Dark Souls III Patch v1.04 Released

A new patch for Dark Souls III, which brings the title to version 1.04, has been released today on Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The patch seems to alter the conditions to access some covenants and rare events tied to side character questlines, together with a number of bug fixes and balance fixes, some of which aren't really elaborated on.

Here's the changelog, which I borrowed fromĀ the patch's Steam announcement:

  • Item collection during multiplayer while accessing NPC and Covenant Alter is now working as intended.
  • Conditions for optional events is eased.
  • Conditions to get Rosaria's Finger is eased.
  • If they haven't visited the Untended Grave, players will not be teleported there.
  • Kicks cannot be parried.
  • The Crystal Sage will appropriately re-appear even after he has warped.
  • The Dragonslayer Armour won't die before the battle.
  • Knight Slayer Tsorig will no longer gesture unintendedly.
  • Siegward of Catarina will now be able to properly rescue Greirat once conditions are met.
  • If the player is equipped with a ring that increases Max HP, stats will now be properly reflected when opening the equipment screen.
  • The voice chat icon will now be displayed properly under the covenant panel.
  • Items, bonfire and the (Quit Game) option are now appropriately active even when disconnecting online.
  • If the game disconnects during a multiplayer session, it will no longer crash and return to the title screen.
  • Other issues causing crashes and returning to the title screen have been fixed.
  • Adjustments of the balance of game, improvements of performance and various bug fixes have been made.
