Of course, Elden Ring is already played by Twitch Chat
Elden Ring is already being played by a Twitch chat, as gamers continue to search for the wackiest ways to play the latest developer FromSoftware.
Twitch streamer Bruce Greene put his cat to work when he walked away from his computer in a stream to support charities helping Ukrainian civilians and refugees.
Twitch chat took over its Elden Ring gameplay as Greene slept (in a tent with a bonfire) spamming chat-based commands to move forward, backward, roll, use items, and more in a trend that rose to prominence in 2014 with Twitch Play Pokémon.
I found a way to play Elden Ring FOREVER
– I play during the day
– Twitch Chat plays while I sleep and work out
– I sleep in a tent with a bonfire

The results were understandably chaotic and resulted in death after death, but the cat was finally able to move around with some consistency. However, don’t expect the triumphs of a Twitch play Pokémon with this – with a bigger world, more controls, and more difficulty, just getting to new areas was the real win here.
That’s not the only odd way players are choosing to experience Elden Ring, as one player defeated a boss using the Nintendo Switch Ring Fit Controller.
Elden Ring continues to take the gaming sphere by storm after becoming one of the highest-reviewed games in modern history, and has even expanded outside of games (in an equally weird way) with Trolli making an Elden Ring candy.
In our 10/10 review, IGN said, “Elden Ring is a massive iteration of what FromSoftware started with the Souls series, bringing its relentless combat to an incredible open world that gives us the freedom to choose our own path. “
