Elden Ring: PS5 vs Xbox Series X! Where does it run best?

Elden Ring

For several hours the Elden Ring network test has come to an end. Some users have managed to try one of the most anticipated titles of 2022, arriving on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbobx Series X | S on February 25th. The new game from From Software with the collaboration of George R.R. Martin is really impressive, the lucky ones who tested it in these three days were able to see how the created world is full of enemies, bosses, weapons, spells and much more. Certainly the frame rate and some reused assets from Dark Souls 3 made some turn up their noses, but in any case the work is fun and satisfying with really important additions to the gameplay such as repost or the refinement of weapon art, already seen in the third chapter of Dark Souls.

The Elden Ring trial was available on several platforms, but which one performed better? Before going to see the winner, it is necessary to underline how the game is under development and it is more than plausible that in recent months the team is undergoing to file all the problems encountered by users all over the world.

The well-known YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits has decided to post a video comparison between the various versions of this generation revealing that PS5, at the moment, is the next gen console that has performed better with Elden Ring. The frame rate is definitely more stable than Xbox Series X, the shadows appear more defined and the uploads are faster.

Just this weekend, however, Digital Foundry was able to analyze the old gen versions, being amazed that PS4 Pro had a better frame rate than PS5. This is almost certainly an optimization problem, which will obviously be fixed just before the release. Have you tried Elden Ring? What do you think?

Is Elden Ring on PS4?

Is Elden Ring on PS4? The question has been a little difficult to answer what with the variety of consoles and exclusives currently available, not to mention a slightly unclear marketing campaign. From Software's team-up with Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin has been highly anticipated for a while, and early footage shows a variety of colourful carnage and swordplay against characteristically ominous monsters. But who exactly will get to torment themselves? We'll answer the questions below: Is Elden Ring on PS4, will it be on PS4 later on, and which consoles overall will be the lucky ones?

Yes, don't worry - despite looking pretty robustly 'next-gen', Elden Ring will be on PS4 with a simultaneous release on both generations of console. It's unclear at this point if this will mean any significant differences between the two versions beyond the expected graphics refinement, haptic trigger elements and general enhancements that can usually be expected in PS5 versions of games. However, we'll be sure to update this page if more details emerge on specific and meaningful distinctions between the PS5 and PS4 copies of Elden Ring. 


It should also be mentioned that those who buy the game on PS4 will be able to download free PS5 upgrades, so replacing your console in the future (tricky as that may be with limited stock), means you'll get an enhanced version of the game to work from.

Aside from the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, we have it confirmed at time of writing that Elden Ring will be playable on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and on PC too. There's also Collector's Editions available for all these platforms as well, and the very robust Premium Collector's Edition, which comes with a giant wearable helmet from the game itself. Whatever your option, it seems like the only console that won't be getting Elden Ring is the Nintendo Switch, which… well, seems fair, considering how monstrously demanding the game looks like it's going to be on console hardware.
