From Software released a new hotfix today that fixes a bug in Malenia that was unintentionally making the boss much tougher.
Double Update to version 1.04.1, this patch fixes a bug with the Malenia, Blade of Miquella boss fight in the Elden Ring endgame that allowed her to heal at any time if you were in online co-op. This was a problem because Malenia is only supposed to heal itself by hurting you, vampirically. The fact that she is able to self-heal at all times caused quite a conundrum for players looking to defeat her, which is already arguably the toughest boss in the entire game. Fortunately, this new patch fixes that. , and it also brings some other fixes.
Here’s what Update 1.04.1 brings to Elden Ring:
- Fixed a bug where the duration of the Cerulean Hidden Tears effect was scaled down
- Fixed a bug with Malenia, Blade of Miquella where her HP was not properly healed in the online multiplayer environment
- Fixed a bug that caused some bosses to die at unexpected times.
- Fixed a bug that caused the “Elden Beast” boss to not work correctly under certain circumstances
- Correction of some texts
“The version number of this update displayed in the lower right corner of the title screen will be: App Ver. 1.04.1, Regulations Ver. 1.04.2,” read the patch notes.
