What is in the new Elden Ring DLC?
Elden Ring DLC, titled “Shadow of the Erdtree” will probably offer players a host of new features, including new enemies, weapons, areas, bosses, NPCs, and gameplay mechanics. This new content has expanded the game’s already massive world, offering players even more opportunities to explore and discover.
The only information available about the expansion comes from a single image, which features the game’s main setting, the Erdtree, in a damaged state. This suggests that the DLC takes place after the game’s main storyline. The landscape in the image includes ruins and ghostly gravestones. A lone figure, who may be the player character, is seen riding a horned horse named Torrent while wearing white clothing. It’s unclear whether this figure is an NPC or a player character with a customized appearance.
As we learned in the DLCs of FromSoftware’s last big hit, Dark Souls III, it is safe to predict that Elden Ring DLC will be almost as big as a new game. You may see what we expect from the new Elden Ring DLC below.
New enemies to defeat
The DLC might introduce players to several new enemies, each with its own unique strengths and weaknesses. These enemies are more challenging than those in the base game, requiring players to adapt their strategies and skills in order to overcome them.
Areas to discover
The new Elden Ring DLC is expected to introduce players to several new areas, each with its own unique challenges and secrets.
When we looked at Dark Souls’ Ringed City DLC, while it had great details in terms of the story, as well as 4 sub-areas and brand-new bosses, its map took our minds away.
Ashes of Ariandel, on the other hand, is beyond telling. The visuals, map design, Gael fight, and the atmosphere of the DLC added a whole new dimension to the game.
Get ready to break controllers
The DLC surely is going to offer players several new bosses to defeat, each more challenging than the last. These bosses will not be only powerful but also visually impressive, with incredible designs and animations.
Friends to meet in the harsh lands of Elden Ring
The new Elden Ring DLC will introduce players to several new NPCs, each with its own unique backstory and personality. These NPCs in FromSoftware’s games offer new quests and missions, as well as provide valuable information and lore about the game’s world and characters.
When is the new Elden Ring DLC going out?
Unfortunately, there is no information available regarding the release date of Shadow of the Erdtree at this time. Nonetheless, it is reassuring to know that FromSoftware is currently developing DLC for Elden Ring, which aligns with what many fans have been anticipating.
How much will the new Elden Ring DLC be?
The downloadable content (DLC) is categorized as an “expansion,” which generally implies a more significant addition of content compared to smaller DLCs. It remains to be seen whether this particular expansion, titled “Shadow of the Erdtree,” will be priced at $40 or not.
