Elden Ring 1.02 Patch Fixes Frame Rate Drops and More; Timing for Ray Tracing Implementation to Be Revealed in the Future


A new Elden Ring patch is now live on all formats, introducing some welcome performance improvements and more.

The 1.02 patch fixes, among other things, frame rate drops under certain conditions. As I highlighted in my review, the PC version does suffer from performance drops in the open-world in version 1.01, so this is a very welcome fix. I had the chance to try out the new update, and it indeed does improve performance.
