The Elden Ring release time depends on your platform and region, as the game is on a global release time. If you are in the US, then you get more peak gamer hours on the game, while the midnight oils are burning in Europe, with the game launching late into the night. However, the console launches seem to be largely midnight local time.

Below is a table making it easy to work out when the Elden Ring release times are, based on the information in Bandai Namco’s blog post.
