We know what we will be doing this weekend — playing Elden Ring! But if you want to do the same, you'll need to know if your PC is capable of running Elden Ring at its minimum requirements or recommended specs.


Elden Ring is said to be as tough as Dark Souls in terms of combat, but with the open-world exploration offering something for all sorts of players to enjoy. So it is a game that everyone should be able to get something out of, and one with a world that looks to be as captivating as they come.
