Elden Ring PS5 Crashes

Elden Ring has been quite an interesting game since its release a few days ago, but as it is with every new game, this one has some problems too.

Several players have been reporting that while playing, they get a crash so big that it turns the whole PS5 console off. And the worst part is that the console will not turn on unless its plug gets pulled out. To top that, all of the progress that the players have made completely vanishes. Some even say that the game is good and its performance average.

Do you have the game? Did you have any problems with the game on your console or PC?

  1. 30-45 minutes in and the ps5 shuts completely off. Unplug it and turn it back on with save files deleted. The only ones that don’t get deleted are the ones that are saved before turning ps5 off properly. Read where playing the PS4 version on the PS5 actually keeps that from happening. They need a fix real quick.

    1. I’ve had this happen with both versions of the game. The PS4 version taking longer to crash though. I have a PS5 and all the PS5 versions of games crash not when I play the PS4 versions. This is the only ps4 game that was turned my console off. I have no clue how to fix the issue. I just want to play PS5 games.

  2. This is the first and only news site that I have heard report this bug in full. I commend whoever wrote this article. Every other news source has only parroting what bandai namco said about using rest mode which is a load a bs. Thanks for getting the word out. I’ve also been hearing a few have had it happen on ps4, but I don’t know anyone personally that has had it happen on ps4. But I’ve know someone affected on ps5. It’s sad because I won’t play the game until I know its fixed. I couldn’t imagine losing all my progress.

    1. Hello there!
      It is so nice to hear that someone appreciates what we do. We strive to deliver every news and problems in the gaming world without any biased content. Regarding the Elden Ring crashes, we have heard that the problem might be temporarily solved if you play the PS4 version on a PS5 console. As far as any updates to fix this, nobody has heard anything yet.

  3. Same had been happening to me since I purchased the game on launched day. PS5 keeps shutting off everytime I play the PS5 version. My son pays PS4 version on my PS5 and had no issues so far. Not sure why this keep happening. At first my friend thinks it has something to do with my new M.2 SSD drive. But I had it installed in my ps5 for about two months with no problems

  4. Dude this is happening to me and I’ve lost progress twice. Actually the first time this happened my PS5 wouldn’t turn on even after unplugging it and I had to factory reset the whole thing. Then it happened again today. Dude, I love this game but I can’t play it and I’m worried about it messing up my console. I don’t have the money for another one or two get it fixed if something happens. I’m really upset about this whole thing.

  5. I’ve had this happen with both versions of the game. The PS4 version taking longer to crash though. I have a PS5 and all the PS5 versions of games crash not when I play the PS4 versions. This is the only ps4 game that was turned my console off. I have no clue how to fix the issue. I just want to play PS5 games.

  6. I have the Xbox series X version and yes, the game freezes and turn off the console. It happen to me twice. I hope Bandai Namco fix this in an update

  7. I have been playing Elden Ring for one day so far and didn’t get crashes until later, but once later came around I had my ps5 shut down hard twice. It wasn’t in rest mode the whole day and the console itself wasn’t overheated and hot to the touch, just warm. It seems that Elden Ring saves progress as you play thank goodness so I didn’t lose anything, but it shut down before the coastal cave dungeon boss and shutdown during the catacombs gargoyl dungeon boss. I haven’t had my ps5 shut off this hard since the first year I had it but it has made Elden Ring a chore to play and has me anxious, making it hard to enjoy the world in game.
