Players of Dark Souls 3 will be getting a fresh update on February 8. It’s meant to fix several glitches that players were abusing in PvP battles. This way, the matches will be more balanced and fair. One more standout change is invading other players. If your invasion target is in a boss fight, you won’t be able to attack. This is a very welcome change, since getting invaded during a boss battle meant your absolute, certain and undignified demise.
