"Rise, Tarnished, and let us walk a new path together," the creator declared back then. "A new addition for Elden Ring, Shadow of the Erdtree, is presently in development. We hope you are looking forward to fresh experiences in the Lands Between.

The setting and main characters of Shadow of the Erdtree were teased in a single piece of artwork revealed at the DLC's announcement.

In the expansion, players will trail Miquella into the Land of Shadow, where they will encounter a difficult new foe: Messmer the Impaler, a fearsome enemy with a close link to Miquella and Malenia.
