Elden Ring is a game that’s designed to be a lot of fun. It features a great cast of characters to meet, and it features some incredible bosses that are as difficult as they come. That’s because of some impeccable gameplay design and a commitment to letting players do what they want with their builds and system-juggling.

The game also takes advantage of the fact that PCs have far more processing power than consoles do. That means that even a gaming PC bought just a few years ago can run Elden Ring at full resolution and high settings without any trouble. The recommended specifications do up the ante a little, but with higher core counts and simultaneous multi-threading on all modern processors it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a gaming PC that can handle the game easily.

To move faster in elden ring, all you need to do is hold down the sprint button (B on Xbox, or square on PlayStation). This will make your character pick up speed, and you can then use the left joystick to take a step back or dodge roll in any direction.

This simple mechanic is a crucial skill to learn, and it can be the difference between avoiding overwhelming odds in combat and being slaughtered by a horde of enemies. It’s also a fantastic way to traverse the Lands Between, and to cover more ground at once than you would be able to in a normal walk. However, there’s one important thing to note: running depletes your stamina while in combat, so you need to be careful about when you break into a sprint.
