Elden Ring is FromSoftware's first foray into making a true open-world game. Yes, the masters of creating immersive games with mature atmosphere, fascinating lore, and satisfying combat have now brought their talents to one of the most popular styles of RPG. We couldn't be more excited to see that!

But with 'elden' power comes 'elden' responsibility—like the responsibility to actually have a computer that can run the game. That's what this big guide is all about! Whether your gaming PC is sitting under your desk, sitting under your living room TV, or is still just a figment of your imagination, this guide can help you move toward the best possible graphics and frame rates in FromSoft's game. We'll tell you everything you need to know to build and/or configure a PC for an amazing Elden Ring experience at your preferred resolution.

In Section 1, we discuss the official minimum and recommended specifications for Elden Ring, and what kind of performance each set of specs could provide.

In Section 2, we provide four balanced example builds geared toward providing enough power to run Elden Ring at 60 FPS with different resolutions (1080p, 1440p, and 4K).

Finally, in Section 3, we have put together an Elden Ring graphics settings guide that will tell you what each graphics option does, and how much each of them impacts the FPS of the game.
