He still does not have a date or specific details of his proposal, but it serves to fan the flame of the fans.
After selling 20 million copies in just one year, an unprecedented milestone for a game in the Souls series and for the Bandai Namco catalog in general, it was logical to expect new playable content for Elden Ring that would go beyond small updates. That is why, somewhat unexpectedly, FromSoftware has just announced the launch of Shadow of the Erdtree, the first major content expansion for Elden Ring. Games in the Souls series have previously received DLC of this style, so it was a matter of time.
At the moment there are not too many details about this Elden Ring content expansion, but we know that the FromSoftware team is already working on it, so could arrive in the next few months. Surely we will have to wait for some important event this summer to see this expansion in motion for the first time, perhaps the Summer Game Fest 2023, to maintain the tradition.
We already know the first DLC of Elden Ring
“Rise up, Lightless, and let us walk together on a new path. A next expansion for Elden Ring is currently in development, Shadow of the Erdtree. We hope you are looking forward to living new adventures in Intermediate Lands”, writes FromSoftware in a tweet with which he surprised just a few minutes ago. At the moment he does not have more details about his proposal, release date or trailer, so it has only been shared a new image of the game that accompanies this message.
Rise, Tarnished, and let us walk a new path together.

In this new image of the Elden Ring we can see a field of golden grasses that resemble our wheat, thick with mist, with ruins stretching to the horizon. In the background you can see the Golden Tree, consumed, without leaves or shine. The sky is dark and ocher tones. It’s not too clear what this expansion will be about, but from the looks of it, could expand the game’s endgame content.
Eldden Ring is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC since last 2022, and will soon expand his experience with this DLC known as Shadow of the Erdtree. At the same time, the Japanese team is also working on Armored Core 6, which will also hit stores soon.
