The best PC settings for Elden Ring

Boss of the Elden Ring DLC: Shadow of the Erdtree

Shadow of the Erdtree, DLC for Elden Ring, is coming June 21, so get ready.

We’ll break down the best PC settings for Elden Ring for gamers with entry-level hardware, but they’ll work for any setup if you’re looking for the smoothest experience possible.

The game is locked at 60 frames per second and while this isn’t an ideal FPS for most PC gamers, it means we can still maintain high visual quality while hitting the maximum framerate.

  • Screen Mode : Full screen
  • Resolution : The resolution of your monitor, for example 1920×1080
  • Automatic detection of the best rendering settings : Enabled
  • Quality Settings : Custom
  • Texture quality : Average
  • Antialiasing quality : Bass
  • SSAO : AVERAGE
  • Depth of field : Disabled
  • Motion blur : Disabled
  • Shadow quality : Bass
  • Lighting quality : Average
  • Effect quality : Average
  • Volumetric quality : Average
  • Reflection quality : Average
  • Water surface quality : Average
  • Shader quality : Average
  • Overall brightness : Average
  • Grass quality : Average

Of course, these settings all depend on how powerful your setup is and what resolution you’re trying to play at. For example, 1080p will be much less demanding than 4K. But these settings provide a great starting point, which you can then adjust accordingly.

However, We strongly recommend disabling Depth of Field and Motion Blur settings for all gamesbecause they add unnecessary visual effects without affecting performance.

Minimum and recommended PC requirements for Elden Ring

According to Steam, the minimum and recommended PC specifications for playing Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree are as follows:

It looks like a low-end configuration won’t do the trick for FromSoftware’s best-selling game, as you’ll need at least 12GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5 8400, and an Nvidia Geforce 1060 with 3 GB of VRAM for gaming. High-end PC gamers reported FPS drops at launch, but performance has improved with updates rolled out since release.

  • Frame rate : Up to 60 FPS

Does Elden Ring have NVIDIA DLSS?

Unfortunately, Elden Ring does not support DLSS. DLSS is a technology that allows gamers with RTX GPUs to set their game to a lower resolution, increasing performance but giving the appearance of a higher resolution.

huutaii’s Temporal Super Sampling mod could help you get the benefits of DLSS in Elden Ring. However, note that the mod is unofficial and works on limited versions of the game. Additionally, you cannot play online on official servers using it.
