This include the Graphics Mode (supporting up to 4K graphics), and Performance Modes (supporting 60fps).  In addition, free upgrades from PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were revealed.


Using the power of the new generation of consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S will allow players to personalize their experience by choosing between GRAPHIC MODE to enhance the game’s visuals (up to 4K) or PERFORMANCE MODE for a higher frame rate (up to 60FPS).

A free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version will be available for players who purchase ELDEN RING on PlayStation 4, and SmartDelivery will be supported for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.”


The rundown also shows that crossplay is available only between PlayStation or Xbox consoles. This in turn means PC players will not be playing with either console players.
