Asmongold Quits Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

Even the 'Cozy Game' Master Has His Limits

Popular Twitch streamer and YouTuber Asmongold has recently made headlines by quitting the highly anticipated Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. Known for his prowess in gaming, Asmongold’s decision has sparked a conversation about the game’s difficulty level and its impact on player enjoyment.

Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC has quickly garnered a reputation for its exceptional difficulty. Players have reported that the game’s mechanics, particularly the attack combos, can be overwhelmingly challenging. Asmongold himself noted that the game’s attack combos often stun players, locking them into animations that can lead to instant death. This level of difficulty has led him to conclude that while he could potentially beat the game, he simply does not find it enjoyable enough to continue.

Interestingly, this decision comes shortly after Asmongold referred to Elden Ring as his “cozy game” just last week. This shift in perspective highlights the stark contrast between the base game and its DLC in terms of difficulty.

The irony is not lost on his followers, especially considering Asmongold’s previous criticisms of gaming journalists for their struggles with difficult games. Now, he finds himself in a similar position, acknowledging that his days of excelling at such challenging games may be behind him.

The community has had mixed reactions to Asmongold’s decision. Some players sympathize with his frustration, agreeing that the DLC’s difficulty can detract from the overall enjoyment of the game. Others see it as a testament to the game’s design, arguing that the challenge is what makes Elden Ring and its expansions so rewarding.
