Elden Ring gets its first patch ahead of release tomorrow

Bandai Namco has announced it’s already dropping the first patch for upcoming RPG Elden Ring before its release tomorrow.

As per the publisher’s website, Version 1.02 mostly focuses on improving the stability of the game. However, the notes also mention improved player controls, balance adjustments, frame rate drops and the addition of missing background music. Furthermore, the update fixes a nasty bug that prevented Xbox Wireless headsets from working too.

Though it’s not a particularly revelatory list of fixes, Bandai Namco does request that players download and install the patch before they begin playing. They also mention that they intend to release an update to add Ray Tracing to the game soon. The exact timing of that update will be revealed in future announcements.

From Software’s latest has already made huge waves with critics this week. Our very own Josh says the following in our review: “In Elden Ring, FromSoftware offers us an open world with a rich and heady history, yours for the exhuming. Or not. Whether you’re a lore junky or you simply crave a fight, this is a game with such a potently present tense that hours stream by without your noticing—so fast is the seal of its mood.”

The Elden Ring 1.02 patch should be available to download on launch from your console or PC platform of choice. Elden Ring arrives tomorrow on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
