Wondering what kind of performance you’ll get out of Elden Ring? Bandai Namco has shed some light on the matter.
Elden Ring is an open-world action RPG set to arrive on PC, PlayStation and Xbox this February. It’s been developed by From Software, developers of the Dark Souls series and takes place in a world created by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin. And, as you might expect, a lot of people, ourselves included, are looking forward to it.
We got an extended 20 minute look at the game last week but now we know how it’ll perform, FPS and resolution-wise. According to Bandai Namco console platforms will deliver the following.
|Maximum resolution||Up to 1920x1080P||Up to 3200x1800P1||Up to 3840x2160P|
|Framerate||Up to 30 FPS||Up to 30 FPS||Up to 60 FPS2|
|Raytracing (via patch)||–||–||Supported|
|Maximum resolution||Up to 1600x900P||Up to 3840x2160P||Up to 2560x1440P||Up to 3840x2160P|
|Framerate||Up to 30 FPS||Up to 30 FPS||Up to 60 FPS2||Up to 60 FPS2|
|HDR||X1 not supported||Supported|
|Raytracing (via patch)||–||–||–||Supported|
In order to get 60FPS out of your console you’ll have to choose performance mode, which, according to Bandai Namco, “adjusts screen resolution and load balancer to approach 60 FPS”. On PS5, Xbox Series X and PC raytracing will be supported via a patch but there’s no mention of when this patch will arrive, whether it’ll be available on the day of release or much later.
- Maximum resolution*: Up to 3840x2160P
- Framerate: Up to 60 FPS
- HDR: Supported
- Raytracing (via patch): Supported
We don’t yet know what the PC requirements are; you’ll only get that kind of performance if your PC is meaty enough and, as of right now, Elden Ring’s Steam page lists only TBD, To Be Determined. We’ve seen a set of specs floating around but there’s nothing to confirm those have come from Bandai Namco.
Still, there’s a few months left till Elden Ring’s February 25th release date, so Namco have plenty of time to come forward with that information and for George R.R. Martin to announce The Winds of Winter’s release date, not that we’re desperate or anything.
