Elden Ring PS5 Save Data Issue Gets Fixed

Elden Ring has received a day-one patch to fix a number of issues, including framerate drops, but an annoying data saving issue is currently plaguing the PlayStation 5 version of the game. The good news is that FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment have acknowledged the problem and limited it to turning off the console unexpectedly while playing or in rest mode.

According to Bandai Namco, players should not experience the aforementioned problem if they properly exit the game from the system menu. “We are aware of the cause of this issue and are working on a patch to correct it, but until the patch is released you will need to manually save your game by exiting the game regularly,” the publisher wrote. “We’re also working on a few other bug fixes and performance improvements as needed.”

Elden Ring’s PS5 issues are minor compared to PC performance. On Steam, the game is currently bombarded with negative reviews due to widespread stuttering and framerate drops. “We are currently experiencing some issues that prevent the game from playing properly under certain circumstances,” Bandai Namco said in a statement today. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and ask for your patience.”

Elden Ring received critical acclaim and became one of the highest-rated games on Metacritic in recent years. On OpenCritic, it is tied with Super Mario Odyssey as the highest-rated game ever. However, no game is without problems and FromSoftware works diligently to fix them. We’ll update our readers when a patch rolls out, so stay tuned.
