Elden Ring's marketing is in full swing with only a few months between players and FromSoftware's next epic title. Elden Ring's official gameplay preview last Thursday presented fifteen minutes of what players can expect from its open-world systems, such as the introduction of a map with custom markers and guidance beacons, and general traversal throughout the Lands Between.
But shoulder-to-shoulder with its gameplay reveal was also the official announcement of its variously priced editions, such as Elden Ring's Collector's Editions, whether Premium or ordinary. FromSoftware fans now have a great deal to look forward to when Elden Ring launches this February. Recently, Bandai Namco has also shared Elden Ring's available game specs so that players can assess which platform would be most optimal for them to play the game on.
Bandai Namco Entertainment has recently released spec sheets for Elden Ring's performance and compatibility on all available platforms. Firstly, Elden Ring on PC will support a maximum resolution of up to 3840x2160p and a framerate of up to 60 FPS, as well as support for HDR and ray tracing, with the latter supported after a requisite patch. These specs appear fairly standard for modern AAA games and will likely be unsurprising to players whose native gaming platform is a high-end PC.
Elden Ring's specs on PlayStation are more variable due to the game's availability across PS4, PS4 Pro, and PS5 simultaneously. On a base PS4, for example, the maximum resolution will allow up to 1920x1080p, while the PS4 Pro will achieve a checkerboard resolution of up to 3200x1800p and the PS5 will achieve up to 3840x2160p. The PS5 is also the only PlayStation console generation that supports up to 60 FPS as a result of Elden Ring's framerate-centric Performance mode.
Maximum resolutions are diversely variable between Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X, with an Xbox One achieving up to 1600x900p and an Xbox Series X achieving up to 3840x2160p. Similarly to PS5, only the latest generation consoles for Xbox, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X, will be compatible for up to 60 FPS with Performance mode activated. But unlike PlayStation, Elden Ring's specs on Xbox allow for complete, back-and-forth "cross-generation compatibility."
Of course, players will need to ensure that they have the prerequisite platforms and compatible TVs or displays in order to generate these spec results. Regardless, Elden Ring's impressive visuals will surely astound on any platform or console, but it is interesting to see the optimal specifications that players may be able to achieve.
Elden Ring releases February 25 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
