In the most recent trailer, there’s a lot more details on the main villain of the DLC, Messmer the Impaler. This powerful demigod has a horrific and destructive reign that Miquella must end by joining forces with new warriors. The trailer also points at what led Miquella to this new and eerie land and why he sacrificed himself.

The Land of Shadow, which is near Mohgwyn Palace, is about the size of Limgrave. You can explore this expansive open world in the DLC as you follow Empyrean Miquella’s previous travels.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree will be released on June 21 for PC, Xbox One Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4.
