When you reload your save, your character will repeatedly fall to their death. Elden Ring is a big game, and some players have reported losing as much as 100 hours of gameplay in this way.
If all of this sounds familiar, it’s because FromSoftware was recently forced to disable Dark Souls 3’s multiplayer features after a hacker within the game that allowed them to execute code remotely. The studio has been working to .
FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have yet to comment on the exploit. We’ll update this article when they say something on the matter. In the meantime, your best bet is to play offline. Failing that, you’ll want to regularly backup your save in case someone uses the exploit on one of your characters. In the worst-case scenario, it’s possible to salvage a save, but the process isn't easy. You need to press Alt F4 before your character dies, and then quickly fast travel to a Site of Grace when you reload the game.

This week, Google announced that expiration dates for access to files is rolling out now.
When sharing files, a new option appears on the list of people with access. It shows a small clock icon to the right of an individual’s name. Selecting that clock brings up a selection of times for file access to last, which you’re able to set manually if 7 or 30 days isn’t a fit.
Here is Google’s example:
For instance, imagine your business hires an outside contractor for a project lasting three months. To complete the job, that contractor needs to view a spreadsheet containing the contact information of your employees. Following this launch, you’ll be able to share your employee list in Sheets with the contractor, give them view access only, and set that access to expire when their contract does (in three months). If the contractor attempts to open the spreadsheet after the expiration date has passed, they’ll be denied access.
Although it has already started rolling out, you may not see the feature until late in the second quarter of 2016. Google says it is it is gradually rolling out the feature to all users over the course of 2-3 months.
