Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree official artwork

It has taken an entire year for us to get here, but I'm happy to say that FromSoftware has now finally announced that Elden Ring's first (and hopefully not last) expansion Shadow of the Erdtree will be launching on June 21st. As you would expect, the expansion will bring with it a sizable new world to explore, a whole host of bosses and deformed monstrosities to fight against, a new storyline that is likely to bring up more questions than it answers, and naturally, a wide variety of new weapons, spells and equipment to mess around with.

The one bit of bad news is that the price tag is going to be a fair bit larger than any previous Souls DLC. To be more specific, even the basic version of Shadow of the Erdtree will set you back 40€, which is almost as much as the base game itself. Whether this is a simple price hike or if the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion will contain an absurdly large amount of content, that still remains to be seen. Personally, I really hope it's the latter as I certainly wouldn't mind losing another 100 hours or so to Elden Ring!

Whatever the case may be, you can check out what exactly Shadow of the Erdtree is going to be about, as well as what sort of enemies you'll be smashing your head against, through the trailer below. Have a gander:

Once FromSoftware announces anything major I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can keep an eye on any updates and teasers over at the official website. Enjoy!
