Apart from the newly added PvP colosseums, Elden Ring has been comparatively quiet after promoting a gazillion copies and successful each sport of the 12 months award in existence (apart from the coveted RPS one.) Followers have been clamouring for DLC and also you’d anticipate a giant enlargement announcement to coincide with the sport’s first anniversary – February twenty fifth – however developer FromSoftware selected to have fun the mega-RPG’s birthday three days later – this morning. In a Twitter put up, FromSoftware introduced Elden Ring’s first enlargement referred to as Shadow Of The Erdtree.

FromSoft’s announcement says the enlargement is “at the moment in growth,” so, no launch date but. “In growth” all the time feels like advertising communicate for “buckle up,” however a launch later this 12 months, maybe on the Keighley awards, isn’t out of the query.

FromSoft didn’t elaborate on the enlargement, however a lovely idea artwork for the Shadow Of The Erdtree raises a couple of questions. Is that Miquella within the nook, using our trusty steed Torrent? Does that imply this enlargement is about in a dream realm? Or is it a brand new landmass? And what’s up with that tree dripping gold? Or is it honey? I’m positive extra devoted followers might be theorising about lore implications for the following few weeks and even months. I doubt I may observe each thread, however I’m excited to see extra twisted FromSoft bosses, whatever the context.

The studio have seemingly been exhausting at work on the enlargement for the final 12 months, however the Elden Ring neighborhood has stored itself entertained within the interim. Gamers have made the already brutal sport even more durable by taking part in the it with a drawing pill, or most impressively, beating two simultaneous playthroughs utilizing one controller and one… dance mat? An cute canine additionally joined the enjoyable, saving its proprietor’s life (in a sport of Elden Ring, in fact.)

The Shadow Of The Erdtree enlargement will launch in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later, however till then Elden Ring is offered on Steam for £50/$60/€60.
