Rise, Tarnished, we bring you fresh word from The Lands Between. To mark the first anniversary of Elden Ring's launch, Bandai Namco is holding a special celebration in Stockholm, Sweden, on 25th February, and is broadcasting the event via Twitch to the rest of the world.
Featuring a live show, giveaways, contests, prizes, drinks, cosplay, and PvP, it all sounds well and good for those guided by Grace who will attend in person. But for those of us cursed to go Hollow at home, we have but one burning question: DLC when?
To be clear, Bandai Namco has never promised additional Elden Ring content, but c'mon. A very close contender for our own Game of the Year, it would be surprising if we did not see additional support for Elden Ring given its massive popularity, not to mention the evidence gleaned from the game's files.
Will you be tuning in to the Elden Ring Anniversary Livestream? Are you keeping your expectations in check? Speculate wildly in the comments section below.
Give us that GOTY worthy expansion. Yeah i said GOTY worthy as From make some of the best expansions out there that usually surpass the base game.
@Grimwood warning heavy sarcasm alert (or irony.) Yes we want more of the same re-used assets left from other games,more chalice type dungeons and loads more repetative enemy patterns and throw in some piss poor networking and eye bleeding frame rates please..i'll buy it no matter what because i'm a from fanboy..
Cool, no invitation required? Maybe I should check it out in person, within walking distance after all.
Fromsoftware, will bring us a good meaty expansion .Awesome...
@Grimwood What? What makes you think this is what From Soft fans expect or want? So far, their DLCs have been exceptional.
So realistically what are we looking at here? Will this likely just be a celebratory show for all of it's rewards or would they not do this without dlc to announce?
For a lot of games I'd just guess "PS5" version but I already own the actual PS5 version on disc so I doubt it's anything like HDR, resolution or frame rate improvements.
I put 305 hours into the game last year, couldn't beat the final boss 2nd form or Malenia and her nutty bloom attack, but I'm not sure how much more I'd pay for more. $20 or $30 I'd do, but not 1 of those Destiny 2 things where it's $60+$40 for the season pass so another $100.
Don't do twitch but if PS wants to live stream it I'd tune in for the chat. Though not if it's an all day party thing. Maybe I'll just sit this one out and wait for the trailer.🤷
By the sound of it, I’ll lower my expectations to -1.
This doesn’t look like the type of event where they could drop the bomb.
I’ll celebrate by realizing I’ve been playing this game for an entire year now, accumulating a total of 900 hours split between 3 characters.
And then you have games sold at 70 bucks that last 6 hours.
Well, they are hopeful they might get similar DLC to DS, DS3 and Bloodborne. An extra 20-30 hours of entirely new areas developed post-release and featuring some of the most iconic bosses. Usually for around £20.
I want DLC and yet it feels ridiculously greedy to expect DLC for a game that is 4-5 times the size of most $60 games.
How insatiable is our appetite?
I doubt they'll be revealing any DLC here, better off saved for E3.
Bandai Namco should still have a presence there, despite the big 3 not being there.
