There are two options to choose from when starting to play Elden Ring. One is to pass the Middle Lands completely cut off from the world, no help or troll messages on the ground. The other possibility lies in connecting to the servers of Software and be clear that they can invade us.
It is a very real possibility, since there are players who just want to cause evil by annihilating us. However, there is one type of invasion that we are not going to want in any way. As revealed by PC Gamer, several users have detected that some hackers in the PC version are causing infinite loops of death to those they invade.
⚠️Elden Ring PSA for PC players⚠️
There’s an exploit going around on PC where hackers will corrupt your save file while you’re invaded.
First they will crash your game, and when you open it back up, your character will be constantly falling to their death… pic.twitter.com/8et3bl8T1I

Elden Ring Public Service Alert for PC Gamers
There is an exploit on PC where hackers will corrupt your save file while they invade you. They will first lock the game, and when you open it again, your character will constantly fall to the death of it…
As you can see in the video, the hacker manages to close Elden Ring and by the time we start it again, we will be immersed in a constant free fall That will only cause death. A loop from which there seems to be no escape, but there is a temporary solution.
In the absence of From Software including a new patch that eradicates the problem, on Reddit it is recommended to crush the button to open the map on the controller. There is small space of time in which it is still possible to interact despite not being able to move. If we succeed, the best thing will be to hit Y or triangle, depending on the command, and the marker will go directly to the place of Grace of the Round Table.
Hopefully, we’ll be able to show up there and this hell will have been sorted out. Other possibilities are obviously play offline or save a backup from your save file. Prevention is better than cure and the truth is that the Japanese developer already announced that the Dark Souls servers on PC were going to remain closed until after the launch of Elden Ring.
