Elden Ring Patch 1.04 introduces Turn Camera Auto Rotate feature

Ben Bayliss2 minute read

A new Elden Ring patch 1.04 has landed and there are a few improvements that could be useful for accessibility, including a new auto rotate function.

In a new Elden Ring patch 1.04, all available platforms will see a lot of balance adjustments to weapons and spells. Additionally, in the official patch notes one of the major changes listed is a new option that has been added called “Turn Camera Auto Rotate Function”. Players will likely find this in the Settings menu.

There are also bug fixes that have been applied to the game, such as one that prevented consecutive attacks if dual-wielding a thrusting sword. There’s also a bug that caused the default Weapon Skill key to not be set on PC builds only.

Incorrect sounds would also be played under certain circumstances, but this is another fix, and there’s also a “Text fit” bug fix which isn’t wonderfully explained. My assumption is that some text elements went out of their boundaries but have been fixed up, which could certainly help with legibility if the text was against conflicting backgrounds instead of the boxes.

Elden Ring recently got a 1.03.1 update that introduced the feature to record icon and NPC names on the map.
