Dark Souls III patch 1.13 goes live today for PlayStation 4, and Windows. The Xbox One patch will be ready on April 14th (Friday). The patch focuses mainly on the PvP mode. There is a new flat PvP arena in the Undead Match PvP called Round Plaza. You can now summon a total of two Darkmoon Blades, or Blue Sentinels, and when a white phantom dies during invasion the host won’t be able to summon others for a set amount of time.

There are new values for matchmaking when summoning other players.

Summons
(First value being upper limit, second being lower limit)

  • Sign summons – SL + 10 + ( SL * 0.1 ) / SL – 10 – ( SL * 0.1 )
  • Way of the Blue – SL + 15 + ( SL * 0.1 ) / SL – 15 – ( SL * 0.1 )

Invasions

  • Dark Spirit – SL + 20 + ( SL * 0.1 ) / SL – ( SL * 0.1 )
  • Mound Maker – SL + 20 + ( SL * 0.15 ) / SL – ( SL * 0.1 )
