Watch The Glorious Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree Story Trailer Here

Rooting for this.

It’s been a long time coming but Elden Ring’s big new Shadow of the Erdtree expansion is nearly upon us, dropping on June 21st for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC, and in the lead-up FromSoftware and Bandai Namco have dropped a glorious new story trailer to get fans ready for what’s been cooking over the last couple of years.

The trailer is appropriately epic and, in true FromSoft fashion, almost completely incomprehensible. It foreshadows players’ journey to the Land of Shadow, guided by Empyrean Miquella, but beyond that I think I’m happy just to gaze at the sumptuous presentation of it all.

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.”
