Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree story

In Shadow of the Erdtree, you will journey to new lands, including the Land of Shadows. As you explore this mysterious place, you will discover dark secrets and run into others who followed Empyrean Miquella with ulterior motives. You’ll also discover dungeons with dangerous enemies.

In the main story of Elden Ring, Miquella and his twin sister Malenia were born cursed. This gave Miquella the body of a child forever. He was then chosen to take over Queen Marika’s spot as a new god, but he abandoned this to create the Unalloyed Gold in an attempt to treat his sister’s curse, which has her body rotting away. This involved him embedding himself into the Haligtree in the hope of achieving godhood, but he was abducted during the process by his half-brother Mohg.

So far, it seems like Shadow of the Erdtree will continue Miquella’s storyline.

New content

Shadow of the Erdtree will have new weapons, equipment, weapon skills, and magic that was not previously in Elden Ring. You can use these new powers to take down new enemies and bosses as you explore new plots beyond the main storyline.
