Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree is real and the trailer drops today

After weeks of rumors that the long-awaited Shadow of the Erdtree DLC for Elden Ring might come out this month, followed by rumors that, no, actually it wouldn’t despite the flurry of activity in the Steam store’s back end sending waves of disappointment across ER’s fanbase, Bandai Namco have now popped up and said there will be a gameplay trailer for Shadow of the Erdtree and it’s coming today.

Expected to last around three minutes the YouTube Premiere will count down for half an hour before the action starts on the hour, building tension and making it a bit like New Year’s Eve.

What we get after that is anybody’s guess, but ours is that what we see from FromSoftware today will be spectacular. We have waited a long time for this, almost two years since the game first came out so there is no room for letdowns here.

What will be in the Shadow of the Erdtree trailer?

At this stage who knows, but if there are no new enemies and weapons, even if only a glimpse would be a surprise. The main thing we are hoping for is a narrowing down of the release date. A firm date might be asking too much but an indication of this year or next is at least something.

Update: Rumors are now abound that we may see a launch date of June this year.
