It was an open secret. Elden Ring fans have been theorizing about an expansion since the game’s release. It took a year and a few days for it to FromSoftware say the words we all expected to read: are developing an expansion for Elden Ring.
Shadow of the ErdtreeThis is the name of the Elden Ring expansion that FromSoftware is working on. The translation could be something like The Shadow of the Golden Tree. The tweet doesn’t share any more information: no release date, no details about the story… However, it remains to be seen what theories the Elden Ring historians and other lore experts come up with.
Rise, Tarnished, and let us walk a new path together.

Translation: Get up, Lightless, and let’s walk together on a new path. The next expansion for #ELDENRING Shadow of the Erdtree is currently in development. We hope you look forward to new adventures in the Middle Lands.
The image of the tweet shows large fields, spectral tombs, ruins, and a large dark tree in the background. The real question about the expansion is: will it be a continuation of the story after reaching the end?, or rather it will be another possible path on our way to the Elden Circle?
Elden Ring is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. While we wait for more information, you can take a look at our very complete guide to make your way in the Middle Lands more comfortable.
