The Dark Souls franchise is known for its brutal and unforgiving nature, yet players are still finding more and more ways to make it even more challenging for the glory of it all. With the Dark Souls enemy randomizer mod, the chaotic nature of the game becomes infinitely more so by taking the title's element of surprise and cranking it through the roof!

The mod itself is still a work in progress from the creator Benzoin-Gum over on Nexus Mods. Presently, only a few of the game's levels can be tweaked using this particular game adjustment, but the different versions allow PC players to tailor the experience a bit more. According to the mod's creator:

"This is a Cheat Table that randomizes the enemy spawns. It requires modified game files so be sure to read the readme. The table comes in three versions: the regular version, a version that can spawn bosses as enemies and a "lore friendly" version that only uses enemies relevant to the area being randomized. Nothing here should trigger a ban but as is the case with any sort of mod or hack I can't guarantee anything."

With Dark Souls being remastered and coming soon, even to the Nintendo Switch, the unforgiving series is once again on everyone's mind. Before diving into it once more on the hybrid console by the Big N, why not shake things up a bit before the official launch of the updated game?

For more about Dark Souls:

Dark Souls is an action role-playing game from the developers who brought you Demon's Souls, FromSoftware. Dark Souls will have many familiar features: A dark fantasy universe, tense dungeon crawling, fearsome enemy encounters and unique online interactions. Dark Souls is a spiritual successor to Demon's, not a sequel. Prepare for a new, despair-inducing world, with a vast, fully-explorable horizon and vertically-oriented landforms. Prepare for a new, mysterious story, centered around the the world of Lodran, but most of all, prepare to die. You will face countless murderous traps, countless darkly grotesque mobs and several gargantuan, supremely powerful demons and dragons bosses. You must learn from death to persist through this unforgiving world. And you aren't alone. Dark Souls allows the spirits of other players to show up in your world, so you can learn from their deaths and they can learn from yours. You can also summon players into your world to co-op adventure, or invade other's worlds to PVP battle. New to Dark Souls are Bonfires, which serve as check points as you fight your way through this epic adventure. While rested at Bonfires, your health and magic replenish but at a cost, all mobs respawn. Beware: There is no place in Dark Souls that is truly safe. With days of game play and an even more punishing difficulty level, Dark Souls will be the most deeply challenging game you play this year. Can you live through a million deaths and earn your legacy?
