First Patch Incoming for Dark Souls III

By Keith Gray, 8 months ago
Dark Souls III was released just last week and already the team at FromSoftware has confirmed the first patch for the role-playing adventure title.

The patch details are vague at best, with the following being revealed as the issues that have been dealt with in the first update:

- Performance adjustment for Greatsword
- Battle performance adjustment for Dancer’s Enchanted Sword, Winged Knight Twinaxes
- Performance adjustment for Soul’s Greatsword, and Farron Flashsword
- Fix for issue where multiple items become impossible to use at Road of Sacrifices, Farron Keep, Cathedral of the Deep after clearing the game.
- General balance adjustments and bug fixes
Although the majority of the changes seem to be adjustments to weapons, the development team have also suggested that they've ironed out a chink in the armour of Souls to ensure that they are not as easy to deceive in some situations.

FromSoftware are aware of the "Regulations" problem that has been highlighted by many fans. However, that issue has not been resolved by the first patch as the developers are still working out how to fix the issue.

Following on from the game's recent release, publisher Namco Bandai has revealed a new trailer titled "Kingdom Fall" to showcase the long-awaited instalment in the saga.



Dark Souls III is available now on Xbox One, with the first patch update out today.
