It looks like the game will be more demanding than ‘Dark Souls’

FromSoftware’s Elden Ring is right around the corner – it will drop on 25 February 2022 on Playstation and Xbox consoles as well as on PC.

PC gamers in particular have been hoping to hear news regarding the specifications required to run the game. Elden Ring is set to be the company’s biggest title both in terms of scale and technical demand.

Now the company has officially revealed both the minimum and recommended specs for PC and it looks like the game will be more demanding than predecessors such as Dark Souls.
