Please update before playing, the editor says.
Bandai Namco has started releasing a patch for Elden Ring that will focus on improving gameplay stability.
Today, publisher Bandai Namco released their new patch notes for Xbox and PlayStation consoles (sorry, no news on the PC version yet). Bandai Namco asks players “please apply the latest patch before playing the game”, and apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
The main Elden Ring issues that will be fixed in this update are:
• Improved player controls
• Added and adjusted BGM
• Text adjustments
• Balance adjustments
• Fixes and adjustments to NPC events
• Fixed frame rate drops in certain conditions
• Fixed text bug in some languages
• Fixed a bug that prevented the Xbox Wireless Headset from working properly
An announcement regarding the implementation of ray tracing in Elden Ring will be announced later, Bandai Namco said.
Elden Ring is now available for preload on all platforms. Those looking for base game download file sizes can check out Lottie’s guide here. Please note however that the file size will increase as patches such as this are added to the game.
Eurogamer’s Aoife gave Elden Ring an “Essential” following her review, praising the game: “Luxurious visual design, dark and detailed story and a large but intricate open world”.
