Elden Ring Steam servers go down for maintenance tonight

PSA: Elden Ring servers are going down for a bit of maintenance later

Elden Ring's Godric

From Software’s latest game is out, and it’s fantastic – just check out our Elden Ring review for a whole lot more words on why. But despite that excellence, it’s got a range of technical issues, particularly on PC. The devs are continuing to work on performance problems, but tonight we’re getting a bit of maintenance to “help improve some multiplayer functions”.

Elden Ring servers go down for one hour of maintenance across all platforms tonight. On PC, that window is February 28 at 8pm PST / 11pm EST, or March 1 at 4am GMT. (For our console friends, Xbox maintenance takes place one hour earlier at 7pm PST / 10pm EST / 3am GMT, and PlayStation maintenance takes place two hours earlier at 6pm PST / 9pm EST / 2am GMT.)

There’s no word on exactly what issues this maintenance will address, and Elden Ring’s multiplayer problems have been inconsistent across platforms. On PlayStation, everything usually works except for the bloodstains that show how other players died. PC and Xbox have both had intermittent issues with many features.

Regardless, here’s hoping that this maintenance can smooth out the last of the rough edges on the multiplayer side.

If you’re looking for something to do while those servers are down, we’ve got a pile of guides for you to peruse. Why not dig into the Elden Ring Golden Seed locations or our Elden Ring weapon arts guide? No one said you had to get good all on your own. (Well, if they did they’re a jerk.)
