Elden Ring patch 1.10 notes arrive for latest update

Elden Ring patch 1.10 releases on July 27, and the update is accompanied by a slew balance changes, gameplay adjustments, and bug fixes - here are the notes.

Elden Ring patch 1.10 arrives in the epic RPG game, giving us reason to return to the Lands Between for one more time ahead of the Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree release date. With balance changes, gameplay adjustments, and bug fixes, this is the first Elden Ring update we’ve had in four months, so if you’ve been thinking about jumping back in, now is a great time – at least once the maintenance period ends.

This Elden Ring patch changes critical hits slightly, and also tweaks poise in PvP, with more details below in the full Elden Ring 1.10 patch notes. The game’s official Twitter account says, “This update contains balance and gameplay adjustments and bug fixes. Maintenance will begin at 12am PDT / 3am EDT / 8am BST / 9am CEST and last three hours on all platforms.”

If you’re expecting a surprise Elden Ring DLC launch following this, you might want to rein in your expectations somewhat – while that would be very exciting news for us all, we still haven’t seen more than the slightest tease of what to expect from the upcoming Shadow of the Erdtree expansion, so it would be quite the shock if it dropped suddenly.

There’s no changes to any Elden Ring bosses here – instead this update increases the damage of critical hits, while lowering the punishment for missing them. There’s also a focus on more PvP balance, with some changes to poise, an increase to the angle at which you can land critical hits, and a lowering of the invulnerability window for the Quick Step and Hound’s Step skills.

Elden Ring patch 1.10 - Tweet from FromSoftware: "The #ELDENRING servers will undergo maintenance today, July 27 to deploy patch 1.10. This update contains balance & gameplay adjustments and bug fixes. Maintenance will begin at 0:00 PDT | 09:00 CEST | 16:00 JST and last 3 hours on all platforms. Thank you for your patience."
