FromSoftware created a masterpiece in Elden Ring, putting most other open-world games to shame. The game is one of the highest-rated of all time, and rightly so.

That's why we are pleased to report Elden Ring already got its first post-launch update, and we've got the patch notes to share.

In this article, we take a look at the Elden Ring 1.02 update patch notes, including all the fixes and improvements (including fps drop issues) which FromSoftware has deployed, so let's get started.
