Fans of FromSoftware eagerly await the release of Elden Ring, but on PC many fans of the team's work passionately develop older works of the Japanese team. This requires a lot of persistence, because these games were not created with mods in mind. Despite this, there is no shortage of interesting projects of this type. A new version of one of the most popular mods has just been released, namely SOTFS Ascended Mod RPG for Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. The update is numbered 12.5 and brings, among other things, bug fixes and improved boss battles.
The series is famous for its high difficulty level, but people who have been playing these games for years need bigger challenges. This is what the SOTFS Ascended Mod RPG provides, but this is only a part of the changes offered by this project. The mod changes the campaign to provide a fresh experience. New enemies have been added, and every battle in all locations has been reworked - enemies are now in different locations, configurations and types.
The mod also significantly reinforces the importance of RPG elements. Proper use of armor and the item system is now absolutely crucial, and the player must carefully progress their character. We can forget about completing the game with the character in underwear, which is feasible in the basic version of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin.
SOTFS Ascended Mod RPG offers enough changes that even veterans can count on a fresh experience. An additional advantage is that the mod works not only in single player mode, but also in co-op.
It's worth mentioning at the end that the author of the project - VanBuinen - is simultaneously working on similar projects for Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, Dark Souls: Remastered and Dark Souls III.
