FromSoftware's Fix: Turn Off Mouse Apps to Boost Erdtree FPS

Jun 28, 2024 1:06 PM

FromSoftware has alerted players that Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC might experience performance issues due to computer mouse software running in the background. Released on June 21 to critical praise, including a 10/10 from IGN, the DLC faced community backlash for performance problems on both consoles and PCs, which led to review bombing and a 'mixed' rating on Steam. A recent tweet from FromSoftware recommends closing third-party mouse-control apps to stabilize frame rates. Additionally, they suggest checking ray-tracing settings, as these could also cause FPS issues. Despite these hiccups, the expansion has sold over five million copies within three days of release, showcasing its popularity. Future patches are expected to address these performance issues.

What can I do to fix performance issues in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree on PC?

Try closing any third-party mouse-control apps running in the background and check if ray-tracing settings are enabled inadvertently. These steps could help stabilize the frame rate while playing the DLC.

Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco, has been a monumental success since its original release in February 2022. Known for its expansive open world, challenging gameplay, and rich lore, the game has established itself as a modern classic. Collaborating with George R.R. Martin, the lore and storytelling have captivated a global audience, amplifying its success and solidifying FromSoftware's reputation for creating immersive and challenging gaming experiences.
