Bandai Namco has revealed the changelog for Elden Ring’s day-1 update. This patch is 13GB in size and will be applied automatically to the Steam version (so you won’t have to separately download it).
According to the release notes, Update 1.02 resolves frame rate drops under certain conditions. Various reports suggest that it also reduces the stuttering issues while exploring the open-world environment.
Additionally, this patch brings text and balance adjustments. It also improves play controls, and packs NPC event fixes and general adjustments.
Lastly, Bandai Namco re-confirmed that it will be adding Ray Tracing effects to the game via a post-launch update. The publisher will reveal more details about this Ray Tracing in the future.
Elden Ring releases tomorrow on Steam. Since Bandai Namco has not provided us with a review code, we’ll be testing the launch version once it unlocks.
