Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have revealed some new tech details about Elden Ring. According to the teams, the PC version will be locked at 60fps, will support resolutions up to 4K, and will feature Ray Tracing effects.
Unfortunately, Bandai Namco did not provide any additional information about the Ray Tracing effects. However, we do know that these effects will be coming via a patch. Thus, we can assume that the day-1 version will not feature them.
In Elden Ring, players will ride through the vast fields, gallop over rolling hills, and leap to the top of rocky crags on your ephemeral steed, revealing a world teeming with life and danger.
The game will have mythic creatures that prowl the veldts, ineffable horrors that lurk in the bogs and marshes, and all manner of soldiers and itinerant warriors. Moreover, shy creatures will nibble on sweet grasses or scuttle through the underbrush.
Furthermore, players can try dozens of skills and find one to best suit their style. Players can practice stealth to avoid danger or catch enemies unaware. Additionally, they can use the environment, the weather, and the time of day to gain an advantage.
The game will also rely on dodge and parry mechanics. Players will have to learn the art of combat where they must read their enemy’s intentions. Thus, a well-timed dodge or parry could be the difference between life and death.
Elden Ring will release on February 25th, 2022!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
