Elden Ring It came to become one of the best games of 2022 and that we are only in the third month. With very good critical ratings and more accessible gameplay, many players are encouraged to give it a try. However, there is something that many ask for and this time it is not an option to lower the difficulty.
One of the missing options Elden Ring, according to the players, is to pause it. Although there is no explanation, it is likely that this ‘omission’ is due to the fact that it is, in a way, an online game where you can meet other users. Since being able to stop for a breather is a necessity, mods were created to make it possible. Now it turns out that maybe the modders worked for nothing.
Elden Ring does have a pause button
The creation of a mod to be able to pause Elden Ring It was quite an event in social networks. Many showed their happiness with this addition. However, it seems that the new title of FromSoftware yes it can be paused. Although the process is quite different from what we are used to, where it was only enough to press ‘start’.
A Twitter user by the name of Iron Pineapple shared the discovery in a video. Here it shows that to pause you must first open your inventory and then press the button that explains the menus. This makes everything Elden Ring stop, even if you have an angry mob chasing you.
Normally pressing the start button only opens the options to see your inventory and equipment, but the game continues to run. If an enemy already has you in their sights, it doesn’t matter if you open those menus, they can attack you anyway. The discovery of Iron Pineapple could finally allow us a moment to take a call, go to the bathroom or answer messages in a session of Elden Ring.
depending on the medium VGC, this pause could actually be a programming error. Perhaps someone forgot that the game should continue while the menu explanation was opening, but we admit that the mistake is appreciated. That said, they will likely remove this option with a future patch from Elden Ring. It is better to take advantage of it while we have a chance.
