Quite an obvious choice for the game of the week - Elden Ring. Elden Ring won Game of the Year at the 23rd annual Game Developer Choice Awards, but it's not the reason why we've included it here. This week, Bandai Namco Entertainment finally announced an anticipated Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. It will send the players to a completely new location - Land of Shadow, which promises to be a challenging adventure.

It's Not Your Average Elden Ring

FromSoftware invites you to walk in the footsteps of Empyrean Miquella, a shrouded figure from the base game. The upcoming DLC for Elden Ring whisks you away to the Land of Shadow, "a place obscured by the Erdtree" where the legendary goddess Marika first made her mark. But beware, you're not alone on this enigmatic journey. Other characters, driven by "ulterior motives," will shadow your path.

Miyazaki, the mastermind behind Elden Ring, compares your pursuit of Miquella to the guidance offered by Sites of Grace in the Lands Between. But will these cryptic echoes lead you to salvation or something altogether different? Only the depths of the Land of Shadow hold the answer.

Shadow of the Erdtree - What's New?

Prepare to venture beyond the familiar Golden Lands, for Elden Ring's expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, beckons with a vast new world. Brace yourselves for:

Thrilling Boss Battles: New foes of all shapes and sizes await, including 10 fearsome bosses. From towering behemoths to nimble adversaries, each encounter promises a unique test of your combat prowess.

Fresh Enemy Types: Prepare to adapt your strategies as you encounter entirely new breeds of enemies, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.

Unravelling: Expand your arsenal with an array of powerful weapons, armor, and other equipment, each imbued with the secrets of the Land of Shadow.

Master New Combat Styles: Unleash your inner Sekiro with a powerful flying kick and explore eight new weapon categories. Embrace duelling shields and even soar through the air like Crucible Knights with their iconic wings!

Bottom Line

Shadow Of The Erdtree is the strong contender for the best DLC of 2024. Elden Ring was a massive success, garnering critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase. Shadow of the Erdtree builds upon this established world, offering both familiarity and thrilling novelty. New weapons like dueling shields and flying wings, eight new weapon categories, and even hand-to-hand combat options broaden the player's combat repertoire and potentially shake up established strategies.

Shadow of the Erdtree - Pre-Order New

Shadow of the Erdtree is now available for pre-order on the following platforms:
