Well, Dark Souls is Halo now
Posted by Raphael Leynes February 01, 2021

Well, it has happened. 

 

Dark Souls is just Halo now. A modder by the name of InfernoPlus has successfully turned FromSoftware’s unforgiving third-person action game into a 6v6 team deathmatch style multiplayer featuring classic Halo maps complete with power-ups!

 

 

What began as an experiment to import the classic Halo map Blood Gulch into Dark Souls turned into an expansive project to basically expand the core multiplayer of the game entirely. 

 

In InfernoPlus’s painstaking efforts they successfully integrated 6v6 PvP Multiplayer, a dedicated matchmaking system, Power-ups, and even a Capture-The-Flag modeTO DARK SOULS.

Well, Capture-the-Lizard to be exact

 

InfernoPlus also introduced a ton of mechanical reworks and balance changes to the core gameplay of Dark Souls itself to make the multiplayer as fun as possible. They tackled the issue of infinite backstabbing, OP Guard Breaking, and a whole host of other broken mechanics that the original had that just had no place in the New Dark Souls InfernoPlus was building. 

 

All this on top of importing just FOUR more Halo maps into the game, no biggie.

 

 

Rest assured that just like anything associated with Dark Souls, this was not in any way an easy task. InfernoPlus spent an ungodly amount of time working on it, conferring with other notable modders such as Dropoff, (Dark Souls X Half-life Crossfire mod and Dark Souls x Liberty City Mod), translating Japanese code, and learning a whole new programming language, C#. 

 

And all this was achieved for the sheer love of the game. InfernoPlus isn’t charging a single cent for players to try their mod out for free. Curious souls can just download the mod here: Dark Souls: Remastest Release | InfernoPlus on Patreon. We should reiterate though that modding Dark Souls does have its risks which could result in getting your account banned so take all the necessary precautions.

 


InfernoPlus details their entire process in creating this monumental achievement in the video below. They even throw in a Machinima Style recreation of the classic Red versus Blue opening scene but with Dark Souls characters. Honestly, where do they find the time?

 

 

Now all that’s left is to see if the mod is compatible with the Dark Souls with Guns Mod for last year, then we’ll really finish the fight.
