How to Refund Elden Ring on PC

Refund Elden Ring – Elden Ring is an AAA title from FromSoftware is, undoubtedly, one of the most anticipated gaming titles of 2022, and it is easily visible from the comments it is getting from the community and the reviewers.

The game is doing tremendously well. At the time of me writing this article, around 650,000 players are online playing the game. Not only that. Many reviewers, including IGN, gave Elden Ring a 10, calling it a “Masterpiece”.

Speaking about the game, Elden Ring is an open-world Action RPG played from a third-person perspective, and quite similar to some other games developed by FromSoftware, such as the Souls series, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, etc. And all of these games have one thing is common. They are extremely difficult. It is not everyone’s cup of tea. I mean, if you have never played games like Dark Souls, you are bound to have a horrible time in Elden. Most of the bosses can eliminate you in few shots. You would have to learn their Attack Patterns, and in this process you might get eliminated too many times. As if the performance issues, bugs, and errors weren’t enough.

I can understand how some people would term is as “not enjoyable”. I am also seeing players, who are used to playing games at high frame rate, on their high refresh rate monitors, have a tough time, too. Elden Ring comes with a 60 FPS lock, and it is a dealbreaker for many high-end PC owners.

Anyway, Steam allows you to refund games, if you don’t end up liking it, after playing it for the while. In order to be eligible for a Refund on Steam, you have to make sure that you have not played the game for more than 2 hours or 160 minutes, and it hasn’t been 14 days since you have purchased the game.
