FromSoftware has released the first PC patch for Elden Ring. According to the release notes, Update 1.02.1 attempts to resolve some issues related to Easy Anti Cheat (EAC).
Additionally, this patch attempts to improve the mouse controls. Furthermore, reduces the number of files needed to load when entering a new area.
Now since we’ve been benchmarking the game, we can share our thoughts on this first PC patch. Unfortunately, the game still has major stuttering issues on both AMD’s and NVIDIA’s hardware. So yeah, don’t expect a smooth gaming experience even when with this new patch.
Not only that, but the mouse controls feel a bit worse now. Mouse sensitivity is lower than before, resulting in really slow mouse/camera movement. Thankfully, those with different DPI profiles can overcome this issue. Still, FromSoftware should provide better mouse controls (and not just lower the overall mouse sensitivity). Oh, and while we are at it, let’s also get an option to completely remove the game’s camera auto-centering functionalities (as they are completely unnecessary when playing with the mouse).
Our PC Performance Analysis will most likely go live tomorrow. Below you can also find the complete changelog of this first PC patch.
