Patch number 1.03 aims to improve game stability, slightly balance combat, and add content such as new NPCs and quests. Of course, to keep playing Ring of Elden online, you will need to upgrade to version 1.03.

One of the new features that promises to make a huge difference when playing the game is the ability to save the name and location of a specific NPC directly on the map. Additionally, new background music has been added to the open world.
