Elden Ring has a new update available for players to install, which will provide plenty of bug fixes and quality of life improvements. Some players are experiencing a login error preventing them from accessing the game's servers.

Failed to Login to Elden Ring Game Server error – How to fix

Players struggling to return to The Lands Between will be greeted with an error code prompt reading "Failed to log in to the Elden Ring game server." While there isn't much you can do to fix the error immediately, there are a few practical ways to resolve the error and get you back in the game.

Below, we've outlined a few suitable methods you can implement to fix this technical error:

Check for any server updates

The best way to gain more information about why you're receiving this error is by checking the game's server status. There isn't a dedicated site to see if the servers are down or currently under maintenance; you can visit the game's official Twitter account for more information.

If the servers are down due to maintenance, the only thing left is to wait out the maintenance period until they're back online. As soon as it's back online, you can launch the game to check if you're still receiving the error code before jumping back into the game.

Ensure you have a stable internet connection

Another method to consider is checking if your internet connection is stable and that it isn't disconnecting you from servers. To check the bandwidth and latency to their servers, you can run any of the available internet speed tests to gain insight into whether your internet is giving you the best connection speeds to connect.

We recommend using Speedtest by Ookla, which will provide you with the best and definitive results based on speed and performance. For those using a wireless internet connection, try switching to a wired or Ethernet connection until stability resumes.

Update your graphics drivers
