Elden Ring artwork for the first expansion - Shadow of the Erdtree

[Update]: Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdtree expansion is launching on June 21st with a rather large price tag.

Bandai Namco recently announced that Elden Ring has managed to sell a whopping 20 million copies worldwide! Given its staggering level of successes, it really shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to hear that Bandai Namco and FromSoftware are not quite done with the Lands Between.

And so, through an incredibly brief Tweet, Bandai Namco has now unveiled Elden Ring's very first expansion - Shadow of the Erdtree. The teaser images features a blonde woman riding through a ghostly landscape towards what looks like a dying Erdtree. What exactly it all means, I'm afraid I have no idea, but I'm sure it'll involve a whole lot of suffering followed by brief yet exhilarating moments of pure elation!

I'd love to tell you more, especially when it comes to the gameplay improvements or potential tweaks, but I'm afraid nothing has been revealed just yet. All I can tell you for certain is that Shadow of the Erdtree will be launching for all versions of Elden Ring: PC, PlayStation 4 & 5, and Xbox One & Series X|S.

Once more information becomes available, ideally alongside a gameplay trailer, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, have fun doing what the Souls community does best - endlessly speculating over a single bit of concept art!
