Naturally, Someone Beat Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree With A Dance Mat

Toe-tally awesome.


One Twitch streamer has put their best foot forward and finished Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree with a dance mat. And you thought beating the expansion with a controller was hard.

Spotted by Eurogamer, streamer MissMikka posted their impressive triumph over the expansion's final boss, Radahn, on X (formerly known as Twitter). MissMikka added that the encounter took seven hours of dancing–"my feet hurt"--and 52 tries. For all of Shadow of the Erdtree, MissMikka stated they spent seven days playing through the DLC with 325 deaths. "I hope [From Software president Hidetaka] Miyazaki is proud of me," MissMikka wrote.

Last month, Miyazaki said, "I absolutely suck at video games," so one could argue he'd be impressed by a player beating Shadow of the Erdtree with their feet. Meanwhile, another Twitch streamer is defeating Elden Ring's DLC bosses without lifting a finger by utilizing different head- and eye-tracking devices.

The Shadow of the Erdtree expansion led to Elden Ring climbing the most-played game charts for the last week of June. In fact, it was the No. 1 most-played game on Steam for that time period.

Last week, From Software released an Elden Ring patch that nerfed multiple weapons, such as Bloodfiend's Arm and Lightning Perfume Bottle. GameSpot also has a handy Shadow of the Erdtree guide to help people struggling with the difficult DLC.
