Elden Ring is a stunningly looking game that hooked the players from the moment of her release. The use of graphics of a new generation fascinates, but from time to time still arise problems with frames. That’s what you can do to soften the drop in frames.

PS5 performance improvements

If you have not yet updated your game Elden Ring to the latest version of the correction, do it before continuing. Patches are intended to improve the aspects of the gameplay, so you may find that the FromSoftware update will help you.

If this does not quite help, you might think about going to the version of the game for PS4. We know that it sounds a little unusual, actively play a copy of the last generation on PS5. However, it is more focused on FPS, which means that you get more smooth experience.

If you decide to do this, the maximum resolution will be a smaller number of pixels 1800p , and the density of grass will suffer. On the other hand, you will find that you get more permanent 60 frames per second, which is necessary for many players.
