The 2022 Game of the Year and FromSoftware’s most successful title to date, Elden Ring, is getting an expansion titled Shadow of the Erdtree.
The announcement was made via a tweet on the Official Elden Ring account. “Rise, Tarnished, and let us walk a new path together.” The tweet read, “An upcoming expansion for Elden Ring, Shadow of the Erdtree, is currently in development. We hope you look forward to new adventures in the Lands Between.”
Along with the tweet was an artwork showing off what looks to be a woman clad in white with long blonde hair, atop a mount amidst a desolate landscape. In the distance is what seems to be the silhouette of the Erdtree.
FromSoftware has confirmed the DLC will be coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Steam.
The action RPG was released on February 25, 2022, to critical acclaim. It is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki with worldbuilding delivered by fantasy writer George R. R. Martin, the author of A Song of Ice and Fire. It sold over 20 million copies in its first year of release.
