They’re easy to miss, but a couple of places are selling Game Of The Year contender Elden Ring for less than its usual asking price.
Some of the biggest games of 2022 are reduced for Black Friday, including ones that only came out quite recently, like FIFA 23 and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Yet there is one glaring omission: Elden Ring. Despite launching back in February, it’s yet to see a price cut.
We’ve scoured far and wide to try and find any sort of reduction and while a couple of places are selling the game for less than its normal price, it’s still not much of a saving.
Firstly, there’s Base, at least for the PlayStation versions. A PlayStation 4 copy costs £39.95, while the PlayStation 5 version is only about £4 extra at £42.85.
Considering Sony is selling both at £49.99, you are saving money, even if it’s not really that much.
If you don’t care about owning the game physically, you could buy the PlayStation 4 version from Base and upgrade to a digital copy of the PlayStation 5 version for free.
UK postage is also free, though you can spend an extra £3.95 for express shipping.
Elden Ring (PS4) – £39.95
Elden Ring (PS5) – £42.85
The Xbox version, which is playable on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, isn’t that much cheaper than on Microsoft’s store, unfortunately.
At Base, it costs £48.99, only £1 less than from Microsoft.
The only other site we could find any sort of discount on Elden Ring was CDKeys, which doesn’t sell physical copies.
While it lacks any keys for the PlayStation versions, it is selling the Xbox version for £40.99, which is an 18% discount on its usual price.

PC owners can get the game for even less, at a 25% discount, bringing it down to £37.49.
In case you haven’t checked yet, no, Elden Ring is not included in Steam’s autumn sale, so it’s still full price over there.
Why? Much the same reason that Nintendo games are rarely discounted: the game is still selling and demand hasn’t dropped enough that a price is necesssary.
Elden Ring is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
