Elden Ring's first and only expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, is almost upon us, with the eagerly-anticipated offering available on PS5 and PS4 on 21st June. To properly set the stage, Bandai Namco and FromSoftware have released a trailer that sets the stage for the journey to come, without spoilers, in a reasonably concise fashion.

Set in a broken age, the story of Elden Ring is a tale of demigods fighting over the scraps that remain and the inevitable stagnation caused by such a stalemate. As a Tarnished, one banished from The Lands Between long ago, you are tasked with gathering the shards of the titular Elden Ring. Over the course of this dark odyssey, a Tarnished becoming powerful enough to crown themselves as Elden Lord is the only way to break this bleak cycle, one way or another.

Are you among the minority of Elden Ring players ready to jump straight into Shadow of the Erdtree? Are you starting this journey fresh, or do you have unfinished business in The Lands Between? Let us know in the comments section below.
