FromSoftware’s upcoming open-world action RPG will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. In our Elden Ring hands-on review, we were wowed by the Closed Network Test on PS5, with our reviewer Mohammad Tabari stating it was imbued with stunning spectacle. For those that own a beefy gaming laptop, expect the same experience. But make sure you have 60GB of storage to spare and at least 12GB of RAM.
