Out of nowhere, FromSoftware has dropped a new trailer for Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree, the first and last expansion for the open-world action RPG. It sees Miquella the Kind (Malenia’s brother) speaking of a “seduction” and “betrayal” from which “Gold arose” and “Shadow was born.” It implies that an incident gave rise to the Lands Between and the Land of Shadow.

An unseen war followed, motivated by Messmer the Impaler, who burned everything to ash. Interestingly, one of the new bosses can be seen attempting to fight him, though it seemingly doesn’t go well. It then sees Miquella abandoning everything to venture to the Land of Shadow, with players looking to follow him.

There are many questions, but since the Land of Shadow is the first place Marika touched, the betrayal may involve her. Time will tell, and with Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree out on June 21st for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC, we’ll find out soon. Stay tuned for more gameplay in the coming weeks.
