The official Twitter accounts for FromSoftware and Elden Ring have confirmed that an upcoming expansion titled “Shadow of the Erdtree” is currently in development with the message "Rise, Tarnished, and let us walk a new path together". It is speculated that the new DLC will be available to play on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via STEAM.
After months of speculation, further fueled by FromSoftware's teasers that more content for Elden Ring is coming soon, we can finally rejoice that a DLC for the game is on its way. It's a fitting time for the announcement, especially given that it was revealed not shortly after Elden Ring's 1 year anniversary.
In addition to the message, a teaser image was released for the expansion of a character, who is speculated but not yet confirmed to be Miquella, riding on a horse. A DLC that centers around Miquella would be amazing. We know of Miquella from our battle with Mohg, from our talks with others characters in the game, and our journey into Miquella's Haligtree, where his sister Malenia resides.
If we do have to fight Miquella, I can only imagine the challenge that lies ahead of us, because he is said to be even more fearsome than his sister, who proved to be one of the most formidable bosses in the game.
Elden Ring is one of the best games I've ever played, and it is the best game to release in 2022, so I can't wait to see what FromSoft have in store for us in the near future with the upcoming DLC! As new details about the Elden Ring DLC are revealed, I will update this post, so stay tuned for more.
