Changes to save game progression even when the game is not terminated.
The publisher of Elden Ring warned PS5 players last week that if they put the console in rest mode or turn it off, the game may save wrongly. The players were told to exit the game through the menu. The new patch should hopefully fix this problem, but it's probably wise to keep quitting from the main menu until we know the patch actually works.
There is a fix for a bug that could cause the game to crash during battles with the Fire Giant, as well as a major problem preventing the game from recognizing players' graphics cards, resulting in poor performance.
My favorite thing about Elden Ring crashing non-stop since the latest patch is how every time you log back in it yells at you for not quitting properly— Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) March 2, 2022
Elden Ring has been getting praise all-around, but technical issues still remain a problem, including some that may have been introduced with this patch. The game has been crashing repeatedly since he installed the update, but it is not clear which platform he is playing on. Other PC and PS5 players have also been reporting issues after installing the patch, ranging from constant crashes, game freezing, and the sudden inability for PS4 players to play with people on PS5.
