FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have finally released Elden Ring, an open-world adventure filled with danger and discovery. Prepare yourself well and it starts with the choice of platform, because unfortunately the action role-playing game doesn’t run smoothly everywhere.
PC gamers can try enabling G-Sync (Nvidia) or Freesync (AMD). If you want to play on PlayStation 5, turn on “Prioritize frame rate” in the settings. If this is too bad for you, you can still consider installing the PS4 version. However, keep in mind that your save will probably not transfer from PS5 to PS4.
If you want to improve Elden Ring’s frame rate on Xbox, you can also try enabling VRR, but you’ll also need a display that supports this feature.
We recommend this keepsake to start with
But now straight to the game. There is an important decision to make when creating the character. In the display, where you also give a name, you can select a “souvenir”. There are several available, and they each offer specific benefits.
We can guess the keepsake Goldene Saat to choose. With this you increase the number of consumable healing potions in a place of grace and that is a clear advantage, especially at the beginning.
At this point you will find one Videos from Youtube, which complements the article. You can display this with one click.
Golden seeds or holy tears can also be found later in Elden Ring. In the linked video you can even see all the localities.
Places of Grace and Fast Travel
Maybe in the first few minutes you’ll be looking for quick havens to rest, level up, or use the Elden Ring’s fast travel. Such places are so-called places of grace. They resemble the beacons from Dark Souls.
If Melina visited you at Limgrave’s Place of Grace, you can now use runes to increase your level and improve your attributes.
Discovered Places of Grace are also Elden Ring fast travel points, which you can easily travel to from your map. However, fast travel does not work with isolated Places of Grace.
Quickly buy the tool kit from the merchant
One of the map’s first sanctuaries is the Chapel of Elleh. There you will also find the first trader and you should buy the tool set from him right away to be able to produce items immediately. This item is easy to miss, but now you’re prepared.
Attempts to land critical hits
After a few minutes you are already in the first fights. Whether you’re sneaking up or you’re head-to-head, aim to hit the enemy in the back for extra damage. You’ll see a special animation and hear a powerful sound when you’ve attacked correctly.
Also try the counter, which seems rather new for Dark Souls players. If you have blocked an enemy attack, press the lower right shoulder button immediately afterwards.
Elden Ring is the new big project from FromSoftware.
These are just some first tips for Elden Ring, we will bring you more. So feel free to check back later.
