Today's the big day if you've been waiting on Elden Ring! The game is out right now on Xbox, and it actually comes with a day one patch — although you may not have even noticed as it began rolling out prior to release yesterday.
So, what's included in the patch? It's not a whole lot of content, but rather adjustments to things like controls, frame rate drops and balancing, along with a few other things. Here's the full list of major patch notes:
- Improved player controls
- Addition and adjustment of BGM
- Text adjustments
- Balance adjustments
- NPC event fixes and adjustments
- Fixed frame rate drops under certain conditions
- Fixed text bug in some languages
- Fixed a bug that prevented the Xbox wireless headset from working properly
As you probably have seen by now, Elden Ring has got off to a fantastic start with the critics, already shaping up to be a potential Game of the Year winner for 2022 with a score of 97 for PS5 and 95 for Xbox Series X on Metacritic.
You don't need the New Zealand trick anymore — it's out right now across all regions, but remember that if you haven't bought it yet, you can use Microsoft Rewards to get 6000 points for free by purchasing it on the Microsoft Store.
