…Or at least, it’s supposed to. Despite today’s update, which is supposed to improve the game’s stability, many players are still experiencing crashes and difficulty summoning co-op partners. Still, it’s nice that FromSoft is clearly aware of the issue and continuing to work on it. While Elden Ring has — in this author’s humble opinion — exceeded expectations in most areas, the game has had a disappointing amount of crashes and stuttering problems. Getting a co-op session to last more than a few minutes has also been harder than in any previous FromSoft title.

On top of the stability fix are a few bug fixes, including a non-specific fix for “some bosses” that would die when they weren’t supposed to. It seems likely that this could be the Fire Giant’s propensity for killing itself; the Valiant Gargoyle Duo cheese may also have been removed in this fix, although we haven’t had a chance to test it yet ourselves.
