Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree Has A Release Date Along With A Gameplay Trailer And Collector’s Edition

EPIC!

Bandai Namco and FromSoftware just lifted the lid on the very first gameplay trailer for Elden Ring’s big DLC expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, and as expected (and awkwardly leaked just prior), we also finally got word of the DLC’s release date along with some shiny new editions of the game.

Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree is launching on June 21st, 2024 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC and will be available either as standalone digital DLC, a complete Shadow of the Erdtree Edition including the full base game or a brand-new Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree Collector’s Edition which features a voucher code for the DLC, hardcover artbook and a 46CM statue of Messmer the Impaler.

The edition already looks to have sold out on Bandai Namco’s online store but local pre-orders have now become available. Find out more about those here.

  • ELDEN RING Shadow of the Erdtree Collector’s Edition – includes a single voucher code of the selected platform for the ELDEN RING Shadow of the Erdtree expansion and comes with a (46cm) statue of “Messmer the Impaler,” 40-page physical art book, and digital soundtrack.

The trailer itself is appropriately epic and gives us a look at new vistas, new characters and of course some awe-inspiring new enemies and bosses to conquer (or be conquered by) including Messmer themselves.

The Shadow of the Erdtree expansion will feature an all-new story set in the Land of Shadow that FromSoft promises is imbued with mystery, perilous dungeons, and new enemies, weapons and equipment. Players can expect to discover uncharted territories, face formidable adversaries, and revel in that sweet, satisfying triumph of victory that makes these games so compelling.

We gave Elden Ring a huge 9.5/10 when it first launched in 2022, saying, “While it feels like the impact of Breath of the Wild is waning as the open world genre starts to stagnate again, Elden Ring stands out as not only an achievement in FromSoftware’s hall of fame, but also as an open-world RPG. Elden Ring is without a doubt, FromSoft’s most ambitious undertaking yet, and like Dark Souls before it, I believe it will leave a permanent mark on both the open-world genre and the games industry in general.”
