Elden Ring recently received a giant patch that, amongst different issues, addressed among the efficiency points affecting PC gamers, fastened sure NPC questlines that weren’t working, and added NPC quest markers. Right now a minor patch for the patch has been launched on PC, which needs to be utilized earlier than enjoying on-line.
Most notably, the patch notes embrace this: “Fastened a bug in multiplayer that allowed gamers to teleport others to incorrect map coordinates.” This repair is aimed toward a serious new exploit that had emerged only some days in the past, whereby Elden Ring hackers were entering players’ games and crashing them. When the participant restarted the sport and logged in, their character would spawn in a brand new location out-of-bounds and enter a recursive loop that sees them fall to their demise time and again.
You may see this glitch in motion beneath: hopefully you will not be seeing it once more.

Different main parts of the patch are a repair for Nepheli Loux’s questline, which was apparently not progressing for some gamers, and a bug that was inflicting gamers to die when descending from a spot close to Bestial Sanctum that shouldn’t be deadly. The Ash of Conflict known as Endure was not, in truth, granting the promised endurance—now it is going to.
You will not be capable of play on-line with out this patch, and it is dwell now. The main focus right here is clearly on fixing speedy issues however Elden Ring, nice as it’s, nonetheless wants some work on PC performance-wise. The sport could show that frame rate isn’t everything, however it could positively be good to play with out transitional stutters.
It is going to be attention-grabbing to see what FromSoftware chooses to deal with within the subsequent main patch, provided that in 1.3 it confirmed a willingness to mess with some fairly elementary facets of Elden Ring. The map now shows NPC locations, there’s extra NPC summons round bosses, some bosses have been barely nerfed, and the Mimic Tear Ash was nerfed into oblivion. The success of Elden Ring means there isn’t any scarcity of opinions about the way it might be ‘improved’—although I believe we are able to all agree that nixing the newest hacker nonsense was definitely one.
