1. Disable Online Play
Close the game and in the main menu go to the Systems option. Then go to the 4th Option you should see Launch Settings like the screenshot below. Then set the Launch Settings to Play Offline.
2. Reduce Elden Ring Settings
Go to the right most option which will show you Graphics option. Set Quality to low, then go to advanced settings and set Antialiasing as well to Low (This does not get automatically set to Low).
Back to the graphics tab lower the resolution as well. As an example check the screenshot below:
3. NVIDIA Control Panel Settings
Open the Nvidia Control Panel or equivalent AMD control panel. This should look something like the screenshot below.
Go to the Manage 3D Settings tab. Now do the following:
- Set the Preferred Graphics Processor to always use your Nvidia processor
- Go through the list and disable all options. Except Shader cache if you have SSD and space.
You could also update your driver once Nvidia has released Elden Ring related updates. May be, even an additional step to disconnect any additional displays that you might have.
4. View Minimum Settings
If the above has not worked be sure to crosscheck the minimum requirements at https://store.steampowered.com/app/1245620/ELDEN_RING/
. Although given this game came out on PS4 the requirements shouldn’t be that high.
The above worked for me so I hope it works for you as well!
