Elden Ring will soon be with us, but will your PC be able to run FromSoftware’s latest punishing RPG? Here’s the recommended system requirements for running Elden Ring on PC.

While FromSoftware’s next adventure looks impressive, PC owners will be relieved to learn that Elden Ring’s system requirements on PC aren’t as taxing as they could have been. The game will release on February 25, 2022, on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S, but it will also release on PS4 and Xbox one. This means that as the title is cross-generational, the PC version is likely to run on more rigs than a game considered completely ‘next-gen.’

In fact, some PS5 owners are worried that Elden Ring won’t look as good as the PS5 remake of Demon’s Souls, to which Elden Ring is a spiritual successor. Luckily, this isn’t something PC players of Elden Ring need to concern themselves with. Here’s the minimum and recommended system requirements to run Elden Ring on PC.
