Elden Ring was a complete success for Bandai Namco and FromSoftware. The game had the collaboration of the infamous Game of Thrones creator, George R. R. Martin. This title sold more than 13 million units, becoming one of the biggest launches in FromSoftware history and it continues to be a huge talking point. Fans are so passionate about this game that they keep making content almost two years after the launch.


With the imminent release of the expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, fans are setting themselves some arduous and incredible tasks. This particular Reddit user is no exception.

A new Elden Ring Challenge awaits

One Reddit user is waiting for the DLC launch with a little twist; he is not just sitting around; he made a challenge for himself every day until the content is available. FromSoftware announced Shadow of the Erdtree in February 2023, but we have no release date yet. This challenge consists of defeating Godfrey without getting hit day after day.


This user, called g0n1s4, publishes in the official FromSoftware subreddit with the mission of defeating Godfrey without getting hit every day until the DLC gets released. There are more details; for example, he has to use different weapons every day. Several users are commenting on this skilled player, praising his abilities.

The player begins his quest on January 6 until Shadow of the Erdtree is released. He is documenting this challenge by uploading every new battle with Godfrey, showing his build and the newly selected weapon. G0n1s4 is also publishing in the Elden Ring official subreddit for all the community to see this challenge.

Elden Ring and its creative community

To accomplish this challenge, the Reddit user has to use a mod so he can fight several times every boss that he wants. So for the moment, this battle will not end because we have no release date for the Elden Ring DLC. Perhaps From Software can help complete this challenge by confirming the date.


At the time of writing this article, user g0n1s4 has reached 24 days straight of not being hit, even when he is using different weapons every time. We have to wait to see if this player keeps his word until the DLC arrives. The community is so committed to the game that they have made an incredible amount of mods.

The mods are something very common in the Elden Ring community, as much as in Skyrim. For example, we have The Convergence Mod, which adds new areas, and it looks incredible for the players who want more lore from this popular game.

Elden Ring launched on February 25, 2022, and that year became GOTY. The game is available on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC.
