Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree DLC expansion announced
Elden Ring’s first DLC expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, is finally confirmed to be in development at FromSoftware.
After a year of hope and speculation, FromSoftware have announced that Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree, the game’s first DLC expansion, is officially in development.
It’s been a year since Elden Ring launched and players explored The Lands Between for the first time. Typically, FromSoftware’s DLC expansions are just as well-received as the mainline games, so players felt it was just a matter of time before new single-player content would be announced.
Tweeting on February 28, almost exactly a year after launch, FromSoftware confirmed that “an upcoming expansion for Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree, is currently in development. We hope you look forward to new adventures in the Lands Between.”
There’s no sign of a release date yet, as it’s only confirmed to be “in development” at this stage. However, they said that “As with the main story, we plan to distribute it on PlayStation 4 / PlayStation 5 / Xbox One / Xbox Series X|S / Steam.”
The devs haven’t revealed much about Shadow of the Erdtree other than the logo and concept art from the DLC. This shows a blonde character riding a Spirit Steed that could be Torrent through a spectral graveyard with ruins and a dying Erdtree in the background.
Shadow of the Erdree will be Elden Ring’s first single-player expansion, with the multiplayer Colosseum update arriving back in December 2022. How much content Shadow of the Erdtree will bring remains to be seen, but expect to visit unseen locations in the Land Between while fighting horrifying new enemies and bosses.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated with all things Shadow of the Erdtree as the Elden Ring DLC approaches, but you can check out everything we know about some of 2023’s biggest releases in the meantime:
