Elden Ring Save File Corruption and Death loop issue.
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.
Workaround: Press Alt+F4 to kill the program before the character’s death and then immediately hit the map button once the game loads back up. If done correctly, and the player gets lucky, they’ll teleport safely to a Site of Grace.
If the above workaround fails for you, you can download the save file from the link below.
