The time seems long for those who have ticked the box of February 25, 2022 on their diary. But From Software and Bandai Namco intend to maintain the hype around Elden Ring at their own pace.
Every appearance ofElden Ringis the assurance of turning heads. Especially those of Dark Souls worshipers. Bandai Namco and From Software begin to step on the accelerator. First by letting filter, for seasoned eyes, the place it will occupy on the hard drive of an Xbox console – thank you to the Microsoft Store.
You now know: it will need to keep more than 50 GB of space. Which represents a hell of a lot more gigas compared to previous titles from Hidetaka Miyazaki’s studio. Open world requires? Probably. But that was for the part a little hidden. Other technical details have appeared on the Faq One of them, for example, confirms the existence of the Graphics and Performance display modes on PS5 and Xbox Series | S, unveiled by Gamestop a few days ago.
On PC, the resolution will go up to 4K and with a ceiling of 60 fps with support for Ray Tracing. Do our beloved Next-Gen consoles also benefit from this technology? Absolutely, but after applying a patch. Otherwise, it will be the same resolution and frame rate as on PC – but 60 fps only in Performance mode. The S Series will remain limited to 2560x1440p / 30 fps. The generation before, which continues to represent the majority will see the PS4 launch Elden Ring at 1920x1080p / 30 fps, the PS4 Pro at 3200x1800p / 30 fps Checkerboard, the Xbox One at 1600x900p / 30 fps and the Xbox One X at 4K / 30fps. Last particularities underlined: the backups. We can make the journey from the PS4 to the PS5, but not in reverse, while your progress on an Xbox console will be 100% compatible between machines.

This, reserved for consolers only, will require 7 GB of hard disk. And you will have to choose between five classes, presented quickly on social networks.
In seven days, these five brave Tarnishes will cross the Sea of Fog.
So here are the Warrior, the Enchanted Knight (me too), the Prophet, the Champion and the Bloodthirsty Wolf confirmed. Charming names which will be declined in the masculine as in the feminine. And will serve as a starting point for an adventure in Entre-Terre that we are promised very free. It’s a safe bet that others will be added to the roster, just to diversify the styles even more.
