Additionally, we now know that the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC will be retailing for $40 when it releases on June 21. There's even a hefty collector's edition, which you can see at the very end of the new trailer just above, which boasts a complete statue of Miquella.

The DLC has been an incredibly long time coming for Elden Ring fans, who have been waiting for more information since the DLC was announced all the way back in February 2023. The last month or so has brought even more anticipation than usual, thanks to a mysterious number of Steam backend updates for the RPG, which left users with more questions than answers. Finally, all this speculation has been put to bed.
