Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree Is Out Tomorrow So Here’s When It Goes Live In Australia And New Zealand

Give me a home among the Erdtree.

Elden Ring’s huge Shadow of the Erdtree DLC expansion is nearly upon us, launching tomorrow June 21st for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.

It’ll be a huge new chunk of content for fans to play through, with all-new areas to explore, enemies and bosses to fight, lore to uncover, weapons and gear to acquire and likely plenty of surprises.

To help manage excitement, Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have highlighted the exact times across the globe that players on different platforms can start their journeys in The Land of Shadow, including those of us in Australia and our neighbours in New Zealand.

You can consult our bargain guide here if you’re planning on picking up a physical copy, which will naturally be available whenever your local shop opens, and also includes the base game.

We scored the expansion a huge 10/10 in our review, with Harry saying, “Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree is yet another masterpiece by FROMSOFTWARE. It doubles down on all of the best parts of Elden Ring and bolsters them through an inviting new world, an engaging story, and a ridiculously moreish gameplay loop. It won’t change your mind on Elden Ring if it never clicked for you, but will undoubtedly wow you if it did.”
