Elden Ring will have a Performance Mode and a Graphics Mode on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, according to the Collector’s Edition listing on GameStop.
First discovered by PushSquare, if you go to the Collector’s Edition listing for Elden Ring on either PS5 or Xbox Series X, you can find all kinds of details about FromSoftware’s upcoming open-world RPG. Under the “Enhanced Experience” section, GameStop’s listing says Elden Ring will have two gameplay modes.
“Using the power of [the] new generation of consoles, [Xbox Series X/S and PS5] will allow players to personalize their experience by choosing between Graphic Mode to enhance the game’s visuals (up to 4K) or Performance Mode for a higher frame rate (up to 60 FPS),” the GameStop listing reads.
If this is true, it would line up with what we’ve seen in other cross-generation titles. Many games releasing on both previous-gen consoles and new-gen consoles feature some kind of quality or graphics mode that focuses more on the resolution and a performance mode that hones in on higher frame rates on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Elden Ring featuring these two gameplay modes would make sense.
However, FromSoftware has not officially announced such a thing and right now, the GameStop listing is the only indication that Elden Ring will have two gameplay modes. Hopefully, we’ll learn more about what’s in store for Elden Ring’s gameplay on new-gen consoles soon. Elden Ring hits PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 25.
