Elden Ring: Shadows Deepen as “Shadow of the Erdtree” DLC Hype Explodes

The Elden Ring reign of terror continues. Players haven’t even fully explored the vast Lands Between, yet excitement for the upcoming DLC, “Shadow of the Erdtree,” is already scorching hot.

A Glimpse into the Unknown

The February trailer sent shivers down spines. A warped Erdtree, dripping magma and shrouded in mist, hinted at a darker, more brutal world. New enemies, from colossal knights to ethereal beings, promised fresh challenges.


Miyazaki’s Masterful Touch

Director Hidetaka Miyazaki, known for his cryptic teases, fueled the fire. He compared the DLC’s size to Liurnia of the Lakes, hinting at a vast new playground. Whispers of “a twisted mirror of the Lands Between” ignited imaginations.

Community Cauldron Boils

Theories and speculation run rampant. Who is the mysterious figure wielding a weapon from their own skull? Is the painting a clue to the DLC’s narrative? Players dissect every frame, piecing together the puzzle.

June Can’t Come Soon Enough for Elden Ring Community

The wait is agonizing. June 21st feels impossibly far. But the anticipation is a testament to Elden Ring’s enduring power. The Tarnished are hungry for more, and “Shadow of the Erdtree” seems poised to deliver a feast of nightmares and wonder.

Not familiar with Elden Ring?

Elden Ring, released in February 2022, shattered expectations. Developed by FromSoftware, the masters of challenging action RPGs like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, it presented a vast, open world steeped in rich lore crafted by fantasy legend George R.R. Martin. Players, known as Tarnished, explored a decaying kingdom, battling formidable foes and unraveling mysteries, all while grappling with Miyazaki’s signature brutal difficulty. The result? Critical acclaim, record sales, and a community still enthralled by its secrets. I, for one, am glad that epics are making a comeback. Now, “Shadow of the Erdtree” promises to expand upon that captivating foundation, pushing the boundaries of the Lands Between and plunging deeper into its darkness.
