Elden Ring has updated its own record for the most online players on Steam. If on the day of release there were 765 thousand players, then on Saturday evening the figure reached 861 thousand players.
At the same time, the game has only 67% of positive reviews and the category “Mixed”. Players complain about technical issues ranging from crashes to FPS drops.
The authors of Digital Foundry have already tested the game on PC and were surprised that the game made it to release in this form. Even top builds with an RTX 3090 and an Intel Core i9-10900k processor will not save you from performance problems. If you have the opportunity and patience, then it is better to wait for the first major patches.
