In some cases, items may be stored in your chest due to lack of space or automatic transfer. Be sure to check your chest at any Site of Grace to see if your missing items are there.

If you still can’t find your items, try activating the Recent Items Tab in your inventory. Navigate to Display Settings and toggle on the Recent Items Tab to monitor new items you acquire.

After enabling the Recent Items Tab, pick up an item to see if it appears. If not, it might be a persistent bug. Here are a few suggestions to address this issue:

  • Verify integrity of game files: Check for corrupt files by verifying game files through Steam Library or Xbox Series X|S settings.
  • Reinstall Elden Ring: Consider uninstalling and reinstalling the game to potentially resolve the bug.
  • Wait for a hotfix: Developers may release a hotfix soon to address common bugs, so keep an eye out for updates.

Issues like the new inventory bug are not uncommon while playing Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree for the first time. Players have also reported other issues like the cocoon error or difficulties playing on PS5.
