Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree DLC Release Date Revealed by FromSoftware

 

As shown in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree official gameplay reveal trailer, the DLC will be released on June 21, 2024. Gamers can pre-order the DLC on their respective platforms, as it will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree is FromSoftware's largest expansion ever. Much like the story of the base game, the DLC also has equal involvement from popular Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire) writer, George R.R Martin. That said, the DLC will likely focus on Miquella's storyline, the only Demigod from the universe that players did not get to fight in the base game. 

 

He can be found in Mohg's boss's room in the ruined lands of the Mohgwyn Palace. The trailer showcases the egg in which he is entrapped as he is suffering from the rotten curse of being trapped in the body of a perpetually young child. 

 

From the trailer, one can assume that gamers can explore Miquella's dream world, where he is ruling the dream kingdom. This DLC might draw similar inspirations from Dark Souls' Painted Worlds of Ariamis and Ariandel expansions, where gamers are sent to a completely different world within the Souls universe.

 

What to Expect from Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree DLC?

 

According to Eurogamer's report, Hidetaka Miyazaki, the creator of the Soulsborne universe, has shared much on the DLC and what elements it may bring to the fans. One can expect a new surface area much larger than the map size of Limgrave, the default landmass in the base game. Moreover, the DLC will bring over 10 boss fights alongside eight new weapon categories. 

 

With the expansion, gamers can also look forward to new field areas, legacy, and smaller dungeons. Much like any Souls DLC, Elden Ring's expansion will also introduce a new infamous swamp area, which will likely be much more challenging.  Miyazaki has also stated that the field and dungeons will be more connected for a seamless traversal.
