The new expansion will take players to the “Realm of Shadow,” a mysterious and dark new area in the Elden Ring universe. The story trailer, released today, showcases stunning visuals and hints at the challenging adventures awaiting players in this new territory. The trailer introduces new enemies, including a giant burning Wicker Man, a horn-headed lion-like creature with lightning powers, and a worm-like monster capable of swallowing players whole.

Developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco, Shadow of the Erdtree promises to bring fresh content and experiences to the game. Players will encounter new locales, devious bosses, and expanded combat options. The protagonist is seen using a combination of kicks in hand-to-hand combat and even sprouts wings for aerial attacks. These additions aim to enrich the already intricate gameplay that Elden Ring is known for.

The expansion will delve deeper into the lore of the Elden Ring universe, focusing on the darker aspects of its story. Players will navigate through the Land of Shadow, uncovering secrets and facing formidable challenges. Bandai Namco has revealed that the expansion will cost $40, with pre-orders now open. Special editions include an artbook, a soundtrack, and a figure of Messmer the Impaler, the expansion’s main antagonist.
