Elden Ring Update 01.002.001 Is Live Now On PS5 – Here Are The Details

From Software has released a quick update for Elden Ring today on PS5. This patch addresses some minor stability issues.

While the update is now out on PS5, it doesn’t appear to have hit the PS4. The patch needs to be downloaded so this is not just a server-side update. It is also leading to some major issues for the Xbox consoles with players expressing the “Network Status Failed” Error on their consoles.

This update has a very small download size and should be under 500 MB. If you are getting a large update, it is likely that you didn’t have the previous patches installed on your console, or it could be due to a bug.

  • Start-up issues related to Easy Anti Cheat (EAC) have been improved.

      • For the PC version, updating your graphics card drivers to the latest version may significantly improve performance.
    • About the phenomenon of game data that does not save correctly in the PlayStation 5 version
      • If the PS5 console is unexpectedly turned off while playing a game or in rest mode, saved data may not be saved correctly.
      • We are aware of the cause of this issue and are working on a patch to correct it, but until the patch is released, please save your game manually by exiting the game regularly.

    • On Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam, the use of symbols in the group password may cause matching and asynchronous element creation to fail. For context, setting a specific symbol as a group password will cause problems with all online elements.
          • Can’t start multiplayer since you can’t see or write your signature, etc.
          • Fail to create asynchronous elements (blood characters seem to have been created but is actually not).
