Ray tracing is a visual effect that dramatically improves lighting and reflections. It’s a long-requested feature in the Elden Ring, though after technical issues at launch (especially on PC) some might be wary of how ray tracing might affect performance.

Her listing was also leaked by data agents. Back in October, dataminer sennoutantei noticed list strings related to ray tracing features (as shared by Lance McDonland), indicating that visual improvements were on the way.

This new patch also includes PvP-exclusive balance adjustments, essentially reducing the effectiveness of certain skills and spells. This is due to the recently added Colosseum PvP DLC.

There are also more balance tweaks, war ash, and bug fixes. That’s right: over a year after release, FromSoftware is still working on bug fixes.
