Since “Elden Ring” was released, the landscape has gradually changed. The changes happened without that Bandai Namco shared this with the community. YouTuber Illusory Wall worked out which “secret” changes were introduced in the last updates in the following video:
So every region of the map is affected by cartographic changes. In some regions it is just a missing road or ruin, in other places, for example, damage and a moat in front of a castle have been added. In addition, numerous visual effects were added so that locations and symbols of the regions can be better perceived. During Bandai Namco Most of the gameplay changes and bug fixes were documented in the patch notes, but the cartographic adjustments went completely unmentioned.
