THE PUBLIC, DIFFICULT TO CONVINCE
Finally available since February 25, Elden Ring was able to be tested more thoroughly over the weekend. Three days after the release of the last From Software, players were able to rub shoulders with the first " masterpiece of 2022 " and did not hesitate to publish their opinions after a first feeling. And since the first comments recorded when the title was released, the trend seems to have evolved slightly: estimated as average on Steam on Friday with 16,000 ratings, the title now records fivefold. And the some 70,000 comments posted have changed the general appreciation to a rather positive one, but which remains far from the dithyrambic opinions of the press.
Mixed opinions that can also be found on metacritic, an aggregator of press ratings but also from the public. While the game inherits a 97/100 on the press side (alongside a handful of games), it's only a 7.6/10 that is scored by players. " PS3 graphics, no improvements since Dark Souls 3 , an empty open world... " can we read in the many comments left on metacritic.
AN OPTIMIZATION ABOUT TO BE REACHED?
But what annoys the most is probably the technical optimization of the title, questioned since Friday but which seems to be subject to adjustments by FromSoftware. Just this morning , we were telling you about the various patches that occurred during the weekend. Modifications concerning PC media (optimization of the mouse and compatibility with anti-cheating software) but also the PS5 (number of files to load at the entrance to a new reduced area) and also for Xbox players who were unable to connect to online mode. No information has been released regarding the various fluidity issues mentioned on Friday .
Through this first weekend, he was also curious to follow the adventures of many Internet users on the web. It would seem that Elden Ring is for many the first From Software experience.
