Playing Souls for the first time is a unique experience. Elden Ring was so anticipated beyond its long waiting period because it offered players the chance to immerse themselves in a world like Dark Souls or Hollow Knight, and explore every nook and cranny.
FromSoftware's Dark Souls franchise fans knew the new entry would offer unique challenges to overcome as well as a whole new world to explore. Elden Ring's ability to deliver on this and more is why it has received such acclaim, especially when compared to more linear titles such as Dark Souls 3, Sekiro, and Bloodborne.
While Elden Ring isn't Dark Souls 4, it's not hard to argue that it is Dark Souls 4. FromSoftware remixed everything in the Souls games into a large open world filled with surprises. However, some passionate fans managed to beat FromSoftware to the punch in the long lead up to Elden Ring's launch.
There were still some gameplay complaints regarding spell strength and build viability. It will be possible to get much of the feeling of Elden Ring without leaving Dark Souls 3: The Convergence mode.
It has become a favorite among fans to create new experiences from Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition since it was released for the PC. DSfix, a patch created by prominent modder Durante to optimize the PC version, was one of the most famous mods made early on.
While sometimes accompanied by malicious hacking, the Blue Sentinel mod helped combat that as well. Even Bloodborne joined the party with new bosses and a 60 FPS update.
In February 2022, Dark Souls 3: The Convergence released the 2.2.1 update, which was created by CouchJockey, TigerG92, AronTheBaron, SinloreKain, Freemathieuroy, and Karma after a few years of development.
With countless new play styles and ways to progress through the game, this mod has taken a great deal of time and effort to develop. Dark Souls 3 mods like Convergence and Cinders are often compared, and Convergence wins the comparison for some because of its strong commitment to a single goal.
Overall, Dark Souls 3: The Convergence is an excellent reason to return to Dark Souls 3. It is not the most expansive open world, but it is more open than it was in the original game, thanks to Elden Ring's improvements. The two Dark Souls games seem to have evolved the Dark Souls formula in a similar manner.
It offers incredible replayability in a condensed environment and new features and conveniences that compensate for Convergence's lack of optional content. Not to mention the boss refight system, roguelike gauntlet mode, and the possibility of item-crafting builds and a new take on the Deprived class.
