Elden Ring Update 1.12 adds new features ahead of the Shadow of Erdtree release

FromSoftware is rolling out a new update for Eldon’s Ring that adds several new features ahead of the release of Earthtree’s DLC Shadow.

Following today’s June 20th server maintenance, patch 1.12 is being applied to prepare the Elton Ring for the release of Shadow of the Earthtree on June 21st. It serves as an update to the Elton Ring base game and a day one patch for the hotly anticipated expansion.

Patch 1.12 adds new inventory features, including marking newly acquired items with a “!“ and a new tab called Recent Items, so players can quickly review recently acquired items.

Elsewhere, there are new summoning pool features, such as active summoning pools now being carried over to NG+, and a newly added map functions menu where individual summoning pools are enabled/disabled. FromSoftware reports that only active summoning pools are selected when using the Small Golden Effigy.

Also five new hairstyles have been added to the game. They can be selected during character creation by using the Cloud Mirror Stand or Rennella’s Respawn feature.

Shadow of the Earthtree is set to add new content to the beloved role-playing game. As with previous FromSoftware games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, accessing the DLC isn’t as simple as selecting it in a menu, as players have to tick off a few obscure achievements beforehand. Including beating up a favorite boss. Fortunately, IGN has a guide How to prepare for Shadow of the Earthtree DLC If you have to fight before the release of the expansion.

IGN’s Shadow of the Erdtree review returned 10/10. We said: “As the base game did before it, Elton Ring: Shadow of the Earthtree raises the bar for single-player DLC expansions. It takes everything that made the base game a landmark RPG, compresses it into a relatively compact 20-25 hour campaign, and gives more invested fans fantastic new challenges to chew on.
