New PvP Focused Dark Souls 3 Patch Drops Next Week

A new Dark Souls 3 patch has been announced by From Software which will be releasing next week on 8th February for all platforms.

The new Dark Souls 3 patch is mainly focused towards the PvP aspect of the game, fixing some bugs as well as tweaking a couple of things here and there to balance things out.

Perhaps the biggest fix when it comes to PvP is the removal of player invasion while the host player is in a boss battle. Previously, due to this issue, the player fighting the boss would have a really tough time when another player would invade their game.

After the patch is deployed, this shouldn’t be an issue any more and players will only have to deal with one enemy at a time.

The full list of the latest Dark Souls 3 patch notes states:

Fixed issue where a player could invade another player during a boss battle.
Fixed issue where an enchantment could be applied to weapons which normally could not be enchanted.
Fixed issue where, when items are used while casting magic, display glitches could occasionally occur.
Fixed issue where it was possible to cancel immediately into a second magic spell after casting the first one.
Fixed issue where the first part of a skill action could be skipped.
Fixed issue where a single item could be used indefinitely.

Before the patch is deployed next week, servers will go down for maintenance for a short while. The maintenance time will be different for all platforms and would last around 2 hours (except for Xbox One) provided there are no other issues.

According to From Software, the PC servers will be down from 9AM till 11AM, PS4 ones from 2AM to 4AM while the Xbox One servers will need maintenance from 2AM till 8AM. All times are CST and the patch should be ready to download as soon as the maintenance is over.

Final DLC for Dark Souls 3 is also on the way, titled The Ringed City, it will be available on 28th March.
