Three weeks after its release on February 25, 2022, the buzz about FromSoftware's latest title, ELDEN RING, continues to spread in various places.

 Even though most players have been playing since the day of its release, most of them have yet to play through its vast world. In this issue, we will provide a summary of the latest information and related information announced after March 12, 2022 for those players.

Elden Ring sold more than 12 million copies worldwide & shipped more than 1 million copies in Japan.

 Elden Ring has shipped more than 1 million copies in Japan and more than 12 million copies worldwide, according to a release from Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. What's more, this is a surprising figure as of March 14, 2022, about half a month after its release.

 Considering the huge number of people still talking about "Eldenring" on social networking sites, and the large number of fans distributing gameplay, this number is expected to continue to grow.

Latest update files distributed

 On March 17, 2022, an update file (App Ver. 1.03) was distributed to improve gameplay stability and balance adjustments. Various changes were made to various aspects.

 Notable among the additions is the ability to record an icon and the NPC's name on a map when encountering an NPC. The location of merchants and other information can now be checked on the map, which is quite convenient. Also noteworthy is the addition of new phases to some NPC events.


 In addition, the balance adjustment made in this update has improved a number of magic techniques, but at the same time, the "frost stamping," "blood slash," "blood slash," "blood stabbing," and "blood slash" techniques, which were known as too powerful warfare techniques, have been improved. The "Sword of Night and Fire" and the "Ironclad Shield" were revised downward.

 The "frost stamping" effect remains broad, but its power has been reduced and it can no longer be fired in short bursts as before. On the other hand, there are still countless powerful techniques, so players who have been fighting mainly with these techniques should try using other powerful techniques to find the one that suits their style and situation.
