Elden Ring received a day-one patch to address a variety of issues, including frame rate drops, but the PS5 version of the game is currently plagued by an aggravating save data problem. The good news is that FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment have acknowledged the problem, which has been limited down to the console turning off suddenly when playing or in rest mode.
How to avoid Elden Ring PS5 save data issue
Players should not encounter the aforementioned issue if they exit the game via the system menu, according to Bandai Namco. “We are aware of the cause of this issue and are working on a patch to remedy it,” the publisher noted. “However, until the patch is ready, please save your game manually by exiting the game on a frequent basis.” “As needed, we’re also working on a few other problem fixes and performance enhancements.”
In comparison to its PC performance, Elden Ring’s PS5 difficulties are minor. Due to severe stuttering and frame rate reductions, the game is presently receiving unfavorable reviews on Steam. “We are currently experiencing some issues that prevent the game from functioning correctly in some circumstances,” Bandai Namco said in a statement today. “Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may create and thank you for your patience.”
Elden Ring gained widespread acclaim, becoming one of Metacritic’s best-reviewed games in recent years. It’s tied for the most positive reviews on OpenCritic with Super Mario Odyssey. However, no game is without flaws, and FromSoftware is working hard to address them. Stay tuned as we’ll notify our readers when a patch is released.
