Elden Ring is FromSoftware’s latest open-world action RPG, that puts players in the Land Betweens. It is one of the best-reviewed games of all time and has had gaming critics raving about its incredible world.
BeforeCo PC players can even look through all the different starting classes that Elden Ring has to offer, they’re going to want to make sure they can run it well on their PC. When the minimum PC requirements were released it left many players worried about how demanding they were.
Thankfully, Elden Ring offers a wide range of customization settings to help PC players optimize the game to their specific rig. Here are all the best settings you’ll need to make the most of the Lands Between’s huge landscapes.
Best PC Settings for Elden Ring
There are 14 different PC graphic settings that players will want to tweak to ensure their PC is maximizing its potential to run Elden Ring.
Before we head into the specifics, it’s worth noting that there is ray-tracing being implemented into Elden Ring via a future update. Also, the frame rate is capped at 60 FPS on PC.
When going into the graphic settings menu, players will either be able to tweak each of the 14 options one by one or choose one of four presets. These include Maximum, High, Medium, and Low.
Depending on your graphics card, we recommend playing around with the presets and seeing how they affect performance. Observe your FPS and see what settings get you as close to the 60 FPS cap as possible.
Players with a GTX 1060 reported averages of 35-40 FPS one the Maximum preset.
Here are the settings that players able to meet the minimum PC requirements should try for the best performance and graphics:
- Texture Quality: Medium
- Antialiasing Quality: Maximum
- SSAO: Medium

With these settings, any PC meeting the minimum requirements will run Elden Ring beautifully. Keep in mind that these are the settings we recommend and that every PC gaming rig is different. Players will want to tweak around some settings to truly find what is optimal for them.
