It’s also telling that Valve is already planning a Steam Deck 2. That’s off in the distance, but definitely something Valve is around thinking about, in terms of what features to offer and how powerful it should be. Elden Ring costs, and it comes to 8.76.
Elden Ring is officially Steam Deck Verified, and has been approved in every category that Valve judges compatibility on. First spotted by PCGamesN, Elden Ring has been given the Steam Deck Verified rating by Valve.
Announced in July 2021, Steam Deck is described as “a powerful all-in-one portable PC” capable of running the latest AAA games. Steam Deck runs the latest version of Valve’s SteamOS software – which is based on Linux – allowing players to access their Steam games library and all the platform’s features.
While Elden Ring’s performance issues aren’t exclusive to PC gamers, those with desktops appear to be getting the brunt of it. As a result, Elden Ring currently holds a “mixed” review score on Steam, which is a far cry from what you’d expect from a game that many consider as one of the best of all time.
New Elden Ring patch adds the game’s biggest quality of life improvement yet. Finally, you can just quit to desktop. FromSoftware has released a new patch for Elden Ring (opens in new tab), which updates the game to version 1.05 (opens in new tab) and is required for online play.
Elden Ring receives a new round of improvements as part of its 1.05 patch, now available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. From Software corrects some of the issues that remained since its launch, such as the possibility of being able to reach certain areas by breaking the stage.
Morgan flat out describes the game’s optimization on the PC “is much more of a distraction - where consoles don’t see the same degree of stuttering.” Although this could be fixed in future patches, as it stands, the best platform to play Elden Ring on is the PlayStation 5.
Verify integrity of game files
Missing or corrupted game files will prevent your game from launching properly. To see if that’s the case with your Elden Ring, you can verify the integrity of your game files. Open your Steam client. Under LIBRARY, right-click your game title and select Properties.
Each of From Software’s Souls games is playable on Steam Deck, too, as Wario64 notes on Twitter. Sekiro, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, and Dark Souls III are all Verified, meaning they meet the same compatibility requirements that Elden Ring does.
The game requires an Intel i5-8400 CPU (or Ryzen 3 3300X), which are great processors; however, they are years old at this point, and any modern CPU would be able to run the game flawlessly.
“Some functionality is not accessible when using the default controller configuration, requiring use of the touchscreen or virtual keyboard or a community configuration”
Valve’s Steam Deck is a powerful, flexible gaming handheld that feels great and lets you take your games on the go. Just don’t expect it to last too long, and know that some games may not work perfectly out of the box.
The entire APU inside the Steam Deck is rated between 4W and 15W of power. That means that though it’s using AMD’s latest Zen 3 CPU architecture, the lower power ultimately limits how fast the CPU can run.
Elden Ring on Steam Deck closely matches the performance on PS4 in 720p. While Elden Ring has been having numerous issues on PC, the version on Steam Deck is now running a lot smoother and Valve’s Pierre-Loup Griffais has shared how they fixed the handheld gaming PC’s problems with the game.
It’s pretty safe to say that Elden Ring is a tough game. Frequent ambushes and enemies that can kill you with a single hit can make the first few hours very difficult.
Dark Souls 2’s overall difficulty is still lower than Elden Ring’s thanks to its simple, slow enemies, and Elden Ring’s toughest fights take cues from the Fume Knight.
The Steam Deck can last 6+ hours if you’re playing less graphically demanding games like “Celeste,” but higher-end games quickly exact their toll.
There’s no doubting that, right now, the Steam Deck is the world’s most powerful handheld gaming console, beating off the likes of the Nintendo Switch comfortably.
Change the Nvidia Control Panel Settings
Open up the Nvidia Control Panel> Manage 3D Settings> Shader Cache Size to Unlimited. After this, check if you still face stuttering or frame drops in Elden Ring.
Expect Elden Ring to be quite heavy on the CPU use since it’s an open world role playing game that will surely have lots of units, NPCs, and multiple action sequences.
A broken or outdated graphics driver can trigger a variety of gaming issues such as constant stuttering or massive FPS drops. If you’re playing AAA titles like Elden Ring with high system requirements, you should definitely update your graphics driver to gain the best in-game experience.
Elden Ring patch 1.05 brings NG+ changes, performance improvements, and plenty of bug fixes. Elden Ring’s latest patch isn’t exciting, but it improves the game’s quality of life and stability.
Elden Ring PC Performances Fixes. Many people are experiencing poor performance when playing Elden Ring on PC. While Bandai Namco has confirmed a patch is coming to improve framerates, reduce stuttering, and more, there are some in-game and Windows settings you can change to make the experience better right now.
