Online multiplayer games and connectivity troubles go hand in hand, with some having a greater negative impact on the game than others. Elden Ring, too, features a few typical error messages, one of which reads, “Connection Error Returning To Your World.” It’s a disappointment for people who want to play coop or pvp in this game, so let’s have a look at what you can do to perhaps remedy it.
Similar to the Unable to summon cooperator issue, this error is related to the coop or pvp gameplay. Here are the things you need to check:
Check your Internet Connection
- First and foremost, ensure that your internet connection is stable and not intermittent. Due to a weak connection, the game might kick you out of multiplayer gameplay with frequent disconnections. There’s also a chance that the host’s internet was problematic.
- Reset your router or power cycle it by unplugging the cable, waiting for a minute, and plugging the cables back in.
- Another thing to try would be to use a wired connection. A wifi connection can cause your internet to dip sometimes, which has nightmarish consequences in this game.
Check if Elden Ring Servers are Down
Whether the internet connection is not the issue, see if the Elden Ring servers are down at that time. If that is the case, the only thing you can do is wait until the servers are restored and multiplayer functions are available. Because of server instability, players may experience slowness, repeated disconnections, login failures, and other issues, therefore it’s advised to avoid playing during this period to prevent losing progress. Because the game is so popular across all platforms, the servers frequently take a hit due to overcrowding.
Try Port Forwarding
This is strictly for those players who know what they are doing when we talk about Port Forwarding, since it does get a bit more technical. Here are the necessary ports for Elden Ring thanks to portforward.com.
Wait for a Patch
If you don’t want to tamper with the router settings, you should wait till the devs repair the multiplayer in a forthcoming patch. Elden Ring is a vast game with small and big issues that are being addressed in each patch, as well as making enemies/weapons more and less powerful. If you are unable to access the multiplayer mode without interruptions, please contact Elden Ring support for assistance. A workaround that some players are suggesting is to disable voice chat and that can be done via the game Settings > Network tab.
