Elden Ring: the tutorial is now a must

Elden Ring: the tutorial is now a must

Elden Ring

One of the most praised aspects of Elden Ring is definitely its lack of any kind of player guidance. Users entering the Interregnum are in fact devoid of any indication and help. Definitely an interesting feature, which however also has a disadvantage, namely that of not facing the tutorial, as it is hidden.

To access the section that explains the basics of Elden Ring (complete with mini boss) it is in fact necessary to go down into a cave. Beyond some messages from users inviting players to come down, there is no indication of the presence of the tutorial. But now, thanks to patch 1.04 (which has fixed another important aspect of the game) it is absolutely impossible not to notice its presence.

Elden Ring continues to be a success on all fronts, with many copies sold and players who are now launching themselves into the most bizarre businesses ever. If you too have been captivated by the beauty of the game but are finding too many obstacles, we recommend that you take a look at our complete guide, which you can find at this address.

Elden Ring's 50-Hit Fake Wall Was a Glitch After All - and Now It's Gone

Elden Ring's 50-hit fake wall was seemingly a glitch all along, and has been removed in the latest patch.

If you don't remember, the mysterious wall was first discovered in March and shook the community as, while illusionary walls are nothing new to FromSoftware games, one that only disappears after 50 hits meant that practically any wall in the game could be hiding a completely new area.

This wall in Volcano Manor didn't appear to go anywhere exciting though, causing players to speculate if it was just an odd glitch, something FromSoftware has now effectively confirmed after the latest 1.04 patch turned it into a regular wall with no illusionary properties.

YouTuber Zullie the Witch returned to the wall after Elden Ring's latest patch was released and found that FromSoftware has quietly made it solid again.

The latest patch therefore marks the end of an era for one of Elden Ring's first, big strange secrets, and another may join it in obscurity soon. The Deathbed Smalls - a fancy pair of underwear only obtainable through hacking - were discovered around the same time but are now being used by trolls to soft-ban players.

Elden Ring has dominated the gaming sphere since it launched in February and produced plenty of other bizarre stories though.

Players have discovered a way to make one of the game's toughest bosses defeat itself, a now-legendary player called Let Me Solo Her went viral after defeating Malenia for hundreds of other players, and someone has now beaten the game in under seven minutes.

In our 10/10 review, IGN said: 'Elden Ring is a massive iteration on what FromSoftware began with the Souls series, bringing its relentlessly challenging combat to an incredible open world that gives us the freedom to choose our own path.'
