Elden Ring’s ‘Shadow Of The Erdtree’ DLC Expansion Is Officially Announced
I was pondering when Elden Ring would start discussing the game’s ostensibly inevitable DLC plans just a few days ago because it was the game’s one-year anniversary and it had sold 20 million copies.
It seems that one year and three days was the magic figure.
In a recent update on social media, FromSoftware has just revealed Shadow of the Erdtree, the DLC for Elden Ring:
One of the most cherished games of the modern period is Elden Ring, which dominated the gaming industry upon release and won countless awards by the end of 2022.
Supporters have been clamouring for more, and publisher FromSoftware has now delivered some important information.
The hype for Elden Ring has been building since its announcement at E3 2019. Fans of FromSoftware, the developers behind games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, have been eagerly waiting for any news regarding the upcoming action RPG. And finally, the news has arrived: Elden Ring DLC Shadow of the Erdtree has been revealed.
What is Elden Ring?
For those unfamiliar with Elden Ring, it is an upcoming action RPG developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is being directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, who is known for his work on the Soulsborne series. Elden Ring takes place in a world created by Miyazaki and bestselling author George R. R. Martin, known for his work on the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
The game promises to be a sprawling open-world adventure with the challenging gameplay and intricate storytelling that fans have come to expect from FromSoftware. The game’s lore centers around the Elden Ring, a mystical object that has been shattered, and the player must collect the pieces to restore it.
What is the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC?
The Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is the first piece of downloadable content that has been announced for Elden Ring. The DLC will feature a new area to explore, new enemies to face, and new bosses to defeat. According to the announcement, the DLC will be “a new chapter in the saga of Elden Ring, featuring an all-new story and characters.”
The DLC’s name, Shadow of the Erdtree, is likely a reference to the Erdtree, a massive tree that is central to the game’s lore. The Erdtree is said to be the source of all life in the world of Elden Ring, and its destruction has led to chaos and conflict.
What can we expect from the DLC?
While there are no specifics on what the DLC will include, fans can expect more of the challenging gameplay and intricate storytelling that Elden Ring promises. FromSoftware is known for their ability to create immersive worlds filled with secrets and lore, and the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is likely to add even more depth to the game.
In addition to the new area and enemies, the DLC may also introduce new mechanics or weapons for players to use. FromSoftware has a history of adding new and innovative gameplay mechanics with their DLCs, such as the Ashes of Ariandel DLC for Dark Souls III, which added a PvP arena.
When will the DLC be released?
There is no official release date for the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC yet. However, FromSoftware has stated that the DLC will be released after the game’s launch. Elden Ring is currently set to release on February 25, 2022, so fans can likely expect the DLC sometime later in 2022.
In conclusion, the announcement of the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC has added even more excitement to the already highly anticipated Elden Ring. FromSoftware is known for their ability to create immersive and challenging gameplay experiences, and the DLC is likely to add even more depth to the game. Fans can’t wait to explore the new area, face the new enemies, and uncover the new story and lore that the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC promises to offer.
