All Elden Ring Night Time Bosses Locations

645

From Software games are renowned for their boss encounters and for many players, this is one of the most integral parts of coming back and staying loyal to their creations. Each one of their creations has memorable bosses that intrigue the best of the “Git Gud” community or are the reasons for many broken controllers out of sheer rage.

All From Software games are chock-full of optional bosses that players are eager to locate and kill. This is much more true in Elden Ring as the world is open and huge and even the day and night cycle hides some great monstrosities. Here we will list down all the bosses that only come out at night in Elden Ring.

Why Are There Night Bosses In Elden Ring?

The exploration in Elden Ring feels a lot more different than many mainstream AAA games, the game actively pulls entire chunks of its content behind a large draped curtain. Only subtly hint at the player that the curtain may actually be hiding something. In doing so, Elden Ring presents an open world that doesn’t have to rely on the conveniences of a mini-map or a journal to make itself worth exploring.

Through all of this, the game sparks a curious sense of adventure and discovery within the player, causing them to check every corner of every crevice in the open world while occasionally rewarding the player with big discoveries like entirely new regions or a new mini-dungeon and sometimes even entirely new levels that are just as detailed if not more so than a proper level in any other From Software game.

This keeps the player consistently engaged and interested to see more of this carefully and immaculately crafted open world.

How the Night Bosses Factor into Exploration:

But this might make you wonder, how do the Night bosses alter the experience of exploration. Well, before this I think a lot of players would have likely ignored the option to rest at a Grace to pass time. This mechanic not only encourages players to use that system but also to go through previously explored areas all over again and not only discover new bosses at different times but also making entirely new discoveries that they may have previously missed.

With the addition of stuff like this and the unguided nature of Elden Ring’s open world, the game feels very unique and special. Compared with some of the other already out open-world games right now, Elden Ring, just like Breath of The Wild before it, dared to do something new and special. The sheer effort that has been put into this world can hardly be understated, easily missed zones, levels, bosses, and mini-bosses.

All Night Time Boss Locations in Elden Ring

If you are a player like me then your OCD needs you to kill every boss that is hiding in the nooks and crannies of the insanely huge world of Elden Ring. It’s rather easy to locate bosses while you are discovering each facet of the map but some are prone to be missable, especially these pesky nighttime only bosses.

Many a time, it happened to me, we end up discovering an open world section in the daytime, only to read later on somewhere that a boss appears there at night. So out of pure frustration, we decided to create a list of these hiding-in-the-shadows freak bosses and where you can find them.
