The wait for Elden Ring's eagerly anticipated Shadow of the Erdtree expansion has been so torturous we've almost lost our humanity. Still, at long last, a brief glimmer of hope emerges from the infinite depths of Steam's backend. Elden Ring YouTuber Ziostorm posted some verifiable findings to Twitter, showing that a DLC package has been added to the game's backend, the first time such an event has occurred since the game launched almost two years ago.
We should temper our expectations, as we've all been burned before, and the Elden Ring community resorted to arcane measures ahead of 2023's The Game Awards to no avail. And yet, masochists that we are, something feels different this time. The stars may still align with our previous reporting when, in December, we brought you word of a series of gaudy third-party controllers that predicted a February release for Shadow of the Erdtree.
