Elden Ring system requirements

The Elden Ring system requirements are a Soulsborne boss unto themselves, demanding a whopping 12GB or more to grant passage into The Lands Between

The latest Soulsborne game is finally here, but before you dive into the mind of director Hidetaka Miyazaki once again, you need to know if your rig can handle the Elden Ring system requirements. The bad news is that it might tax lower-end or aging systems by asking for 12GB of RAM. The good news is that it isn’t quite as demanding on graphics cards as you might expect.

Elden Ring supports a maximum resolution of native 4K, HDR, and frame rates of up to 60fps. Unfortunately, it appears that FromSoftware has implemented a frame rate cap, as it did previously with its previous game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. As usual, this is circumvented through mods, and they’re not difficult to install.

There are a handful of features missing from the game, such as Nvidia DLSS, AMD FSR, and ray tracing. The latter is promised for a future update, although there’s no telling just how long you’ll have to wait for it to appear and if it’s not accompanied by some form of upscaler to boost fps, it might make your gaming PC sweat a bit.
