elden ring's shadow of the erdtree gets exciting patch 1.12.2

Jun 26, 2024 9:21 AM

FromSoftware released Update 1.12.2 for Elden Ring following the launch of the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. This patch brings several balancing tweaks, particularly revising the attack and damage negation curve scaling of the Shadow Realm Blessings. PC players may encounter an issue with raytracing settings automatically enabling if saved data from previous game versions is loaded, which can be manually adjusted in the Graphics Settings. Future updates will also address various balance adjustments and bug fixes, though the current patch does not solve the Steam Deck issue, which causes the game to be unplayable if idle for over five minutes.

What changes were made in Elden Ring's Update 1.12.2?n

The update revised the attack and damage negation curve scaling for Shadow Realm Blessings, with increased negation for the first half of the Blessing enhancements and a more gradual scale for the second half. The final level of Blessing enhancements now grants slightly increased attack and damage negation. Additionally, a bug on PC causing raytracing settings to enable automatically was addressed, advising players to manually turn it off if needed.

Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware, has been a sensation since its release, captivating players with its expansive world, challenging gameplay, and deep lore. Shadow of the Erdtree, the latest expansion, continues this trend by adding robust new content including difficult bosses and complex quest lines. The expansion has been praised for its ability to condense the essence of Elden Ring into a compact and highly engaging campaign, making it a must-play for fans.
