- Elden Ring incorporates the presence of other players as white phantoms, providing a chance to inspect their actions.
- A recently shared clip showcased a perfectly synchronized attack between a player and a random white phantom, resulting in a comical coincidence.
- Players speculate about the nature of white phantoms, with some believing they may be real-time players and others suggesting they could be recordings from the past.
An Elden Ring player captured a moment where they launched an attack on an enemy at the exact same moment as a phantom. The shared Elden Ring clip showcased a perfect synchronization between the phantom and the player, amusing fellow gamers.
Elden Ring, the highly acclaimed action RPG created by Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin, follows in the footsteps of previous FromSoftware games by incorporating the presence of other players in the role of phantoms. Players can summon spirits in Elden Ring, as well as other individuals who assume the role of phantoms to aid them in their adventures. Players can also occasionally encounter the phantoms of others for a brief moment, allowing them to observe their actions. These white phantoms can be found anywhere on the map as long as they are in the same location as the player and have their online feature activated. The recent encounter resulted in a humorous and improbable coincidence.
The clip was shared by a Reddit user named Longjumping-Bad-8832 and captured a perfectly synchronized attack between them and a random white phantom they happened to come across. As the player prepared to attack, a phantom, unbeknownst to them, chose the exact same moment to launch an attack. The result was nothing short of comical, as Elden Ring features a variety of weapons with different attacks and ashes of war. However, these two uncommunicative players managed to execute the same assault at the same time, creating the illusion of cooperative gameplay.
FromSoftware’s open-world title continues to surprise its fans, with some making new discoveries even after many hours of playing Elden Ring. The post sparked a discussion among players about the true nature of the white phantoms, with some speculating that they might not be real-time players but rather recordings from a recent past. Some players even argued that they saw themselves as ghosts while playing. Nevertheless, they ultimately agreed that these ghosts belong to such a recent past that they can be considered “real-time.”
After more than a year and a half, Elden Ring remains a popular game, even in the face of recently released AAA titles. There have been recent rumors about the release date of Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree, the highly anticipated DLC of the game. Fans eagerly await more news about the expansion, anticipating new challenges in The Lands Between and potentially new locations, all infused with the unmistakable style of FromSoftware titles.
Elden Ring is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
