Elden Ringthe new video game from FromSoftware that has become one of the best open worlds in history, receives markers so that players can track and make a track quests and NPCs thanks to a curious application designed for iOS (via VGC). Related to this same topic, earlier this week some developers from Guerrilla Games and Ubisoft criticized the title’s interface, as well as its absence of markers and the design of its main missions.
An app for taking notes on NPCs, quests, and locations
Shattered Ring, the app in question, is described as the “quest tracker you didn’t know you needed to Elden Ring“As we have highlighted at the beginning, for the moment the application is only available for devices with the iOS operating system and its function is to allow greater control of the status of important missions, locations and characters in the video game. For example, you can manually enter the names and location of the NPCs as you meet them during the adventure. Although it is specified that its use is directed to Elden Ringalso works with other open world RPGs that lack such guides.
The application has arisen as a result of a debate that has been resounding in recent days after the launch of the new Hidetaka Miyazaki, and that is that while there are players who praise the deliberate decision not to include markers of missions for greater immersionthere are others who would prefer to have the possibility of activating some type of marker or guide to have a clearer tracking of your progress during the adventure. If you belong to this last group, we are sure that this application will be of great help to you.
Dachary Carey, its creator, explained to VGC that “I am not an iOS developer by profession”, but that “I wanted to enjoy this game so much that I created my first application to solve what I think is a problem. big accessibility barrier for a lot of gamers who are more casuallike me”.
Other demanded options included through mods
In addition to the quest markers, there are other players who have been demanding for the last few days the inclusion of a Photo Mode and the ability to pause the game. Although FromSoftware is not expected to add both options in the future, the software community modders has created a Photo Mode full of options and recently discovered a way to pause the title without installing mods on PC and consoles.
