    Despite not being able to play Elden Ring with Xbox and PC users, gamers on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 can interact. While you’re adventuring around the Lands Between on a PS4, you’ll come across other PS4 and PS5 players during multiplayer parts of the game. The reverse is true as well in that PS5 users can come across other PS5 and PS4 players.

    Xbox users can interact with players on other consoles in the same brand family. This means that Elden Ring players on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One can all play together. In this manner, there is both cross-generation gameplay and pseudo-cross-platform gameplay.

    The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are somewhat branded as different consoles for marketing reasons. However, in terms of functionality, the two are basically the same console—one’s just more powerful.
