Quite possibly the most notable addition from the latest Elden Ring update is changes made to the summoning pools.

Elden Ring summoning has vastly been improved

From now on, you will be able to send summoning signs to summoning pools to multiple areas of the game, even those far away. It’s a small change, but one that will make being called up and called to a little easier.

However, according to the patch notes, when sending a co-op sign to faraway areas, the summoning pool function will be disabled in the Mohgwyn Palace. 

Elsewhere in the Elden Ring update, it seems that combat movement has been made more fluid, and various quality of life, as well as bug fixes, have been made.

We love Elden Ring!

In our review of Elden Ring, we said: “If Dark Souls was the earthquake, Elden Ring is the aftershock. In a sense, it’s more of a love letter to the Soulsborne fanbase, incorporating dramatic fragments of each past game into a single product that is rewarding and fulfilling.

Courtesy of recent Elden Ring news, rumours are making the rounds that FromSoftware’s latest smash hit could be headed to Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming library.
