Elden Ring on PC in 4K, 60fps and With Ray Tracing; First Character Classes Revealed

FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have shared the technical details of Elden Ring. The title will enable us to play at up to 60 fps, support resolutions up to 4K, as well as ray tracing. We also got to know the five character classes that will be available to try out in the upcoming online mode tests.

  • on PC Elden Ring is expected to run at up to 60 fps, support resolutions up to 4K, ray tracing and HDR;
  • On next-gen consoles, the game will run in two modes: quality and performance;
  • FromSoftware has released the omages of the five character classes that will be available to try out in the upcoming network mode tests.

We've learned some technical details about Elden Ring, the spiritual heir to the Souls series. The PC version looks the best, at least on paper. The title is to run at a maximum of 60 fps, support resolutions up to 4K, HDR and ray tracing. We don't know anything about the latter yet, except that it will be added in a patch: either in the so-called 1.0 or in one of the post-release updates. The 60fps limit can be a bit of an annoyance, but rest assured that a mod will be released soon to unlock the frame rate and let you enjoy higher values.

On the next-gen consoles - PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S - there will be two modes: performance and quality. The first will enable us to play at 60fps, but with a lower resolution than 4K, while the second will allow it at the cost of reduced fps. PS4 and XONE owners will have to settle for 30 fps and 1080p resolution.

We remind you that this weekend, namely from November 12 to 15, there will be tests of the network mode of Elden Ring. Three days ago, the official Twitter account of the game posted an entry containing images presenting the five characters "with which we will cross the Sea of Mist. They will be: warrior, enchanted knight, prophet, champion and bloody wolf (see screenshots below). We can guess that these are a kind of character classes, similar to those that appeared in Souls or Bloodborne - by choosing one of them, we'll probably decide on our starting equipment, weapons and statistics, but later probably develop the character in any direction. The final version of the game will almost certainly feature more of them.



Elden Ring will debut on February 25, 2022 for PC, PS4, PS5, XONE and XSX|S. Last Thursday, FromSoftware released a few minutes of gameplay footage. If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check it out here.
