computer-generated nonsense.

Furthermore, he tries to following post to prove his claims as he appears to have messaged some musicians who worked on Elden Ring. One of them confirms that most of the lyrics are computer generated and have only been adapted to resemble ancient languages and fit the dark fantasy setting perfectly.
Of course, none of the statements were officially confirmed, which is why you should take this information with a pinch of salt as long as you don’t also have a perfect command of Latin. But what is certain is the high degree of difficulty of the survival mod, which you should definitely take a look at:
