Is there any Elden Ring update? Let’s find out
FromSoftware has provided an update on the progress of the highly-anticipated Elden Ring DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree, stating that development is “proceeding smoothly.” The success of Elden Ring, which has been one of the biggest game releases in recent years, has made the announcement of DLC a logical step for the developer. FromSoftware has a track record of creating acclaimed expansion packs for titles like the Dark Souls trilogy and Bloodborne.
Fans have been speculating about potential Elden Ring DLC since the early days of the game, and the announcement of Shadow of the Erdtree was met with great excitement. However, details about the DLC have been sparse, with only a single teaser released by FromSoftware thus far.
While a specific release date for the Elden Ring DLC has yet to be revealed, FromSoftware’s parent company, Kadokawa Corporation, mentioned in an earnings report that development is progressing smoothly. Additionally, the report touched on FromSoftware’s upcoming game, Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, noting a strong start in sales with expectations of further growth during the holiday season.
While it’s uncertain when fans can expect a substantial update on the Elden Ring DLC, there’s speculation that it may be showcased at The Game Awards 2023. FromSoftware has a history of working closely with The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley, using the event to reveal major game announcements in the past. However, nothing has been confirmed yet, so fans will need to keep an eye out for updates.
When the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is showcased, fans will be eager to learn its release date. While a release before the end of the year is possible but unlikely, it’s more probable that the DLC will launch sometime in 2024. Fans will have to stay tuned for further information on this highly-anticipated expansion.
