Elden Ring PC patch 1.02.1 causes mouse sensitivity issues for players

Elden Ring PC patch 1.02.1 has found players experiencing mouse sensitivity issues.

Elden Ring received a new PC patch detailed as 1.02.1, on launch week, and players have taken to the official Steam forum to complain. Originally brought to our attention by Vantezzle on Twitter (Thanks, Layla!), they note that they’re a physically disabled player and that Elden Ring was playable at launch and were “extremely happy” with it.

With the new patch, “Mouse operation improved” has been noted as a fix in the official patch notes from From Software. However, players are stating that Elden Ring is now a struggle to play in terms of controlling with a mouse. Vantezzle details that it is “completely unplayable” due to their condition with a 180-degree turn now taking 30 seconds with the mouse sensitivity set to maximum.

One user notes that the game is now “nearly unplayable” while another hopes it’s just an oversight, although if not then they suggest for a mod to “undo [From Software’s] ‘improvement'”

Elden Ring launched with a slew of 10/10 reviews earlier this week, and while not much was detailed about accessibility, there does appear to be some improvements from past From Software games available. Hopefully From Software notices the concerns from this new patch and issues a fix, but for now there’s no official word.

Elden Ring is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.
