They have just shown us, for the first time, the first expansion that will come to Elden Ring after its release two years ago. Called Shadow of the Erdtree this is everything we know as of today.


The Land of Shadows. A place darkened by the Erdtree.

Where the goddess Marika first set foot.

A land purged in an unknown battle.

Set ablaze by Messmer’s flame.

It was to this land that Miquella departed.

Stripping herself of her flesh, her strength, her lineage.

Of everything Golden.

And now Miquella awaits the return of her fiancé, Sir.

This is how FromSoftware announces the arrival of the Elden Ring DLC. We don’t know how to interpret the text, although many speculate that we will have to fight against Miquella, Malenia’s brother.

In all of this, a new final boss named Mesmer the Impaler appears, who looks like he’s going to kill us several times before we can defeat him. But that’s the fun of these games: enjoying dying.

The game will be released on June 21, 2024 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC at a price of 39.99 euros on all platforms. The expansion can already be pre-ordered at all stores and the official Bandai Namco website.
