Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree PS5 PS4 PlayStation

Elden Ring players already know they're in for it when DLC Shadow of the Erdtree drops next month, on the 21st of June, on PS5 and PS4. Developer Fromsoftware has been cooking, going by what we've seen so far, and now the sadistic studio is teasing an enemy ripped straight from our most persistent Bloodborne nightmares.

On Twitter, publisher Bandai Namco shared an image of an enemy that immediately reminded us of Bloodborne's Winter Lanter enemies, who, just by looking at them, would cause an instant-death Frenzy meter to fill. Judging by its tattered cloak, spindly frame, and Lovecraftian visage, this will be a top-tier threat and the death of many an overconfident Tarnished. Learn from Miyazaki's earlier teachings and deal with these monsters from a range, preferably killing them with fire.

What do you think of whatever this thing is? Did Bloodboorne's Winter Lantern enemies permanently damage your gamer psyche? Let us know in the comments section below.
