Even a game as incredible as Elden Ring it’s not perfect, but fromSoftware’s open world epic has launched with some technical issues, the Japanese developer has been working behind-the-scenes since its recent launch to iron those out. Patches have been pushed out for the game’s PC version.
The patch notes, interestingly, are very brief- they focus entirely on one thing. Update 1.02.3 has been released to target one issue only, “Fixed a problem in which controllers connected to the PC were not recognized under certain circumstances.” A sizeable portion of the game’s already-massive PC payer base will, of course, play the game on the platform with a controller as opposed to a keyboard and mouse setup, so this should come as a relief.
Elden Ring has, to a little surprise, gotten off to a stellar start where sales are concerned. Last week, it’s also the biggest launch for a non-FIFA or Call of Duty game in the region since 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2. Meanwhile, in Japan, the game debuted with over 278,000 units sold over a three-day period.
Elden Ring is available for PS5, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can read our review of the game through here.
