If you’ve played Elder Ring and are a fan of the wildly popular GeoGuessr game genre – in which you’re dropped into Google Street View and tasked with pinpointing your location – then you might want to thank Redditor u/TheEdenChild. They recently announced that they are a Elder Ring-based take on GeoGuessr which has over 8,000 locations for you to guess from, and hoo boy, it’s a lot of fun.
The new game, which is free to play in your browser, lets you jump into single or multiplayer games across the entire map or more specific locations like Altus Plateau, Caelid, and Limgrave. At first I thought it was pretty straightforward since my first two guesses were relatively close to their actual locations on the map. However, then I was dropped on a misty ridge and had no idea where the hell this was in the game, and I ended up dropping my pin miles from its correct location. Cue me stubbornly trying to beat my high score for the next half hour, quickly restarting the game after each go in an attempt to beat myself.
This in particular GeoGuessr dupe (there are several others available at LostGamer.ioincluding the ones before Skyrim, Fortniteand Genshin effect) was created by “capturing hundreds of thousands of raw images before stitching them together to create the 360-degree panoramas,” according to the Redditor, who worked on the project with another person. “We also made a semi-decent satellite map of the world,” they said, “for more accurate guessing (if you zoom in enough you can see animals). We also have custom settings, leaderboards and multiplayer support, with plans to add more features in the future!”
Personally, apart from trying to prove that I do indeed have a good sense of direction, I really enjoyed dropping into a spot and seeing what weird creatures were frozen there. The dragon on the bridge overlooking Caelid was the best yet.
